Very communicative and responsive

“You’re going to to enjoy working with Andrew. He has excellent design skills and works collaboratively with his clients to achieve their dream in both style and function. All his houses are beautiful, and unique to each client’s desires and to the land they are built upon. He is very communicative and responsive. His attitude is honest and humorous, which leads to good relationships not only with clients but with professional contacts. He will be your guide and ally from beginning to end (or if you wish, just any step along the way), from site selection and design to project/contract management.”

A good listener

“My husband and I interviewed 3 architects before choosing to hire Andrew Willett. The deciding factor for choosing Andrew is that we knew we were a good match. Andrew is smart, talented, and a people-person; but just as importantly, he’s a good listener. Our project was adding a room on the back of our 105 year old Arts and Crafts home, which is in a historic neighborhood. Andrew’s drawings for our room incorporated all the design elements of the existing structure, down to the multi-paned windows all around our house. Because of his adherence to our house’s original features, our plan sailed through the approval process with the Historic Resources Commission. Another unusual aspect of our project involved taking extraordinary measures to protect a 140 year old white oak that is next to the addition. Andrew went the extra step of supervising the excavation around the tree’s roots. We were especially happy that we’d chosen Andrew as our architect when he went to bat for us with the windows and door company for our addition. This company made the windows wrong twice. When they did this the second time, they tried to say their product was satisfactory. I called Andrew in a panic, and he came right over, to meet with the owner of the company. Andrew told him to remove all the windows and door from our property, and to get it right. Since the windows and door cost $12,000, we were glad Andrew was there to advocate for us. Now, three years after the completion of our addition, people are frequently surprised to learn that the room isn’t original to the house. One of the best outcomes of our working with Andrew is that we are now friends.”

Professional, responsive and kind hearted

“Andrew designed many of the homes built by my construction company. A more professional, responsive and kind hearted man and network partner I have not known to date!”

A very knowledgeable, talented designer

“Andrew has an excellent understanding of the construction process and from a builder’s perspective is excellent to work with. He is a very knowledgeable, talented designer and i would highly recommend him to anyone.”

A calm expert

“We asked Andrew to design a mountain home for our one-acre parcel that would be our ‘forever’ home. He was very receptive to our thoughts and helped guide us throughout the process of designing an amazing home. He is extremely responsive, listens carefully to what his client’s needs are, and infuses a wonderful sense of balance, architectural significance, and humor to the project. As first time homebuilders, we were somewhat nervous about the process. We needed a calm expert not only to hear our thoughts but also to teach us about basic construction concepts. Andrew provided all this in a very patient and approachable way. His positive attitude and enthusiasm regarding our project was very encouraging and helpful. His professionalism, ability to meet deadlines, and stay within budget parameters was exemplary. Not only did he create a great architectural design, but also he was instrumental in the successful completion of the construction. Andrew was proactively involved in the oversight of the construction and made sure the project went according to the plan. He carefully reviewed each construction draw and made sure that everything was being done according to his design before authorizing contractor payments. He is a great guy to work with and we’re glad we found him. We highly recommend him to anyone who wants to embark on designing a new home.”

We absolutely recommend Andrew

“We are incredibly pleased with the screened porch that Andrew designed for us! Adding on to a 100-year-old house requires an eye for detail, and Andrew did an outstanding job of seamlessly blending the new with the old. We had a sense for what we wanted, but Andrew’s vision exceeded our expectations. He’s a good listener, he’s easy to work with, and he collaborated well with our builder. He also gave us thoughtful advice as we made decisions about materials and finishes. We absolutely recommend Andrew.”

 Fun and creative

“Andrew has made our home building project both fun and creative. He has a mind for details and helped us navigate the process in a way that balanced both our dreams and our budget. Not only does he bring building process knowledge and creative design skills to the team, he’s also got a great sense of humor and is fun to work with. Highly recommended.”

An absolutely elegant solution

“Having worked with Andrew while working for an architectural mill work company I had a chance to see his work and how he developed ideas. Later when it came time to look for a design professional I knew he was the only person I needed to talk to. I came to him with some ideas for a garage apartment. I was a little worried the job might be to small for him. Not at all. He was gracious and helpful from the first day. The project had several unique criteria as we live in an older neighborhood and wanted to respect our neighbors. I kept having a problem with my design as it was such a small space. The traffic pattern in the space just wasn’t working. Andrew looked at my drawing on the ‘napkin’, moved a door and looked at me with a grin. Absolutely elegant solution provided on the spot. He had earned his money on that one idea as far as I was concerned. He took my ‘napkin ‘ drawing and in just a short time I had exactly what I needed to tic off each of the unique criteria. Some people do what they are meant to. Andrew is one that I know.”

Working with Andrew was a joy!

“We worked with Andrew Willett on an extensive, year-long remodel of our home in 2011. Working with Andrew was a joy! Our house was built in the early 1980’s and it was time to update. We took the house down to the studs and then rebuilt with more modern construction materials. As a result we greatly improved the comfort level of our home- important because we live on the top of a mountain. We modernized both the outside and the inside of our home. Our first attempt at remodeling was disastrous, and we ended up having to terminate our relationship with the original architect. Once Andrew took over we were able to create a wonderful collaborative atmosphere. With his help and the help of our subcontractors, we were able to put together a great team. Not only did Andrew meet all deadlines, but he remained intimately involved in the project from beginning to end. I can’t thank him more.”

We are immensely pleased with the final product

“Prior to working with Andrew, my husband and I had never built a home from the ground up. Once we provided details on our desired style and needs, Andrew drew up a beautiful floor plan. As he worked through the details, Andrew stayed in constant contact, providing various suggestions and alternatives to his design. We are immensely pleased with the final product. I would highly recommend him for anyone looking for an extremely talented, detail-oriented, and wonderfully personable architect”

The ultimate professional

“We began working with Andrew on our plans for our “dream house” in 2015. It took us 2 years to plan and design and 2 years to build. He started our project with a visit to our homesite where he found the “sweet spot” for siting our home. He was the ultimate professional. He listened, offered alternatives, suggested upgrades and solutions, addressed our sometimes silly concerns and provided guidance and advice down to the last detail. During design and construction, Andrew was not afraid to pushback on our desired design elements, instead offering alternatives or other ways to accomplish what we wanted in a more reasonable or cost-effective way. When we became frustrated with the pace of the design process, he would remind us that we needed to stick with the process. And he was right. We love our new home and Andrew worked long and hard to help us realize our dream.”

His knowledge is extensive

“Andrew is an outstanding architect! We have been continually impressed by his intelligence, integrity and professionalism. His knowledge is extensive. He easily maneuvers between the technical aspects of architectural design and the artistry required to bring his client’s dream home into a reality. He is extremely attentive to detail and straightforward in his manner. Andrew is always prompt to address any questions or concerns and patiently explains concepts in layman’s terms. And he has great sense of humor which just makes the whole process fun!” 

Top drawer professional

“We chose Andrew after interviewing two other architects. His plans were elegantly functional, drawn in a timely fashion and once completed, so livable. He communicates well and was tactfully informative when we suggested poor ideas. His recommendations for materials were excellent. He counseled us on different builders and the result has been better than we anticipated. Andrew Willett is top drawer professional.”
