After an initial interview and site inspection Stewart presented us with 2 very different options. Both included all of the options we had discussed plus some great ideas that Stewart had come up with.
Once the choice was made as to the option, Stewart fine-tuned it. He let us know why he had chosen the materials he had, and discussed why he had decided to do certain things a certain way. If we disagreed he would listen, give his input, but never pushed his view as the only right one. Some decisions went his way, some ours. We have never regretted any of those final decisions.
It was always our project and he was there to facilitate it for us.
