We hired David Small Designs (DSD) for a new custom home design. We were very pleased with the well-thought-out design process and, of course, the beautiful design. However, what really left a special impression was dealing with a unique Variance complication at the Municipality. The DSD planner, David Brown, who worked with us took a calm but methodical approach to first convince the town planner and eventually the Committee that the Variance was simply a Zoning interpretation issue and should be approved (despite local opposition and very unfavourable precedence). Alas, we won, when I was convinced we would not – and it was, in no small part due to the dedicated work of the DSD planner.
