    We couldn't be more impressed with the work that Steve has done for us. We gave him the near-impossible task of designing a home on a tree-filled lot that wouldn't be too big, but would accommodate us, our children, and any future … More grandchildren we might have. Steve took the time to walk the lot with us last summer, then we gave him some pictures that we hoped would give him at least a general idea of the "feel" we were looking for - and he got it. He understood what we wanted, and designed an absolutely gorgeous home. A design that takes advantage of the lot - with a view out of every window. We all absolutely loved it. Then we had a second meeting with Steve to go over some small tweaks we wanted to make, and he couldn't have been more accommodating - he actually updated his 3D design as we watched on the Zoom call. Steve answered every question, had great advice, and we couldn't be more excited to begin the construction process. Thank you Steve!

    Working with Steve was great. From the beginning, because of his depth of experience, Steve very clearly and quickly "got" the project. He then took the general project ideas and improved upon them skillfully and in detail. His … More use of technoogy is impressive and resulted in clear and smooth communication. He also created a charming exterior and a cozy interior for the house - both of which are beyond my expectations.

  • Avatar Ryan Kenney ★★★★★ a year ago
    Absolutely AMAZING!!!! He came recommended by a friend to us. It was our first time building and he made it so easy. His designs were great. He communicated with us frequently about designs sometimes room by room as he created them. He … More never got frustrated with us for the changes and questions. His designs were awesome and so easy to see the final product with his programs he used to create the design and visual graphics. He did virtual video walk throughs of the house. Single shots of the house and of course detailed colored blueprints. He worked very well with our builder for their requirements and request as well. In addition to allllll of that he was EXTREMELY EFFICIENT AND QUICK along with very affordable!!!
    Thanks so much Steve for making the start of the house building project as easy and fun as it was!!!!
    Not to mention we actually ended keeping lots of his suggested design ideas he put into the house to give it life!

  • Avatar Bryant Russ ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    I can't say enough positive things about working with Steve. Not only does he do terrific work, but he was incredibly prompt to respond to all our questions and requests. My wife and I were coming off of a challenging experience … More with a different architect/builder, and honestly weren't looking forward to beginning the process again. BUT, working with Steve has been such a positive experience that we're excited to build once again. I highly recommend Steve Nyhof!
