Review by in Santa Cruz, CA
Ted Young was introduced to me by the realtor who helped us buy a house in Santa Cruz. The house had a storage shed/carport that had been illegally converted into a dwelling unit. It was awful; ugly, in bad repair and nowhere near any building code. We knew it had to go, right down to bare dirt. I met with Ted, showed him some preliminary floor plan ideas I had for the structure. He listened, inquired and showed that he had a keen appreciation for what we wanted to do. He was off to the races. Within a week he had four alternative layouts for us to consider and we quickly chose one. It had an open floor plan with high ceilings in the living area, a separate bedroom, a bathroom and a small workshop. The clean, attractive design melded well with the existing house. And, Ted offered his services at a most reasonable price. Then we began the city approval process. I tested Tedâ s patience by revolting against some of the cityâ s demands for building design and excessive fees. Ted was always there to support me and offer constructive solutions to the issues raised. We met with the Building Department innumerable times over 18 months. We got our permit. Ted was always calm and resourceful. I could not have done it without him. Now the structure is nearing completion. It is wonderful, attractive, functional and elegant inside and out. It is an outstanding addition to the housing in Santa Cruz. I highly recommend Ted for his architectural design talent, his thorough and complete work, his reasonable fees, and his ability to work congenially to overcome obstacles.
Response by Young Residential Design: Hello John, It was a pleasure working for you to design your brand new Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU). We greatly appreciate your business and hope that your new ADU structure will serve you and your family many years of happiness and joy in the future. I think it turned out very aesthetically pleasing and a great fit to your property. Thanks again John.

Project: Hire an Architect to Design a Project
Ted first worked for me as a laborer/carpenter back in 2002. Ted designed and drafted plans for an ADU and did a great job, and then Ted also drafted plans for a garage and room addition in the Scotts Valley area which was completed around 2012.
Response by Young Residential Design: Hi Larry, thank you not only for the jobs over the years in 2011-2012, but also the collaboration we made on some design/build projects in Santa Cruz and it was great learning from you and your team on the construction sites back in the early 2000's. You gave me a lot of opportunity to learn and I will add that to my resume along with construction work on the actual job site, which was a great learning experience. I always recommend to young draftsmen and designers who are just starting out, to gain some hands on field experience. Thanks again Larry.

I wanted to share my experience about Ted Young, who drew up the plans for our home in Carmel By the Sea. He has done more than one project for us. From the beginning, we had a good feeling about Ted. He listened to what we wanted and continually adjusted our plans as needed. He was always available by phone, text, or email. He made several trips to our house, which was over an hour from his office, to measure and look at innovative ideas we had, or to meet contractors. I canâ t say enough about his great customer service. His down to earth, approachable personality, made him a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend Ted to anyone who needs quality designed plans for their home at a reasonable price. We will definitely use Ted again.
Response by Young Residential Design: Hello David, Thank you so much for your second review of my company. We greatly appreciate your business as always, and it was wonderful working for you on your project. As always, we are here for all your home design needs and look forward to working with you again in the future.

Review by Andrew B. in San Jose, CA
Ted Young if you want a genuinely bad customer experience then Ted Young is your guy. If there is any urgency in your project what-so-ever or you have any complexity in your project then you will do yourself a disservice by hiring Ted. While his contract includes a clause that included deadlines he ignored them. He also requested payment well in advance of when the conditions for the payment were complete. He insisted that drawings are never accepted the first time around but when he was provided a list of over 20 items that he was missing from a checklist published by the city which outlines items required in a drawing he simply ignored the concerns. When he was sent an email by the city stating that the drawings would not be accepted due to a code enforcement violation he simply ignored it. These issues combined with an extremely dismissive and condescending attitude toward any concerns that I raised as a customer lead to an extremely unproductive relationship and what often felt like attempts at extortion for even the most basic changes. I was so disapointed by Ted Young Residential Design that I have fired him and have decided to finish the drawings myself. Do not hire Ted because of the TYRD that he is.

Seal of Approval

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.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
