We cannot endorse Heidi Hornaday enough. She designed our home in Sawyer, MI and found her to be a wonderful listener, fantastic designer and able to subtly apply her vision over the template of our expectations. Her interpretation of what we wanted was better than we could have imagined. Now, living in the home for while, her design works perfectly with how we live and use the home. It is both beautiful and functional. Heidi was supportive throughout the design and construction process and was very helpful is assisting with the many owner selections required. She is experienced in numerous project types and her implementations never appear repetitive.
Heidi Hornaday is a gifted architect who helped us transform our tired, outdated 1950's ranch on Lake Michigan to a home worthy of it's beautiful setting. From the outset we could tell that Heidi could see the potential of our property and that her talent could turn our home into what we had envisioned. She walked us patiently through the process of the basic design, and helped us to choose a contractor, Landscape Architect, and a variety of local venders. Even after the work began, Heidi kept in close touch with our general contractor, always available to answer questions and give advice. We are thrilled with our completed project and highly recommend Heidi Hornaday.
This architect provided excellent services. The work was extremely professional. In all phases of the construction,she was always available and very timely. The final building was even more beautiful than the blue prints. ,
We hired Heidi Hornaday to design the house of our dreams, within a tight budget. We had toured several homes she had previously designed and none of them looked alike - assuring us that Heidi listens to her customers and designs the homes that they want, not the home she wants to see them in. She offered us three designs, from which we could pick and choose. Fortunately, we (husband and wife) fell in love with the same design and had few changes to request. We worked through the design process with Heidi, adding and tweaking details. She listened to us every step of the way and always made sure we didn't miss important details. She then helped us locate a general contractor (GC). We interviewed three she recommended and selected one who builds just one "ground-up" house a year. We got an estimate and went back to Heidi and the GC stating that we needed to cut $90,000 from the budget. They met and got the price down by $88,000 without us sacrificing any rooms or square footage. They simple moved down one price point in areas like windows and materials. They didn't take us down to the lowest price point or the cheapest model. They assured us we'd never even see the differences and we haven't. We are halfway through building process and Heidi continues to be involved as we make decisions, like lighting and hardware. She is there as little or as much as we require. She is very responsive, well organized, thoughtful, plans ahead, and best of all - listens. Heidi came to us recommended by a family member who wanted to remodel the downstairs kitchen and maids quarters of a summer-only home built in the 1920's, where maids are no longer employed. Heidi created a beautiful kitchen, bedroom, bath and sitting area that is modern, but flows with the older house, and can be sectioned off from the original house and used as a year-round apartment. We highly recommend Heidi Hornaday and would certainly use her again if we ever planned to build another house or simply wanted a design to remodel an existing structure. We have recommended her to other family members and friends and would recommend her to you as well.
