We have worked with Martin for over three years. Our collaboration began in 2008 when we asked him to design an extension to our kitchen. The final plans involved extending the kitchen as well as moving the existing garage and utility room. Martin assisted us in choosing a builder and at every turn we found his help invaluable. The work has received plaudits from friends and professionals alike. He has always been most generous with his advice and the persons he recommended have all been excellent
