Robert was fantastic to work with. We didn't think anyone could successfully change our kitchen layout but he came up with an "out of the box" design that knocked it out of the park! Our new kitchen is beautiful. Robert is very professional, attentive and listened to our wants and needs. The quality of his work is outstanding and his pricing is very reasonable. Our contractors had no trouble at all following his design to the letter. Highly recommended!

I have worked with and have sent various referrals to Robert. I live out-of-state from where he is located and he paid careful attention and made sure to use codes from my state. I refer whomever I can to him. He is extremely helpful and customer service oriented. He'll do whatever it takes to get it right.

Hart's Design has completed two projects for us. The first was a very large remodel adding a second floor to our house. Robert did a great job of listening to what we wanted and was willing to make changes as we went through the project. We are currently remodeling our kitchen and had Hart's Design do the design work. We will use Hart's Design again for future projects.

My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Hart's Design on the build of our custom home and would like to express our appreciation for the excellent service provided by the firm.

Throughout the project Hart truly acted as a partner in offering guidance and suggestions on the design. Whether in the office, over the phone or on site, our brainstorming sessions always proved enjoyable and productive. Hart's eye for design, attention to detail and vision resulted in a beautiful home we will enjoy for years to come.

Additionally, the cooperation and collaboration between Hart's Design and the builder created a truly enjoyable project experience for everyone involved, a successful result and very pleased owners. I wold highly recommend Hart's design to anyone looking for a tasteful, timeless design.

We were referred to Robert through our contractor and enjoyed working with him right away. This is our first major renovation and we are focusing on rearranging our kitchen/dining space and adding a mud room. Robert came to us with several initial design options and very creative ideas. He was even able to fit in a walk-in pantry and powder room which we never thought we could have in the space.

His easy-going nature and humor put us at ease. His communication was always prompt and he was quick to respond to any design changes/ideas that we would bring to him.

When our bids from our contractor came in above budget, Robert's expertise helped keep the integrity of our design while making some adjustments that would bring some costs down.

One other area we appreciated was his vision for how we could later transform the rest of our house. He kept these ideas in mind while designing our kitchen/dining area/staircase so we wouldn't find ourselves caught with limited choices down the road.

We will be working with Robert for every future renovation project!

Robert recently completed the plans for our new construction. I could not be happier! I have received numerous compliments from the contractors on the design and layout of our home. Robert listened to what was important to us and was able to incorporate all the details we were looking for. Even though we are building in Massachusetts and he is located in Minnesota there were no issues working together. We communicated via phone and email almost daily. He takes pride in each and every home he designs. I would highly recommend him!

We recently hired Robert Hartranft of Harts Design to help us put together

our kitchen remodeling project. In his design, he was very careful

to listen to what we wanted, and even could explain why some things were

not going to work, he than developed a beautiful design for us.

Not only did he do the design, he was instrumental in the construction

management. He took the time to explain each step to us so we always felt

like we were in control and knew what was happening. His enthusiasm yet

relaxed approach to construction help us keep our sanity and our spirits high while

we were enduring our kitchen remodel. Hart's Design will be our architect

for all our future family projects.

Robert Hartranft is the only house planner I will be working with through my entire home transformation. To years ago I saw his work displayed in the parade of homes and fell in love with his designs. When I met with him to discuss plans for the front exterior of my home, he was very respectful, personable, and you can tell that he really loves what he does. He is full of ideas and likes to work with you to create your dream home. I loved his designs for my exterior so much that I invited him back last year to upgrade my kitchen. Absolutely loved his ideas for my kitchen and will be asking him to design my bathrooms as well. I highly recommend Hart's Design.

I hired Hart's Design to design an addition to my home in Edina. This included a garage, workshop, master bath, roof deck, laundry/mudroom expansion. sunroom, and kitchen expansion. Admittedly, I am a very particular/difficult client. Generally, I am not satisfied with anyone I hire and usually consider it successful if the interaction does not end in the exchange of profanity. I know this about myself and tell people this prior to working with them. I have never offered to serve as a reference for any contractor or designer in the past.

Robert was excellent. He took our ideas, added his expertise and brought it to life. He was responsive and timely and the rates were very reasonable. He delivered exactly what he said he would. I particularly liked that I could work with him to create a design/blueprints that we liked. I was then able to take these detailed plans and get bids from a number of contractors rather than being tied to a single design/build firm. This was some of the best money we spent on our addition.

I would recommend Hart's Design without reservation.
