Annex Victorian Reno and Addition

Complete Gut Renovation Project of a Heritage-Designated House

We hired Lindy Consulting in August 2016 for a complete gut renovation project of a heritage-designated house in downtown Toronto.

Steven has proven to be a capable, professional and friendly ally, helping us choose a great contractor, navigate the City's red tape and generally provide sound and sensible advice.

We enjoy working with him very much and look forward to the successful completion of our dream home.

We would highly recommend Lindy Consulting Ltd. for any residential project.

Moore Park Reno

Complete Renovation in Moore Park

I hired Steven at Lindy Architect to design a renovation of our house in Moore Park in toronto.

Needless to say we obtained our approvals, and Steven stayed involved every step of the way. The design consisted of open concept living room dining room and kitchen space with no beams or walls on the ground floor, underpinning the basement and a complete reno on the second floor. The house was stripped down to the studs. Steven helped us navigate the approvals with the city and was very helpful and knowledgeable during the construction process as well. I do not hesitate to recommend Lindy Architect.about? What makes it interesting? Write a catchy description to grab your audience's attention...

Fantastic Architectural Advice

We hired Lindy Architect through a recommendation and we found him to be the right fit for our project.

We highly recommend Lindy Consulting Limited for your Architectural design needs. Steven Lindy was friendly and very helpful in explaining the complicated system of designs for our big renovation.

We hired Lindy Architect through a recommendation and we found him to be the right fit for our project.

The scope of our work was quite extensive and included an open-concept main level and kitchen with an exterior deck and walkout, re-planning of the basement, and renovations on the second floor.

He has provided us with fantastic architectural advice, and has worked well with the rest of the team.

He is very knowledgeable in structural issues and energy efficiency as well as how to obtain city permits quickly and efficiently. We had absolutely no issues with the city permits which I was expecting after everything else I have heard.

Steven helped us greatly starting with 3D renderings providing several options for the design of the space.

He then quickly translated those into detailed permit drawings for Toronto building permit approvals.

If you are starting the daunting task of getting into home renovations, you should definitely consider Steven for the job.

We would definitely recommend Lindy Architect. Renovation

Thank you Lindy Architect for the designs and for the fantastic results! 

Our contractor recommended Lindy Architect for two projects that required architectural design and permit from the city. Some technical issues related to structure and waterproofing were very important for us. The plans made by Steve were clear, detailed and directly addressed the issues. 

Steve's patience, attention to details and flexibility have been greatly appreciated. He made numerous site visits and showed interest and dedication to our project. 

He communicated well and answered all of our calls and emails professionally and promptly, and his professional input was always a benefit to the outcome of the project. We would definitely recommend Lindy Architect.

We engaged Lindy Consulting to provide some plans to renovate the 3rd floor of our house which was an unused portion of our house which contained two bedrooms and which we were using as additional storage space. Our plan was to move our master bedroom to this space and add a full washroom. We met with Steven to discuss our ideas and how we envisaged the space and our estimated budget. They came back to us the following week with some preliminary sketches that impressed us. We then gave them the mandate to prepare full drawings and once approved by us, they managed the project from completing the drawings, getting them approved, and seeing the project through to completion. We were quite hands-on in the decision making but they truly took ownership of the project and had our best interests in mind throughout. Although we ended up spending more than we budgeted (which was as a result of our decision to upgrade windows and bathroom appliances), we are really pleased with the final result.

I planned to do 4 renovation projects at my house, each more demanding than the first. Steve at Lindy Consulting was able to develop the architectural drawings necessary for the city of Toronto. He was very collaborative with my wife and me, working for the best solution not dictating. Once the plans were complete, he came with me to get the plans approved. Our plans were held up (1 of the 4 projects required more details and a trip to committee of adjustment). Steve smartly, broke the plans into 2 – (1) the first three easy projects (2) leaving the more complex one in the system with the original plans. Steve made the trip to City Hall and resubmitted the plans. Within 4 days I had approval. Steve is courteous, conscientious and thoughtful. He is well recommended.

This partnership is the perfect dream team that one can have when trying to coordinate, design and put forward a headache situation like an interior/exterior upgrade to your 80 year old home. We are a family of 4 and expecting a 5th member in June,this meant we needed an extra bedroom, and it is not easy renovating or building anything, however easy it is, with kids around. This is where the Lindy´s have shown their expertise, as they have a family of their own and understand families. What we found efficient about working with the Lindy´s, apart from the personal touch they showed while designing and planning out our 2nd floor addition; taking time to get to know our likes and dislikes, why the addition was being built, etc., was the fact that their plans were extremely detailed and at a great price, not only for us, but more importantly, for the contractor that has to budget and work with the plans. Not only is their work helpful, efficient, detailed, precise and at an affordable price, but also it has that touch of European design, elegance and unique style for the ideas of finishings, over all design and functionality that is difficult to find at an affordable price in our country. Thanks Lindy team for a job well done !

We hired Lindy Consulting Architects –to design a rear addition to our home in North York which included 2 extra bedrooms on the second floor and an enlarged kitchen, washroom, mudroom and deck on the main floor. They addressed all of our issues and concerns. The house addition is in keeping with the existing house. We are extremely happy with the outcome. The design and permit drawings progressed smoothly, and the drawings were extremely well detailed and thought out to the “n-th” degree. We would recommend them wholeheartedly for anyone considering a renovation or addition project.

Adding to an older house in an established neighbourhood can feel daunting.You want to preserve the character of the house while making sure that the addition will feel fresh and modern. Steve and Annette understood very well the “vibe” we were looking for and helped us articulate our own ideas as well as steering us in the right direction. It turned out just as we wanted.

Renovating an existing home is a major and complicated process. Our project was a kitchen renovation which included removal of structural walls, in order to nearly double the size of our kitchen. We were very impressed with Steven and Annette who proved to be very practical and effective in dealing with all project issues. Needless to say, I do not hesitate to recommend Lindy Architects, we are extremely pleased with the final results, and we would certainly use them again without hesitation.

We reached out to Lindy Consulting after reading great reviews on HomeStars. We were immediately impressed by how quickly Steven was able to attend our initial consultation. Steven and Annette are professional and have great ideas. They were able to accommodate our budget and Steven assisted us with the entire application process which included accompanying us to the permit office. The permit office had numerous questions and having Steven there to answer them was a tremendous help. We will definitely be reaching out to them for the next phase of our project. We highly recommend that you reach out to Lindy Consulting, you will not be disappointed!
