I'm a new homeowner in Oakland and needed an engineers help with drafting my floorplan for bathroom addition permits. I decided to hire individual contractors without paying the fees of a General Contractor. Oh did I get lucky to have found Mike who not only provided excellent service in drafting but also offered his expertise on design and construction. Mike assisted with my brainstorming and troubleshooting process beyond what I had expected. He was knowledgeable about city regulations and offered sound advice on where to locate fixtures. I appreciate working with Mike to jumpstart the project and would highly recommend him for drafting and engineering services.Jul 21, 2018Verified

I made an appointment with this person and he did not show up. His excuse was ...he came to the front of my house, rang the doorbell and because he said there was no answer so he left. After I waited for over an hour, I called him to asked why he didn’t show. He told me he drove for 1 hr to get to my place and if I want him to come back it will cost. Clearly this person is not liable and a liar. When no one answered the door, he should call or text especially after 1 hr of driving. He gave me such bad vibes...Jul 2, 2020VerifiedMJH Construction Management & design's reply
Chris is a very odd person. This took place in February. Now feels like they want to leave a nasty review. Some clients feel like they have the right to wast your time and not be charged. As you can see from my 5 star reviews, this person is some kind of vindictive mess.
MJH is very professional, responsive and punctual Designer. Michael understands Planning and Building Rules very well. He did Design drawings for my project in Menlo Park. He listens requirements, gives feasible options. Very prompt responses with visual draws( both perspective and functional floor plans). Essentially feedback loop is very quick and extremely helpful. We are working towards getting permits. I would hire him for any of my future projects without any hesitation, as well suggest him to my friends to hire. Overall I am very happy working with him. He is great help.Oct 13, 2019Verified
We consulted Michael for the Garage renovation project. He patiently listened to our ideas and explained the possibilities with the respect to the building code and requirements. Michael is super quick in his work and provided us the complete drawings and rendering in a day or two. Michael will promptly respond to phone calls and text.Dec 9, 2019Verified

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Most important is to listen to the client. And to gather a sense of who they are and how they live. What do they like and, what they don't like.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have years of college education in the design industry. I started in the costruction business as a laborer. To get a thorough knowledge of how things are built. I learned the construction trade. Gradually I started designing.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I love architecture. Creating a beautiful space is an amazing feeling and a work of art that will be around for others to enjoy for many years.
