Matthew provided quick and professional service. He responded immediately and completed the drawing in a couple days which was much quicker than anyone else at a more than reasonable cost. I would highly recommend and will be using him going forward.

Do what he says he's going to do. Instead of complaining. I sent him a packet as an example of what I needed and instead provided me with one page equaling about 15% of what was agreed upon. Oh, and afterwords informs me he's actually never gone to school for this and is self taught. WTH! Thanks Thumbtack.

Details: New construction • Residential • 1,500 - 2,000 sq ft

I gave a 4 star because he can get the job done but very mediocre. Lacks focus. He will forget things at your home after a visit just like he forgets items you asked him to add to the design. If he says he will have something done by Friday then expect it done by Monday. Expect the work done mediocre. Im sure he can get the job done I just moved on because I don’t have the patience to hold his hand through the process.

Do not waste your time and money with Matthew. His “plans” are far from complete. Was supposed to complete a full plan set for a project AND get the plans submitted by Matthew until a permit was ready to be pulled. Matthew’s “plans” are so elementary that they cannot be used for submittal. He also backed out of handling any submittal. Matthew also asks for your money up front. Will not give you any progress until you pay bills BEFORE the work is done. This is because the work is not even close to actual construction documents or plans. Stay away!!
