"From our first meeting, Jay sat down with us and got to know us."
We worked with Jay on a major renovation and addition and we are very, very happy with the results. From our first meeting, Jay sat down with us and got to know us. The design started with how the house would work as a home for our family, how it would flow, how daily life would happen, including things we never thought about. He came up with great ideas like extending the porch to a huge wrap around porch that now adds so much character to the house. He somehow made an attic office, bright, airy and roomy. He was professional and clear from the start on process, time frame and cost. He knows the local area and helped guide us in finding contractors to choose from. More than anything, he's a genuinely good guy that you know you can trust and he's a pleasure to work with. Couldn't recommend him more.

“We very much want to retain the original character & charm...”
We retained Jay to assist us with a part of our 1st Floor renovation to our 1890's Victorian Twin. As our project progressed we had an opportunity to remove an award vertical column that restricted access from the entry way and disrupted the overall flow of the space. Not only will it open the first flow it will give unobstructed views to a classic transom over the entryway. Jay (and his colleague) were professional, knowledgeable, & courteous during their site inspection and measurements. We very much want to retain the original character & charm of our house and Jay has a VERY unique knowledge of local historical homes, yet understands the modern lifestyle and desire to marry the two in a beautiful way. We HIGHLY recommend Jay for all your historical, or modern, architectural needs. You will NOT be disappointed.

“... involved in the entire process from plans to moving in!”
Jay Reinert is not only an amazing architect, he is an amazing person. We hired Jay to restore and renovate our 1890 victorian. He was/is completely enthusiastic and understanding of our goals to renovate our home to suit our needs but also respect and honor the history of the home. He asked us what we wanted, what we needed and then offered suggestions on what he felt we deserved - an amazing master suite we would NEVER have come up with on our own! He is extremely easy to work with, welcomes input from the home owner and is involved in the entire process from plans to moving in! We can't say enough good things about Jay, he really is one of a kind. We have enjoyed every aspect of our renovation and actually look forward to the next phase. We HIGHLY recommend Jay for any project!
