Architectural Additions’ idea to build on our front was novel and came on their first visit to our home. Our trust in their ability was confirmed by a creative design which was built on time and budget. Throughout construction,  Architectural Additions was our advocate for our best interests and complete satisfaction.

Like L.L. Bean, their desire was to please us in every way.  We would not hesitate to call them again for any future remodeling projects.
