I hired Bolt Design Studio in early August 2007 for our family room addition project. It was the home improvement project I did not know much about the process. I wanted to have a plan drawn to submit to City of San Jose and to get the approval with building permit as soon as practical. I searched the web and chose the Bolt Design Studio due to the content of their web site. I thought if the web site is so helpful the designer/architect must be very good as well. I am glad I did. Bolt Design Studio provided service promptly and professionally. Specifically, I was impressed with: 1). Professional how to – they came and started doing work from a square one (I did not have any house measurement information). They measured and recorded the whole house components; 2). Willingness to help me understand the plan so that I can make personal choice decisions; 3). Good communications via phone, email and office visit; 4). The professional fee is very reasonable and competitive; 5). They accommodated my need very well by kept asking what I want, proposing what I did not think or know about it. They even shared with me how to select a contractor and what is the current average construction cost for similar project. In less than 3 weeks I have the plan submitted and approved. The building is now in progress and scheduled to be completed at my original completion date. Thanks to Bolt Design Studio. A job well done and I would highly recommend them.
