By Design
Portland Maine, ME House Plan Professionals
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!

Steve's Custom Homes, Inc.
Portland Maine, ME House Plan Professionals
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsDecember 3, 2021
Steve was a great partner to work with on our recent net zero Design/Build collaboration! Steve was able to take our detailed list of design requirements and create an incredibly functional home plan that ultimately satisfied all of our needs and desires. Highlights of our project included: - The final home plan was the product of a highly collaborative and iterative design process that relied upon 3D renderings and walkthroughs to test and review the plan at each stage of design. This allowed us to validate the plan and, where necessary, make adjustments before construction actually started. We can honestly say that there is nothing material we would change about the design. - Steve’s extensive background in modular and net zero construction ensured an extremely energy-efficient home (HERS score of 11) - Our building envelope presented some interesting positional challenges that Steve was able to solve elegantly and efficiently. - Steve not only accommodated our desire to do the interior finishing work (i.e., cabinetry, tiling, flooring, painting, etc.) ourselves, but in fact actively facilitated our ability to do so by adjusting his build plan to complete our workshop well before the rest of the house was completed. We love our new home and cannot recommend Steve highly enough! Juergen and Joan Renger Freeport, ME
MGM Builders
Portland Maine, ME House Plan Professionals
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsJanuary 23, 2017
MGM Builders was a great fit for our family. Their team took the time to listen to our vision and share ideas until we had the perfect floor plan. They combined our appreciation for timeless New England style with a variety of modern touches. We love that our home is inviting for our young children, but also a beautiful space for entertaining friends. MGM’s allowances were also a bit more generous than several of the other builders we met. We were able to stay within 3% of our contract price. You won’t find nicer people anywhere. The owners are responsive, honest and fair. The entire MGM team provided personal attention, guidance, patience and a little therapeutic humor throughout the building process. As amateur do-it-yourselfers, it’s fair to say we weren’t the easiest customers so it’s important to mention that we were consistently impressed by the quality of their materials and construction at every stage. We would highly recommend MGM Builders from framing to finish carpentry. They take pride in their work and make customer satisfaction a priority. We had a great experience!
Reiter Architecture & Design

Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsSeptember 22, 2021
Lauren redesigned our old farm house to include an amazing combination of historic charm fused with modern updates. She was consistently diligent, professional and supportive throughout the process. Lauren made design recommendations that considered the way we live and how we wanted to enjoy our home. We talk regularly about how grateful we are to have had someone who took the time to understand our vision and incorporate that with her own expertise and experience. I would highly recommend Reiter Architecture & Design and would not hesitate to use Lauren again for future projects.

Writing to give my highest recommendation for BCB. We just took a Portland cape and did the upstairs double dormers, new bathroom, all new heating and windows, and first floor addition off the back of the house all with a family of four living inside the entire time! Josh and his crew were professional, hard working, responsive, caring and flexible. You couldn’t ask for a better experience! The project was a life changer for us thanks to their guidance and execution.
Kristina Crestin Design
Portland Maine, ME House Plan Professionals
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsJanuary 3, 2013
I have been working with Kristina Crestin Design for over a year now. We began working together when my home renovation was going to be a renovation and then became a complete tear down and rebuild. Kristina is handling ALL of the interior design and decorating details for our custom, 8,000 s.f. dream home - I could not be more pleased with my relationship with Kristina, her design talent, her professionalism and her ORGANIZATION! I have never seen anyone so organized! There are literally thousands of decisions that accompany a custom build of this size and scope, and Kristina has created a path for me to get to the finish line without feeling overwhelmed - that in and of itself is no small task! We meet weekly, and every meeting has specific goals and objectives. Kristina's follow-through with me, with our many vendors, with my architects and my builder is impressive. She has established an excellent working relationship with my entire team, which is critical. Kristina draws on her previous experience and is constantly expanding her own horizons as well. She is a collaborative person by nature and from what I can tell has strong relationships with not only her current and former clients but with other design professionals which is always helpful. Kristina's other clients always seem willing to serve as references for her and open their homes if necessary to showcase Kristina's work to another client. I think that this speaks volumes. Never without a huge smile, Kristina genuinely loves what she does and has (almost) made this process fun for me!! Ha ha, I am a client who has gone kicking and screaming into this, so this says a lot! :--)) She is very honest, and she will definitely give you her opinion, always accounting for differences in taste and style. Kristina is also helping me track our budget and I have been impressed with her commitment to seeing that we make it to the finish line and come in within our budget. Of course, I highly recommend her but only after my house is finished!! :)))

Brayden Tuscher designed our daughters room when we first bought our home 10 years ago, and this year we asked him to design a plan for building up on our original bungalow two bedroom one bath, he put together our dream, now our home is a 2 Story 4 bedroom 2 bath! He’s reliable, dealt with our town with any problems we had with permits, kept everything running smooth throughout this whole process! Highly recommend him. We can’t thank you enough.
Lake Living Consultants
Portland Maine, ME House Plan Professionals
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsDecember 13, 2017
Our experience with Lake Living Consultants was extremely positive start to finish! In the beginning, they worked closely with us to plan and develop our four car garage with an apartment above. Tyler and Scott listened to our ideas, but provided us with new, interesting options that worked with what we envisioned, including where the building fit best on the lot. Estimates for the project were very accurate, which allowed us to stay within budget at the end. The subcontractors chosen were reliable and efficient, while providing high quality workmanship. The project stayed on schedule and Lake Living Consultants kept us well informed of the progress and was there to oversee and inspect the work. Tyler has great ideas and will offer an opinion on color choice and design when you have trouble deciding. In the end, Lake Living Consultants provided us with exactly what we were looking for in quality, functionality and design. We highly recommend using LLC for any construction projects and we would definitely use them again. Rob and Kim Caron
Schatelier Architectural Studio
Portland Maine, ME House Plan Professionals
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsMay 15, 2017
Karina is a joy to work with! My husband and I consulted with Karina to try to figure out how to make our house work for us, my in-laws and our growing family. She had some wonderful ideas about how we could make it work. Ultimately, we decided to buy another house but are looking forward to working with her on my dream kitchen remodel once we get settled. I highly recommend working with her! She is so easy to get along with and really takes the time to understand what your vision is and advise you on what may or may not work. I was also impressed that she didn't want to advise anymore work than was within our budget, saving me the heartbreak of falling in love with something I couldn't ultimately have.
