MJM Design

My name is Michael Mageau. I own MJM Design. I grew up in the Detroit area and have 30 years experience in the architectural profession. I have designed everything from garage additions to 40,000 SF estates in neighborhoods with small historic lots in the city to large country estates. My work does not reflect a particular "style" but rather the look and feel of the project is determined by the Owner and by the style of the existing home if it is a renovation or addition . I have completed over 150 residential additions and new home projects in Michigan and Texas including a few projects in Las Vegas and the Middle East. I provide a very personalized, high quality design service with excellent documentation for a competitive fee. Please review some of my work below. Please contact me to set up an appointment to discuss how I may assist you with your new home, addition or renovation. I can be reached at (313-316-3118) 7 days a week.

My wife and I are very happy with the work Mr. Mageau performed for our project. We had some strong ideas about what we wanted going into the project. Mr. Mageau listened and drew exactly what we asked for. During the process, he offered a number of suggestions and options that ultimately resulted in a final set of drawings that, while different from our initial ideas, provided a much better (and workable) solution. He responded to questions quickly and incorporated requested changes. Also, he offered insights that we found useful and will be able to use when we finally have the project bid. He punctual for appointments and professional in all of our interactions. We would highly recommend him.

Review by in Macomb, MI
My wife and I are very pleased with the work that Mr. Mageau performed for us. He provided a detailed list of the drawings he would create with a timeline and firm price on the quote. We had basic floor plan and roof line changes that we wanted to incorporate into our existing house and Mr. Mageau refined those changes and produced final construction drawings. Mr. Mageau is very professional and it was a pleasure to work with him. We would not hesitate to hire Mr. Mageau for any future projects we may have.

Very emotional and not customer friendly. Took initial $600 and left an unfinished job.

Michael is very professional and really take care of the customer. He accommodated our requests with more professional ideas. His work looks great. I would recommend Michael to anyone who is thinking about using an architect to design a new home or do a major remodeling of an old house. We like what he has done for us.

My husband and I hired Mr. Mageau to help us in getting our custom home floorplan. He was very, very patient with us, as my husband and I had different design ideas for our home. In the end, Mr. Mageau managed to satisfy all of our needs and wants into our dream home within our budget. He's such a pleasure to work with, very patient as I've mentioned, and very efficient with his work.

Working with Mike was a real pleasure. He visited with us personally a number of times and provided several drafts before finalizing the plans for a guesthouse we are building. He balanced the needs of our budget and our aesthetic preferences while also patiently accommodating our own uncertainty about what we wanted. I'd definitely recommend him!

Review by in Houston, TX
I would like to take a moment to commend Mike Mageau for his efforts thus far in assisting us with designing a house that meets our needs, use and location. Mike came to us through Service Magic and saw the rough plans similar to what we thought we wanted. He listened to what our life style, plans for the future, and suggested a layout meeting our key requirements. He was very professional and we all took our time realizing this was a home custom designed for our family, needs and usage. We are completing the efforts with soil boring and engineers to review the final plans. The community arch approval is next door and approves.

Review by in Sugar Land, TX
We hired Mr. Mageau for a specific purpose - develop a floor plan and elevations for our new home. He was not asked to develop construction documents, as our builder was going to develop those himself. We asked him to help us develop the concept and provide a "sketch drawing". He met with us to better understand what kind of home we wanted and from that initial meeting he put together some ideas, met with us and got our feedback and then developed a conceptual floor plan and elevations. Although all we asked for was a "sketch drawing" Mike provided a full CAD drawing of the floor plan, elevations, and sections.

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
