We began with definite ideas about improvements we wished to make in our living space. As we were basically ignorant about what would be feasible in structural terms and, more importantly, what overall design would meet our needs in an aesthetically pleasing, financially reasonable, and structurally practical way, we consulted with Mr. Joseph Campanella (Design Alliance, LLC). He has worked with us on all these aspects of our design and construction project. He
listened patiently to our concerns, answered a multitude of informed and uninformed questions, and suggested sources of materials such as wood and granite.
Once these preliminaries were out of the way, he drew up plans translating our somewhat inchoate desires into a practical and appealing design. It was important to us that while Joe presented, explained, and sometimes argued for his ideas, he also listened carefully to our desires and concerns, and in the end he adjusted the design to suit our particular needs and wishes. As the project continues [to the construction phase], Joe will continue to help us and shepherd this project to completion. He has been – and will continue to be – a valuable advisor and facilitator. We are pleased with his work and gladly recommend him to others.”
