After completing my counters, I rehired Steve to complete the rest of my home remodel. I had him take out an entry into the garage, frame it shut. He took out a closet and made that the new entry. He than replaced two windows and put in a new window where he had to cut out stucco and do substantial frame work. I also had him take out a sliding glass door and frame the opening shut. I than had him remove the old siding and replace it with hardy board siding. Throughout this entire process, Steve has communicated any issues that come up in a professional manner and has given solutions and accommodations so that my pocket book wouldn't break. Steve's attention to detail has been amazing. I had him design and build a cabinet for a combo microwave oven unit, and was thoroughly happy with the finished product. He than installed my kitchen hood and went through all of the electrical in my home. Steve has done an amazing job and I would highly recommend him for any of your needs.
We called Chris to remove a huge tree and build a fence in our back yard. No one else was willing to take on the tree removal and Chris accepted the challenge and did a great job removing it. The fence he built is so nice to look at and we get nothing but compliments on it.
Archwork provides brilliant architectural services and much-needed project management. When I bought my fixer home, I decided to again engage their services after having a successful experience with a prior home. Although I was confident with my home purchase, I had little idea of the architectural solution. They consulted with me to gain an understanding of my goals before going to work -- budget, living needs, design/style preference and return on investment. It was truly a collaborative effort. Even through some expected design disagreements, we were able to reach solutions that satisfied both of us. Thankfully, they were never willing to compromise design integrity. As for the final product, I couldn't be happier. The design for maximizing the usable space and value of my home was spot on. I know it was a difficult challenge to retrofit new construction into the existing structure, but they succeeded in creating a seamless solution.
1) The architect had us read about house designs and collect photos of houses and features we like, and talked with us at length to help us clarify our tastes and intentions for the house. 2) She visited potential builders with us and discussed the plans with them before they bid on the project. 3) She created a very intelligently designed house for our challenging situation: The lot is on a street with some very old houses, all of which have their own unique and definite characters; our house had to be compatible with the neighborhood and yet be true to our preferences and tastes. She accomplished this by using some of the same external materials and colors used by the other houses. The lot is extremely narrow with significant setbacks and, of course, we did not want to feel like we were living in a tunnel, so she varied the floor and ceiling heights and provided a great deal of light. Because of the lot's size, the house had to be small, but we didn't want to feel cooped up and claustrophobic; she addressed this with multiple patios and access to the outside from everywhere in the house with large windows and french doors. Ojai can be very hot in the summer, but we don't like air conditioning, so she studied the site's sun and shade and the slope of the land and placed windows strategically so as to use hot air's tendency to rise to suck in cool air from the lowest parts of the house, thereby giving us a small, cool breeze when we need it. She also put no windows on the hot side of the house. We like to spend time outdoors, but since the house takes up most of the lot, she had to find ways to create multiple, small outdoor spaces of what remained of the lot. No space went to waste. And we wanted privacy without being fenced in, despite being right on top of our new neighbors. She solved this problem by discretely positioning the windows and doors and strategically dedicating space for plantings. Our tastes favor, what seemed to us to be, disparate types: Japanese, Midwestern, California Mission. These had to be tastefully integrated. We like color, but we wanted the house to feel cozy and restful as well as happy and lively. By emphasizing natural materials, dark colors and hues below and bright ones higher up she successfully achieved both of these objectives. 4) During construction she worked closely with us and the builder (and at times with the subs) to assure plans were followed exactly. She upheld the integrity of the design and kept us informed on the implications of the decisions we were being asked to make during construction. She suggested specific material, fixture and color options. Before we engaged an architect, I had sketched many floor plans that I liked, but I must say that it would have been a serious mistake to build any of them. I know people who have built the house they designed and ended up dissatisfied in one respect or another. Professionals identify and solve problems you don't even know you have, and they do it before problems become costly headaches or irreparable mistakes. You are making a big financial and emotional investment when you build. I very strongly recommend finding a professional who actively listens to you, is effective at communicating their thoughts, and is not afraid to tell you where you may be making a mistake. In the end, you make the decisions, but it's best to make them with full knowledge and expert advice. The steps I've described above all turned out to be critical to our getting the "perfect jewel" we envisioned and keeping the project within budget.
Design Build California helped us tremendously during our kitchen remodel. I asked their opinion on every step and decision. Jakes feedback and knowledge was hands down the most up to date with style. The company is savvy and can make a room look just as you are imaging it. I will use them in the future for more remodeling as he is so kind and helpful and very affordable!!!
Thank you Douglas. Did a great job for a great price and in a timely manner. We'll be in touch in the future. -Ian W.
Initial consultation went great, very experienced engineer with industry connections.
The project went very smooth and quickly. He sent me an initial drawing and followed up with a phone call and completed the job.
Michael was extremely thorough in carrying out sun and shade studies for our complex to evaluate the impact of a new development next door. He went much further than requested and reviewed the development's architectural drawings to identify not only specific issues for our complex, but also offer detailed design solutions that we were then able to take to the city's planning commission. I strongly recommend Michael for his vivid design acumen and strong work ethic to anyone needing hands-on and innovative architectural design services..
Skylights make great additions to our home. Not only do they provide natural light, but they also increase our homes market value and comfort level. At night, you can even look at the stars through your roof window. We can reap the benefits of skylights by having us at Mls Roofing & Waterproofing install skylights onto our roof.
