Tai has a been a pleasure to work with, and he has listened to my budget constraints and proposed buildable, affordable solutions without being asking.  I have never had to ask him to revise a plan due to over complexity, and he is quick to propose a reasonable alternative when my requirements changed.  I will use him again.

Having completed two separate rebuilds and remodels with Tai, it is my pleasure to recommend him without reservation. He was always available, timely, and instructive.
His ability to help us with our expanding visions and using multiple building permits, allowed us to rebuild our Montecito home. it was a pleasure to work with him!
I only wish we could do another project...

Philip Oates

It gives me great pleasure to write a letter of recommendation in support of Tai Yeh Architect. I have known Tai for ten years as a Supervisor for the County of Santa Barbara, Building and Safety Division. 
Throughout the years we have become close professional and personal friends.  I have been directly involved with reviewing his plans or would overseeing staff that would review of his plans.  He is an accomplished Architect who is dedicated, creative, and commitment to providing the best design, innovative service and professional leadership for his clients. 
He is impressive but unassuming, modest, trustworthy and comfortable either designing commercial or residential buildings. Tai is an Architect who raises the level of professionalism through his insight and hard work.

Monica and Jim Carder

Tai was our architect for a recent total remodel of a house in Birnam Wood. Tai worked closely and very successfully with our designer, Bruce Gregga. Our experience with Tai was extremely favorable. He was very easy and pleasant to work with, most professional, knowledgable and an excellent problem solver. We experienced no delays in obtaining permits from Santa Barbara County and approvals from various Birnam Wood Committees. This was due for the most part to Tai’s diligence and perseverance.
We would highly recommend Tai Yeh and would enthusiastically work with him in the future should the need arise.

Suzanne Rheinstein

Working from Los Angeles, I have complete confidence that Tai will continue to do the superb job he has done so far.  Meeting all deadlines and guiding us through the intricacies of Santa Barbara regulations.  I value his suggestions and solutions.

Tai's experience and expertise coupled with his temperament made the process of redesigning my home a collaborative, positive and effortless experience.  He is a wonderful listener and is able to take a client's vision into reality. He is very well respected by the county and city offices as well as structural engineers and contractors as was evident from his working relationships with these entities. From my experience, the approvals process was effortless thanks to Tai's facilitation. I would recommend Tai for any project from new construction to remodel.
