Testimonials  
- Schultz Design & Drafting designed and developed lake house plans from concept through construction prints. Jon met us at the job site to review basic concepts and images we found on-line. Jon listened to our ideas and was attentive in his responses. His input took our ideas to a new level and exceeded our expectations.

We live two states apart, Jon provided .pdfs of drawings and jpgs of images to communicate. Jon’s years of experience has created a network of professionals to assist from engineering issues to obtaining construction bids. We will hire Jon during construction to evaluate critical stages of the process.

Thank you Jon for helping making our dream come true!" Paul and Kristie S.

- Jon and I worked through some very unusual design elements for my house remodeling. He was easy to work with and very accommodating and provided contacts on different topics such as live roofs. I believe the remodeling effort will add beauty and functionality to my home and the prints will make it much better to plan and budget with the general contractor.

I am an engineer and have ideas which Jon skillfully incorporated into my plans.

I appreciate having form AND function in my home design and I value dedication on a project. Our deck design is an on-going example of this plus an exercise in materials cost-management. When completed, the deck and pergola will camouflage an ugly power line which bisects the view from the living and dining areas. And the deck access will integrate the Prairie-style home into the sloping yard while accommodating the needs of my multi-generation family.

I have enjoyed working with Jon and would recommend him to my friends. Nancy M.

- Jon's enthusiasm, innovative thinking and attention to detail sets him apart from the rest. He offered innovative ideas, projects and professional suggestions.

We worked on this project with Jon remotely since we live out of state. He was very responsive to my feedback and we quickly iterated on layouts and designs via email and video conferencing. He also went above and beyond to independently coordinate with our contractor to ensure everything was encompassed

in the plans. I would highly recommend Schultz Design + Drafting." Leonna and Jeff M.

- I am writing to recommend Jonathan D. Schultz, R.A., NCARB as an architect for your project. Jonathan is a very capable architect and has high attention to detail and personalizes each project to each individual owner. I have had the pleasure of working with Jonathan on past projects.

Jonathan is an outstanding individual with a strong character. He has the ability to produce impressive results in a wide variety of areas, being organized and motivated, self confident and success oriented.

Jonathan's background in architectural design and construction allows his ability to focus on working drawings while providing creative design solutions. He is a dedicated architect. I have confidence in his creativity and I am sure that he is motivated to give the best of himself on your future project." Peter S., AIA, LEED AP

- Jon and I worked together on building and designing an accessible addition for a home. Jon's attention to detail and creativity took the project to a whole new level.

I've worked with several architects on many projects and was very impressed by the construction specs. Jon drafted for our project. The specs were very detailed and precise. The specs that Jon drafted cut down significantly on questions during the onsite building.

I plan on Jon being a part of our design team for all of our projects in southwest Michigan. Karen K., Founder Functional Homes, Inc.

- Schultz Design far exceeded my expectations when it came to remodeling our home. Jon was very professional and always willing to adjust his schedule in order to complete the job. He was able to provide us with three separate rough drafts regarding the remodel, which gave us tons of options and new idea's. We will definitely go to him again with our second edition we plan on adding on. Troy, F.
