March 2003

Ron Pederson prepared the design drawings for our retirement home in Blake Point Estates in the North Shuswap. Construction commenced in July 2002. During the house design phase, Ron spent considerable time with me and my wife to be sure everything we wanted would be incorporated in the desing.

We have been very satisfied with Ron's design work and the drawings and specifications. Ron is a very experienced building design technologist. He has the structural engineering knowledge necessary for the proper selection of joists, beams, and columns. Ron has a good understanding of the Provincial and Regional District building codes and regulations, and designed our house to a standard that met or exceeded these requirements. We had no problems with the periodic building inspections that took place as construction proceeded.

Ron Pederson has a good eye for aesthetics and at the same time understands that in the end the house must be functional as well as attractive and comfortable. Ron's advice on window size, location, and aspect have proved to be an asset with respect to natural light, pleasant appearance, and capitalizing on the view.

I was general contractor for our new house construction. Ron saved me time by providing information on sub-trades and building material suppliers in our area.

I would recommend Pederson Drafting and Design to anyone who wants high quality house design drawings and specifications which result in the minimum of hassle and delays during the approval process of the construction phase.
