My project was two projects in one, first for the demolition and rebuilding of a detached garage then the a complete remodeling of a house. For both the garage and house, Lily managed the project up to the point of hand-off to the general contractor. This work included: creating five sets of architectural drawings for each structure [10 total] plus a site plan, working with the city building department and helping me with additional steps that had to be taken such as getting a site survey and asbestos abatement.

Lili was very professional and a pleasure to work with. My neighborhood is a good one but not a wealthy one. The project was very expensive--the garage was completely demolished and replace and the house reduced to the sub-floor and a few studs. Lily was concerned, because of the location, that I would not be able to get out what I put into it if I had to sell the house after the remodel. She had a real estate friend price the house before and after the remodel--based on the size and configuration of the house I wanted. Then we talked over the pros and cons of remodeling versus moving and the costs involved. I greatly appreciated having a knowledgeable person to work this out with. She did not have to do this and if I had decided to move she would have been out almost all of her fee.

Lili represented me to the city building department in a way that I could not have done on my own. She knew my needs and she knew how to talk to city representatives. She also was good at finding design solutions for me that would fit within the code requirements of the city.

Lili was very helpful, professional and responsive in a huge once-in-a-lifetime project. The result is a very beautiful house that my friends and neighbors love and that is a pleasure for me to live in.
