These guys were great. This was our first new home construction effort and their experience made it a really satisfying and stress free process, especially important as we lived out of Utah before we moved to this home. They helped us design a truly unique mountain contemporary home in Midway, Utah, yet it is very functional. We had special features eg an elevator and radiant heat throughout and Artisans provided every detail for the builder and his subs--and they were accurate. They were also reasonable as to cost and worked on schedule throughout the planning process including with the building department through plan check and during construction. We would very much recommend them and would certainly use them again. Bob and Linda CRead More

Artisans Custom Home Design excelled at turning our ideas into our dream home. Darek understood what we were trying to achieve from the beginning of the process and was able to translate our loose collection of ideas, preferences and tastes into a design that we love. Darek worked through multiple iterations of our plan until we were happy with every aspect of the design. We found their use of three dimensional software to be extremely helpful. It allowed us to fully visualize the designs in order to make changes before construction began. We are pleased with the design work that Darek and the Artisans team did on our home and would highly recommend them to anyone considering a custom home in the Park City area.

My wife and I are building our first home together in the Park City area. Artisans Custom Home Design was recommended to us by our general contractor as they had completed many projects together in the past and are know for their solid work and professionalism. My wife and I had a general idea of the style, design and layout of our new home but really needed the help of an architect to organize these ideas. Andy and Darek were able to turn our dreams into reality. They were very patient with us as we analyzed each revision and made minor adjustments. My wife and I really enjoyed working with Andy and Darek throughout the process. They are both genuine, fun-hearted, professional and devoted to pleasing their customers. Their office is conveniently located in Heber, UT and a large conference room allows for drawings/plans to be spread out across the table and viewed on a large screen TV. Artisans Custom Home Design uses a great software program to display the plans in a 3-D model. This was a great feature that allowed me and my wife to better visualize our new home. As we are nearing the completion of construction on our new home, I am so happy that we chose Artisans Custom Home Design. Andy and Darek were great to work with and have continued to reach out to us throughout the project to see if there is anything that we need from them. We highly recommend them! Andy DarekRead More

ACHD - Darek and Andy have been excellent to work with from their initial design of our home through completion. They very patiently worked with us to get exactly what we wanted, sharing a computer 3D model of each iteration, where we were able to 'walk through' the house, making sure living spaces fit us and that our mountain views were lined up. They did a remarkable job getting the home to fit into the steep mountainside as well -- from foundations to rooflines. While their heavy lifting was at the front end, they visited the site regularly, making sure the build was on target. Our builder loves their designs as their plans are thorough and complete, making execution clear. We love recommending Artisans Custom Home Design to every one who comes by admiring our home.Read More

I have been working with Artisans Design for several years now and have been impressed with their professionalism and design. As a General Contractor I appreciate that they don't mind if I join in with my own ideas and suggestions from a Construction standpoint. Darek and Andy are wonderful to work with and make a difficult process easy! They also do a nice job working in 3-D which helps many clients to visualize the home when they would typically be able to do so.Read More

Darek and Andy of Artisans Custom Home Designs designed our new mountain home in the community of Greenerhills, Heber City, UT. We could not be more pleased with home. Artisans listened carefully to our needs and lifestyle before designing our home. The attention to detail and creative concepts far exceeded our expectations. We have built 12 homes, this home was the best experience from conception to completion.Read More

I would highly recommend Artisans Custom Home Design. My husband and I went to them with some very specific needs for the home we were building for our retirement years. Andy and Darek listened carefully to our wishes regarding functionality and incorporated them into an absolutely beautifully designed home with spaces that feel very comfortable, and details that are a joy to have. I believe that their ability to truly listen to their clients' wishes, combined with their artistic ability, is what makes them an outstanding architectural firm. In addition to making their stated deadlines, they stayed closely involved in every aspect of the project, from the county permitting phase all the way through the building phase, working well with both the county officials and the builder as they clarified and adjusted their plan to fit with the realities of the site. We were on an overseas assignment for most of this time, and they were very good at staying in communication with us via e-mail and Skype video conferences. They kept us up to date with many photographs of every phase of the project. We have just recently retired, are in the process of moving into our new home and are loving every aspect of it. I feel very comfortable recommending Artisans to anyone thinking of building a home.Read More

We enjoy the working relationship with Artisan Custom Home Design and would highly recommend them. They offer a quality working set of plans you can have confidence while building that no details have been overlooked through the design process. As a builder we can have confidence the appropriate products, sizes, dimensions will all add up and work in the construction field. They have great knowledge and experience in designing custom plans on time and within budget that have a very attractive design flair. They have to communicate very well with each client and the respective trade contractors and us as the general contractor for each project. Thanks for making the home building industry fun and exciting to be involved in each day.Read More

They were very attentive to our requests and created a floor plan and elevation that exceeded our initial expectations. They were friendly, easy to work with and attentive to all concerns. We love the home and are always happy to recommend them.Read More

Very knowledgeable about the area where we are going to build. Beautiful designs. Very easy to work with. We showed them our rough drawings and ideas and they were able to design a beautiful home for us. We are just going into the building phase and I would love to come back with pictures when it's finished. They were professional and friendly and listened to what we wanted to see. Because they live and work in the area, they are very familiar with the building codes and professionals there and it made the process smooth and easy for us. They see the project all the way through and are very helpful and easy to get ahold of for questions or concerns. Thank you to Artisans Home Design for my beautiful home!Read More

We love our wrap-around veranda which was thoughtfully planned by Artisans Custom Home Design. It has dramatically improved the look, feel, and functionality of our 100 year old home. Andy and Darek listened carefully to what we had in mind, and made every effort to get the design right. The plan was easy to read, and the measurements were accurate. Artisans is now in the process of designing our kitchen addition. Without reservation, we highly recommend the services of Andy VanWagoner and Darek Slagowski at Artisans Custom Home Design.Read More

I have worked with Artisans Custom Home Design on several projects not just the one I have listed and they are currently designing two homes for clients that I am working with. What I like best about them is their ability to listen to the what the clients' needs are and designing the best home for each client. What's also important is that they are always available when I call or they return the call in a timely manner. They are also available throughout the course of construction for any issues that may arise unlike many designers that leave you on your own to figure it out.Read More

I hired Artisans to design a custom home and couldn't be happier with their work. Andy and Darek really went the extra mile and added a huge amount of unforeseen value. I had interviewed a number of architects who had national reputations for building luxury homes in Park City but Darek and Andy won my business (and my praise) by both being open to what I wanted, and by delivering incredible insights that constantly elevated the design. They've also been involved in overseeing and helping to deal with additional issues that have come up during construction. If you're building a custom home in the Park City / Heber area, you are a fool if you don't contact them first.Read More

I have been a residential custom home builder for 18 years and have worked with Artisans Design on 3 projects since 2008. I am very pleased with the quality of their CD's (Construction Documents) and design development capabilities. They are very responsive to my client input, yet always improve on those ideas through their experience on other projects. I think Artisans provides great value engineering and creativity. I also like their in-house relationship with structural and civil engineers. I highly recommend their services.Read More
