We recently used Schachne Architects and Builders as both Architect and General Contractor for renovations on our home. The project included the design and construction of a new entry way, replacement of the existing roof and skylights as well as all doors and windows. We were highly satisfied with the outcome and the process. Throughout the project, we felt that Stan was thorough, communicative and responsive and his follow through to completion of the project was excellent. I wouldn’t hesitate to use Schachne Architects and Builders again.
I hired Schachne Architects & Builders for an extensive condo remodel resulting in an excellent and beautiful final product. I was thoroughly impressed with their design, ongoing collaborative consultations, and execution. The subcontractors that were used for structural work, lighting, painting, tile work and woodwork were all quality craftsmen. Schachne Architects and Builders also provided creative design solutions for storage, display areas for art, and built-in cabinetry. I would highly recommend them.
Stan did a masterful job in constructing a 1,500 s/f two-story addition onto our home with minimal disruption of our living space. He worked with us from the design phase through completion and truly has stood behind his work. Most telling was how Stan handled his job during hurricane Wilma. The morning after at the break of dawn Stan was in touch with us making sure that the temporary wall that divided the addition work held through the night. He said , “I couldn’t sleep all night worrying about your family’s safety.” As it turned out his work with stood the storm . But it was refreshing to know that my contractor cared that much about his work and my family. That truly characterizes Stan . We would and have highly recommended him to all.
Stan and Donna did a wonderful job remodeling our house. The scope of the job included our kitchen, family room, 3 bedrooms, laundry room, formal living room and dining room, foyer and 2 1/2 bathrooms. They both listened to what we wanted and provided a computerized 3-D design for us to see. The design was exactly what we envisioned for the house, an updated modern look but still maintaining a family friendly atmosphere throughout. We were able to remain close to budget as well as the time frame. They did a professional job, kept us informed throughout the whole process and made the whole experience very painless with minimal stress. Our family is very happy with our new home and would highly recommend Schachne Architects.
Schachne Architects was the architect for our home renovation. The existing house was a 1950's era one story 1900 sq.ft. house and Stan designed the second floor, Key West inspired, renovation adding an additional 1500 sq.ft.
They provided great value and were easy to work with. Communication was responsive and provided clear answers to our questions. We are very happy with the way the house turned out and would highly recommend them to friends and family if they needed an architect.
We hired Stan and Donna to design and renovate our master bathroom knowing that they could translate our vision into a reality. Their design took advantage of the existing footprint of our master bath and suggested unique elements that we hadn't thought of. Their team of excellent craftsmen did a great job and the project came in on budget and on time. We highly recommend Schachne Architects and Builders. If you want to work with a design build team in the Southeast US, we recommend you call Stan & Donna. They will earn your trust and you will be as thrilled as we are with your results.
Schachne Architects & Builders has done several projects in my home - kitchen, 3 bathrooms, plus a front porch addition. All of my experiences with Stan Schachne have been positive. He was always available to answer questions and solve any problems. He was especially helpful giving me a "vision" of what I wanted.
We went from an old 600 sq ft house to a 3000 sq ft beautiful key west style home. Schachne architects worked with us to fit our needs and their expertise in design made our ideas a reality. We loved working with them and highly recommend them.
This was our second project with Schachne Architects & Builders. We were very happy with our first project so when we needed a major remodel for our new condominium we never considered using a different firm. Schachne Architects and Builders handled our complete project from design to completion. They provided us with a project schedule at the outset and weekly updates with photos of the status of the project. Their communications with us was wonderful. The project was completed on time and on budget. Our project was very complex and very design intensive; Schachne Architects and Builders design services and skills were outstanding and our home is the showplace of our entire building! We would highly recommend them for your next project.
Jim and I love our new bathrooms. It is amazing to us that you completed 2 bathrooms, from demolition to brand new, in only 6 weeks. Your professionalism and the manner in which you work and the team you work with are outstanding, Aside from having the most beautiful bathrooms in town the one thing that mattered the most to us was your constant communication. We also appreciated the fact that you listened to us. You let us know every morning and every evening what was happening, who would be working, and when we were away you even sent us pictures. That made us feel so comfortable. We had complete confidence in you because of your honesty and communication.
From the start with the drawings, changes, permits, schedule and especially working in a condo, you listened to our needs and fit them into the total plan. It is tough working in a condo with all of our rules and regulations but you and your team did exactly what was expected which many contractors do not do. I didn't have to worry about that aspect which was great. The quality of the work was excellent. All of your teams were polite and knew each other which really made the entire process much easier. They were also on time and if they were going to be late you called me. We can't "thank you" enough for making this experience as flawless as you did. Please feel free to give our name and number to people who seek a reference and I would be happy to "show off" my bathrooms to anyone who wanted to see the excellent quality.
All the best!
