"We are so happy with our decision to work with you and the Nauta Team on our recent renovation project. Nauta Designs has truly unlocked the full potential of our home while respecting our budget by offering creativity and expertise while ensuring we maximize our return. My wife and I are sincerely grateful for your onsite support while dealing with the Halton Conservation Authority.Your experience and depth of knowledge during our discussion with them made the world of difference in getting the design approved. We would have been so disappointed otherwise. Thank you! True believer that the greatest compliment you can offer a service provider or sales individual is a referral. We have shared our positive experience with various acquaintances and loved ones who can't wait to see the final transformation; a few of which are looking to renovate their homes and plan to give you a call. I am confident that you will take great care of them as you have us!"
- Robert Waslyk, Burlingotn, Ontario
"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
