What Our Clients Say

"Y&B quality was excellent. We used them for a major remodel in 2004 and thoroughly enjoyed the process of working with Steve and Dan there. We moved very quickly through design, drafting, plan development and submission. I was very involved in details and liked that they were the type of architects who were open to clients’ opinions. They exceeded our expectations on ease of permitting. From hiring them in March/April, we had permits and began construction at the end of August. They were on or below budget in all phases and I elected to do a lot of the project management, general contractor coordination once we were underway with construction. We had two surprises - one on foundation and one on windows, both of which they resolved in a hands on and fast manner, coming on site and helping to negotiate and resolve the issues with the contractor and distributor/manufacturer. They were 100% supportive of us in the process. Their service couldn't have been better in my mind. I would use them again and hope they will design a dream house from scratch for me one day in the future." Kelly
