"Unable to afford an architect's fees, I scoured the Internet looking for the perfect house plan. The more I looked, the more discouraged I got --I just couldn't find anything that was "me"! That's when I called Kit.
The first day I met Kit, I handed him a giant stack of badly drawn scribbles, a bunch of "internet stock plans" that had a few features I liked, magazine pictures of home features I liked and disliked, a site plan that had a long list of restrictions, and a VERY long laundry list of additional requirements (financial goals, aesthetic goals, space needs, etc). Kit listened patiently, then went to work. Two weeks later he presented me with a plan that was close to perfect -- somehow, he was able to disseminate my giant list of random thoughts to a house plan I loved on the very first try! A couple of drafts later to tweak the details & I had a plan that was sufficient to give to a builder.
A strong sense of design, the knowledge of a builder, and the organizational ability to accommodate my every-expanding needs and wants allowed Kit to translate my dreams into reality."
"With a small split-level home, limited space, and the need for more room the task at hand was to design an edition that gave us everything we wanted.
Kit Rautio gave us exactly what we needed to make this happen. His knowledge of the industry, quick service, and his unique creativity brought to life plans much better than we dreamed. A spacious family room, fireplace, and new kitchen design with added space upstairs is perfect.
We were able to sit with Kit, toss around seemingly wild ideas and get input that has proved to be priceless. All this completed to town specifications and careful consideration of our budget.
We would recommend this personalized services for any project, big or small. Thank you Kit!!!!"
