Customer Testimonials

The design team was wonderful and willing to be as creative as we wanted but listened to our concerns about the budget.

The workers were efficient, and even though there were setbacks because of unforeseen weather issues, they worked diligently. If things needed changing or repairing, they were very easy to work with and made changes quickly and well.

Our project took about 5 months with every aspect, but the final project is beautiful and a great space to make music.

Everyone who sees it and hears the acoustics is in awe.

I would highly recommend this company again for many reasons, from design and creative talent to workmanship.

Susan M., Musician & Teacher

Eli and his SQFT studios crew delivered a beautiful, high-quality guest suite. They transformed our rarely used small backyard into a comfortable and useful space for guests, family, and our own enjoyment. Eli was a great partner throughout the entire journey. He provided his expertise and also listened to and incorporated our vision. We LOVE the final product!

Abby F., Airbnb Host

Eli was the best to work with while we were drawing up plans for a beach cottage in Oregon. He listened to all our needs with passionate detail, and really created something that we will love forever! The work that SQFT Studios does is unparalleled and I would recommend them to anyone!

Mike S., CEO

SQFT designed our ADU and a brand new house, both of which turned out to be everything we could dream of. Eli was excellent: professional, insightful, and thoughtful in his design with respect to our wants/needs. I have already recommended him to several of my friends!

SQFT Studios built our detached bedroom/AirBnB short-term rental space in early 2017. Initial concerns about how it would impact our backyard were replaced with delight with the completion of the project as it has enhanced the aesthetic of our property! The studio is gorgeous and highly reviewed by all guests! The value and quality of their work is tremendous and worth the investment.

If you’re wanting a small house, studio, office, ADU, these are the folks for you. They built us a 384 sq ft studio office with a waiting room, bathroom, and office that is stunning. All in the price we could manage. Because they specialize in small buildings, they really have the process down right. Everything in our building was done to perfection. And, disclaimer, I am a perfectionist.

I was impressed from beginning to end with their professionalism and willingness to work with me on so many small details. The entire staff was so competent and friendly. Everything was always kept clean and neat. They kept to their very strict timeline and worked through rain, snow, cold, mud, and produced a really terrific structure I feel very proud to have on my property.

This is a great company and you won’t be sorry to choose them for your special project.

Patrick H., Airbnb Host

SQFT Studios became the answer to our problems – I needed a bigger, more private space to run my photography business and and meet with clients, and our small house was not going to cut it anymore. A casual conversation with Schuyler turned into creative, yet functional building plans, and these hard-working gentlemen hit the ground running. They had the structure built in less than a month, and my wife and I are so happy with the result. SQFT Studios is professional, determined, and personable, and we feel lucky to have found them.
