John R. Schroeder, AIA helped us create an exciting Master Plan for our home. They are talented, responsive, meticulous and flexible.
You’ve given us our dream home and by that I mean a home more beautiful than we could have imagined and yet completely suitable to our hectic everyday lives as a family with four young children. You listened to our random ideas and put them together into a design that is better than the sum of its parts. This home is a reflection of us and will grow with us and we are so grateful. It was a pleasure working with you!
Working with John R. Schroeder, AIA was a pleasure. They listened to our vision, translated it into a beautiful design, and held our hands through completion. Their work for us went beyond architectural design to elements of style and decoration. The value of their services is indispensable.
We retained John R. Schroeder, AIA to help us renovate some unfinished spaces of our home. They worked with us from start to finish. We are extremely pleased with the finished product. All our friends and family are unanimous in their praise. Many thanks for a job very well done!
John’s plans were flawless, highly detailed, and allowed each builder to bid without questions. And, equally important, John worked very well with our selected builder to ensure that our new kitchen and addition were exactly what we had intended. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend John or use him again.
We recently completed a major renovation on our home including a 2-story addition and new kitchen. From the initial schematic design to the management of construction, they were fantastic people to work with. The plans and specifications were incredibly detailed, with much care taken to spell out every dimension, material, product, and even construction technique. A major value for us was the level of effort they provided during construction. John and Jared were very responsive to our requests to check on progress or verify if something was being done correctly (as per the specs). John even stopped by unexpectedly on a Saturday morning to ensure the roofer (who showed up on short notice) was putting the right product on the roof….The final cost was the initial cost due to the attention to detail of the drawings and ongoing management. We are very happy with how the project went.
The daunting task of downsizing from our 3000 sf home of 40 years to a 1050 sf condo was successfully achieved with the help of John Schroeder’s firm. Their ability to focus on spaces we used and needed while at the same creating a layout that accentuated our view of the water has created a new home that feels like 3000 sf with all it’s comforts.
My business partner and I had the pleasure of working with John and his team on a full renovation: we converted an almost 200 year old building into a production brewery and taproom. They guided us through the entire renovation process, and offered unique and creative solutions to whatever problems we threw at them. John and his team also helped us find a fantastic GC, and we couldn’t be happier with the space that they designed for us.
It was a pleasure working with John, Jared, and Walter. We recently remodeled our home with 2 new additions and could not have done it without them. From early on in the design process all the way through managing the construction portion, their expertise made for a smooth and enjoyable process. ALL of their work was extremely detailed and meticulous. The house project was completed ahead of schedule which was an added bonus. We would highly recommend John and his team for anyone’s architectural and design needs. It was a true pleasure working with them!
We were very pleased with John Schroeder’s and Jared Hardell’s work on our project. Our goal was to turn our summer cottage into a home for year round living. The challenge to John and Jared, in addition to updating mechanicals, was to reconfigure the first floor to allow for a master bed and bath, add a half bath, maintain the iconic stone fire place, keep the beach vibe of a cottage built in 1940 and do it in the same foot print. They delivered. A reconfigured first floor allowed for a great room with the stone fireplace, bedroom and bath, galley kitchen, laundry and a half bath. Their design skills were evident in the integration of the original 1940’s 2 panel doors, hardware, bead board, wall sconces and fir floors into a newly designed first floor. The aesthetic of the 1940’s cottage was made new. White bead board ceiling, white washed fir floors blend with the gray beach stones in the fireplace. The super functional galley kitchen with great finishes makes the most of a small space. A newly designed covered front porch and a return to exterior cedar shakes have improved on the old, while maintaining a beach cottage vibe. They do great work and we highly recommend them.
We found John Schroeder on Houzz, so he came with great recommendations. He helped us design and set up a garage and a new decking in our garden. The result is just what we wanted, looks good, serves it purpose and most importantly, John and his people did a wonderful job. Not only the design, but all the paperwork, getting a contractor, arranging the necessary surveys. We where away for the while building period and that was not a problem.
I was so pleased working with John and Jared. They were extremely professional, thoughtful and so talented with their design. I appreciated their patient approach to making the right choices for this project. We worked together with Oxford Builders to complete an amazing re-design of the basement (lower) and entire first level living. LOVE the finished project! I would hire them again for any future work.
