Camwood Crescent Project

“Dustin Poole of Dustin Design helped develop and finalize the design and its requirements for our major home renovation project. At the start, he inherited a set of poorly executed documents from a previous design contractor and provided permit-ready drawings in short order. He was also able to provide innovative design solutions to many of the challenges that arose from modifying the internal structures of a home. Dustin patiently took the time to understand our requirements, which necessarily changed over time as we saw the realization of the design changes. He also worked well with the construction contractors to ensure that the details of the project were fully understood.”
