Major addition and reno to existing


Where would I even start to say thanks for the awesome job you did – this amazing home would not have happened if not for you. We love it and could not be happier.

When we began, this was not an easy project for so many reasons. It’s hard to recall all of that, now that this perfect place is here. We had many specific ideas and requirements, the site had its own requirements, and we knew what we wanted – and yet they were all only concepts. The challenge of turning those ideas into an integrated, functional and beautiful home was beyond us, and we needed the right person who could work with our ideas. We are so grateful that we found you!

You were entirely respectful of all of our ideas and requirements, you were completely patient in exploring options and alternatives, and you came up with new perspectives and ideas we simply would never have had. Your overall vision for the place was fantastic and at the same time your attention to detail was stunning.

Anyone who never saw the original cottage can’t believe that this was not built as a single building all at one time, and anyone who did see the original is blown away by the result. The function and flow of the practical spaces are exactly what we needed, and the aesthetics, both interior and exterior, are exactly “us” – you nailed it all.

The highlight of the entire project was the day I first saw your design drawings, the product of all of our discussions. The ideas had come to life in a way better than we would have dreamed, and as you know, we changed virtually nothing from that very first draft. You had done such a good job that it was as if you had been on a journey inside my head. I still marvel.

You were always professional, timely and very responsive. It was a true pleasure working together.

And so we have the perfect dream home and working space – we love it every day.

Thank you!

Raymond McDougall
