For our addition project we have contacted few architects based on HomeStars reviews. We have had discussions with 3 companies to see how they can understand our needs, how they work, etc. Out of the group, Rocco was the one getting us the confidence of a trouble free collaboration. Within days after signing the contract he was here measuring the existing house and listen to what we want to do. Less than a week after, he provided the first set of drawings, in person. While it wasn't what we wanted, he was open to listen to us. It took us few weeks to modify the plans. Rocco was open to our changes and quickly updated the plans. To complete the them, took us several emails back and forth with modifications and by the end of Jan 2014 we've got the Permit from the Building Department. Our project is documented online: www.reno1budget.com Communication with Rocco was effective, he was open to discuss, offered answers to our questions. Very knowledgeable in the fields of design and city bylaws; he was giving us the right advice in order to avoid the project being sent to the Committee of Adjustment and at the same time achieve our needs and wants. Strongly recommend Rocco for your next project.
