"On October 10,2013 I met Jay Jay Shapiro and Lorenzo Rudy DelGado of Visual Concepts, llc at my house on Canyon Rd. Jay Jay said he had some ideas for this old house that was built around 1934. They impressed me with the vision they already had formulated in their heads of the transformation of an 800 square foot almost derelict structure into a modern house. I knew I found the right company to take on the biggest endeavor of my life. Fast forward one year later and to say I was pleased with the end result of that vision is an understatement. They added features I didn't know there was room for, but are absolute necessities in the 21st century. A second bathroom, library/computer room, laundry room. Eleven foot ceilings opened up the small square footage making the house seem twice as big. Well, I could go on and on, but I think you get the picture. The entire process from the planning, design, permits, building, and details were done with a smooth process and they took care of everything. They have extensive knowledge and professionalism with great attention to detail and were extremely knowledgable and familiar on how to navigate the proper process to remodel a historical home and get the approval necessary from the Historical Development Review Board. They communicated in an efficient and very pleasant manner.
Jay Jay Shapiro was the architect and Lorenzo Rudy DelGado was the project manager. I would like to mention that I live in California, so this was all done through the email except for going there with my husband on November 3, 2014."

I was referred to Visual Concepts through a relative. From the Very First Meeting Rudy Delgado listened to what I had in mind. It was a Casual Conversation so I did not think much. On our second meeting after listening casually to what I had in mind he presented me with rough drawings and instantly I knew he had realized my vision and got it perfect. With minor adjustments to suit the Lot I was well on my way. Apprehensive about what would come next, Rudy Walked me through every step of the process. This experience has been effortless, even in lining up the right contractors, and walking through all the red tape in getting permits and so on. This team is a 5 Star quality team, I fully trust and appreciate. Once my project is complete, it will be added to their award winning portfolio.
