Chris & Marlene Smith

We were downsizing to a 1966 cape. Because of the location there were zoning restrictions that needed to be addressed. After trying unsuccessfully to work with our neighbor to workout a variance that would satisfy zoning, Brad helped us develop a plan that met the set back requirements. This design required quite a bit more creative work to have the angles, roof lines and structural intersections work in a harmonious way.

My wife and I have done several renovations and new construction and it was a joy to work with Brad because he listened, did not impose his vision but brought thoughtful alternatives that enhance what we envisioned. Renovations never go as smoothly as expected and Brad was always readily available to discuss issues that arouse. He would draw and draft changes in a day or two, instead of the 3 to 4 weeks we had experienced on other projects.

Brad worked very well with our builder and craftsmen. Actually, he was recommended to our builder by one of his craftsmen, who had worked with Brad on other homes. We would be very happy to hire Brad again, but we are hoping that this is our last project – but who knows. We always felt that we received Brad’s full attention whenever we had any questions. He has become a friend through this process.
