If you are looking for a creative architect who is both easy to work with and fast, we strongly recommend Cody McLaughlin. Cody is very talented and resourceful and incredibly responsive – due to my work’s travel demands we were often corresponding about details late into the night – waking up to a new set of drawings in the morning. Cody made the process simple and handled everything with the City, beginning to end.

Dear Mr. McLaughlin:

It is with great pleasure that I am able to write this letter of reference and commendation regarding the professional work that you provided on a major remodeling project on our home this year.  Your professional expertise in designing the remodel, blending it in with the existing dwelling and maximizing the aesthetic and practical utility of the final project was outstanding an beyond my expectations.  Further, your assistance in getting the project through the review and approval process with the Architectural Review Board, the California Coastal Commission, City Planning Commission and the Building Department in a timely manner and without compromising the design was also greatly appreciated.

If i can be of any assistance to you, acting as a professional reference or otherwise, please do not hesitate to call on me at your convenience.  It was truly a pleasure working with you on this project.

Very best regards,

Owen S. Denman, PE
