Cottage Remodel


"I want to share my experience in dealing with Gerard O'Rourke with regard to the advice and immense help we have received with our custom home design project.

We had run into an issue with our house design project, and we found it quite difficult to find professional help in dealing with this matter.

After quite a bit of time researching and looking for someone who could assist us, we decided to seek Gerard’s professional advice. 

With his comprehensive advice we were able to make design and build adjustments that have improved the project as well as reduced the construction cost. That advice alone definitely paid for itself in savings associated with the build.

We would like to add that Gerard is very knowledgeable in all aspects of any part of design and construction practices.

Gerard, looking forward working with you next time!"

Best Regards,

"We found Gerard on the internet.

He was very prompt to call us back to talk to us.

We found his price reasonable and had plans for our new garage drawn up in adequate time.

When we needed a revision done on the drawings, he helped us with that promptly.

We were very happy with everything."
