We bought a 2 bed/1 bath in San Francisco's West Portal neighborhood. Good area, but house was old (not much done to it since its building back in 1920s), dark, cold, creeky, and too snug for our family of four. We wanted to remodel and expand to a 3/2.

We talked to several architects -- we found Phil Rossington in a newspaper article that highlighted his work. We had not heard of him before. After our initial meeting to discuss what we were looking for, we had a good feeling about him. In the end, he was the right choice: He's smart, professional, honest and has a great eye for design.

He drew up plans for basically a total makeover. The thing to know about Phil is that he's very detail-oriented. That seems to be his reputation among contractors. He thinks everything through, and can easily toggle from a macro view to a micro (down to the fixtures, which we relied on him to help us pick). So what you get is really the complete package (when it came to paints/stains, he deferred to his colleague Gale, a color consultant who also knocked it out of the ballpark with her choices).

The end result? A beautiful house that's a pleasure to live in. It's bright (with skylights), warm, cozy, modern. It exceeded our expectations (and we had high expectations). We constantly get compliments from both friends and complete strangers (walking by). We often see people stop in front of our house and point (we're assuming for good reasons).

Yes, with any remodel, cost is a concern. Phil offered lots of options and ideas on how to reduce expenses and manage our budget.

We'd use his services again in a heartbeat. Rossington Architect comes with our highest recommendation. If you're like us, you only want to remodel once -- so do it right the first time. Go with Phil.
