"We were referred to David by a well known builder of quality executive homes in our area.  David was prompt in getting back to my wife and I.  We met him a few days later with a draft of what we wanted.  With his guidance he helped us transform that rough draft into our dream home.   David went out of his way to talk to us about our dream, recommending changes that made sense, both esthetically and from a cost perspective.  He worked hand in hand with the builder we chose and adjusted his work product to address the needs of the builder and local building authorities.   Two years on we are so happy with our home.  We can't say enough to recommend David to anyone who is looking for a skilled, thoughtful, and hard working designer."

"We came to David with a bit of a unique project and he handled it great, helping us with our various hiccups along the way.  The project involved moving an existing house on to a larger foundation, adding an equally sized addition and then lastly, trying to make it all look cohesive and attactive. David was prompt in his responses and helped us take our rough sketches and big dreams and turn them into building plans for construction and permit. David understood our priorities and made an effort to find improvements that improved appearance, function and of course minimized costs. David makes an effort to include section views in the building plans that are actually helpful during construction; our builder was pleased to have them as a reference.  We have already recommended David to friends and they report the same great experience"

We were very pleased working with Dave's Design. We had some basic idea of what we were looking for in building our house.  Dave took these ideas and dreams and made some initial drawings. After reviewing and discussing with Dave we made some changes and he made new drawings. Upon reviewing these we made some more minor changes and approved final drawings from which the official drawings were made. Through the whole process Dave was very accommodating and professional in dealing with us.  I would highly recommend Dave's Design to anyone looking to build a home.

Eising Farm house 2015

Jarvis Ontario

Last year we embarked on a new journey – designing our new house.  We had an idea of what we wanted and tried to find layouts to help us describe our vision, but they were inadequate.  With the recommendation of our builder, we sought out David Bennett of Engaged Custom Home Design. 


Dave helped us feel comfortable, listened patiently to our preferences, made excellent suggestions and was able to capture our vision for our home quickly and helped make our dream a reality. 


We recommend Engaged Custom Home Design to everyone.

David has developed into a top designer of renovations and new house construction. He designed our new office interior that we are very proud of. David is just about to design our new house for my Nancy who lost her right leg BTK

(below the knee as a result of an motor vehicle accident. David's best advantage is his superior skills at working with the building departments to get his drawings approved. Our drawings for the office took about 30 minutes."
