Testimonials from Home Builders and Buyers

I worked with Tricia on revising this plan. It is actually a combination of two plans. She was very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. We did make a few very slight adjustments along the way but we mostly followed the plan and recommendations. I would definitely use Donald Gardner Architects in the future and would recommend them to anyone who wants a home tailored to them. Extremely Satisfied

8.2.19 - Jodi G. - Clarksville, TN
I customized this floor plan to review the elevation with a front porch. I co-developed a neighborhood and kept telling my buyers we could do that, but they didn't have the vision, so I never got the chance to do it until I built my own Adcox floor plan, Extremely Satisfied.

7.16.19 - David B. - Lancaster, SC
Very helpful and easy to work with. Super fast shipping. We are externally satisfied.

6.27.19 - David R. - Duncan, SC
We knew that once we started the process of selecting a house plan that Don Gardner was the only website that we would use. Much of that decision was based on feedback from builders over the years telling us that you can't beat a Don Gardner plan. We selected the Lucy that not only gives us the open floor plan that is so popular today, but also integrated that open plan to the outside of porches and patios to maintain that flow of an open feel.

6.25.19 - Sandra and Matthew D. - Gastonia, NC
After researching dozens of plans, the Austin was the perfect choice for our retired, golf course lifestyle...perfect for entertaining and hosting guests. The architectural details receives accolades from all that have seen it. We love our home!

6.20.19 - Michael W. - TJR Enterprises - Knoxville, TN
I went through more than 1,000 floor plans before we chose this one, the Sarafine - plan 1403. ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! It has so many little thoughtful touches!

6.18.19 - Kevin G. - Warner Robbins, GA

6.15.19 - Janet R. - Mike Maher Construction - New Bern, NC
Donald Gardner has designed the perfect home for one floor living, the Gentry. He has thought of every detail to make our home full of natural light. The front entryway is very welcoming. We have many outdoor porches to sit and watch the birds. We are so happy we found these plans Donald Gardner to build our dream house.

6.10.19 - Brooks A. - Addis Home Builders - Wilmington, NC
Great floorplans with cost and quality in mind. Perfect touches with beams, stone and accents to make interiors and exteriors stand apart from other homes. All of the plans that I have built are open floor plans but also make people feel at home which is hard to do. Nice!

6.3.19 - David R. - Radlund Construction, LLC - Henryetta, OK
The Flagler plan like other DAG plans are very easy to navigate and I really enjoy building these houses. The Flagler is my personal home that we made some slight modifications to do it would better fit our needs but the modifications only added to the neat lines of the home.

5.10.19 - Barbara M. - Northcutt Custom Homes - Burns, TN
Aside from the fact that WE love our house and our neighbors and subcontractors have called it the prettiest house on the street, during the building process we heard many accolades about the lay-out and style of the home from the electricians, framers, and cabinet makers. This plan, the Satchwell, was perfect for our lifestyle!

4.18.19 - Nigel G. - Phoenix, AZ
Our Vandemere house turned out beautifully. All brick with stone front protrusions and siding above the brick. Wooden floors throughout. Enclosed the screened in porch as part of the living area to put the main floor above 2,000 sq. ft. Wish I could attach some pictures of the finished product.

The Butler Ridge is a great plan that worked perfectly on our Lake Lanier lot. We love the open plan. Our finished house had a walk out main level.

12.13.18 - Tingen Construction Co. - Raleigh, NC

I've been working with Donald Gardner for many years and have found their plans are market ready and are exactly what today's buyers are looking for in a new home. I have found Donald Gardner's plans to be profitable to build because they are the spot-on for today's buyers and are therefore on the market fewer days before being SOLD.

Donald Gardner has become a very strong trade partner for my company. His Rendering to Reality program has allowed my company to become affiliated with his national brand through social media. I love the national exposure and this has proven very helpful to my company.

6.11.2018 - Bobby Cannon Homes - Dadeville, AL

I would highly recommend Donald Gardner house plans. I've built just about every price house over the years and Donald Gardner has been a consistent part for my business. I'm now building high end houses on Beautiful Lake Martin and a large number of my clients choose plans from Donald Gardner. They have the look and appeal that people are looking for. And they have just about any style house you would want, plus the staff at Donald Gardner has always been very professional and willing to help in any way they can.

6.4.2018 - Tim Snow - Avery Construction, LLC - Greenville/Spartanburg, SC
I have built numerous Don Gardner homes and lived in a couple myself. Don Gardner plans are an exceptional quality and provide the perfect starting point for me to customize with the signature details that my clients expect. For the last three years in a row, I have been awarded a South Carolina Home Builders Association Pinnacle Award for new construction and every winner was a Don Gardner design. Don Gardner Architects consistently provides home plans that are neighborhood friendly and they keep up to date with the modern features that homeowners desire. I look forward to building many more Don Gardner designs in the future.

3.3.2017 - Mike H.
Just wanted to report that all the builders I selected for building this home said Don Gardner designs were very meticulous. Thank you for a great and thorough design!

8.31.2016 - Nick H.
You guys are awesome! I can't tell you how much I appreciate all of your help and how happy I am with your service.

3.1.2016 - John T.
I'd like to thank the Donald Gardner Designers for keeping me in the loop during the modification process, and the schedule process of the plans. Jose R. was very patient with my wife and I throughout the process, and with all our questions. It has been a pleasure working with him. I will definitely communicate and recommend to all my future customers, family and friends, about your firm and designs! Thanks again.

To The Entire Team @ The Office of Donald A. Gardner Architects,Inc.
With a special Thank You to Kristie & Wendy!
Too often I think that great service goes unnoticed or unappreciated these days.
That being said I most certainly do not want to be one who hasn't noticed or who has not shown in some way how appreciative I am of the great service and attention I have received from your office.
I was hesitant in shopping floorplans online. I had actually paid a local architect to draw my dream home. Turns out it was not at all what I expected. Soooooo, once again I went in search of the PERFECT home plan, and I can honestly say I believe I have looked at EVERY plan out there. I knew immediately that I wanted a Don Gardner Home. WOW!
From the very first call I was treated as top priority. And I made several calls..... LOL
Your team went above & BEYOND to assist me in every way. They certainly have made this experience the best!
So for that... I want to say "THANK YOU"!!!!!
P.S. My builder loves the plans as well, Great detail!

I just wanted to take a minute and let you know what a wonderful job Tricia has done with my plans. I am very happy with the result and she was great to work with. Very knowledgeable, patience and responsive.

3.20.2015 - Joey Gray, Top Notch Construction Services
I have so many good things to say. One of the things I love about Donald Gardner is his tray ceilings in particular. I have been building for 45 years and have never been so impressed by a few simple numbers. Here locally, if there is a house for sale that he designed, the real estate companies put right up front that he was the architect. There's no doubt in my mind he is the number one architect in this country. The name of my company is Top Notch Construction Services. I love what I do and that's what makes me good at it. I can tell Donald Gardner loves what he does also. Using Donald Gardner's blueprints will bring the quality and structural integrity of any house up tremendously.

1.22.2015 - Ray Southeastern Design, Inc.
Don Gardner Architects have become an essential part our our business here in Louisville, KY and the surrounding regions. Between our company and previous companies that we have been a part of and/or worked for, we have been utilizing Don Gardner for more than 13 years. The plans built, most of them for custom contracts, have always been above and beyond our personal expectations. Our clients couldn't be happier with the selection of plans and the finished quality and feel of their homes. In some very small cases we have asked for alterations to existing plans and we always receive them in a speedy and professional fashion. We can't say enough about these guys and gals...Our company simply could not be as successful as it is today without this important and valued partnership. We look forward to many more years with Don Gardner Architects and their professional relationship with our company.

1.8.2014 - Brad D. Cummings Construction Co. Inc.
Donald A. Gardner Architects offers wonderful house-plans at affordable prices. We have been fortunate enough to build several plans we have purchased from DAG and they have always been well received by our clients. Detailed and builder friendly drawings.

2.14.2013 - Kenneth S.
Having been building homes for over 25 years, I find that your homes stand out above the rest. Thank you for great designs!

2.21.2012 - Denise H.
Donald A Gardner Architects have a special feel for the many variations of comfort and likes and dislikes of people. Their homes designs are lovely and comfortable and practical and durable. What better is there?

9.9.2010 - Mike and Carol E.
It has always been a dream of ours to build one of your fantastic homes. We first fell in love with your designs while living in Dallas, Texas. We had seen one of your Victorians featured in a magazine, and that was it! We were hooked! We even went searching for the home, and just happened to stumble upon it while on a little adventure. While it was out of our price range, the sheer beauty of the architecture and the gorgeous and livable floor plan were a joy to see. Fortunately, you don't have to be wealthy to recognize good taste and fine art when you see them.

We are hoping to build a home in the next few years and I am sure that it will be one of yours. We are empty nesters and we are looking for a small home with the little extras that you always put in your plans regardless of the square footage. We can't wait until our long-time dream becomes a reality.

We just thought you would like to know that you have fans and that you have added beauty and grace to our world.

The Don Gardner website has played an integral role in the marketing of Fox Lair. The Don Gardner site is extremely professional, very user friendly, and is by far the most comprehensive website for a potential home buyer to utilize. From the builders, to potential buyers, and me, the Realtor, we utilize the Don Gardner site on a daily basis. If we have questions the customer service staff at Don Gardner is always very helpful. We usually have the Don Gardner home page up and running when clients walk through the model home. Thank you for making our jobs of successfully marketing and selling houses in a tough economic climate just a little easier.

Just wanted to let you know that I am thrilled by your latest plans. The screened porches, large bedrooms, single eating areas, spacious laundry rooms, mudrooms, bonus spaces, greatrooms...and no wasted spaces...all add up to the perfect home. I have looked for years for homes with these attributes, and your recent designs really have them all. When I am ready to build, I know where I will be getting my plans. Thanks for designing my dream home.

2.5.2009 - Julie H.
Just wanted you to know that this plan, ( the Sorvino) is so cool! It addresses all of a family's needs, today. Love the His/Hers closets, the "e" space, the angles, bonus room and open floor plan! If we were ever to build again, this would be it! Kudos to you!

9.10.2008 - Brian J.
We chose the Eton from your design choices. It is an awesome design and perfect for our growing family. Each child has their own bath, large living, dining, kitchen, and master suite. Just wanted to let you know that your designers did an awesome job with the Eton.

8.13.2008 - Jonathan S.
Thank you for the plan of a home ( plan 712, the Driftwood) that seems to spell success for my company in these hard times.

5.7.2008 - Kathy B.
I just received your House Plan of the Week, The Palmeri Plan# W-1213, and I couldn't help but send kudos to you for such a beautiful plan!! The master suite is to die for, with perfect closet spaces and such an innovative bath plan. I love how you kept the shower (large enough to turn around in and sit, but not too large to get cold) and the WC private. The kitchen is awesome with the island, pantry and e-space, not to downplay the well-thought out rounded breakfast nook that will make such a statement of warm elegance. The fireplace on the porch with its built-ins is such a great extension of livable and user-friendly outdoor space. And finally! A plan with a mud room off the garage and the utility room close by (with a window!!) that you don't have to walk through your piles of laundry! Great ideas for younger families with kids and parents involved in coaching/sports and thus never-ending laundry! Great job to your architects!!!

4.8.2008 - Jim and Hayley J.
My husband and I recently moved into our Don Gardner home and LOVE it! We found the Don Gardner website very helpful when picking out our house plans...We have had many people stop by and ask where we got our plans ( 1039 - The Waycross) and have referred them to your website. Thanks!

3.25.2008 - Lisa K.
In our eyes, there is no other...Donald Gardner plans are the best, most appealing, and well designed house plans there are. From the house plans designs to the customer service department--we say "thank you"--well done.

12.21.2007 - John T.
Jan and I have been living in the Bentonville for seven years now, built new for us in 2000. This is just to say how delighted we have been with the layout that affords ease of living in all its forms. We recommend your services to any who are about to choose and build a new home.
