Arch Design's creative genius Lora Vassar designed my kitchen from the ground up. We purchased a fixer upper home, and her vision for my new kitchen was brilliant. She recommended knocking out a wall and removing a low ceiling, both ideas expanded my kitchen space tremendously. I love having the space for a kitchen island and her suggestions allowed us space for a large pantry. All my "wants" were met with a variety of features I could never have envisioned!

Our house was built in 1983. We purchased it in 1996. Over the years since then we have worked with Lora Vassar of Arch Design on three remodeling projects, and on one additional job to repair flood damage from a burst washing machine hose. As is apparent from our repeated use of her services, we consider Lora Vassar to be a consummate professional.
Her designs have helped modernize and improve our house, while working to blend with the original architecture. Job estimates for both schedule and cost are written and detailed, and she brings jobs to completion on time and under budget while insisting on first-quality work and attention to detail.
As a specific example, during remodeling of our master bath she and her team needed to stain woodwork around a connecting door so that it would both complement the new design and match the older woodwork in the master bedroom. This relatively small detail required trying about six different sample stains, finally custom blending two of them to achieve a perfect match. This was not a large-budget item that enhanced Arch Designs' profit margin on the job - but it was important to Lora and her team that it was done right. That care and professionalism has extended to everything they have done on our home.
Our highest recommendation was to refer Arch Designs to friends who were remodeling their home. After that job was completed, they in turn recommended Arch Designs to other friends. Enough said.
I hired Arch Design, Inc. for a complete house remodel to accommodate my mother as she ages. Lora, the owner of Arch Design is the architect, designer and general contractor. She and her crew are phenomenal! The design of the remodel was creative and incorporated excellent use of storage space. The house is only 1300 sq feet, but feels much larger. The quality of the work and expertise of the contractors was far above expectations. The work was done in a timely manner and the respect of the crew for my home while I lived here was outstanding. They did an exceptional job on every aspect of the project! The quality of the workmanship is so good, it will be submitted for an award. I will be posting pictures of the project for your viewing when they become available.
