As a structural engineer practicing in Arizona for the past 20 years I can honestly say that John is one of the rare home designers with a background in construction that give him a huge advantage in a functional design. He understands how load paths work and how to resolve them by designing spaces that can be framed and supported with economy in mind leading to lower construction costs. I know when I'm doing a project with John that it has been thoughtfully designed and detailed making my job easier.
I am writing this letter as a testimonial for the services provided by John Anthony Drafting. For the past year I have worked hand in hand with John to help us with our vision in building our dream home. At no one time has he failed to respond or keep me in the loop. Attention to details, listening, and communication are some of the key attributes you will find with John. Never made us feel like we are asking too much. Advice on less expensive alternatives, like Value Engineering which also improves quality.
First time John met us was at the undeveloped property and listened to all the ideas and concerns that we had. Within a few days of this meeting John had already done background research and told me the possible paths that I could take. This was done prior to even hiring him. John brought along amazing expertise that also involved use of 3D rendering that is second to none. The initial feedback from friends and family viewing John’s 3D, was they thought our home was already built, when I told them this is a concept 3D everyone was floored.
John has surrounded himself with experts that supports his vison of giving unparalleled service. At every turn John is there to keep things moving.
Thank you John for making my vision stress free and designing a truly magnificent house. Way to go!
I couldn’t be more thrilled with the services provide by John Anthony Drafting & Design. Prior to choosing John Anthony Designs, I met with several architects but felt so many of them were all in their own worlds without any interest in what my intentions were for the home. I wanted something clean and modern that fit with the comforts of my lifestyle. John listened to my needs and offered so much insight along with some fantastic recommendations. Every detail was well thought out. Most importantly, with his previous experience in construction as an expert carpenter, he knows his stuff. Everything was clearly defined in the blueprints for our contractor, which was instrumental in keeping our project on budget. I recommend his services to anyone looking for construction knowledge, quality service, awesome designs, and a great eye for detail.
As a custom home builder, I've had the privilege of working with John Anthony on dozens of projects. I have worked with John on client builds as well as personal builds. John is one of the best in the industry. Not only is he great at architectural design, but he has also been in the trenches of construction and understands what his takes to build his designs. John offers a wealth of knowledge and value in both the architectural design and construction plans. We look forward to building many more projects with John and would highly recommend him.
John, all we can say is WOW!!!. We love the plans. I wish we had found you earlier, it would have saved us a lot of time, money and stress.
Again, thank you!
Choosing John Anthony as my architectural designer was one of my best decision on my first building project. His building knowledge and willingness to listen to my early concepts, created a great design/plan. His 3D rendering brought the house from paper to reality. I was able to take the plan to the city and get approval, then hire sub-contractors to build. The resulting modern industrial style home truly exceeded expectation. I give him my highest recommendation.
John Anthony knocked it out of the park for my wife and me!
One of our biggest fears starting the design build of our new home was having an architect that would take our vision and turn it into something we didn't want. To prevent this, my wife and I spent hours on a scale drawing of our "vision". We are not architects, but we knew where we wanted our walls to go. John took our scale drawing and turned it into a highly functional floor plan that matched and stuck with our original version perfectly. The only changes made to our floor plan were for the better and all the changes made greatly enhanced our original ideas.
John also came up through the trades and is highly knowledgeable in most aspects of what it takes to actually put a house together from a contractors perspective. This knowledge was put into our blue prints and allowed our plans to sail through the city inspection process as well as making it much easier for the individual trades people to bid on them and then construct the actual house.
It turned out great! Thanks John Anthony. Fantastic job!!!
I've had the privilege of working with John on several projects, all of which turned out exceptionally well due to his foresight during the design and planning process. John was able to ask the right questions to not only help the homeowner decide what they wanted, by also to help in the efficiency of the overall project, weather it be a new build or renovation. One of the key's to John's success is his construction background which in turn allows him to see the project from a builders perspective during the design process. As a General Contractor this is a huge benefit for both the client and the builder on any project. John also has the ability to create amazing 3D photorealistic renderings enabling the client to see the home before it's even built. I would recommend John to anyone, he is a pleasure to work with.
With some creative and innovative design solutions, John Anthony has been able to resolve some problematic structural elements in some of our recent remodeling projects. His building background coupled with his design abilities, allow him to arrive at practical and pleasing solutions. We look forward to many more projects with John in the years to come.
John, I just wanted to let you know I picked up the approved prints yesterday, and to say that working with you was easy and efficient.
Hopefully I receive more jobs in the near future that will require your services.
