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

Above & Beyond Building Design, LLC was highly recommend to us, and as a result of our experience with them, the name Above & Beyond Building Design, LLC certainly fits them perfectly. Above and Beyond experience, insightful questions, active listening and thoughtful leadership all added to our great experience with them. In addition to their attention to details, they are efficient, innovative and they design with the budget in mind. So professional, yet so easy to work with. They are really nice people and we thoroughly enjoyed working with them.. We couldn’t recommend them highly enough.

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).

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!!!
