Andrew & Andrea Schirmer
We hired Demotte architects in April of 2013 to design a significant indoor/outdoor extension to our 1980 Yates Colonial. From our very first meeting, Brad was punctual, attentive, approachable and receptive to our initial plans and thoughts. More importantly he sought to truly understand us as home owners and people before providing his own opinions on our project. In our first meeting as we started to discuss the current layout of the house and our ideas around a new master suite, porch and deck, Brad was already pulling out tracing paper to indicate some options on our original blueprints. The first set of drawings he shared with us indicated that he was listening very closely to what we wanted and needed while keeping costs and the general scope of the project in mind. When we approved the final drawings, Brad was very helpful in providing us with builder/contractor options and supporting us through the bidding process. He was very helpful in reviewing and commenting on the bids. As we learned from our builder, Brad’s drawings/plans were so detailed and thorough that there were rarely any questions about what needed to be done or what materials needed to be used. Brad also worked very well with our contractor and ensured that he was always available for a visit, consultation or contractor call. We are thrilled with the final product, completed in Oct of ’14 and are experiencing a completely transformed home. We would hire Brad to do another project in a minute and would recommend Demotte Architects to anyone who wants a painless and enjoyable experience with their project.
