We find their design and building consulting services to be professional. Bill Araujo is very knowledgeable in residential construction. We find his architectural drawings are complete and easy to understand. We look forward to doing business with Bill Araujo and the Residential Design and Consulting Group on future projects."

" When our family decided to move from the country to the city, we spent alot of time looking for a home in a nice neighbourhood. When we could not find what we were looking for, we decided to buy a small bungalow, on a large lot in the neighbourhood we wanted to live in and renovate. We hired Bill Araujo at the Residential Design and Consulting Group. He recommended we put a second story with four bedrooms, three bathrooms, develop new elevations, add a new garage and renovate the first floor. The final design that Bill Araujo came up with was beautiful. It's been a while since we renovated and we still enjoy coming home to our beautiful home."

" When our family out grew our existing 1 1/2 Story House ( we love the style ) we decided to completely renovate the existing house and double it's size. We hired Bill Araujo at the Residential Design and Consulting Group. Bill Araujo came up with a lot of ideas. We wanted to build a state of the art house, complete with computerized wiring and an in ground heating system. We also wanted to add a large family room complete with douglas fir wood rafters and cathedral ceilings, double sided stone fireplace, new wood crafted kitchen cabinets, jacuzzi and a Sunroom. Our family also wanted to add a three car garage. Bill Araujo suggested that the space above the garage be used as a games room. Bill Araujo also suggested using Pella windows and doors ( architecture Series ) with a twenty years non-prorated warranty.

The final design that Bill Araujo of the Residential Design and Consulting Group came with was very well planned out. Bill Araujo took full advantage of the technology of the south facing sun throughout the house.We are very happy with our new home.
