Portland Architects Reviews

"Pat did extensive plans for both projects, went above and beyond to help us go through county approvals, provided engineers as needed for special issues. She is thorough and professional as well as delightful to work with. Even when we changed our plans, she worked to make sure that the final project was exactly what we wanted. Pat was a real pleasure to work with, incredibly creative, and flexible. We would highly recommend her to anyone needing plans or wanting to get support in developing ideas for a construction project.

"I am very happy with my kitchen.
Portland Architects Provider Name Locked
and his crew were conscientious and did everything they said they would do.
Portland Architects Provider Name Locked
had many recommendations about how I could get cost-effective improvements. His recommendation of wainscoting, in particular, was great. In the end, they replaced all the base cabinets, installed a new sink, dishwasher, countertops and splashbacks, removed some unsightly old cabinets and all in all made my kitchen beautiful. With the addition of new flooring and an excellent paint job my kitchen is new again. As I mentioned in my other review,
Portland Architects Provider Name Locked
and his crew are knowledgeable, capable, and conscientious. I was surprised and the amount of creativity and resourcefulness that was called for in remodeling and old kitchen, but
Portland Architects Provider Name Locked
was up to the task. They are my go-to guys from now on.

provide a superb design, with strong attention to the details. He has a great eye for balance, light, and mass - a true artist. Yet he also was exceptionally attentive to the quality of the drawings, which got approved by the City in record time with essentially no changes - that's a real testament to his skill and attention. I couldn't be happier with how things turned out, and am very happy to give
Portland Architects Provider Name Locked
my highest recommendation.

"The design process was relatively painless as we were pretty confident with our style and what we wanted done structurally. We were quoted a design cost of 10% of total project cost which we were comfortable with given we had disclosed our budget threshold in our first meeting and the designer was confident we would be able to have close to the finish product we were looking for. Unfortunately, that was the last conversation we had around the cost of our job. As we moved thru the process there was no outward communication that we were exceeding our budget or that we were running out of design hours based on our original discussion and quote. It was not until we received final designs that we were told the cost of our remodel would be more than DOUBLE our original budget and that the 10% design cost would be applied to that number. To make matters worse the final meeting with the owner was the worst sales experience I have had in a long time. I felt like I was in a used car lot with extreme pressure to BUY NOW.



The most frustrating part of my experience came when I sent an email to designer and owner explaining that we appreciated their proposal but there was no way we could move forward given the price was coming in at double our original budget. The owner responded that he had misinformation on our budget and thought it was much higher than we originally quoted. I still have not heard back from the designer. Needless to say we will not be moving forward.

's crew at MUD has been fantastic to work with.
Portland Architects Provider Name Locked
(Project Manager),
Portland Architects Provider Name Locked
, and
Portland Architects Provider Name Locked
are all extremely personable and have made the process of living through a total renovation as painless as possible. They are very conscientious and are sure to thoroughly clean up the work area at the end of each day, making sure to leave our home as safe as possible for our family. They have been very accommodating of our two children (1 and 4 years old) making sure they warn us in advance if the day's work will be particularly loud and trying to work around nap times as they are able.

This project is a pretty sizable undertaking and they have been able to work well with our architect and structural engineer to ensure it is being done to their exact specifications. Everyone at MUD has been very approachable if we have any questions and great at sharing their opinions if we feel like we need some extra input on some details of the project.

We cannot emphasize enough how pleased we have been with this experience thus far. We are very excited to see how the project turns out when it's complete!

"I recently purchased a 1966 ranch which had not been updated (
Portland Architects Provider Name Locked
wallpaper and paint) since it was built. It has been a challenge to redesign these spaces without destroying the charm and integrity of the era.
Portland Architects Provider Name Locked
came into the project at the recommendation of a contractor. Not only did she have great ideas, she took time and really considered the best solutions, completely open to working with my thoughts and ideas but quick to point out possible caveats.
She measured my house and was promptly prepared with drawings and computer generated renderings of various options when we next met. I was amazed at the creative and innovative ideas for the spaces we were looking at. We spent quite a lot of time going over the drawings until I was clear and we made minor alterations.
Working with

p.s. The value she offers for her hourly rate is outstanding!

"My husband and I contacted
Portland Architects Provider Name Locked
based on other reviews on Angie's List as well as the excellent design/workmanship shown on his website. He listened to our design needs: small structure with ability to store tools, bigger lawn equipment and our bikes as well as need for an aesthetically pleasing structure due to it being in the front of our home.
Portland Architects Provider Name Locked
agreed it would be best to design the shed to match certain elements of our home and designed a similar slope to the roof, matching window, and cedar shakes for siding.
Portland Architects Provider Name Locked
possesses incredible attention to detail and significant pride in his work. The work was completed in a timely manner, as well.
Portland Architects Provider Name Locked
developed a shed that not only fit our needs, but also is beautiful to look at and well worth the expense.

Portland Architects Provider Name Locked
is absoultely wonderful! She listened carefully to our needs and wants, asked plenty of questions, spent a long time at our house considering all the optoins. She was very in tune with our immediate needs (a family of four squished into a small space) and came up with marvelously creative ideas for making our space better in ways that would maintain the feel and look of the existing house. We felt very comfortable communicating with her. We ended up deciding not to hire an architect for this job, but we would TOTALLY consider her again in the future. We're recommending her to all our friends!
