IMG_2484.JPGWe found Cantilever Design from a web search, liked what we saw and read, and so arranged to meet with Chad at our home in northern Wisconsin. We knew after the first meeting with Chad that there was a good fit between us, so we started working with him on the design plans.  Chad was both creative and practical, steering us away from decisions we might come to regret, and making out of the box suggestions that we loved.  He also was open to accepting ideas from others, including some initial design for the renovation produced by my brother (also an architect.)  Throughout all our discussions, we felt that Chad listened very closely to what we said and subsequently incorporated our ideas and wishes into the project.  In addition to his creativity and instinct for classy design, he is an excellent project manager.  He not only managed me and my husband, but — in the best decision we ever made in hiring him — managed the overall project as well, bringing in very good contractors, keeping them on schedule, and ensuring that they did high quality work.  He was at the work site almost daily, sometimes pitching in himself since he has real hands on experience with all aspects of construction.  In the end, our project to completely renovate our north woods home took less time than it took to modestly improve our kitchen in Chicago!  And, we absolutely love our new home.  “Meeting expectations” does not begin to describe how we feel about Chad, the project management and the finished product — our expectations were vastly exceeded!  If you want great design, a fun collaborator, and a task master who gets the job done on time and on budget, hire Cantilever Design.
