I loved working with Chad on my remodeling project.  We had an idea of what we wanted, and Chad quickly came up with a design that exceeded our expectations with several features that we had not considered before.  He consulted with other experts, created easy to understand drawings, and was very personable in all our interactions.  One builder we spoke with when getting estimates even commented on the quality of the drawings.  It was overall a great experience.

Chad Bruning and his team are a pleasure to work with.  We have collaborated with Chad on several projects that include a wide variety of designs and use groups.  His experience allows his team to bring an excellent balance of creative design and project management throughout the design and construction processes. He carries a realistic and professional attitude throughout each project that guides them from preliminary ideas to reality.  We fully appreciate Chad’s design instincts, organizational skills, open minded approach and look forward to more successful projects in the future.”

“I’m happy to give Chad Bruning a 5 out of 5 star rating!  This is my first experience in building a home, and I was fortunate to have a professional like Chad along on this journey.  At each step along the way, from our first meeting when he helped us dream to the final development of the architectural plans, he served as an expert, a sounding board for ideas, and a reality check as we turned a vision into a set of plans.  He was sensitive to our interests in a home, and gentle but firm when he had to say “that’s not a good idea”.  I’m excited that the final plans are a combination of our wishes/needs and the realities of a workable plan”
