Our project was a ground-up rebuild of a 1350 square foot 1940’s bungalow, completely renovating to (and below) the existing foundation, adding a second floor, with the end result being a new 2700+ square foot modern house. My wife and I had never done a house renovation before, and didn’t know where to start. Jefferson and Su were amazingly helpful from the very beginning to the very end. My wife and I had general ideas about layout and style, along with a list of features that our new house should have. Jefferson and Su were thorough, attentive, and organized as they led us through the process of turning these ideas into first a set of sketches, then a detailed floor plan, and ultimately, a set of construction documents and blueprints. They knew what to ask, when to ask it, and what to do with the information they gathered. When we had our design complete, they were instrumental at helping us find a general contractor, including leading meetings with the GCs. After our GC was chosen and demolition and construction were underway, they were committed through every step, working with the GC and subcontractors on site to ensure that the construction was performed correctly. They were experienced and level-headed when we needed them to help us resolve conflicts with the GC and subcontractors. As the project came to a close, they were still there, helping us deal with things that we weren’t even aware of and wouldn’t have thought would be their responsibility. For example, they helped us obtain lien release documentation from the GC and subcontractors. My wife and I both feel extremely fortunate that we hired Addison Schierbeek and would strongly recommend them to anyone looking for an architect. The design work was first class and they were always a pleasure to work with. Addison Schierbeek exceeded every expectation that we had for an architect.
