MaryAnne did an incredible job helping design our beautiful new cottage. My wife and I are delighted with both the quality of the design that she produced and the user friendly manner in which she guided us through the process. We were especially pleased with the manner in which she consistently reflected our style throughout the design, her attention to detail, and her willingness to work (very!) Long hours in order to meet tight timelines. My wife and I count ourselves lucky to have had the benefit of her help and would highly recommend her to anyone requiring drafting services.

Waddell Custom Homes has worked with MaryAnne for many years now. She provides all of our design work for us and we couldn't be happier with her and her teams work.
MaryAnne and her team are very professional and we enjoy working with her as she helps conceptualize and finalize all of our clients design projects. Her drive to provide the highest quality work always surpasses both mine and our clients expectations. She is certainly a key partner of Waddell Custom Homes and a very talented designer.

We were lucky to have Maryanne design our cottage on Stoney Lake. One of the most important things that Maryanne started with is “listening”. She really worked to understand what we wanted to use the cottage for so that she could design something that we would be happy to live in for years. She asked a lot of insightful questions and blended our wishes with the practicalities of design. We were limited to a very specific footprint to build on, and Maryanne got the most out of every square inch. Any design process includes a number of iterations, and Maryanne was always open to our feedback…happily providing us with alternatives to consider. Having already designed many cottages, Maryanne was able to suggest details that we had never thought of…but that we are grateful for now. In the end Maryanne designed a cottage for us that comfortably holds a lot of people, but still manages to feel cozy and warm. She’s the right person to bring your dreams to life!

MaryAnne has this amazing ability to take your ideas and transform them into what you want and more. She has an uncomplicated approach to what she does that makes it not only inviting and easy to work with her but also a pleasure. Her knowledge of construction is exceptional and her drawings are well put together and thorough with plenty of detail.
She’s able to take your ideas and transform them into something buildable, thinking not only about the details but also about the ‘how’ it gets built, which is extremely important in this industry and often over looked leaving those who are building scratching their heads and wondering ‘what next’.
Her services don’t just end when her drawings are complete. She makes herself available to questions throughout construction and maintains a high level of commitment to each project that makes you feel well taken care of.
I couldn’t be happier to work with her on all my projects and can’t recommend her enough to everyone I meet who’s looking for someone who offers her type of services.

I recently contracted Maryanne Noffke to design my first home. From the beginning planning stages of my project to the end Maryanne patiently answered all my questions. Her experience in my township and knowledge of building codes helped me acquire my building permit without the need for any revisions. She recommended building materials and design changes that I hadn’t thought of before consulting her. I would recommend Maryanne and her team to my family and friends any day. Thanks Maryanne!

As a Design/Renovate/Build firm we know that we are only as good as those that we choose to work with. We have partnered with Maryanne for several years now and know her to be exceptional at her craft. Her designs and construction drawings are beautifully detailed allowing our clients to see "virtually" what their space will look like. Our carpenters love her work as they are always clear on the structural specifics and details. For anyone looking for a great residential designer we highly recommend adding Maryanne to the mix!

Hello Maryanne. I just wanted to share with you and all the people that are considering to have their home or cottage designed and drawn by you. Well, people, you should hire Maryanne because she knows her stuff. I just recently reviewed her working drawings for the Benson Cottage up in Muskoka. I am the Estimator for Muskoka Lumber in Port Carling Ontario. The drawings were well put together with all the information required to build the building. I do not see many drawings that come across my desk that have all the required information on the drawings. You made my job easier and it was a pleasure to review.

Soon after starting up my Construction Consulting Business in 2009 I met Maryanne Noffke and soon we starting collaborating on many new construction projects. Maryanne is a young, fun and innovative Designer. I never encountered one issue in obtaining either a building permit or a planning application with one of Maryanne’s design drawings. I know from my experience Maryanne is highly regarded and respected by the Chief Building Officials from the local Municipalities. It is without hesitation that I can highly recommend Maryanne Noffke Design & Drafting”

We were introduced to MaryAnne through family who had their new home plans designed by her. After our first meeting at our cottage we knew that MaryAnne understood what we were trying to achieve in the addition of a screened porch and renovation to the existing structure.
MaryAnne was very knowledgeable in the design elements and building code requirements required by the local municipality. She was creative while at the same time always respectful of our ideas and suggestions. MaryAnne came in on time and budget with the plans. We could not be happier with the end product.
We would highly recommend MaryAnne to design your next project.

We met with MaryAnne Noffke in the spring of 2015. During the following year, she was the designer/draftsperson who guided us through the design process for our new cottage. Initially, she listened to our ideas and looked through pictures with us of what we did and didn't like in cottage designs. We met with her in her office and communicated often through emails and texts. MaryAnne replied promptly to our issues and often spoke to the appropriate building departments on our behalf. She always approached our ideas and concerns in a positive, calm manner, reassuring us that she could make this all work...and she did!
As our cottage took shape over the past year, it was wonderful to see her design ideas in concrete form. She made a small space work perfectly and we look forward to moving into our new cottage this spring.
We confidently recommend MaryAnne Noffke as the designer/draftsperson for your building project.
