"Everything worked out great with our addition. We will send you some photos when we get a chance. We have taken lots along the way. People walking and driving by stop and admire the house often commenting to us on how good the house looks. They ask when are you moving in? No one can believe it is an addition."
- J & L M
"Thank you for our wonderful house plans! We are very excited to build our new home, and we truly appreciate your professional and personal approach…..we look forward to sending photos of our completed house! Thanks again!"
- Cheryl & Pete D.
"As we are approaching the end of our renovation / addition, we'd like to pass on our 'thanks for a design very well done'. As you know, success is always based on good design and plans, and by the number of comments we've received, Nauta Home Design shares in those accolades - you have taken a standard 'survey' house and made it our custom home. The great room viewing the Niagara escarpment is most impressive. What we are most pleased with is how NHD was able to take our ideas for our lifestyle, and interpret that into a detailed design that works. The 'creative' process was actually enjoyable, as you helped guide us through and make good choices. Our builder, Homes By Hendriks, had no issues with the plans, and even with the changes we made along the way, you and Hendriks worked well to keep the project moving smoothly. Referrals are always the best method of choosing a designer; its how we found Nauta. We'd be pleased to show our home to any of your clients."
- D & R H. Grimsby, Ontario
"Great house plan. Builder took it to the unpainted drywall and we did the rest. Very straight forward and easy to follow."
- Brian T.
"I would recommend your firm to anyone building a home. I am still baffled at how many people have probably been declined their dream home because they didn't have your vision and tenacity for you clients."
