Laura is fabulous. From our very first meeting we knew we had made the right decision. She spent a great deal of time flushing out our requirements and desires before presenting any ideas. All her concepts and ideas were in line with our wants and needs. She is highly focussed on you and works tirelessly to get you where you want all the while being mindful of zoning requirements. After several revisions of our space plan she will be taking all care of all drawings and permits going forward. We are looking forward to the next stage and have full confidence in Bravehart.

Thanks! It has been fun working with you on evolution of house plan. The house design has improved due to discussions and alterations. It will be a beautiful modern edifice with lots of space, light and luxurious look and feel - even though we will be judicious with spending. Appreciate having you as customers as your communication skills are excellent and that makes this process much more effective (and fun!)

Laura has been instrumental with the renovation of our 100-year-old semi. From the beginning, she is quick to respond to emails and calls and is always available, even while on vacation! She conceptualized several designs for our renovation, paying particular attention to details, ensuring that every kitchen cupboard has a purpose, plenty of space in the living room, and adding a bedroom and bathroom to increase the value of the house. The final design ensured we would bypass COA. She helped us with the zoning application and building permit. Laura helped us see the potential in our house, which we would have missed. Her attention to detail and candor are second to none.

Thanks. Appreciate your review as know we were in a tough place regarding some previous designs you had - and while it's important to 'not rock the boat' or waste client's time, it's equally important that clients do get the best space plan solution for their space; whether it is their home or an investment.
Wishing you all the best with construction.

Laura drew several plans, various configurations, for a 1700 sq. ft. condominium. As two academics we needed specific spaces created: dining and living spaces, a large library space, 2 work spaces, room for visiting guests or grandchildren, and space for filing cabinets. Her knowledge of spatial requirements, detailed plans and functional suggestions helped to visualize and maximum limited space. I had a few ideas, but I was not sure they would work - with Laura's assistance a final plan with drawings were prepared for the condo board in very short time! Thank you!

Our project required knowledge of zoning, conservation, building and architectural/interior design disciplines - the people at Bravehart brought this to us. They provided alternative workable ideas on how to transform our house into a more functional, bright and comfortable space, showing us preliminary budgetary scopes along with the designs.
We are currently assessing which approach is the best one for us - however, we have no hesitation in saying that we are pleased with their work and would recommend them to other people wanting to transform their homes

Your house transformation could go a few different ways and glad you wanted to explore before deciding. Linking the possibilities with the budgets for each is a very important step. Many people don't realize how important space planning/pre-construction planning is to a project and glad you do. It's a pleasure working with you and know we will find the right solution to permit and build.

We were planning to build our dream home and contacted many builders, as well as Bravehart Building.
We liked the approach of Bravehart Building where their design planning approach links the scope of the project with the budget for construction.
They seemed trustworthy and enthusiastic.
Now that we have our building permit and have started construction, we are happy to report that we made the right decision to work with Bravehart Building on our dream home.

Thank you for your confidence in our firm. The project is a highly customized house design - accommodating many features on a difficult lot, as the lot has a creek bed running through it.
We continue to refine the project design to ensure the construction process is thought out in detail before we start framing.
We enjoy working with you as you clearly understand that working a process requires adjustments and discussions, before moving on to the next stage.

We selected Bravehart Building to Design and Build our dream home in Richmond Hill for our family. They were able to take our existing split level home and turn it into a 3 storey, 3 car garage home, with functions for ourselves, parents and siblings - a multi-generational home!

Now we are at the stage of Excavation and Footings work and very pleased with the rapid progress and Site reports and pictures we receive frequently from Bill Wallace.

We do not hesitate to recommend their work.

With foundations approved, we are ready to move to the next stage. We look forward to the framing portion of the project and have had some fun selecting the final finishes for the exterior to ensure all parts will 'fit' together with relative ease of building.
We thank you for your patience with this process as there are many details to cover and we know that busy clients need appropriate information presented before making final decisions.
There will be plenty more decisions required over the next while and we look forward to sorting out all details, before each stage is required to be built, so that we may stay ahead of the game!

Thanks for your review and comments. Functionality in a kitchen is the most important factor. Having the items you need at your fingertips, at the moment you need them, is mission critical. Sorting these details out in advance may seem tiring, but it's really the best way to maximize the cabinetry design. Enjoy cooking up a storm and thanks for the support.

We hired Laura to help us on a full gut project in Etobicoke.
We are happy with the optimized layout for Main floor and basement from Laura. For a long and narrow footprint, Laura sure makes the space more functional and user-friendly.

Thanks for your review as this space was tight! And we did it, fit in the requirements people want, such as - open plan, lots of light, storage, great kitchen storage with island, dining area with alcove and main floor powder room - all while making the space look much larger than it actually is!!!
We appreciate you taking the time to share your experience.

Laura presents a number of unique design options that echo our need and personal style. Her designs are always bigger and better than we had hoped for. This is our fourth major project with Bravehart and we have been incredibly pleased with the results of their work.

Finalizing the mood, colour scheme and elements of a master ensuite is a very personal and challenging task. We are happy to present 4 different design colour schemes you can work with - after having provided 3 different space plans for selection of one.
The new TV and fireplace feature wall is not only much better ergonomically (your husband had to twist his neck previously!!!) but also makes a big statement in the room and anchors the space together.
We were also happy to present different options for additional storage solutions for all of your clothes and shoes - and a new powder room in the same area!
Now you never have to leave the space!
All we need to add is the coffee maker!!!!

We called Bravehart Building for the design of our kitchen and increased storage on our main floor.
Laura came and reviewed our existing space which is too small and does not have enough storage or an area for my friends to sit and talk while I cook.
While it was clear that we could not change the size of the space, due to a staircase and a powder room just outside the kitchen entry, Laura did come up with a plan for more storage and social interaction in the kitchen. She added a big “breakfast bar” for four people, with cabinetry underneath for additional storage. She added a large pantry in an area where we had no storage before and made recommendations for new cabinet sizes in the cooking area itself.
We are very pleased and think her ideas, her work is very thoughtful. We would have no hesitation recommending Bravehart for space planning or architectural ideas.

Thanks for your comprehensive review. This space is challenging as we were unable to move the walls, due to a number of reasons, and this resulted in having to be focused on best solutions for work spaces, entertaining spaces and storage. Know your family has a very robust social life so all were equally important to deliver in a very small, existing area. Look forward to the final result!
Thanks for your business and your help in refining the space and cabinetry plan.
