We hired Bill to develop the plans for a large expansion of our home, and we are extremely happy with our choice. His work product and attention to detail were excellent, and even after the plans were delivered he continued to be with us every step of the way through the construction. He was very responsive to our needs and proactively worked with our general contractor, subcontractors and city inspectors to resolve issues and facilitate the permits we needed. Most importantly, he was laser focused on keeping the project costs within our budget - in fact, our final cost was right in line with the range he provided us before we hired him. The reason that Bill can estimate project costs so closely is because he provides detailed plans (based on customer preferences and feedback) that specify nearly every material for the project. This allows contractors to bid on a very specific plan and reduces the risk that the contractor will substitute in inferior products. Aside from Bill's comprehensive knowledge of engineering minutiae and the prices of nearly every building product, he has a unique eye for aesthetics and for maximizing the use of space. We were able to retain the original character of our split level home while significantly expanding the footprint and increasing the functionality of each hallway, alcove and closet. Additionally, Bill is extremely well respected by contractors, and whenever we had a disagreement with our contractor, we looked to Bill for his impartial view (which always settled the matter). Bill has a passion for his work and for keeping his customers happy, and we would definitely use him again.
