“We are in awe of the creativity and knowledge that Angela and Aaron bring to the table. They have taken our wish list for our complex renovation and guided the process as their amazing plan became a reality. We have had multiple contractors comment during the process about how pleased they are about their knowledge and thorough architectural design. We will absolutely use their expertise for future projects. We would not hesitate to recommend them!”Whitney and Justin B.
“Working with Aaron was one of the best parts of the home building process. Aaron did a great job of listening to what we wanted from our home. He paid close attention to both form and function during our conversations. Ultimately, Aaron impressed us with a creative unique design that fit exactly what we were looking for. The help Aaron provided during the construction process was equally important. He was on site regularly to make sure the builder and the subs were correctly executing every detail of the design. When questions came up Aaron was always ready to dig in and find a solution that gave us what we wanted. We will absolutely work with Aaron again on our next project.”AJ J.
“We have done two major projects now with Angela, our kitchen and now our basement remodel. I cannot say enough about how wonderful she has been throughout the entire design process. Angela really listens to what we are trying to achieve and through her design, makes our ideas into reality. She incorporates such creative solutions for our practical everyday needs and manages to make everything look beautiful as well. We couldn’t be happier with how everything has turned out!”Barbara E.
