Reference for Mr. Paul Dowsett - Architect To Whom It May Concern: I recently engaged the services of Paul Dowsett for the second time in two years. Paul came highly recommended to me through a close friend of mine who has retained him for renovations and additions to his country home, and for renovations to both his condo and company’s offices in the city. I met Paul just over two and a half years ago and since then have retained him for two large residential projects. The first project was to improve the curb appeal of my home at 54 Balmoral Avenue in Toronto. The fact is, Paul made the house so appealing that it sold within the first twenty-four hours of being listed. The second project I approached Paul about involved helping me with the overall management of a full scale renovation and addition to my new house, which is also on Balmoral. Paul demonstrated great vision, professionalism, pragmatism and creativity throughout the project. He finds solutions and resolutions even when others have thrown their hands up in frustration. After fourteen months, the renovation is nearing completion and I am pleased to say that I hold Paul in even higher esteem than when we started. In addition to his long list of professional talents and experience, Paul is an absolute pleasure to work with, a constant source of reassurance and is there for you until every last detail is done to perfection. I have no hesitation in recommending Paul Dowsett and his new firm, sustainABLE design•build•consult for any project, large or small.
Thanks TM ... somedays it was a head-scratcher trying to figure out how to blend /bend your visions into the physical reality of your existing house ... but it was always worth the effort. To paraphrase the good Dr. Suess, "I puzzed and puzzed until my puzzler was sore." The end result is a testament to your unerring taste. Thank you for trusting me to keep this boat on course and to bring her safely to harbour.
