Total home renovation

Looking at my home today, what a difference!! My husband and I had no idea what we were getting into with this renovation. When we first met with Steve he took the time to listen to what we wanted our four bedroom bungalow to look like. His patience, knowledge and professionalism is what got this project started. We would not hesitate to recommend Steve to anyone. Thank you for all your help in the making of your home!!

Ania, Thank you for the excellent review and feedback. It was a real pleasure working with you and your family. I enjoyed the process of working on the 2 projects. I am so happy that everything worked out. The open concept on the ground floor was a big decision and the right decision. It's always great and rewarding working with clients such as yourselves and getting such nice feedback!

2 Story Rear Addition, Garage and Enclosed Porch

We consulted with Steve on developing plans for a two-story rear addition, detached garage and enclosed porch. His proposal was detailed, thorough and fairly priced. Over the two months we worked with Steve, we were impressed by his knowledge of the neighbourhood, attention to detail, and experience in preparing for Committee. He personally met with one of our neighbors to help ease their concerns and helped develop a revised proposal that ensured our variances would pass without major concern from neighbors. We would absolutely recommend working with Steve.

Architecture drawings and design support

I highly recommend Steven at Lindy Consulting Limited. Steven produced beautiful and professional work for us. He graciously provided many iterations of our drawings. He was always responsive- available by phone and responding quickly to emails. He got our permits quickly and dealt with every issue promptly as it arose. If every trade was like Steven, renovations would be effortless!

Dear L It has been a pleasure working with you and D ! I really look forward to see the project completed. The Permit approval process went very smooth, and you have made some excellent decisions and choices for the overall look and design. It is great when clients know what they like and can be decisive.

Addition/reno

Although I thought I had it all together, this project got a bit overwhelming. Lindy Consulting, in particular, Steve Lindy guided me through to its completion. I couldn't be happier with the outcome. But more so, with going with this group.

Entire house Renovation

Kim and Paul in the Beaches
We highly recommend Lindy Consulting Limited for your Architectural design needs. Steven Lindy was friendly and very helpful in explaining the complicated system of designs for our big renovation. We hired Lindy Architect through a recommendation and we found him to be the right fit for our project. The scope of our work was quite extensive and included an open-concept main level and kitchen with an exterior deck and walkout, re-planning of the basement, and renovations on the second floor. He has provided us with fantastic architectural advice, and has worked well with the rest of the team. He is very knowledgeable in structural issues and energy efficiency as well as how to obtain city permits quickly and efficiently. We had absolutely no issues with the city permits which I was expecting after everything else I have heard. Steven helped us greatly starting with 3D renderings providing several options for the design of the space. He then quickly translated those into detailed permit drawings for Toronto building permit approvals. If you are starting the daunting task of getting into home renovations, you should definitely consider Steven for the job.

Bay window and Mudroom

We recently added a bay window and a new Mudroom to our home. Thank you Lindy Architect for the designs and for the fantastic results!

Our contractor recommended Lindy Architect for two projects that required architectural design and permit from the city. Some technical issues related to structure and waterproofing were very important for us. The plans made by Steve were clear, detailed and directly addressed the issues.

Steve's patience, attention to details and flexibility have been greatly appreciated. He made numerous site visits and showed interest and dedication to our project.

He communicated well and answered all of our calls and emails professionally and promptly, and his professional input was always a benefit to the outcome of the project.
We would definitely recommend Lindy Architect.

Extensive interior and exterior renovations

We would highly recommend Lindy Architect for being not only a very good and efficient architect,but also a very knowledgeable design and renovation advisor. Steven guided us through the Approvals process, helped us find a really excellent contractor and helped us with the designs as well including the selection of interior finishes including floorings,countertop finishes, appliances, bathroom fittings etc. In this regard he brought us to many showrooms to assist this process. Steven has not just been a drafting and approvals service but our renovations advisor every step of the way.
The scope of the work included permit drawings,new kitchen and open concept design, new basement design, new exterior
deck and walk out .
He has given us excellent service and continues to do so

Rear addition, kitchen/family room full reno

We hired Steven to help us design our addition and open concept kitchen/family room. We are in a 100-yr old home house in a desirable neighbourhood but the kitchen does not have room for a dishwasher!!
So glad we decided to work with Steven. A project like this in a location where we are means lots and lots of reviews and approvals by the City. He recently represented us at the Committee of Adjustment hearing and got the approval in less than 5 minutes. Aside from his professionalism, he is very easy to work with, very patient with great sense of humor. We cannot wait for the project to get started and to see the end results!!
Highly recommend Steven!

Kitchen re-design and some structural work

We worked with Steven on the redesign of our kitchen in our older home. The project also involved moving some walls and creating a downstairs bathroom. Steven was very good at coming up with design solutions that make best use of the space available. He also had a very good sense of the technical issues involved in making changes to an older property and worked with his own structural engineer where needed. The permit drawings were very detailed and captured the design we wanted. Steven handled the whole process of applying for the City of Toronto building permit, which was issued very quickly and without difficulty. We’re now ready to meet with contractors and obtain quotes.
Steven’s professionalism and customer service has made it very easy to bring the project this far and we’d definitely work with him again if we were planning a future construction or renovation project.
