Testimonials

We engaged the services of Michael in mid 2016 on the advice of Bellevue Concepts. Our plan has been to extend and improve dining, kitchen, bathroom and laundry areas in our 90 old home in Brighton. Our idea was to keep the character of the main house and bring more light and facilities into the rear living room and kitchen, plus a new bathroom and laundry. 

Michael has been a pleasure to work with. He readily understood our proposal and gave us his ideas as to how it would work best. He was patient explaining the process, prompt at replying to our many questions and highly efficient in producing detailed designs and overseeing the process of council approval. The final drawings show a design with which we are very happy. We would have no hesitation in recommending Michael for his expertise, professionalism and patience! Alan Atkinson and Margie Pitcher.

We were very happy with the design that Michael provided. He has a particularly good knowledge of how to use existing space and we were thrilled with his ideas of how to incorporate several existing rooms into the new design. 

The sketches and documentation that Michael provided were very detailed and of high quality. His attention to detail was noticed by a number of builders who used the drawings to create their quotes. 

Michael made the early stages of our renovation process easy, by explaining each step clearly and in terms that were easy for us to understand. The costs for each stage were explained thoroughly, so that we knew which fees needed to be paid and when. He answered our endless questions with patience as well as a high level of expertise, which made us realise we had made an excellent choice. 

The job ended up being successful for us, because Michael listened to our responses and suggested minor changes along the way. This resulted in a refined set of drawings and we were able to choose a builder to suit our needs and within our budget. 

Michael’s prices are reasonable, and not as high as several designers that we considered. He put in a lot of effort to make sure we were happy with everything, and continued to check on progress as we moved forward with our selections through the builder. We would recommend Michael to anyone who needs expert design work from start to finish.

I found Michael to be professional, knowledgeable, polite and easy to talk to. Nothing was too difficult, even when I was unsure what I actually wanted or could afford. Michael explained the process of costs and time frames for his services, and I found them very reasonable for the service he provides. Michael was able to provide me with several ideas and drawings to enable me to make some decisions. Michael submitted all work to council, helped me understand what was required and advised me of several engineers, I was happy with the one that he suggested. I found the service Michael provides to be very helpful and of high standard.
