Scott Schoel graduated from Auburn University’s school of Architecture in 1988.  After working for several firms in Alabama and Atlanta between 1982 and 1994, he started his own firm in 1994  in Decatur, Alabama.    He is licensed in Alabama, Tennessee, North Carolina and Virginia.  Most of his work is located in these states with a few projects in Colorado, West Virginia, Georgia, and Florida. Schoel’s work and methods are firmly grounded in historical tradition but not limited to a particular style, period, or movement.  The detail, construction methods, historical relevance and popular fashion are what compose each tradition.
