Schachne Architects & Builders designed and rebuilt a master bathroom in my residence. The project started out as a problem solving matter: no one could identify the source of a leak in the master bathroom exterior wall. By the time the project was over we had completely demolished, redesigned and rebuilt the master bathroom. There were 3 stages to this project: find and resolve the leak (it turned out to be due to the foundation); redesign a new master bathroom and rebuild it. Our bathroom turned out tremendous. It is a very sophisticated design that was built extremely well. I highly recommend Schachne Architects & Builders. We have plans for a major remodel in our home in the future and we will be using them again. George C.-Plantation
We selected Schachne Architects and builders to do a small addition (cabana) to our home since we liked the fact that we got two services by one person for a job as this. He was very attentive from start to finish and stayed on target to meet our aggressive deadline. The work is first class and we get loads of comments on finding such a detailed builder in south Florida.
We would recommend his work to anyone looking for additions or any other construction where you want personal service and no runaround like you can often get with builders, especially for smaller projects, in this area. We enjoy our new addition often and will think of Schachne Architects and Builders next time we do one.Katherine S.-Davie
Working closely with Stan Schachne greatly helped us in meeting all of our renovation goals. We wanted a kitchen full of light, fairly traditional but with an eclectic twist. We also wanted a large porch with a tropical flair off the livingroom and a brand new hurricane-rated metal roof. Stan guided us through the design and construction process and turned our concepts into functional space in ways we had not thought of. His solid experience avoided costly errors and he always provided us with accurate estimates for costs and time to complete the project. He was able to make recommendations that we had not thought of, to optimize the quality of the overall design while keeping construction costs down. His experience and advice turned out to be worth a great deal. He helped us define our goals. He understood factors that affected the overall quality of the project, such as the need for indoor-outdoor family life and the real square footage required for the porch of our dreams. While we had a good idea of what we wanted, Stan didn't only review our decisions, but also made recommendations whenever he saw a potentially better approach.
Stan created the best physical environment for the kitchen and the porch within both our budget and our time frame. He had our best interests at heart, and we were always able to communicate with him openly as the project developed. We were living abroad at that time and comunications could have been a problem but Stan made it very easy: he called us, emailed us, sent pictures of the renovation at every stage, he even took pictures of the kitchen at different times of the day to show our the light changed the room...
Stan carefully edited our ideas by giving to our works of art space to breath and light to unleash their magic. Luisa and Cliff T.-Plantation
Schachne Architects & Builders has done several projects in my home - kitchen, 3 bathrooms, plus a front porch addition. All of my experiences with Stan Schachne have been positive. He was always available to answer questions, and solve any problems. He was especially helpful giving me a "vision" of what I wanted.

Schachne Archtiects was the architect for our home renovation. The existing house was a 1950's era one story 1900 sq.ft. house and Stan designed a second floor, Key West inspired, renovation adding an additional 1500 sq.ft.
They provided great value and were easy to work with. Communication was responsive and provided clear answers to our questions. We are very happy with the way the house turned out and would highly recommend them to friends and family if they needed an architect.James A.-Coral Ridge
Jim and I LOVE our new bathrooms. It is amazing to us that you completed 2 bathrooms, from demolition to brand new, in only 6 weeks. Your PROFESSIONALISM and the manner in which you work and the team you work with are OUTSTANDING, Aside from having the most beautiful bathrooms in town the one thing that mattered the most to us was your constant COMMUNICATION. We also appreciated the fact that you LISTENED to us. You let us know every morning and every evening what was happening, who would be working, and when we were away you even sent us pictures. That made us feel so COMFORTABLE. We had complete CONFIDENCE in you because of your HONESTY and communication.
From the start with the drawings, changes, permits, schedule and especially working in a condo, you listened to our needs and fit them into the total plan. It is tough working in a condo with all of our rules and regulations but you and your team did exactly what was expected which many contractors do not do. I didn't have to worry about that aspect which was great. The quality of the work was EXCELLENT. All of your teams were polite and knew each other which really made the entire process much easier. They were also ON TIME and if they were going to be late you called me. We can't "THANK YOU" enough for making this experience as FLAWLESS as you did. Please feel free to give our name and number to people who seek a reference and I would be happy to "show off" my bathrooms to anyone who wanted to see the excellent quality. "September 18, 2012"
All the best!Maureen & Jim-Ft. Lauderdale
“Stan did a masterful job in constructing a 1,500 s/f two story addition onto our home with minimal disruption of our living space. He worked with us from design phase through completion and truly has stood behind his work. Most telling was how Stan handled his job during hurricane Wilma. THe morning after at the break of dawn Stan was in touch with us making sure that the temporary wall that divided the addition work held through the night. He said , “I couldn’ t sleep all night worrying about your family’s safety.” As it turned out his work with stood the storm . But it was refreshing to know that my contractor cared that much about his work and my family . That truly characterizes Stan . We would and have HIGHLY RECOMMEND him to all .” May 6, 2009Eugene P. – Plantation, FL
“We recently used Schachne Architects and Builders as both Architect and General Contractor for renovations on our home. The project included the design and construction of a new entry way, replacement of the existing roof and skylights as well as all doors and windows. We were highly satisfied with the outcome and the process. Throughout the project, we felt that Stan was thorough, communicative and responsive and his follow through to completion of the project was excellent. I wouldn’t hesitate to use Schachne Architects and Builders again. If you would like more detail with regard to our experience I can be contacted via e-mail peterh at info-link.com” May 11, 2009Peter H. – Plantation, FL
“Stan guided me patiently and with integrity. I had not renovated a home before – Stan quickly got to know my style and respected my budget. Once a plan was in place the timeline, management of the sub contractors and attention to my questions and concerns were handled professionally. I never felt “out of the loop”. Stan uses his strength of industry knowledge and human nature to reassure at all phases. I continue to love the renovation and will definitely hire Stan again for any new projects.

“During the design and renovation of our house we were on a business assignment outside of the country. Stan kept in constant touch with us and made what we thought what would be a difficult project into an enjoyable and most satisfying experience. Stan and Donna excel in terms of product quality and customer service and have shown to be committed to doing things the right way. We appreciated their high standards and attention to details which reflects as their own personal philosophy and that of their company. Thanks to their creativity and professional attitude in working with us, all of our requirements were met and turned the experience of renovating our house into a most satisfying one.” February 17, 2010Luisa H. – Plantation, FL
