Travis designed our waterfront home in Yarmouth, Maine. Throughout the process, he was absolutely terrific to work with. We’d hire him again in a heartbeat. We started with several meetings to talk about general style, size, and specific features we wanted. His first task was to help us decide whether to build on the footprint of the existing home within 75’ of the shore or build back behind the 75’ line. Here, he helped us with general siting and overall budget considerations – sifting through zoning constraints and what he was hearing from us to return a few exterior sketches with corresponding rough layouts. This helped us decide to build on the footprint of the existing structure – and from there we worked from these originals over the course of eight weeks, with the final result being a set of construction documents and specifications that our builder used to price the home and proceed with the build.
Throughout the process he was open to our ideas, conscientious of our budget, and willing to produce multiple options to address different design considerations. He was willing to hand off segments of the detail work to our builder to enable us to save money, but was always available for a consult or visit when we or our builder had questions. Travis is fun to be around, knowledgeable about building options and materials, consistently on time and followed through, doing what he said he’d do time and time again. The result is an absolutely gorgeous home that we will raise our family in – all delivered by our builder within 3% of our original budget and on exactly the timeframe estimated. If we ever have reason to build anything again, Travis will be our first and only call.
