    Dave O'Brien is a DFW treasure. He has 50 years worth of experience as a builder and now lends that expertise in home remodeling and design. Beyond simply producing a set of architectual drawings describing what needed to be done, he saved me over $30,000 by suggesting smarter, more unified ways to approach the challenges associated with upgrading my old house. He is patient, stays in close contact throughout the process, and - in my case - made more than one special trip across town to meet with contractors to make sure that the initial piece of the project would be done properly. He left me with several different working versions of the floor plan to continue the planning process. I strongly suggest that anyone looking for help navigating the challenges of a major remodeling project consider speaking to Dave before deciding on a course of action.

    4.5 Dalvy N. Fort Worth, TX

    Let me start by saying that I am a graphic designer, so, I decided to work on my own Construction plans. During this long process, I got stuck in the project due to not knowing exactly the minimum requirements, required by the Fort Worth planing and development Department, so I decided to call OBrien Custom Home Designs, I talked to Dave, he reviewed my documents and told me that the information that I already have is more than sufficient to get the construction plans to permit. He told me to go ahead and send my construction plans **you are not going to have any problem** when I offered to pay for his time he insisted he did not want to take my money for free. Thanks, Dave for being so honest, we need more people like you in the construction business. You will be recommended by me!

    5.0 Kathy M. Southlake, TX

    We had a wonderful experience with Dave. He designed a custom home for us in Southlake TX. He listened to our wish list and designed a home that worked perfect for our needs that fit the property well. We went through several revisions and Dave made sure that we were completely happy before providing the final set of plans to us and the builder. It was a really enjoyable process. Thank you Dave!

    5.0 Sheila L. Argyle, TX

    We interviewed and hired O'Brien Custom Home Designs after a previous designer did not work out. I spoke with several of his past clients, who all raved about him. Dave is quite knowledgeable and shares his experienced opinion as necessary. He is very conscientious, professional, responsive, and thorough. Working with him was smooth and enjoyable. We would definitely hire him again and highly recommend him.

    5.0 Karen W.

    He is very thoughtful and attentive to detail. He thinks outside the box and works to keep clients happy. Great guy, easy to deal with, easy to talk to.

    5.0 Bruce/julie K.

    He was able to understand my wife's vision and what she was going for from the beginning - able to take her vision and make it a reality. He listened thoroughly and communicated throughout the process. He was very easy to contact and responded quickly, should we had to leave a message. Communication really was just great! The final product was exactly what we were looking for.

    i have been working with them for the past 4 to 6 years already and they provide a very good job every time

    4.0 Terry C.

    They did a plan of my house. Price is excellent. They provided an estimate and were very helpfull. They did a very good job, main thing is that they were very fast, very throughout, did not mind making all necessary changes. Price is fair, timelapse is better from start to finish. Even though there are other companies, they are at the top of my list of recommendations.
