Creative design.


Great architecture exists because great clients exist. We seek out partners who have the vision to commit and the faith to pursue thoughtful design solutions, as our homes homes are ultimately a collaboration of us both. Our designs are custom expressions of each individual client’s need and budget. Good design and economy are intrinsically linked, and Fine Line has a wealth of job experience throughout the world that can successfully address any design challenge.

We work with stick and stone, log and timber, rammed earth and steel and in a variety of building styles and techniques. Our projects begin as a direct response to the site, and are developed for the lifestyle and aesthetic needs of our clients. Each client brings different goals, priorities and budgets to their home and to our relationship together. We strive to make our projects move forward in a straight line from start to finish, while remaining flexible and responsive to the unexpected.


Our services include custom residential design involving a wide range of styles and building materials, remodel designs, as-built drawings, construction documentation, quality control, construction administration, 3D renderings and animation, stock plans, site analysis, sun studies, energy analysis, interactive 3D models, and so much more.

  • Mark Wagner helped us design, from scratch, our roughly 3500 SF home. His creativity, knowledge, and excellent communication skills resulted in a very smooth design and architectural review process. I would highly recommend Mark to anyone in need of an architectural design professional.

  • Mark designed our 2014 Spring Parade Home in Eagle Idaho. Mark is very creative and easy to work with. Mark’s floor plans have a great flow and his elevations are attractive. I hope to build many more homes from Fine Line Studio.

  • We hired Mark to design a custom Honka Log Home for one of our clients. With our focus on providing the highest quality log homes available it is imperative that we start with a professional and competent architect. Mark has provided this service for our clients on multiple projects.

  • I hired Mark Wagner to design a timber frame activity building for our family farm. Mark did an excellent job. He was patient with my family because they had many changes to what started out an a simple floorplan and ended up a not so simple floorplan.

  • I have used Mark and his services for over 15 years on at least five different projects. I think they care about their clients and the projects they work on and how their work is viewed. Some architects are just design people, Mark understands construction, and is a builders’ architect. His designs remain artistic, contemporary, creative, timeless, innovative and functional. Their work is done on time, on budget, without mistakes that would cost me valuable time and money. Mark and his team figures things out the first time. For these and many other reasons I highly recommend Mark and Fine Line Studio.

  • Mark designed our dream log cabin for us, and that was no easy job since we had to stay on budget but had a long wish list! What I most appreciated is that during the design process he was quick to show us visually what some of our requests would do to the overall plan. When our thoughts didn’t work out Mark would throw us various options and was very creative in presenting alternatives. The cabin we ended up building is perfect and hardly a day goes by when we don’t thank Mark for some of the fantastic design concepts!
