"I have known Stephen personally and professionally for over 20 years. Professionally he is one of the very best. He's down to earth, he listens
to your ideas and then applies his expertise to them.

The results are amazing. You get big firm knowledge and experience
coupled with small firm personalized service. You work directly with the
person who's doing the work. He's not inexpensive but he is an incredible value"

"Stephen & Ane redesigned our Master Suite, closet and both Bathrooms.
They also designed the removal of a support post in our garage, and
helped us find a builder.

Stephen was professional, prompt and helpful. We feel that we got more
than our money's worth."

"Steve helped us design our current home back in the late 1990's.
He was able to convert our rough communication of our desires
and wishes into a solid plan that reflected them accurately.

The resulting home suits us perfectly and draws many compliments
from visitors and passersby alike.

Steve was also able to help us resolve some of the stickier problems
we encountered and incoporated some interesting and creative elements that would never have occured to us, but are crucial to the character of the final product.

I would be very pleased to work with Steve again."

"Stephen has designed custom remodel homes for me.

He is extremely prompt, he is very talented, he is very user-friendly.

He always has the customer in mind; I was more than impressed with his ability to talk with my clients or me. He was fair in his prices and his designs were excellent."

"We hired Stephen for two major remodels on our home.

After doing such a brilliant job on the first phase, we didn't even consider a different bidder for the second phase. He and his wife Ane did a gorgeous job on our home.

We would look forward to working with Stephen again if we have a next project, and wouldn't even consider looking to hire anyone else for the job."

"I have worked with Steve Peterson on multiple projects and have always been very pleased with not only the creativity of his designs, but also in how he interacts with our clients.

He is professional yet friendly, always open to suggestions and willing to do what it takes to make the project come to fruition.
I will use him again and highly recommend him."

"I could tell Steve had real design talent the first time we met
in his office. Even though his resume’ was first class, when I saw the stunning examples of his past work I was pretty impressed.

Starting with a rough sketch, Steve and I worked together over several months to capture exactly what I wanted and refine it onto a unique building that met my needs and exceeded my expectations. He communicated well and asked the right questions as we worked through the project.

Steve worked within my budget constraints and there were no surprises. He went beyond providing the basic set of plans by helping me assemble the entire package of drawings, site layouts and supporting documents required by the county.

Steve went the extra mile by accompanying me on several
visits with the county planning commission and best of all, his
drawings were accepted by the county without any problems.

Everyone that sees my building is astounded by the clean lines, the fit to the lot and attention to detail. I rate Steve “highly recommended.”"

We hired Steve to design our retirement dream home on a shy acre near Woodinville.
We had spent many months researching home plans available online and nothing really fit with our property and our needs.

Steve listened carefully to our combination of likes, dislikes, desires, goals and budgetary limits. He designed a delightfully lovely, unique and practical home for us that exceeded our expectations and stayed within our financial boundaries. His work shows a perfect blend of engineering skill, architectural competence and artistic gifts.
The fact that he is fun to work with is an extra bonus. We give him our highest recommendation.
