TESTIMONIALS:

Client – Interior Renovation and Addition

“Steve Besch helped us with the design of our completely renovated kitchen and addition of a mudroom. Our intention was just to renovate our kitchen. However, Steve had great ideas of how to completely redesign the space and include a much needed mudroom. His attention to detail and ability to clearly communicate his ideas sets him apart from his peers. He listened to what we wanted however made creative suggestions without being too pushy. His experience and knowledge is evident. I would highly recommend him.”

“When it came time for us to renovate our outdated dysfunctional kitchen we didn’t know where to begin. Besch Design was recommended to us by a friend so we gave Steve a call. He came over and after the initial meeting with him and his wife Susan we knew we wanted to work with them. He took our vision and turned our kitchen into a space we love to cook, entertain, and be together as a family.”

 

Client – Interior Renovation and Addition

“Steve Besch of Besch Designs made himself available for consultation prior to the purchase of my home which was constructed in 1929. The home had had several renovations over the years that were disconnected and poorly thought out. He opened up the dark home and filled it with light. The gut rehab of the home revealed structural issues caused by the poor past renovation. Steve was able to identify and solve these issues in rather unique and effective ways. He provided multiple options for each room and found the perfect fit for our lifestyle and design tastes. Though it required many changes throughout the process because of issues discovered during renovations and our evolving change in thought he never hesitated to provide new options. Steve worked closely with the General Contractor and was always available. He was very involved until the project was completed. His professionalism, attention to detail, quick response and pleasant disposition made the process of home renovation go smoothly that created our dream home. I highly recommend Besch Design.”

“We are pleased to give Besch Design, Ltd. our highest recommendation. We underwent an extensive seven month interior renovation project of our home. This included a new kitchen/butler pantry, addition to the family room, new master bath and powder rooms, new exterior entry, replacement of all windows, addition of a mud room, third garage bay, and any number of other changes which virtually transformed our home. Steve Besch was our Architect for the project. His creativity, ability to problem solve, and ultimately, his skill in helping us achieve our vision was outstanding. He committed to the project from start to finish and was our trusted advisor and advocate throughout all facets of the project. There is no question we would engage with Besch Design, Ltd. again, and recommend his professional architectural services to any and all friends and family.”

 

Client – Interior Renovation

“What I appreciated the most of Steve was his ability to listen to what I was trying to achieve in my projects and taking that information and producing a couple of scenarios for me to consider. It helped a lot since it brought up things that I had not thought of. I also felt that he brought great value for what was being done and actually helped me save money in areas that I didn’t need to spend. A very nice gentleman and had the resources to help me a great deal. I will definitely hire him again.”

 

Client – Interior Renovation

“Steve Besch of Besch Design worked as our architect on our historic home rehab project in Chicago, IL. As the home was built in the 1920’s and had multiple additions over the years, it proved a challenge to modernize. Steve’s thoughtful, innovative and comprehensive design and engineering work laid the foundation for a beautiful outcome. He redesigned a house full of small, dark rooms to achieve a spacious, livable floorplan that maintained its original architectural integrity. Steve partnered with us throughout the project — from idea conception, plans and permits, contracting and construction, to finish work. He interacted effectively with our contractors and made himself available for all our questions. When needed onsite, he was timely and efficient, keeping us on schedule. His experienced, hands-on approach was invaluable during our project. To achieve success in a home build or design project, it is critical to have vested partners — without hesitation, Steve Besch and Besch Design was that partner. We will not hesitate to bring him in on our next project or recommend him to others.”

 

Contractor

“Steve Besch was a tremendous asset in getting our project conceived, planned, executed, and wrapped. He was always prompt with his deliverables, helped us breeze past the permitting process, and provided valuable information for us as we tackled our first major renovation. I would recommend him highly to anyone who has a medium to large project. Ours was a 3400 sf loft renovation that has since been featured in magazines. Job well done.”
