TESTIMONIALS

HEAR FROM OUR CLIENTS

“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.”

Camwood Crescent Project
We worked with Dustin Design Drafting on the project to add a 400 square foot second story addition to our family home. The footprint was predetermined, nonetheless Dustin did an excellent job of working with us to maximize the use of space. He collaborated with us, and our contractor, during the design and drafting phase to meet everyone’s needs and specifications. He listened, was flexible, and readily available throughout the course of the project. The result is a beautiful space that we are extremely happy with, and enjoying.

“It was great to work with Dustin and his team on our custom home building plans. Our building site presented may design challenges and the team was able to make the necessary adjustments quickly and efficiently. The finals plans moved through the permit process without any issues. In addition, the ability to get a final CAD version of the plans from Dustin has allowed us to drill down into the details to help the various trades and to make any necessary adjustments quickly during construction.”

We retained the services of Dustin Design and Drafting to design our home due to his knowledge and expertise in construction and design. Throughout the design process, Dustin and Olivia were very responsive and always put us first. We communicated almost daily and they accommodated every change we requested to make the house exactly what we wanted. They took time to explain everything to us. During the building permit application process, their quick response to the city’s questions helped us obtain the permit in a timely manner. We are glad to have made the right decision in hiring Dustin.
