The following "Testimonial's" are from our existing customers talking about their experience working with us.
The design phase of our major home remodel was very daunting, for months we tried to manage the design on our own, only to find ourselves hopelessly farther away from our goal at every turn. We finally decided that we needed help; we needed to hire a firm that could walk us through the process using a systematic/proven approach. For us, the most important attributes of a design firm include experience, leadership, slant towards 'green' design, openness to ideas, and 'fun'.
Jamie brought all of these attributes and more to the table; we quickly became partners working closely together towards the same goal. Jamie was great about listening to our ideas and coming back to the table with multiple layout options with our ideas in mind. He drove us when we needed direction without being overbearing; in fact, Jamie really became the friend who simply knew everything there was to know about remodeling. The end result of our design phase was a fully permitted set of plans. The permit process was extremely smooth due to Jamie's professional/detailed full set of construction documents. When I picked up the permitted plans the city planner who approved the documents told me they were the best plans he'd reviewed this year.
Do yourself a favor and partner with Above & Beyond Building Design for your project.
We sincerely enjoyed the process .. and hope our next home is close enough to redesign it together!
All the best, Brian & Shannon

Jamie Young with Above and Beyond Building Design, designed our
Casita. His expertise in multiple fields, including contracting,
permitting, and, of course, architecture, all proved invaluable. With
superb back office support from wife Misty, not only did he create
and help bring to life the structure, but along the way they helped
in a variety of ways, including reviewing and getting quit claims on
old easements that enabled us to expand our rear lot line by nearly
ten feet! We are delighted with the result, and highly recommend
Jamie and Above & Beyond Building Design.

As a young, novice, first time home designer and builder- Jamie at
Above and Beyond Building Design was the answer to our concerns.
Jamie worked with our schedule and made us a priority. Some designers
were hesitant to take on our unique situation, but Jamie jumped right
in and was way more than we could ever ask for. We got to know him
personally, as well as his wonderful family. He would offer
suggestions, present options in multiple ways, even if it took way
more time on his part. Simply put- Jamie was literally our favorite
sub to work with in our entire home building project. We are so
grateful for his patience and attention to detail during all our
disagreements and many, many changes. His wife Misty was his
background Ace. She was so good at her lighting and draw ups. Thank
you Jamie, for all that you did, even after the drawings were
complete. We so appreciated you coming to check on the build and
helping us when things got hairy. I will and already have referred
multiple patients and friends to Above & Beyond Building Design!
My husband and I worked with Jamie on the planning of a large
porch that extends the full length of the rear of our house. The
porch includes many facets including a full outdoor kitchen. Jamie
was great to work with and had so many great ideas that really
improved our original idea. We would get together and have some
brainstorming. He encouraged us to take our time in the planning and
it sure paid off as small details came up that really improved the
project. Jamie is always professional and delivers what he promises
but he is also really fun to work with. Although our home being in a
flood plain has somewhat delayed some aspects of our project, we are
really enjoying where we are currently in the project and look
forward to fully completing the project as our parcel gets removed
from the flood plain (due to local development mitigation).
Above and beyond building design was amazing! Jamie Young made the
process so easy, give me everything I needed to get it done the right
the first time.I would definitely use them again they were
professional, And even though I was in a rush he
took the time to ask all the right questions to make it perfect.
I found Above & Beyond at a Home show and the name says
it all. Jamie and his wife are an AMAZING team!! My mothers house
burned down December 2011 and we needed to rebuild which you would
think is no problem....well my father build the house in the late
60's and I wanted to keep the existing foundation as it was not
harmed because I wanted to use the same footprint and Jamie said no
problem. It took A LOT of work on Jamie's side but he kept his word
and it turned out better than I had even hoped for. Jamie's
communication is top notch! He does not try and push his thoughts
into your plans but will take your idea and bring them to life and
offers some ideas that are Fabulous!! Above & Beyond was so
efficient that my plans were ready in 3 DAYS!!!! Yes we got to move
to the front of the pile because of it being fire related but Placer
County didn't have a single mark on my plans to change!!! As you can
see I highly recommend using Jamie, no job is too big or too small.
Above & Beyond is amazing!!!
