Our kitchen has been functional for more than a week. I am just really slow in resupplying it. I still have some shelves to put liner down on, and the cabinetmaker is going to make some more shelves–when it fits in his schedule. I am also taking my time so items for various tasks are located together for efficient usage. The contractor and his workers came over today and did some final work and even nailed up some of the old cupboards in the garage. They have gone the extra mile for us again and again. I can’t tell you how pleased we are with them. Besides that, we agree on political matters–very cordial. I gave him a check for final payment, and they were extremely reasonable. I kept asking, “Did you include the extra painting and putting up the cupboards?” and he replied that it was all included.

You were great to work with; I think we were on the same page from the start. We had some rough ideas about the house but you really helped us visualize them better. You then integrated these smoothly with your own original ideas to produce the house drawings. Overall, the process was very orderly and timely and of course we are psyched about our house; it is everything we could’ve asked for. We still have all the original drawings from the initial sketches through the final plan. I think they make a nice souvenir and are fun to go through to relive the process occasionally.

Will Dixon worked with us to build out our office space upstairs in the Balzhiser Hubbard Building, formerly the Eugene Public Library. Will took the basics of what we wanted for our office, worked with us through several versions, expanded and challenged our thinking, helping us to see the potential in a space that was literally an empty shell when we first saw it. The result is we get to come to work in an environment that is one of the best designed and beautifully finished offices in the Eugene area. Our experience in working with Will was very positive. He listened to our needs and wants, kept us well informed, and was a great liaison with the contractors involved. Will also recommended an interior designer to collaborate with, whose work perfectly complimented the initial vision and final design of our project. Will gets our highest recommendation for professionalism, thoughtfulness, vision and talent.

Will has been an invaluable resource for us. We communicate frequently on projects at all phases of construction; I find him very easy to work with, quite knowledgeable, and he understands how the entire design\build process works. What makes Will a pleasure to work with is his ability to take others’ expertise and know-how and apply it into his design. The give and take between designer and builder is necessary for a project to be successful, and Will excels at this.

The first word that comes to mind when I think of working with Will is ease. This was my first building project and Will made me feel comfortable in this new realm; he always took the time to explain my options and the language of building to me. Will was very receptive to exploring ideas of aesthetic and functional design with me and drew out many variations of the plans before coming to a final decision. I now have a beautiful light-filled studio to work in where there was once an empty lot, and I am very happy!

I have worked with Will on a number of challenging and unique projects over the past few years. I can say that his level of professionalism along with his ability to create exceptional designs makes him a pleasure to work with. If you are looking for an architect that is great to work with and excels at turning your dreams into reality call on Will.

Working with Will to design the 500sf addition to our home was a very positive experience. We presented Will with a very long and diverse list of functions the new space “must” perform, and he intently listened and considered all of our needs while observing our lifestyle and deftly creating the space we needed. We believe Will has designed a space that will serve our family for years to come.

My name is Jamie and I’ve been using your resources page. My husband and I actually just moved into a new home. It’s a bit of a fixer-upper to say the least, and first off we’re looking into fixing some of the electrical and getting new appliances. I’ve been looking into “green” home ideas and have been researching about energy efficiency. Your page has been really helpful and I just wanted to write and say thank you. It’s a stressful time and I really appreciate it.

Thank you for the plans and for being so wonderful to work with. You were just what you said you would be and more. You, Travis and the rest were just great! We will be inviting you all out to see it when done. We will also be sure to send anyone we have opportunity to talk with your way.
