Not Recommended
Excellent skills as an architect, but he has an attitude. He became uncooperative when he heard we wanted to general contract our own project. He actually withheld advice. If he had told us to add a dormer or raise the pitch by just a little, we would have had space for a useable bathroom. He also did not consider an exterior structural design, so a mistake was made that his experience could have prevented.

Mr Boyd was recommended by one of the contractors i was soliciting (and ultimately used) to remodel my home in Vienna. When he came in to survey the property, he had already researched town ordinances, setbacks, and had a pretty good idea of what would be do-able, and what would require varaiances. He was very forth coming about his cost structure, and prospective costs. He recommended that we do a preliminary set of drawings for a nominal cost, during which time he would run the numbers to verify that the design he was developing would not run afoul of town ordinances. He made a number of suggestions that would help contain costs throughout the process; including developing a desiging a comprehensive set of plans that would allow me to phase the remodeling projects should costs become an issue. He was very attentive to what I was seeking to accomplish. He delivered a set of plans that was comprehensive and detailed so that contractors could bid to (ensuring that the bids were comparable for materials and finishes) as well as a drawing package specific to the City of Vienna and another for Fairfax county. Working with Bill couldn't have been a better experience, and was critical to making the entire remodel go smoothly. He is extremely honest and forthcoming, and apologzed that the final job went two hours over his original estimate! I have recommended him to three other people since then, all of whom have had similar experiences.
