“Steve Riley is truly a master of custom home design.  He incorporated our ideas seamlessly into a design we are extremely happy with.  The whole process was a pleasure; Steve really listened to what we wanted and intuitively knew exactly what we were envisioning.  Thanks to S.P. Riley Residential Design we can make our dream a reality!”
- Jan & Stephanie L, Fort Langley, BC.


“Steve Riley created the design and layout of my new home. I had some specific ideas in mind and wanted to build a home that would complement the lot and "bring the outside landscape in". Steve was very quick to pick up on my vision and was able to design a home that brought that vision to reality.  It was a pleasure working with Steve throughout. He was very flexible, patient and accommodating. I have recommended Steve to others in my family and would recommend him to anyone interested in building/designing their own home.”  
- Todd T, South Surrey, BC.



“We came to Steve with a decades-long plan that we had (poorly) sketched out on paper.  He was able to magically transform our visions into a detailed, well-thought out house plan.  When we asked for specific changes, they were seamlessly executed.  When we asked for his opinion on options or design conundrums, his suggestions and advice were much appreciated, and clearly demonstrated his expertise in home design.  We would highly recommend Steve for your design project, whether it is a humble cottage or a dream house”

“No renovation is ever easy, but the best advice we received while working on ours was from Steve Riley, our designer, "Now's the time to get rid of the weird."  Steve's designs far exceeded our expectations. Our house, which was a traditional 60's bungalow, is now modern and beautiful. Steve was very patient with us, as this was our first major renovation. He is very knowledgeable and highly skilled. He was a true partner throughout the process and genuinely cared about the outcome.  We love our new home!”

“Steve took our chicken scratch drawing of a floor plan and finessed it into a beautifully designed home.  He was accurate and thought through all the details so that when construction began there were no problems or plan design issues.  I would certainly use Steve’s services if we should ever have to build again....great service!”
- Peter & Marja VG, Princeton, BC



“We are incredibly happy with the renovation plans Steve Riley put together for our home and feel lucky we had him on board for this project. We simply provided a general feeling of what we wanted in our new home and he made it really spring to life. Top-notch work and professional service. We highly recommended Steve Riley to anyone in need of a great designer.”
- Ruben & Margaret Z, Richmond, BC



“We had Steve create a master suite for us in the lower floor of our house.   The design that Steve came up with was beyond our expectations.  He opened up the entire area and created an adult zone for us to relax and hang out.   He took care to place the bedroom away from the hum of our pool house and created a spa like bathroom at the spot with a free standing tub and a rain shower and a huge dressing room.  The result is an open and airy master suite that is saturated with tons of natural light.  He also created a separate kids bathroom to keep them out of our sanctuary.  All through the process, Steve was very courteous and professional to deal with.       
I will recommend Steve to all my family and friends and hope to work with him for all our future design needs.”

“Steve designed our executive home of about 7,000 square feet plus a detached triple garage on a large lot in South Shaughnessy, Vancouver, BC. He was 15 minutes early for our first site appointment and had taken pictures of the lot and surrounding areas before I arrived. I was very impressed by his professionalism and approach to the project.

The house is rather hi-tech. It has geo-thermal HVAC system, on- grid solar electric panels, elevator, indoor in- ground sixty two foot long lap pool, heated drive/walk ways, HEPA air filtration system, filtered drinking water, high velocity air handling system and a host of other gizmos.

Steve was very patient in listening to what we wanted and was able to incorporate all of our wishes into his design. He was able to navigate through the City Hall’s stringent building, zoning and building permit application process requirements with little or no fuss. Best of all was when my contractor saw his package of drawings, his remarks was “I’ve never, in 21 years building, seen such a complete and detailed set of plans...” During the entire construction phase, we had no need whatsoever to call on Steve to clarify anything at all. The details were all there in the plans, although Steve did drop by on several occasions to satisfy himself that the builder was complying with his design.

We all like Steve’s quiet, unassuming but very professional approach to his work.

We’re enjoying our retirement home which represents all that we had wanted in our home, for the past 20 months. If I have to downsize, I’ll definitely consider asking Steve to do the design again.”

From a happy and grateful client.
