I really can’t say enough about Greg’s service and skills. He did a fabulous job on the design of our house but more, he helped us to think of all kinds of things that we hadn’t thought of, and supported that with very practical solutions. Greg was always very friendly, professional and constantly went the extra mile to give us exactly what we wanted.
Greg also uses modern software design tools and was able to give us visuals so that we could see the design and changes in three-dimensional virtual reality. Greg was also very reasonable in pricing, better than others we looked at. We would definitely recommend Greg for any of your novel house plan designs.
Thanks so very much Angus for your kind review, we try to strive to offer the very best in custom home design services, and try to go above and beyond that of most other design firms or architects. It is nice to have clients like yourself that notice the difference that 40 some years of custom home design experience can bring to the table, thanks so much for being such great clients to work with.
Greg and his team did a fabulous job on many interior features of our home and especially the banisters and custom spindles for our stairway. Greg also installed and finished all of our doors and custom interior window frames. Any concerns and issues were promptly and pleasantly addressed. Greg was a pleasure to work with and the quality of his work is outstanding!
Thank so much Angus for the kind words, I am glad to see you are enjoying your new home, I was a pleasure doing work for you.
My house is on a wood foundation and the rear wall was bowing in , my friends husband used to build wood foundations and he was going to do the job doubling up the studs to straighten the wall.(this can be done if the bow isn't too severe) Well because of the drought and he has cattle he became too busy and couldn.t fit it in, also he lost his help.
I came across Landen Design and Build and I called Greg, He was very helpful and even though they are busy they managed to fit in my job. Darren a master carpenter came out to Okotoks and got it done and the wall is now straight..
I would highly recommend this company.
Thanks Nancy for your positive review and kind words, we aim to please no matte the size of project, glad we could help you with our 40 some years of PWF foundation experience, if you ever need anything else done please let us know, thanks again for you great review.
I had the privilege to work with Greg on this project. A little back story, My original Custom Designer quit on me out of no where (IN JUNE), and in a shocked and disappointed state of mind i went online to search for a back up Designer that would help me design and plan my home. Everyone was backed up and had a wait time of 6-8 months before they could help me get my plans certified. Greg on the other hand, had the heart to personal call me up the day after my submitting, and speak with me for nearly an hour to see what it was exactly i was looking for and what my timeline was. He told me to send over anything I had and he would go from there. So everything was done from my end the way he said. He called back and made sure our conversation wasn't rushed. He was Super easy to talk with and with sending information back and forth. A few days later he sent me my first draft, and after that he went ahead with 2 other Ideal drafts just to give me options. Greg really knows his stuff, and Im so happy i got paired up with him. So far Im loving everything from customer service to Communication to the professionalism that Greg and his team brought forward. And YES!! All that was free!! And yes I'm finishing my plans with Landen Design, not because my options were limited, but because I'm happy with were I'm at. I don't need to keep my options open no more, I highly recommend this Team and will gladly spread the word around my community.
Thanks so much Elizabeth for your kind words and great review, I am so glad to see that you appreciate our complementary preliminary architectural design and consultation services, where we at Landen offer potential clients like you up to 30 hours of "real" CAD architectural design and 3-D rendering work at no charge. I am also happy to hear that you plan to move forward with our full architectural planning services after receiving our no charge preliminary planning.
The main reason we offer our complementary no charge design service is because we like to show our potential clients like you what we can do for them "up-front" with no cost to the client and no further commitment required by the client to move forward with Landen, in other words no strings attached, the same as you have experienced using our FREE architectural design service.
The second reason we offer this no charge design service is because, like you, most clients that take us up on our "no charge" preliminary design offer, tend to also become our full fledged clients, and fully complete their building plans with us, and in many cases also build with us, in fact our batting average has been well over 90%. I also want to thank you for spreading the word around in your community about what we offer here at Landen Design Build. We look forward to working with you on your new custom home build.
I could not be happier with the work that has been done. I would highly recommend Landen Design Build for any work - Greg has been there and done that and it shows!! Always free with advice and alternatives - he shares his experience willingly. Estimates came in exactly as expected. Quality workmanship.
Thanks Kari for the positive review, in these tough times of COVID and unreliable availability of supplies and services, it nice to know that our clients appreciate the hard work and services that we provide Thanks again for being a great client.
Quote was very reasonable for the quality of the work. Really appreciated the amount of knowledge and experience brought to the project. Offered solutions with the quote and plan that no other renovator offered. High level of commitment to the project. Always followed through on commitments and timelines.
Thanks Tom for letting us renovate your home three times now, we look forward to working with you in the future when you need any more work done.
We lived at our house for 30+ years. We had separate Kitchen/dinning/room. We wanted to modernize it using the open concept, but did know how.
There were many challenges, especially the chimney, sky light etc
We talked to a few contractors, but each one gave us different perspectives. We did not trust any one them. They made the project very complicated.
Then I approached our long friend Steve. He introduced us to Greg of Landen Development. He have us a preliminary design. We accepted his proposal, because he seemed to know what he was doing. We decided to go with the design and build concept, no fixed budget
Given that, we were not sure what the end product would look like, we just felt it would be more in line with what we were asking more.
Well it t turned out much better than we expected. We cant believe how Greg transformed into something that is so amazing, beautiful, practical and spacious. All I can say, Greg has amazing design skills. He is very innovative.
His subcontractors are very diligent, they always asked what we wanted, then worked with us to ensure they meet our needs.
We sent a lot of money, but it was well worth the price. We got something we will always enjoy.
Greg Genereux did an excellent job in my kitchen renovation. His workmanship was first rate and his price was the winning bid. Greg also shared lots of helpful advice and suggestions. I'm very happy with the work he did.
Thanks Andy, I am glad to see you are enjoying your kitchen renovation that we did for you, look forward to working with you again some day.
