What Others Are Saying

Jan Harrison, Christchurch, New Zealand:

What we appreciated most was your willingness to Skype for as long as we wanted to ask questions, and your ability to think through the cost-benefit of each ‘feature’. Your follow-up with extra info that we talked about too was most appreciated.

If we end up with a designer or architect with little background in sustainability-related features next time round, we’d definitely use you again as an ‘independent expert’, and we have the sense that you would be able to work well with them without treading on their toes.

Brett Mashado, Mount Gambier, Australia:

We used Matthew to look at our plans during the designing stage and his design review confirmed that we where on the right track.

I had been listening to Matthew’s podcast for some time leading up to designing and during the design of our house, his information and guests have been invaluable. 

Matthew was offering a service to overlook our plans and his service was very beneficial and reassuring that we had done our best with the design that we had chosen and help us communicate with our draftsman/architect.

We were able to then take Matthews suggestions to our draftsman to redo a few things and confirm our ideas, such as sizing the south windows.

He was friendly and very quick with his services and I would expect to pay much much more than we did for them. 

We would recommend using Matthews services to anyone building or renovating before finalising your plans . 

With his wealth of knowledge you would be doing yourself a favour for the future to run you plans past him before proceeding to approvals.
