Architect reviews in Santa Rosa

    Walters Architecture
    Bill was great! Santa Rosa had a terrible fire last year. Because of this it has been extremely hard to get an architect to even call you back! Lucky for me Bill has just moved to the area and has not been "discovered" yet. He has many years experience and was professional , creative and very helpful navigating the permit process. We were called out on an illegal garage unit and the city gave us two options, either bring it up to code or turn it back into a garage. I am not a building professional and I had no idea if we were even close to being up to code.Bill help me with every detail and gave me a good idea of what would be involved with the process . To go forward the city wanted what they called "as built drawings" Drawings of the house before the project. He did those and then he did some drawings of what the unit might look like if it were made to be a legal ADU. Then because what was needed was way more extensive than what we wanted to tackle he did drawings of the required plans for the conversion back into a garage. Bill was creative, knowledgeable and professional. He always responded to my messages promptly and started the job immediately and finished it in a timely manner. I found his rates to be reasonable, especially in a time when people are really gouging those in need in this area.

    Excellent, I received 7 different interior designs for a 5,000 sq ft interior atrium. All designs were unique and addressed the what was needed for the space. I can pick and choose any aspects of each design, or negotiate with the winning design for additional services. Cost was very reasonable for what I received. I would recommend using this service. Everything was done over the internet.

    Judy visited us several times to ensure she captured what we wanted. Her guys arrived every day thereafter to work, including weekends, until the job was done. They brought in extra help to finish additional aspects of the job that we added after they started. We communicated every day and because we wanted to reduce the overall cost of the project we were involved in buying some parts from our local Home Depot. Judy and her guys worked with us to make sure we were comfortable while they tore our house apart and replaced every single scrap of wiring in the walls. Judy's guys are great. Felix in particular stands out for going above and beyond what we asked him to do. For example, while crawling around in the basement he noticed our central air heating ducts weren't connecting properly with our vents, so he fixed the problem. How awesome is that?

    Terrible. We approached them in early November 2006. David Lucas, one of the company owners, said we could have the plans by Thanksgiving and the garage built by Christmas. The plans weren't ready until Late February. We told him at the outset we were looking for a $35K garage. He drew up the plans and gave us an estimate for $50K. Then he asks me to sign a form saying that they are not licensed architects and we release them from any liability if the garage fails due to poor plans. We hired someone else to do the building and he pointed out NUMEROUS errors in computation in the plans that made big differences in orders he was placing for materials. For example, they measured the trusses incorrectly on the materials sheet so that when my contractor tried to place an order, he had to redo all the calculations. Our first few meetings with David Lucas were started by a 10 minute sales pitch about how much pride they take in their work. Don't believe it. All talk, no results.
