Eric Baker designed an addition to our home (mother-in-law-suite) that is absolutely spectacular. Our vision for the project presented several technical difficulties that Eric incorporated perfectly. He provided excellent advice during construction, clarified the contracting requirements and limitations, and made us quite comfortable with the many detailed decisions that had to be made during the building process. He was also an excellent go-between with the contractors when needed. He remained involved from beginning to end, and was on-site when it was most critical. He's also a very nice guy whom we enjoyed working with. He has our highest recommendation!Read More

Eric Baker was Architect, General Contractor and Designer of our new home. The very successful residential project was entirely Eric's vision. The home built with top quality materials and leading edge technology retains all the charm of a sprawling Colonial farmhouse. The architectural details and nuanced design are the result of both Eric's vast experience and excellent taste. Eric's patient and collaborative style made the home building process really, really enjoyable.Read More

We decided to work with Eric after seeing his reviews on Houzz. He was very quick to respond to our initial message and was accommodating right away. Eric helped to challenge our initial ideas and we completely revisioned our renovation. This is our first home and first major renovation project. We felt like Eric had our best interests in mind and provided clear and thorough plans. He made himself available whenever we had questions or tweaks and in the end, the project will be exactly what we want. Eric was open and fair about costs and helped to keep us within the range we expected. Eric was especially valuable in connecting us with a reliable contractor. He has been checking in on the project as we are underway and is communicating with our contractor to be sure the final product is what we all envisioned. We are thrilled with the progress so far and cannot wait to see the end result!Read More

Adding to our prior review to give context: We were looking to expand our kitchen, add a mud room, bring the laundry out of the basement and create more ‘space’ on our ground floor. Eric presented a concept that added a center hallway, closets, a foyer and a flow that changed the entire feel of our downstairs that brought back some of the historical design and look. Through the course of discussion, we added some work upstairs; at which point Eric came back with a second floor plan that changed our whole view on our house and made it into a long term livable space with two active boys and lots of visitors. By using the space over the ground floor addition, he provided us with a new master suite, and extra second floor bedroom, and laundry upstairs (making our mud room even more usable).Read More

Eric Baker did many clever things for us during the redesign of our home. In our thinking, it was merely an extension to an existing home but we gained much more than a larger kitchen. For example, Eric designed the addition so that "traffic" could move in a Figure 8 pattern that is more convenient and now beloved by grandchildren. Eric also educated us about "strong" and "weak" sides of a home, something that was very important to a corner house on a busy street. The humble back door to the original house is now our front door and it balances our center hall colonial so that it perfectly lines up with the original front door, but with a more welcoming and convenient entrance. He also rightly persuaded us to ignore what I first thought was a great idea about where to place a door. The end result was having a doorway to a new patio that is in a direct path from the kitchen. We had a couple complaints but they were minor. We wish that the opening for a sliding door started from a different side and that one window in the kitchen was centered between the corner and the end of the new cabinetry. The latter was really the result of us not making our mind up soon enough about which cabinetry to buy; it was centered until we changed our minds and it didn't occur to us to be annoyed until a year later. So it really was a minor concern and I suspect that every job has some feature that you would do just a little bit differently. But for us, a significant home addition is a once-in-a-lifetime event so it was good to have someone with a professional eye knowing what to suggest - and what to say "no" to. fyi regarding our overall costs, We also redesigned and created four bathrooms and one halfbath so the overall project costs were much higher than the addition. We also had landscaping - yes, it was once-in-a-lifetime project.Read More

We enthusiastically recommend Eric Baker for architectural design work. Eric designed several modifications to our house, including a balcony, mudroom, family area, and structural modifications for two bathrooms. He has a passion and great experience with architecture and home improvement. He had many good suggestions for the work. He combined pragmatic suggestions with an understanding of what sort of modifications would be appropriate for our house. He was also accurate in estimating the cost of of various improvements for our house. He listened well to our particular needs and worked through several iterations toward a design that met our needs. He was patient and always positive and reassuring about choices that we eventually made. He did change our minds on certain aspects of our project, but we never felt pressured to conform to his suggestions. In the end, for certain aspects of the design he did an excellent job accommodating our particular needs. He also had good suggestions for contractors to do the work.Read More

Eric was always a pleasure to work with. We purchased a small one-level house (two bedrooms one and 1/2 bathroom) because we loved the property. We decided to transform ( gut-renovation) our house into a place that would accommodate three children and a dog. Eric was a great listener and his design was not only outstanding aesthetically but functional. Ten years later, I can't think of anything we would have done differently. Our guests always compliment the home's design and are surprised to learn that our home is relatively new. Recently, a friend who is active in our town's historical society asked if we would consider including our home on the town's annual fundraising house tour. We made a great decision by hiring Eric!Read More

We worked with Eric Baker to design a kitchen & family room extension for our home.... which was more like rebuilding our entire first floor from scratch! Unlike a lot of other architects that we interviewed, Eric was upfront with his pricing and followed through on all his promises. His staff included expert kitchen designers that gave us custom details unique to our space. Eric connected us with a helpful contractor who built our extension with great care & attention to detail. 10+ years later, our redesigned kitchen & family room extension has withstood the test of time and whims of style.Read More
