What Our Clients Say…

We’re convinced we have the best clients, and we’re proud to be an almost 100% referral based small business.  But don’t take it from us- here’s what our clients have to say.

“It has been a pleasure to work with Rueger Riley on several projects. I have been impressed by their versatility to meet our objectives with a wide range of architectural styles. They have helped us with a historic home renovation, designed a new modern downtown home with rooftop deck and are working on a ranch addition. Each time I have appreciated the options they have presented and the collaborative experience of working together. I feel like the Czyzyk’s really value our input and feedback to let a design evolve into plans that are spot-on. Tommy and Laurin have been attentive to details, mindful of budget, and easily accessible for revisions, resources and questions. This is a top-notch outfit.”

-Jamie G., Asheville, NC

 “These two are amazing! My wife and I recently purchased a house and decided to remodel our kitchen as it was small and out of date. We sat down with Laurin and Tommy and told them what we thought we wanted done since our kitchen space was extremely awkward. When they came back to us they presented two set of plans … the ones we asked for, which were OK, and then the dream kitchen we didn’t even know we wanted till we saw the plans.

Truly, it was astounding the creativity and use of space they presented, that put the ideas we had in our head to shame. They not only listened to what we needed out of our kitchen but were able to take our unspoken and unrealized desires and come up with a design that just blew us away!

If you find yourself uninspired with your architectural plans or unsure of how to best utilize a space I cannot stress enough how talented and creative these two are.”

-Mr. & Mrs. Joe Rodenberry, Asheville, NC

“Working with Thomas and Laurin on our home has been an absolutely wonderful experience. We have been working with them for the better part of a year on planning our home on a lot that has some some interesting challenges and unique opportunities. Thomas and Laurin have proven to be exceptionally thoughtful, carefully listening to and considering our wants and needs while also thinking about the needs of the land on and environment in which the home is to be situated. Time and again, even as we have changed our minds as our project has evolved, they have delivered creative plans that have exceeded our vision while being mindful of budget and other more “mundane” concerns that make projects work in the real world.

I would, without any hesitation, recommend that anyone looking to build or remodel their home or outdoor spaces work with Rueger Riley. The care and pride they take in their work shows and the product will be a reflection not only of their passion, creativity, and experience, but of their ability to design a thoughtful home that is truly yours.”

-Mr. & Mrs. Wadsworth, Asheville, NC

“Over the last ten years I’ve had the pleasure to know and work with Thomas and Laurin of Rueger Riley Architecture.  I’m an Architect myself, and have used their architectural services often when my own company either needs backup, or when we have a specialty project that I know they can take care of.  Thomas’ skill as an architect is an asset for any customer- he has a keen sense of design and materials, and their experience in the construction end of things is invaluable in their designs.  Their work is affordable and timely… plus, they’re both just super nice!  I confidently recommend Rueger Riley Architecture to anyone looking to renovate or design and build a new home.”

-John Forehand, Architect, Chicago, IL

“I recently had Rueger Riley design and make architectural plans for an addition on my auto repair facility. They showed up on time on the day promised. I was blown away by how thoroughly they measured the existing building and the quality of the work. I reviewed their portfolio of past work after the fact and I could not believe the exquisite high end homes and buildings they had designed across the country. The fact that Rueger Riley were willing to help me on such a small project and for such a reasonable price speaks of their wonderful nature. I would highly recommend this outfit for any design or building needs, GREAT or small!”

-Adam Grassette, Asheville, NC

“As a Keller Williams Professional Realtor in the Asheville & Hendersonville area, I am always extremely excited to recommend Thomas & Laurin Czyzyk of Rueger-Riley, Inc. to my clients that are building new construction or need remodels or additions. They are not only very talented, are reasonably priced and professional. I love that they are on the cutting edge in modern, green designs and if traditional is preferred, they still take many of the new features and incorporate them into traditional designs. They are my “go to” architectural firm without hesitation.”

-Cheryl Reavis, Asheville, NC

“We had Rueger Riley do an entire house renovation for us. Our house was a cramped 1,200 square foot rancher and we really wanted to make the most out of what little space we had. They were great and took their time and came back with different layouts for us to work with to maximize our space and functionality. We took down walls and moved stairs and now feel as though our house designed fits our lifestyles much better. Our house is so much more comfortable and functional. They are very easy to work with and open to your ideas as well.”

-Jennifer M.K., Arden, NC

“After meeting with multiple companies we hired Rueger Riley for landscape design and we could not be happier with the result. Laurin is amazing and her eye for design is truly astounding. If you aren’t sure what you want to do, she knows which questions to ask to bring out the design that will fit your family. My thought was to replace the current plant beds with new beds and low maintenance plants. She took it a step further and designed multiple plant beds that allow our dogs to join us on the porch without running through mulch and flowers. It is the perfect design for our house and lifestyle. I would highly recommend Rueger Riley to anyone looking for landscaping design!”

-K. King, Asheville, NC

“I cannot say enough about how happy we are with the work Thomas and Laurin did for us! We did a full remodel on our master bath and they designed it beautifully. They were so patient and resourceful with me being very indecisive and clueless about bathroom remodels. We had a budget to stick to, and they helped us stay on track while still designing a gorgeous space. This is an incredible team – talented, professional, and just the nicest people! I look forward to being able to work with them again on our next remodel (hopefully soon!)”

-M. Hoste, Chicago, IL
