client testimonials

N.Y. – Maple Lake

“I would like to thank Ben DeCarlo at Highland Design for drawing up our plans for our new cottage. After dealing with someone who disappointed us we went to Ben DeCarlo for them. He was very knowledgeable and listened to what we wanted and came up with a main floor plan that we immediately loved. He was great at amending the things we wanted (3-4) times as the project grew and was easy to talk to. He was able to draw up the plans for which we had no problem obtaining a permit. I would highly recommend him for any of your design ideas.”

M.O. – Carnarvon

“We retained Highland Design for an addition that we had been struggling with. Ben was remarkable to work with and came up with suggestions and ideas to increase functionality and reduce cost that we had never thought of. His ability to listen to our needs and provide us with sound ideas led to the perfect space for our family. Thank you!”
