This architect firm is by far the best we've worked with in Chicagoland area. As one of their suppliers, their designs are thoughtful, functional, beautiful and most importantly accurate. They care about the customer from beginning to end, they don't just hand over the plans and walk away. We are privileged to work with such a company that truly cares about their projects like they were their own children! We highly recommend them!
Chad was fantastic to work with. We did a gut of a 100+ year old house and are ecstatic with the results. This was our first project; Chad walked us through each step with as much, or as little, hand-holding as we wanted. He reworked our space beautifully and was on-site during construction when surprises arose. It is a pretty intense process, and Boomgaarden Architects were a delight to work with. I look forward to working with them on future projects.
Boomgaarden Architects designed our bungalow conversion, counseled through each step of the process, provided referrals- including our General Contractor (who we hired and was terrific), and checked in throughout the project - helping us stay on track and work through issues. Our bungalow conversion maintained the original building's authenticity thanks to Boomgaarden's design and vision, but we have this amazing, expanded and thoughtful new second floor designed exactly for our family's needs.
Boomgaarden Architects were absolutely professional and so easy to work with. They were thorough, timely, accommodating and attentive to our needs. We were operating in a budget so they were very thoughtful and honest about the costs and kept within our budget. I trusted them completely. Most importantly, the work was to the highest standard. I would absolutely use them again and would absolutely recommend them for any size job.
Chad was a great architect to work with, he listened to our ideas and help develop them into our design. He was very flexible and approachable and we would highly recommend him!
Excellent service -- thoughtful, detailed and appropriate for location. Chad did an excellent job designing our basement remodel. Worked well with us and the builder. Helped with the permitting process as well.
Chad was great to work with. He was very prompt, thorough, and easy to work with. He had great design ideas and was also very open to our ideas and wants. He is very talented and good at his work.
We experienced Mr. Boomgaarden as a consummate professional in every aspect of our dealings with him. We were impressed with his obvious design skills and gratified by his always gracious willingness to take time to listen to our input. His communication was excellent, even for the smallest of questions or concerns. Would highly recommend to anyone for a project of any size.
We are very pleased with the design and the service that Chad provided throughout the construction of our first floor addition. He took the time to understand the needs of our family and the challenges that we were facing with the living space in our 100 year old home. His design transformed the layout to meet the needs of our family while still maintaining the original charm of the home. He walked us through the entire process so we understood what to expect from day one to completion and always made himself available to answer any questions that came up along the way. I recommend him and would not hesitate to work with him again on future projects.
I hired Boomgaarden for two projects over the years: one was a ground up house, the other a whole house gut and renovation job. I must say, both turned out great. My passion and standards for architecture are high. I know what I like, but can't always tell someone so unless I see some sketch or vision. In other words, I don't have a lot of imagination, but know what I like. Chad was really helpful in getting me to understand the trade offs of various designs or the thousand and one decisions that must be made when building or fixing up a house. Anyone doing a project would be well advised to consider him an excellent candidate.
After a flood damaged the interior of our home completely we had to find an architect and a builder who would be willing to work with a large loss insurance claim. I found Chad's work on the Internet and felt he had just the right artistic sensibilities to help us recreate the interior of our 100 year old home. After meeting with him, we were convinced that not only did he have the architectural chops to get the job done but he also was both incredibly personable and professional. When the first builder we tried to work with proved unable to move our rebuild forward, Chad suggested the builder who ultimately completed our work in an equally impressive manner. I would highly recommend Chad without hesitation to anyone who is in need of an architect. His work ethic combines an old school professionalism with a fresh perspective that exactly hit the mark for us. Most importantly he is smart, ethical and knows his stuff!
Worked with Chad on a small remodeling. Chad's plans were clear and detailed appropriately for the project. He responded quickly and was available when we needed him.
I've worked with Chad on a few renovation projects and value his practical design sense and flair for balance, scale and unity. On one project in particular, a whole house remodel, he took a completely unworkable first floor layout and transformed it into a open, flowing space that functions perfectly for the clients and looks terrific. Chad is great to work with, easy going and would be a valuable leader and member of any remodeling project team!
