Sharon listened to and understood our requirements and likes/dislikes and this is evident in the drawings. We have plans for a house that goes beyond function but reflects elements of our personalities which is what makes a house a home. We would have no hesitation in recommending Sharon Johnston Designs for Living, and do so on a regular basis." Private client-Ballydougan

“Sharon provided excellent advice and support during the planning process.”

Designing a new house from scratch can be a daunting process. We are so thankful that we had an architectural consultant who was willing to take the time to seek to understand our requirements and to guide us with her professional and reassuring manner. Sharon provided excellent advice and support during the planning process. She helped us think through how we planned to ‘use’ our house and suggested solutions to various issues that arose along the way. Sharon’s attention to detail was always evident and combined with her wide knowledge of materials she has been invaluable in helping us create our family home .

“Sharon has designed the perfect family home for us.”

We couldn't recommend Sharon Johnston Designs for Living more highly. We had been through the planning application process once before without any success. After discussing our initial plan with Sharon, she had so many fresh and innovative ideas that we hadn't even considered. Sharon has designed the perfect family home for us. She has such a welcoming, friendly and transparent approach that once you arrange a meeting with her, you won't go to anyone else.

“She is reliable, professional and fantastic.”

From our initial free consultation with Sharon when she was able to provide us with ideas, guidance and fee structure, to the completion of our two storey extension, we have been very impressed with the excellent quality of service we received. Sharon was very flexible with appointment times, offered us great design ideas and prepared and submitted our final plans for planning permission and building control approval. Sharon kept us well informed throughout the entire process. She is reliable, professional and fantastic. We would recommend Sharon Johnston Designs for Living to anyone considering a building project.
