Dear Mr. Shaw:

The plans you developed are some of the most professional and legible plans we have received this year, which is over a thousand.

It is a pleasure to work with quality plans, since what we provide will be more accurate as a result.

Thank you.

Subcontractor Feedback

Barry Shaw is the best! I honestly haven’t met someone who is so knowledgeable, professional, and pays attention to detail like him. His focus on quality work is unmatched. I’ve dealt with many Architects and Contractors before but none took as much pride in their work like he does. He really is amazing and you won’t be disappointed.

I hope all is going well with you your family and business. I wish you much success in all parts of your life.

I just finished watching a 20/20 segment regarding contractors and the problems homeowners had regarding the quality of work.

I have to say I smiled from ear to ear with the positive memories. Your timeliness, coordination of schedules of your subs and the quality of the work make me a very happy camper. Considering my medical issues during the construction, you could have taken advantage of my situation. You were and are a stand-up guy who took care of me.

I look around my house and am so happy. I never want to leave. Thank you for making my retirement years so pleasant.

All our lives the only stories we had heard were how regretful it is to build or remodel and how horrid contractors are…headaches, fights, lawsuits and dissatisfaction were all status quo. Neither of us knew a single person who had an even halfway positive experience remodeling, so we braced ourselves for the battles ahead.

In amazement, we smile smugly to ourselves and say, “What battles?” We have no idea why God saw fit to bless us so wonderfully or how on earth we could have gotten so lucky, but we were, when you landed on our doorstep.

We had a simply flawless experience and it is 100% attributable to your skill and experience. There was not a single argument or disagreement. Bert and I are perfectionists, so you can imagine what a pleasant surprise it was to fine someone even more particular that we.

Barry, we could go on and on, but suffice it to say that we walk around our new house at night and sit in each room, admiring your work, pointing out all the little special touches you did that we love so much and reveling in what a beautiful, architect’s “cottage” you built for us.

We are quite satisfied.

Thank you.

Paraphrasing Plato…It’s not so much the object, but rather the emotion one attaches to the object. And that’s exactly what you did so masterfully in designing and building our Santa Monica home. You brought to life our vision of transforming a circa 1939 English cottage into a sophisticated and contemporary Japanese inspired craftsman. Our appreciation of your talent is validated often by folks passing on foot and by car, stopping to admire both your architectural and landscaping prowess.

What people don’t see from the street is your design penchant for light, space, volume and flow. Even without using a Feng Shui consultant, the house flows effortlessly from old to new and back again with Zen sensibilities.

Quality craftsmanship is abundant here, evidenced by everything form foundation and framing to fit and finish of exterior stucco to solid cherry wood kitchen cabinets and granite counters.

The construction process is never without stumbling blocks and frustrations. Of importance to us, was your attentiveness to construction timelines and ability to marshall subcontractor resources.

P.S. Your enthusiasm is infectious!

Dear Barry:

As the house is coming to completion, I wanted to write you this letter and let you know that I am most grateful and blessed to have had you as the Architect and Contractor.

You did a wonderful job. You worked within my budget and I could not have done this project without your knowledge and guidance. Much thought went into the design and detail. The quality and workmanship is excellent. I cannot believe that it was completed so quickly and no problems.

Barry, it was a pleasure working with you. You were always there watching over my interest as well as being very conscientious and caring as were all who worked for you on the job.

The house is truly beautiful. Again, I want to thank you. You have done a great job and come highly recommended.
