We decided to engage an ID to help us with the design and coordination since it was our first attempt and also due to the time required for such an endeavour if we were to do it on our own.
Even though the quote from Aestherior was not the lowest, Roy gave us the feeling we were looking for i.e. someone whom we could communicate with easily and also someone who was interested in the final product rather than just concerned about the project profits.
Throughout the project, Roy was prompt with his updates and replies and often worked late into the night to address our ceaseless questions. We re-worked the design numerous times but Roy was always patient and focused on delivering what we really wanted. He kept us aware of the economic sense of things as well, for which I was very appreciative of.
Of course, no project is a bed of roses and we encountered our share of problems as well. However, it is never about the problems but more about the attitude on resolving them that matters. Roy’s attitude is unquestionable in this regard.
The end-product that is our home is, in our opinion and many others as well, an elegantly designed and very livable space to call our own. And to top it off, the total cost was a comfortable one too.
In summary, we are very grateful to have been able to work on our first home with Roy and Aestherior and will not hesitate to recommend him to anyone else.
