Statement About Our Work
We love what we do! We enjoy working with our clients to create homes that reflect their taste and complement the community.
Some clients are remodeling their first home, some are creating a new house, some a vacation house, and some are redoing a house in preparation for retirement.
Our projects are large and small, but their significance to us is not in their size or cost, but in the difference they make to the life of a family. Some of our clients have very limited budgets and are looking for ways to save on every aspect of the project, and some are planning a grand project with a large budget.
We are happy to design a plan that will match the client’s planned expenditure. Occasionally we will arrange to complete the project in several phases to accommodate the budget.
We enjoy working with houses of any style and period ...
... but we want to be sure that clients have open light and flowing spaces that provide the flexibility that modern families need. We enjoy the challenge of making the projects fit their sites and look as if they have always belonged there.
We work with a variety of talented contractors who are eager to compete for our projects. Our bidding process assures our clients of the most competitive pricing, and our project supervision assures that the construction will be completed on time and within the budget.
We are currently designing projects from Cape Cod to the Adirondacks,
however, the majority of our work is in communities surrounding Boston, especially on the South Shore. Previous projects have taken us as far field as California, Florida, and Ohio.
We do not set out to build monuments to our design skills, or to design something in the “Roger Hoit style”… this is YOUR house and it is our job to make it work for you and your family, and to keep it true to it’s own style and allow it to complement the surrounding neighborhood.
