Knowlegable & Easy to deal with!
I must admit I was apprehensive using the internet for structural requirements but I was pleasantly surprised. Ken listened to my needs, understood my budget and his plans sailed through the permitting process. Thank ken…look forward to doing more in the future!
Beach House Port St. Joe, FL
Ken was very adept at taking our back of the napkin drawings and turning them into a design that is exactly what we were looking for. He was flexible in working with us long distance (AZ) and had great processes in place to keep us up to date and connect whenever necessary. He knows how and when to pull in the right resources to address areas where he recognizes the need for help. This allows for no unnessary delays and a timely end result. We’ve just broken ground right on the beach and are looking forward to living in the house of our dreams! We would highly recommend Ken.
I cannot express the joy of watching our hanger home come to life under the detail oriented guide of Ken. His keen ability, to take our ideas and tweak them to be even better, was a talent that quickly impressed. We would use Ken again in a heart beat Thank you Ken!
Very knowlegeable and fair
Used Ken to provide sealed drawings for a do-it-yourself porch project. He was very sharp and accommodating to my suggestions but I ended up using his design because of it was more attractive as well as easier to build. He is super pleasant to work with, prompt and fair. The code for Florida changed soon after I received the plans and Ken was kind enough to update them for me at no charge. Thanks Ken. Great job.
Ken’s unique combination of experience in engineering, design and contracting was invaluable to me. I really appreciated his insights, suggestions and patience through several changes as we developed our plans. Knowing we have the plans we wanted with solid engineering and field experience in construction behind them gives us the right start for our project. If you’re looking for a designer, speak with Ken and I think you’ll find an expert who cares about his customers. That’s what I was looking for and Ken didn’t disappoint.
All around great experience
From the beginning Ken understood and listened to what we wanted and what our budget was. He was understanding with our design changes and knowledgeable in our high wind area near the coast. He took our idea for a beach style dream home and put it on detailed plans for all my contractors.
Super understanding and great engineer!
Ken was invaluable to get us started in our house renovation. He was punctual, very knowledgeable and best of all, extremely understanding when we would make design changes. I love that he is so technological oriented and we were always able to communicate like he was in Miami next to us! Would use his services again without a doubt!
Responsive, reasonable and efficient
A good combination of technology and experience has made my guest house project a positive one. I really appreciate the quick response time. Thanks Ken!
