"To those seeking professional advice in renovating an older home, Travis Sutherley at Residence By Design would be a great choice as your designer and your project manager. I first met him at one of the "Home and Garden" shows in Edmonton in 2016 and was impressed by his pleasant, courteous manner. Soon after the show, we arranged to meet at my house to discuss my ideas in renovating my 1200 square-foot, 1964-vintage, stucco bungalow.
I liked Travis immediately as he was not a difficult or pushy man who demanded his way over my way. He listened patiently, asked questions to clarify what my wife and I had in mind, and then spent some time at his desk drawing up ideas for our consideration. We talked more after that to finalize a design and discuss colours and other options. I never felt rushed or pressured at any point. Most importantly, I didn't want the renovation to look like everyone else's and so I was very pleased that his final design was much grander than anything I could have imagined.
In regard to the meeting process, Travis always went above and beyond what I had hoped for. He not only answered my questions, but offered more things for me to think about that I would never have considered on my own. He met with local county officials to see if the design would meet their guidelines. He even assembled and screened a group of contractors for my consideration. A renovation is not easy, but Travis made it easier than I thought possible.
The renovation was around $47,000 so it was not a big, expensive project. I am sure the time Travis spent with us might have been more rewarding financially for him with another bigger budget renovation but Travis treated my family as if our project was his top priority. I cannot recommend him and Residence by Design highly enough."

"We contacted Residence By Design for assistance with our basement development and spoke with Travis. We are in a fairly new build, so it would be new construction, but we were unable to envision how to fit our wants & needs into the space. From the initial consultation, to the preliminary drawings and the final 3D renderings, it was a wonderful experience. Travis was professional, knowledgable and extremely prompt with his services. Not only were we satisfied with the design process, but we are also in the midst of having are basement development built and couldn't be happier with the progress. It's amazing to truly see it before the build starts. We would recommend (and have) Residence By Design to anyone!"

"In 2014 my partner and I came across a property that instantly stole our hearts. We weren't in the market for a new house but couldn't pass up the opportunity to call this gem home. The house was lakefront and close to the city, making it the perfect getaway that we could also call home year round. There was only one problem, the house was dated and hideous! Travis at Residence By Design was able to take my measurements and photos of the property and come up with 3D renderings that we were able to take to the bank with us in order to be qualified for a building/renovation mortgage. Not only did it help show the bank that we were serious and able to make the changes to the house that we wanted, but it also helped me deliver that vision to my partner. He couldn't believe it when he saw the renderings. Unfortunately the buyers decided not to sell after all and I wasn't able to see the end results but I know when it's time to build the next house, Residence By Design will be the first call I make."

"Residence by Design was recommended to us through a friend for our basement renovation design. Travis called us and was very flexible on a time to meet at the house to gather information. He took the time to understand exactly what we wanted out of the space and gave us suggestions that were a better fit for the space. His drawings and 3D renderings made it easy to see the space as a finished product and we fell in love with them!! But Travis did not stop there, he helped advise us on a few contractors he would recommend or answer any questions we might have along the way. He is a great pleasure to work with and we look forward to working with him on future renovations!!"

"Travis at Residence By Design was a pleasure to deal with. He was very open to our ideas and was willing to work with us and used his expertise to come up with realistic ideas about how we could improve our home. I would highly recommend Residence By Design to anyone who is interested in creating concept drawings for their home.
