residential renovations

​​"Mike was extremely knowledgeable, and easy to work with when we did a complete renovation of our historic home in Oak Park. We completed our project recently but started with him in late 2017 and early 2018 - he was available to answer any questions we had and provide us with estimates on cost or opinions on changes we were looking to make. Highly recommended."  - Angelo L.

"Hired Michael to plan our renovation. House built in 1960's with some original features and some poorly updated areas. We were very happy with ideas presented, timeline met, communications in person and via email. Listened to our needs and came back with versions reflecting our feedback. Provided top-notch professional drawings, charged a fair price and was easy to work with. Our contractor has worked with Studio Carney plans in the past and was happy with our choice. Michael fielded calls from our contractor as a courtesy, which was going above and beyond. We recommend working with Studio Carney. It was a large project that was a challenge, Michael delivered!" - Marge K.

"Was lucky to have had Mike recommended when I was talking about my wish to add a master suite with a friend. After an initial meeting about my wishes, he presented several different designs. They were all beautiful and I really appreciated Mike's eye for detail. After choosing and tweaking a design together, we got to work. Mike went above and beyond by personally helping me select components for the new bathroom. He was always available for questions and concerns I had throughout the construction process. He often came out to the site to check that the construction was being done to his satisfaction. The end result is the master suite I dreamed of!" - Nancy F.
