Testimonials

My husband and myself have worked with John on several custom homes. We actually found John through friends who highly recommended him to us! We were so pleased with his attention to detail and the fact he could make solid suggestions to improving our floor plans, which resulted in easy sales of our homes. I seriously recommend John I can honestly say you won’t be disappointed with the results!

Our custom builder recommended John for the design of our dream home, and we couldn’t have been happier. John was great to work with and we would highly recommend his services.

A very good friend of mine recommended John to design my house plans.  From the first time John sat with my wife and I, I knew that we had made the right decision to use him.  John’s expertise, attention to detail and creative thinking enabled us to build a dream home for less than it would have cost us to purchase a “cookie cutter” home from a developer.

Jeff Orphanos, President- Omega Homes

We enjoyed working with John to design the plans for our custom home (1850 sqft bungalow).  He came highly recommended.  He was very knowledgeable and was able to provide guidance and insight that we truly appreciated.  He had recommendations/suggestions that were helpful and added features/functions that we would not have had without using him as an Architect.  Our house was just completed in March.

We have worked with John Badia (MASTERPLAN DESIGN) on the design of our dream home in 2021. We found him to be very professional and easy to work with. He is very knowledgeable and pays great attention to detail. He captured our ideas very well in the design process. He has also been very helpful in dealing with suppliers’ drafts for roofing and flooring components as well as with the City. The whole house design experience with John B. was very smooth and seamless and we would definitely recommend his services.

I’m building my forever house in Ottawa.  I originally hired an architect to come up with a design.  The house the architect designed would have been fine, but my family and I weren’t as excited about building this house as I felt we should be.  Our construction got delayed, so we hired Masterplan Design to come up with a new plan.  
We are “over the moon” happy about our experience with Masterplan Design and John in particular.
We are extremely excited about building and living in the house he designed for us.

We met John through our builder who had retained him create the plans for our house. From day one, he was incredibly professional and knowledgeable. I sent him (a lot) of emails detailing each of our spaces, along with inspiration photos, and he listened to everything we asked for and over delivered on the final plan. It was exactly what we wanted! The house is now complete, we’ve been living in it for a year and it’s great! Thanks Masterplan Design (and John!) for getting us started on the right foot for this important project of ours!!!

I have been working with Masterplan Design for more than 10 years. Many custom architectural drawings I received from this company for structural review. 

Masterplan Design plan could cover their client architectural desire precisely and I do not remember any comments from them later. On the preliminary drawings they provide the best structural system and reasonable size of structural elements.

Masterplan Design is one of best designer who knows structural concepts very well.

As a result after finalizing the size of structural elements by me the original proposed architectural plan will stay almost unchanged.

The other advantage of being a team with Masterplan Design is that the architectural and structural comments from City of Ottawa for building permit application is minor and many time is Zero.

There is a minor waiting time for getting Building Permit.

Also on the construction site the amount of question for unclear items is close to zero.

I have been very happy to work with Masterplan design for time saving from the beginning to end.

We worked with John at Masterplan Design on the design of our forever home in 2021. John was great to work with and reasonably priced. He listened to our wants and constraints and delivered on everything we wanted. He provided great guidance in tweaking the design to meet our needs. He was extremely quick in getting the original design and subsequent revisions to us. We are currently in the building phase but look forward to moving into our forever home.

Masterplan Design worked with me for the design and permitting of my custom home in 2016. The drawings package was very detailed and allowed for easy contracting to get built. The Process was very smooth and they were accommodating with our ideas and added some Architectural flair that was a great addition. I would highly recommend Masterplan to anyone designing their dream home. Thanks again John.

We would like to that you for your efforts in the preparation of our new home design being built. We can not thank you enough as the trades that have been working on site have worked with the new home build plans that have been submitted to the City of Ottawa with very minimal questions. 

You made it very easy with our changes to the floor plan without any stress. Your emails and phone calls were always answered by yourself without delay. You were open to talk to the trades that we had on site. You just made our life during a stressful time, easy.
