“During 2017, I had on occasion, twice to use the design services of Michele Kennedy of Kenwood Drafting & Design. For both projects her plans were so well detailed and thorough, it made the building end easy. When I did need some input from Michele, she was quick to reply and comprehensive in her detail. I would certainly recommend Michele, for drafting and design ideas.”
“…had the final inspection on the new porch. His report reads: “Construction complete, no concerns, permit file closed.” He was here about 5 minutes and… was VERY impressed!”
“Michele, you’ve got a wonderful beginning for us! We like your solution for the roof pitch, and how it works for both the front and side porch areas.”
“Great work Michelle … Going to be a great addition”
Michele Kennedy worked with us to design our dream beach house on Balsam lake. Michele brought experience and innovative ideas to the drawing table, helping us with our first ever build. She listened, made recommendations based on her past experience that were extremely helpful and was truly dedicated to the project. Michele always made us feel as though she wanted this to be the best beach house ever and went back to the drawings each time we had a new idea or change. We felt very comfortable and confident working through the design process with Michele. We would recommend her to anyone with ideas, as she brought our ideas to reality!
“We recently needed to put an addition on our dental clinic for our son who was joining our practice and required building plans to be drafted by a designer licensed and experienced in commercial buildings. Michele was able to meet with us and our builder on numerous occasions throughout the process. Michele’s knowledge of the commercial building code and design helped us make the best use of the space and achieve all our desired outcomes in the renovation. Michele’s drawings were prepared and sent for engineering approval promptly which meant our project timing synced up perfectly with our builder’s schedule and the project was completed on time for our son’s graduation. We highly recommend Kenwood Drafting & Design and will definitely use Michele again for any future projects.”
“Michele Kennedy of Kenwood Drafting & Design, very generously donated her drafting skills to design an accessibility ramp for the Volunteer Dental Outreach for Haliburton County free dental clinic. Our charity was concerned for the safety of patients and volunteers entering the building as the existing entrance was a steep, concrete ramp which was very slippery in the winter. Due to the height of the doorway, the ramp needed to be quite long without taking up any of the existing parking area. Michele ingeniously designed a ramp that started at the door, went behind the building and turned back supported on piers. Thanks to Kenwood Drafting & Design and our builder, Alex Roome, an attractive, new ramp is now in place which meets all the extensive building code requirements for wheel chair accessibility and a staircase for able bodied people and did not eliminate any parking spots.”
“We really enjoyed working with Michele on the design for the addition at our cottage. We provided her with our wish list and she very quickly came back to us with a beautiful design for an addition that complimented our existing cottage. In addition, Michele was always available for the builder whenever technical issues arose relating to either the building process or building codes.”
