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 design.

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 the general contractor for our new house.  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.

As a private ASTTBC certified building technician/consultant that has undertaken thousands of residential and commercial building inspections since the early 1990’s within the Shuswap and across British Columbia, the one professional Architectural Designer, when inspecting his designed residential home, Ron Pederson impresses me with his experience as an ASTTBC certified building design technologist due to the great length of detailed accuracy of the structural planning of engineering knowledge he has. In the past when inspected my clients’ residential construction that have engaged Ron as their personal Architectural Designer, I find everything according to the plans 100% accurate with no short cuts to the construction design and required standards meeting Provincial and Regional District building codes and regulations which he typically exceeds.

In 1999, we worked with Ron Pederson to design our new home at Blind Bay BC. We had been unable to find a house plan that was suitable for our unique and difficult view lot. When Ron was recommended as a designer, we went to see him and found that he was interested in our project. To familiarize us with his work, he took us to see a house that he had designed. He visited our lot, asked us for our “wish list” and came up with two possible plans. When we changed our mind about some elements, he was able to incorporate the changes and worked patiently until we were satisfied. Ron had many good ideas, was always available when we had questions or concerns, and was easy to work with. We are delighted with our new home. When visitors ask us where we found the plan, we are happy to tell them Ron Pederson designed it specially for us.
