Yes [would hire again], I was very pleased overall with his design and detail. Came up with a good plan which I am using.
My wife and I are finishing our basement. There were so many features we wanted, that we were trying to get the proverbial ten pounds of stuff in a five pound bag. When our efforts to come up with a floor plan on our own failed, I went looking for info on the web. I stumbled across John Browning's site, and contacted him. Long story short, he fit all ten pounds in, the layout is stunning, and he pointed out a number of things that we never would have known that saved us a lot of money and headaches down the line. Overall, VERY professional and easy to work with, and an excellent designer.
Thank you John very much for your useful tips and wonderful plans.
We sought basement-finishing bids from several contractors based on our own designs. John made slight modifications to our floor plan that significantly improved the useable space and its livability. John also added significant design features that integrated the basement design with the design of the rest of the house. We couldn't be happier with our basement. This was not the low cost bid, but it was certainly the best.
Friends told me I was foolish to hire someone over the internet to design a plan for our basement remodeling. Paying him in advance I was warned would be a disaster. WELL MY FRIENDS WERE WRONG! John is testimony to the goodness in man. John Browning did an outstanding job of planning our basement. He incorporated all the features we wanted (and there were many), changed and fixed things until we were 100% satisfied. And he did all this happily. We even exchanged little personal greetings over the time we worked together so now I think of him as a friend as well. John is a good man with talent and a wonderful work ethic. YOU WON'T GO WRONG HIRING THIS DESIGNER!
NO, was very upset when I changed my mind on a couple things..
John is a true master of his craft. He has the ability to bring your ideas to reality through the use of computer aided design. If you are in the market for a professional architectural designer who is going to give you straight-forward information and answers, John is your man. Thanks again www.basementdesigner.com!
I engaged BFDS to draft plans for my basement. They did an excellent job planning the space for my basement and fitting in as many extra features that I did not think of in the initial planning session. The project was very reasonable and was approached in a processional manner. I would recommend their design services.
John was very creative in his design for our basement. He led us to consider options that we normally would not. He was patient with our response and was very open to hearing and implementing our ideas for change. We have not begun construction yet but I am certainly looking forward to the finished product. Thanks John!
John exceeded our expectations. We had about 1000 sq ft of basement that we wanted to pack everything possible into. John listened to our wishes and came back with a plan that was incredibly creative, and very functional, without creating wasted space. He also worked through revisions when my wife wasn't quite sure what she wanted - in the end we went with a slight revision of the original design. Working over email/phone worked great - no worries of scheduling or missing appointments. The floorplan drawings are good, but what really helped us were the 3D renderings and the dollhouse views which allowed us to really understand what the space was going to feel like.
John provided an excellent basement design and took all of our concerns into consideration. Our constant communication allowed us to overcome any obstacles in the design process. He provided preliminary drawings to mark up and make changes. He provided great value for his fee.
I would recommend this company to anyone. I live out of state and I submitted pictures what my basement looked like with a wish list and he came up with an excellent blueprint of what my basement will look like when I get done. He finished the blueprint within a couple of weeks of me sending him a lot of pictures and my wish list.
We are so glad we hired John to design our basement. The fee was more than made up in how he maximized the area we had in our basement. He provided solutions to the many problems we had to work around (duct work, window locations, beams). If we had not hired him, I am certain our basement would look like "a finished basement"...instead it looks like the rest of our house with a lot of character and design. YOU WON"T GO WRONG WITH JOHN! He even survived my wife's many ideas and "what if we did this?". We will use him again in the future!!
Yes [would hire again] - design service was speedy and the plans were very detailed. Also appreciated the 3D walkthroughs and dollhouse view. Would like, in the future, for design to take real budget into account up front - initial design was more "cost no object."
John is a great person to work with for a basement design. He took the photos and measurements I gave him and came up with exactly what I wanted. I had struggled for quite some time to get a plan that did not look like I drew it. John thinks outside the box and he will put together a very fluid design that takes advantage of all the space you have available. This plan worked very well to get bids on the project. I am very pleased and I would recommmend John to anyone. Thank you for your hard work John.
John brings a wealth of experience to basement designs. He is a pro who provides great insight and plenty of helpful tips. He fully understands city code, expected costs and the many challenges that a homeowner may face. I can heartily recommend him to anyone seeking basement design assistance and basement finishing services.
We love our basement design that John came up with. We would recommend him to anyone!
I would hire him again, if we were to ever move and need to finish another basement.
John came up with an excellent design and was able to fit things into the design based on our wish list that I would have never thought of or incorporated in such a nice fashion. He answered all of my questions and worked with me thru the entire process. Thanks John!
Basement design: John and I communicated on a regular basis through e-mails and the use of digital photos. I was a little hesitant at first when dealing with an out-of-state service that was done completely through digital photography, my measurements, and my available blue-prints. Although, as the project moved forward, I could tell that John had great vision and ideas. With the help of his computer design software, he continually kept me up-to-date with CAD blueprints and very helpful 3-D designs. The overall end-product was better than I expected and is exactly what I will need to hand in to my village for a building permit. Overall, I am very satisfied with the end result. Throughout the process, I did make several changes to the design and John was accommodating and easy-going about it. He never seemed pushy. He did give his professional opinion about design elements that were critical to the "overall flow" of the project and I suggest that you highly take his advice. My suggestion- think very seriously about what rooms and elements you really need for your basement and communicate this to John through a detailed attachment to his question sheet. Make sure what you call a sitting room, is the same thing that he would call a sitting room, etc. Also- I attached digital photos to give him an idea of what I was looking for. Lucky for me- some of the designs I really liked and I found off the internet where designed by him.
Excellent Design Service! John Browning is highly skilled in matching the space design to the design of the existing structure. Our 2000 sq. ft. walk-out looks like it was designed and built by the builder. The craftsmanship was impeccable from frame to finish.
John provides a great value for the service he provides. Easy to work with he took in all my concerns and provided a quality product that I was able to take to my township for permit. Not only that but he was able to create and visually space that I could not, helping me to get realistic bids from my local contractors and helping me to get the most out of my investment. I would definitely hire again.
"I found his name on the internet and he provided excellent services. We are very happy with our basement and would highly recommend him."
John Browning provided us with the design of our basement finish project and we were very happy with the final design. He had a knack for asking the right questions of us in the planning stages and then using the existing limitations of our space to our best interests. We would highly recommend his design services. One caveat was that we needed to make some on-the-spot decisions regarding details so more exact measurements would be helpful. Other than that, he was GREAT!!!!
John came to the house and spent a couple of hours going over the layout and house construction, taking photos, and understanding the project. After the design, which took about a week, he spent another couple of hours going over the design and working with me on the bid. For what is really a nominal fee, he spent a lot of time on my design. I'd recommend him to anyone.
