When we found this house in 2007, I envisioned it restored to its original beauty. Unexpectedly, in the process, we discovered so many wonderful things and people associated with the Belle House. We were introduced to McCullough architects and told that they were the original designers of the house. Everyone said that McCullough was known for excellently designed houses. The original owner praised Mr. McCullough’s time and energy and attention to detail and on the job supervision of the building process when it was built in 1965. It was an unexpected jewel to find that you (McCullough) still had the original blueprints that your father had drawn 50 years ago. During reconstruction, every single inspector and contrator commented on the quality of design, products used, and excellent condition of the house. But the special pleasure occurred when we were able to work with Julie McCullough Conley. Julie listened to our ideas about adding to this beautiful home while maintaining the Georgian architecture style. Julie listened well and looked at all our sketches and magazine pictures. The front porch, family room, loggia, gallery, office and master bathroom fit the home perfectly. The special details that Julie put in the trim and brick work were great. They look like they have always been a part of the house and enhance the original plan. I think that the front porch really makes the home beautiful from the street. The master bathroom is truly a luxurious place – one that I have never experienced in my own home. It is like being at a luxury hotel every day. I found that the reputation of McCullough was exactly as stated. You (Julie) followed in your father’s footsteps well! Your time and energy and excitement about the project and on-the-job work were exactly as people described your father 50 years ago. It is nice to know that a firm like yours continues with the same great values that it was started with. It was a wonderful pleasure to get to know you! I feel that you are a friend after working with you. It was also an unexpected honor to meet your father and mother and sister. Thank you so much! I love the Belle House! Without you, it would not have been possible.
It was a wonderful experience working with the design team at H.G. McCullough Designers on our house plans, bringing them from a dream to reality. The take thwir clients ideas and wishes and produce the most spectacular results. I sincerely recommend their services to anyone who wants quality work and impeccable design.
Working with H.G. McCullough Designers was a great pleasure. They were able to apply architectural insight and talents in collaboration with the homeowner’s ideas and style to blend concept into reality. Combining technical aspects from the general contractor, the home became a masterpiece. This beautiful home captures the imagination and wonder of classic style in contemporary form and has become an instant classic overlooking the Ohio River. It was a great pleasure working with such a professional team and one I would recommend as a life enhancing experience.
Thank you, the house is coming along as planned – it looks good.
Thank you very much for your help with our house. It isn’t finished yet, but we really like it.

To you and your team, we are most appreciative and grateful. From the beginning of our relationship, you provided great leadership in the design and creative aspects of our new home. You treated every decision as if it were for “your home”. Your firm was organized, most efficient, responsive and provided our family with architectural services that were exemplary. We are so pleased to say that you helped us with this significant project! The process was an enjoyable exercise for our family and one that will be memorable for many years, largely due to the manner in which your organization embraced our project and shepherded it through completion with Leonard Watson and his contractors. Great effort.
Thanks from the Thomasson Family
A note of thanks for your incredible work in the design of your house. It’s just what we hoped it would be and we couldn’t have done it without your design skills and ideas. We’d love to have you stop by if you’d like to see the house.
Brian & Tara E.
Thanks for a job well done! I don’t know how you managed to keep in mind everything we wanted, but you did. We’re continuing our estimates and planning with a goal of Spring to begin the project…Thanks again for your help. You are a very talented designer.

…It was refreshing to get an honest opinion after spending the day with other “professionals”. While a tear down of the subject property was not our desire, future projects we will approach with a more open mind. As a matter of fact, I believe Marty already has left a message for you. Whether it be a new home or potential remodel, we hope to speak with you again.
Geoff & Marty
We love the plan! Framing will probably begin next week. Can’t wait to see the design in reality. Thanks so much to all of you,
The design of the interior entryway flows beautifully with its surroundings, your artistic talents are greatly appreciated, it was a great joy to work on this. Remembering the comment from the patent attorney on your drawings “significantly better than most we receive”.
This is just a note to let you know that Paul was a great person to work with on our plans. He was very professional and provided us great ideas for our new home. Thank you!
Robert & Karen W.
Thanks for the good work.
I just want to thank you so much for working with me, and for coming out to the house. It made it easier to understand. My husband told me I would like your personality, and of course – he was correct…I might need your help a little more again, so you might hear from me.
Thank you for the beautiful fern you sent for our open house…The Browning Funeral Home Project is finished!!! Thank you! Thank you! You should all be very proud of the finished product. The #1 question we receive in the halls….who designed the building!!?? People are impressed with your work. Even the roof lines are mentioned! (make sure to tell Paul) We are so thankful to you for the first class drawings you provided. If they have any extra stock in Tylenol for the staff at H.G. McCullough for the endless hours they spent on our little project. I’d be surprised! Please know you are appreciated more than words can express!
Wayne, Mark, and I are excited about the plans you designed for us! Thank you for your patience and tremendous effort in meeting each of our wants.
The best to you and your family.
Thanks for a great job Harry, Pete, Paul, & Geralyn!
Linn & Chuck
It was a great pleasure working with you all. Thanks for a great job.
At this point our basement walls are poured, and Dave Hurn will begin framing in a few weeks. We’re very pleased with our plans. Please feel free to stop by and see the “fruits of your labors” anytime!
…As always, it was a pleasure being in contact again with everyone. On behalf of all of us at Fountain View, I wish to assure you that we were all extremely pleased with the splendid job you and your firm did on this project. With your ideas incorporated into the project, we are confident that the appearance of the facility will be greatly enhanced and look less institutionalized. Thanks again!
Thank you for the work you have done for us to this point. We are so very pleased with the plans and hope to move on to the next step with you. We have spoken to a builder and are in the process of getting estimates.
Thank you for all your efforts. It’s been a pleasure working with you.
Bill & Sandy
Thank you so very much for your time, drawings, and thoughts. The reason our project can grow is the enthusiasm and efforts of others fanning the flame.
