Addition/Garage Design

We gave Derek ideas for our addition/complete house reno/garage and he made them a reality. Derek is very personable and was very easy to work with during the entire process, suggesting ways to make the design fit both form and function. The result was an amazing house design that looks seamless from old to new. Oh and an amazing detached garage to match!

Being in the trades myself I know how important honesty and integrity are when it comes to providing a service. Not only does Derek exemplify both, he also has the talent to go along with it, which is a rare find these days.

I would highly recommend DA Drafting and Design, 5 stars in all categories.

Thank you Derek,

Jamie & Sarah

Permit Drawings

Not everyone can appreciate how difficult it can be to obtain a building permit (or how important it is to obtain one), but Derek has always made it easier for us to get a permit. As a contractor who promotes doing things the right way with permits, I see everyday how difficult and confusing the building department's system is to navigate... so it is critical to have someone you hire that knows this system, and can help guide you through the process. I highly recommend DA Drafting, and get things done right the first time.

Retirement Home Design

Derek (DA Drafting) designed our new retirement home ready for permit. He was recommended by a friend who built a house in Whitby. He was very easy to work with, very accommodating of our many questions with deep knowledge to help us understand our options and assisted us with our decisions. We appreciate your assistance as we start on the journey to develop our retirement property. I would recommend DA drafting; very reasonable and professional.

Drawings for permit!

Derek came and was very helpful with us as we were new to get drawings done for a permit for our basement. He made suggestions and listened to what we wanted. He is very knowledgeable and drawings were exactly what we wanted. He was efficient and very professional. Highly recommend Derek and his services!

Custom Home Design

I found Derek through a quick search online. Right off the hop he was very personable and easier to collaborate with than anyone else I had spoken with. The timeline for the job was reasonable and the final product was great even after I had asked for multiple changes along the way.

Definitely recommended.

Multiple Projects

Derek has been my trusted source for all my renovation and building projects over the years. We recently hired him to help us design a major exterior update to our current home. We have nothing but amazing things to say about Derek and his knowledge and patience when working with us.

Drafting and home design

I hired a contractor to add a second story to my house. He ended up being a nightmare, destroying my property threatening me and charging me over 160,000 dollars and then refusing to fix his mistakes. Since I had a copy of the drawings I contacted Derek at D.A drafting and asked him for his help finishing my project, and getting my HVAC permit. Derek did a re-submit for me, and send me the needed documents so that I could get my HVAC permit from the city. He was understanding, and honest with me. He did not charge me anything extra for his time, and has been a great help. If the contractor had followed Derek's drawings I would have a beautiful house right now. My new contractor is using the drawings that Derek did and the project is already looking up. I highly recommend D.A drafting.
