John DM, Brisbane

James was very thorough with his work. He delivered our renovation as explained and I was very happy with the outcome. thanks

Praveen, Chapel Hill

James was a dream to work with - courteous, professional, timely and talented. He was able to help us design, sketch and build our tiny home completely from scratch, even connecting us to others in the industry who could help us navigate approvals required for a tiny home. I found James extremely knowledgeable and am very happy with the home he has designed for us. Real value for money. I would highly recommend James be included in designing your dream home.

Mikhara, Anstead

I had a broad picture of what I wanted my Granny Flat to look like through TV programs like Grand Designs and other media sources. James was able to take these ideas and create a version that was budget friendly but still a very pleasing and functional design. He is totally across council requirements and incorporates eco-friendly options into his design. Post build he has also been available for any questions. I highly recommend James Stephenson for your architectural needs.
