Burke Design recently completed a remodel of our 1940 two-bedroom, one bath home. It was a small project by most standards, but was huge to us. We created a wish list of what we wanted and presented a budget and Burke Design was able to make our dream home a reality. His knowledge and experience guided us through the process, and although other larger projects were being worked on concurrently, he made us feel as if ours was the only one that mattered. Fairness and honesty prevailed throughout and we would not hesitate to recommend Burke Design for any project regardless of its size.

We did an extensive remodel of our home with many architectural and construction challenges.


It was an ambitious project but Dave came through with flying colors. Dave is friendly and talented and I recommend him wholeheartedly to anyone.

My wife and I were faced with an enforcement case with the City of Santa Barbara regarding the conversion of our residential property into a permitted duplex. Prior to hiring Dave Burke, we felt hopeless and lost as to how to navigate through the varying levels of bureaucracy inherent to the process, and had no idea as the chances of success. Dave was very straightforward with us, advising us as to the potentially problematic issues with the conversion and the costs related thereto. At the end of the day, hiring Dave Burke was the best decision we made. He delivered everything that we hired him to, met or beat his estimation as to the cost of his services, and kept us in the loop as to the status of the project through its various stages. Our property, now a permitted duplex, went from an eyesore to one of the nicest in the community, thanks in no small part to Dave Burke, and we would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone contemplating a residential remodel.
