Featured Reviews for House Plan Companies in Portland Maine

By Design
House Plan Companies in Portland Maine
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsAugust 25, 2013
“We highly recommend architect Bruce Butler of By Design. He has been wonderful to work with, and we are delighted with our new home. We had never built a house before--nor did we think it was in the cards for us to do so--so we were complete novices when we began. Bruce was very patient with our lack of knowledge and did an excellent job of educating us on the process. Based on information he gathered from us, he presented us with an initial plan that matched our vision! After that, our discussions with him were primarily regarding materials and finishes. Our dealings with Bruce were done from a distance as we lived a half-dozen states away from our building site. Regardless of this, the process was seamless. Bruce also effectively acted on our behalf with the town Planning Board and Code Enforcement Officer. Without making a single change, they signed off on our plans the very night he presented them. He also participated in our meetings with prospective builders and made field trips to see their work. Additionally, he was very proactive on pursuing cost- and energy-saving options. We interviewed other architects before selecting Bruce. After the fact, one of the other firms asked us whom we selected. We told them and they said, "Bruce does great work, I think you'll be in good hands." There’s no question that we were!”

Reiter Architecture & Design
House Plan Companies in Portland Maine
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsSeptember 2, 2021
“We used Lauren for a complete remodel including kitchen, multiple bathrooms, playroom, and bedroom. We used her for complete architectural and interior design. She was with us from start to finish of the project and we owe the success to her. Lauren has great design skills which is completely obvious by viewing her portfolio. The equally as helpful (and likely more important) skills that she brings to the table are her attention to detail and her perseverance in dealing with the contractors. She is there at every meeting to crack the proverbial whip and is very responsive (NYC responsive ;) to email/ phone/ text. I have and will continue to recommend her without reservation.”
Robert A. Lenahan Architect AIA PLLC
House Plan Companies in Portland Maine
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsNovember 12, 2014
“It is my pleasure to write a review for Robert Lenahan. We hired Robert to help us with the renovation of our kitchen. I cannot say enough about Roberts thoroughness, his knowledge and understanding of what we were hoping to accomplish, his strong work ethic and above all, his ability to listen to his clients and make them feel comfortable and secure in decisions that were being made. Roberts gregarious personality is a bonus when it comes to working with other professionals. I would recommend anyone looking for a wonderful outcome to their project to hire Robert Lenahan. We are thrilled with our new kitchen and we are grateful to Robert for his professional expertise!”
Mottram Architecture
House Plan Companies in Portland Maine
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsMay 16, 2014
“Mottram Architecture is the reason our remodel is so functional still till this day. She took the time to listen to our ideas, asked numerous questions, and really got a feel for what we wanted out of the project. Then took our old farm house and walked us through several different design possibilities which incorporated new ideas and thoughts. Much of this helped us understand what we wanted out of each area and how much space we truly wanted in each room. Mottram Architecture helped throughout the project answering questions that the contractors had. We are thoroughly happy with the finished product. The functional use of space and getting what you want out of a project even when you might not know exactly what you want is the reason we would use Mottram Architecture again and recommend using them for a remodel or new build.”
Leslie Benson Designs
House Plan Companies in Portland Maine
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsMay 15, 2017
“We were referred to Leslie as we already deep in the permitting process of a small but still complex garage rehab (into office + living space). Having cobbled together some form of a design halfway between a napkin drawing and a not-to-scale artistic rendering using our own resources, we asked Leslie to think about what made the most sense for our space- oh, and btw, could she do it very quickly. Many architects would have laughed us off at that point saying it was too late in the game and that we couldn't possibly get it done. But Leslie didn't flinch. Within a week she had drawn up new plans that detailed some cool options for flow through our fairly tight space. She even added elements that made the carpenters love her- like where to hide vents and piping etc. Every detail was thought of. In the end, we love the building and the design that Leslie put together. It's bright, open, and fits a lot into a small space. Leslie is a charming, honest, and extremely knowledgeable individual. She is an excellent architect and an even better person- we can't recommend her enough for projects big or small.”

“I've had the pleasure of working with Kevin on several new construction residential projects. He creates beautiful homes that reflect the client's values and design styles. Each project he has been very receptive to collaboration and making sure the whole design is thought out / realized.”
Richard Renner Architects
House Plan Companies in Portland Maine
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsNovember 26, 2013
“Knowledgeable. Resourceful. Pragmatic. (And they produce great designs, too.) Richard Renner Architects transformed our home. We hired Richard Renner Architects (RRA) with two objectives in mind. First, we wanted to live in a Net Zero home, which produced more total energy than it used. And second, we wanted to make our home a lot more attractive. In the end, we got more than we bargained for. For starters, our home’s energy total consumption (and attending carbon footprint) dropped by about 70%. When we add solar panels next year, our home will actually produce more total energy than it uses, putting us firmly into what the energy geeks call Carbon Negative territory. Along the way, our home went from ugly to handsome. Every time I look at the “before” and “after” pictures, I’m delighted. Especially when I consider how cost-effectively RRA managed to achieve the transformation. Most of our project budget went to energy conservation, leaving architect and builder with very little money to make things beautiful. You may never see our home in Architectural Digest, but it makes me smile every time I walk up the driveway. And now, to the “more than we bargained for” part of the story. Thanks to the design and construction methodology RRA drove, our home isn’t just a little more comfortable–it’s radically more comfortable. On the coldest winter day, every room feels cozy and warm. On a 100-degree summer day one can sit in my attic without breaking a sweat (even without the central air-conditioning running). The basement isn’t damp anymore. And the indoor air quality improved dramatically. Richard Renner Architects assembled a rock-star team. They say it’s not what you know, it’s who you know. Sometimes it’s both. Richard and his team have deep knowledge and terrific design instincts. But they’re not builders. Fortunately, they seem to know “all the right people” when it comes to getting the job done. Richard helped us assemble a rock-star team of builders and engineers (with all the skills and none of the attitude). Right from the start, it was obvious that everyone on the team enjoyed working with Richard. He did a terrific job of managing our project–especially through the inevitable bumps in the road. On time and on budget. No, really. After suffering one “start-up” delay (our new windows arrived late) the project ran on time and on budget. And, remarkably, we’re still friendly with everyone who worked on our project. Full-disclosure. I don’t work for RRA and I never have. I’m a real, live customer. If you’ve decided to work with RRA, ask Richard to put us in touch if you’d like to hear more. Good luck with your project.”
Kevin Moquin Architect
House Plan Companies in Portland Maine
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsFebruary 2, 2014
“We have a small house, 1100 sq ft, in Portland Maine. When we began meeting with Kevin we thought we would need an addition to improve our space. Kevin helped us to see we could save a major amount of money by keeping our current footprint. He is extraordinarily knowledgeable with design and building codes. He is an excellent listener, reliable, punctual, friendly, honest and over all great to work with! The best part is his services are very reasonably priced and he will come to you for meetings. He has had some great ideas and we could most definitely recommend him.”
