Excellent Care & Accessible Design
Remodeling a home is an incredibly intimidating process and there are so many decisions you have to make. If you choose Jeannette Architects, first, every decision that comes after will be easier for you. Jeff and his team are exceptionally skilled, talented, and knowledgeable. Working closely with you, they will use their vast experience to thoughtfully design, plan, and execute on your vision for your home. They will lead you to and refer you to the best providers who will join in executing your vision flawlessly. There is no handoff. Your JA team stays in touch with you from the project’s inception to the final walk through. My husband has a spinal cord injury and requires a wheelchair full time. We required a home with universal design and craved a home that didn’t look “adaptive”. Prior to working with Jeannette Architects, we had always adapted to our home. Now, we live in a home adapted to us. Jeff and his team created a seamless design for our home that meets all of our needs while still offering exceptional, modern, sophisticated design. Our home is beautiful, accessible, adaptive, and comfortable without looking “handicapped” or “adaptive”. Big dreams that come in the form of big remodels take time and it’s important that you like the people you are working with. The Jeannette Architects team are exceptional humans. Remodeling a home is personal. Jeff intuitively gets that. One of the more personal needs for us was planning for future needs my husband may someday have. In planning for ceiling supports in the event that we might someday need a lift, Jeff said : “Yes, we can insure that you have what you need but we can hide everything in the ceiling until you do. You do not need a daily reminder of the future that hasn’t come yet." That is who Jeff is and his values are shared on his entire team. That is how well you will be taken care of and how supported you will feel in the most sensitive, vulnerable, whimsical, or indulgent of requests. Jeff and his team excel at larger scale projects such as ours and are valuable from the first day you think you might need an architect, until your contractor hands you your keys upon project completion. After all, before you knock down those walls, you never really know what you’ll find and it is handy to have an architect available to you throughout the project. You’ll likely need them. If you bring a realistic timeline and a realistic budget, Jeff and his team will have your backs with everything that comes next. Your home will be anything but cookie cutter and while many bemoan construction, you will be grateful that your first big decision in choosing the right architect led to everything you dream of coming next.
