Fully gut out renovation with back extension

Mark was such a joy to work with, especially after some prior bad experiences with architects.
We appreciate Mark’s professionalism and consistency the way he conducts his business, at the same time being personable and attentive to his clients. He asked detailed questions, listened carefully and took good notes on our thoughts for the project. The three initial design solutions he proposed were all aligned with our visions and sympathetic to the project limitations. It was easy and hard at the same time to choose one of the plans to go with. Mark encouraged our feedbacks and was very open to adjustments we requested (within contract scope), his focus was always on arriving at a design solution that best suits our needs and budget. He took our project to zoning preview, resolved the kinks through persistent follow-ups with the city, and produced a building permit application that was swiftly approved. We plan to begin construction come next spring. It was through Home Star that we found Mark, with our review it has come a full circle! Of course we highly recommend him and his services.

Mark, thank you for your wonderful work!

Company Response

Wow, Thank you both for your kind words and for providing a wonderful experience working together on this project. It was definitely a team effort and both of you contributed valuable creative insight as well as feedback which was instrumental in making our final design. I am glad my questions, proposals and iteration process was able to capture what you both wanted most for this project and am happy that you are both now excited and ready with final permits in hand to begin construction in the spring. I look forward to seeing your dreams become a reality.
