"Ellen's research and report, with particular relation to the architectural history of the property, contributed significantly to our understanding of the building"

"The documentation and drawings Ellen uncovered during her research were a constant source of reference and used to inform the strategy for reconstruction both structurally and architecturally."

"The end result was a very detailed account of the development of the house from the details of the original building through the various changes and who was involved."

"We were very impressed with the contents, writing, images and excellent layout of Ellen’s research report"

"Your knowledge of architecture was so thorough and on a personal basis I loved working with you."
