Daryl helped us design our dream home. He was very timely, available to meet in person whenever we needed, at his office or out at lunch. He is very tech savvy which also made it very easy to exchange ideas and changes on plans through email. His prices were very reasonable and his product was very well put together. Daryl was very understanding through all our changes on the design, he never made us felt as if we were a burden on him. We highly recommend Daryl for anyone looking for a home designer & drafter.

Daryl is the man! Had to have a commercial bathroom redone. He was very easy to get a hold of when I had questions and he went out of his way to ensure that the end result was exactly what I wanted. Highly recommend.

I was referred to Daryl by my neighbors after he created the plans for an expansion of their home. Working with Daryl was a wonderful experience! He made a critical suggestion to my original idea of adding a room to my Tahoe Park home that preserves the natural flow of the home, will save me money in getting me a larger addition while not having me have to move out and store furniture and will add overall value to the home. Daryl worked with me around a busy work schedule, promptly incorporated all the suggested changes I made and always communicated promptly. I would highly recommend him. Thank you Daryl for making what could have been a difficult experience, as many friends have shared, a very enjoyable one!

Honey Design & Drafting, LLC was fast and professional. We appreciated the speed with which they were able to create accurate drawings of our home. We will definitely use them again. Daryl is great!

How do you like getting your plans approved on the first go? We hired Daryl to design plans for a house expansion project. He was punctual to our first meeting, listened closely to our needs and came up with great suggestions and tips. Daryl accommodated our revision comments with great courtesy and got the updates in promptly. We got the plan set back within very reasonable time frame, and I couldn't help but be amazed at the attention to details in the final work he delivered. Our City approved the plans without a single comment and we got the permit in a record time of just one week and a half! I couldn't be more impressed. I would never hesitate to send anyone his way for excellent, reliable service."

We have worked with Honey Design and Drafting on a number of challenging projects in and around the bay area and Sacramento. With each home, they have far exceeded expectations, providing quality design and incredible customer service."

I hired Daryl to design two custom homes for my family � one quite recently, one about 4 yrs. ago. Both times, he did an excellent job. Daryl is a skilled designer/draftsman. He has excellent industry experience and knowledge. He is patient through the design process and diligent in completing his work. Daryl is also very reasonably priced and never tries to nickel and dime his clients. I give Daryl high marks and would use him again. I'm pleased to offer my highest recommendation."
Brent Boyer, Granite Bay, CA
We were very pleased with the design that Daryl Honey did for our family room addition. His drawings were well done, clear, and very detailed. Daryl spent a lot of time visiting us at our home, helping us with the design, and providing good ideas and options that helped us move through the process smoothly and easily. He was friendly and easy to work with and I would recommend him to anyone remodeling their home in the Bay Area.

The building permit was issued last week and went through without a hitch. I was so happy. The contractor started work the very next day! Thank you so much for great drawings and a solid structural engineering firm. Thanks so much for your excellent work, Daryl."

Now that your role in the project appears to have come to an end, I want to express my appreciation for your efforts in shepherding the permit business to completion so competently and in what must be for the City of Berkeley a record time. It was a pleasure working with you, and, given the complicated logistics, I am especially grateful for your prompt communication. This is "customer relations" at its best. With best wishes for a continued success in your business."

We had Daryl come out and quote a job to do drawings for remodel permits in Sunnyvale, including a reconfiguration (new rooms and a bathroom). Daryl was punctual (early), had a great attitude, was knowledgeable about current codes, had good ideas for the space, delivered the promised work product within the agreed upon schedule, had a reasonable price, and was easy to work with. Daryl was professional, produced high quality work (approved first time by the city), and we would definitely use him for our future architecture needs, and recommend him to family and friends for their architectural needs. Thanks for a job well done."
Jason Lin and Elly Park, Sunnyvale, CA
"Thank you for all you are doing for me--I really am convinced that no one would have gone so many extra miles for me or been as cheery and lovely to deal with as you. I am sure that your positive countenance in dealing with the County has been very helpful and I am much more relaxed knowing you and Honey Design is taking care of things. Experience counts."
Marci Miller, Sacramento, CA
"My wife and I met with a number of prospective Engineering, Draftsmen, and Architects for addition plans for our home in Discover Bay, CA and selected Daryl with Honey Design. Honey Design provided exactly the right mix of design expertise, competitive pricing, creativity, and engineering proficiency. We signed the contract and within a couple weeks had our first glance at our expanded home. While we had a general idea of the floor plan and style of the home Daryl was able to provide additional creative insights to guide us in the right direction. We recently submitted the plans to the Contra Costa Building Department and without even a phone call or a single change they were approved. We would highly recommend Daryl and Honey Design to anyone looking for new custom home or addition plans."
Ryan and Melissa Nowacki, Discovery Bay, CA
"Daryl is easy to work with, very knowledgeable and professional. He sees the whole picture and is very creative. Daryl also listens to our input and is timely with his deadlines. I will use Daryl again in future projects and recommend him highly."
