I had a wonderful experience working with Lance. Lance kept his promise to finish the bathroom design work and get the city permit on time as he had promised earlier. He was professional, responsive, punctual, and competitive in price. I strongly recommend Lance for any design work. Thanks Lance.Dec 11, 2018Verified

Lance was very professional and finished my plans in a timely manner. Was willing to make any corrections needed and has offered to answer any questions I have as we move along with the construction process.Apr 12, 2018VerifiedStudio Stratton Inc.'s reply
Thank you Martha! I am really looking forward to seeing the completed project.
Lance did an amazing job designing plans for my addition! His artistic skills and knowledge of construction are incredible. Lance designs by hand so he is knowledgeable of everything he is incorporating into the design. In addition to his skills i have really enjoyed working with him, happy to have made a friend in this process. Look forward to working with him in the future!Feb 22, 2018VerifiedStudio Stratton Inc.'s reply
Thanks for the business Rob, and for the kind review! I'm sure we will do more in the future.
I received quotes from several draftsmen before choosing to work with Lance. He was very professional, and gave us a very competitive quote. The final drawings are very thorough, and he was honest about his recommendations. Our contractor has begun referring him to other clients, as well.Jan 10, 2018Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Typically I charge by the sq.ft. for new construction, but with remodels and room additions, I have to price it on a case by case basis.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?The process varies depending on the need, but we always start out with a tel con and a site visit so that I can understand what is needed. Typically I work in two phases: 1) Design 2) working drawings. In the design phase we help our customer figure out what they want, and in the working drawings phase we figure out the most cost effective way to put it together. That's the readers digest version...
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I grew up in a contractors home. Both my father and my older brother ran successful general contracting businesses and I began doing design work for them when I was 14 years old. I took classes through the Regional Occupational Program and was certified as a draftsman before I graduated high school. At that point I went to work in an architects office. I apprenticed under some of San Diego's finest residential architects including Jim Geldert, Don Edson, and Trip Bennett. I have provided drawings for over 500 new homes, and thousands of additions and remodeling projects in the San Diego area over the past 30 years.
