A Few Client Testimonials.......

First, a Very Brief Testimonial . . . .

"I don't know how he (Mr. Thuersam) designs something so unique in so short a time."  Wade Avant, Landfall client, his home design won a "Designers Choice Award" from the American Institute of Building Design.


"[The design phase is complete] but certainly not the years of enjoyment we plan to have at the beautiful home you designed for us. Thanks very much for making our home design process so much fun!  Stay in touch and see you soon."

Chuck and Lisa, Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina

Dear Bernie,

"We would like to offer our sincere thanks and appreciation for an outstanding job that you did in designing our new home at Ocean Ridge Plantation. You took a collection of our thoughts and ideas and assembled them into a design that reflected our needs and lifestyle.

Your experience blended function with flair and created a home that was in accord with our neighborhood while havings its own distinctive flair. It is something we will be proud of for a long time to come.

We especially enjoyed working with you, the candid dialogue, the give and take and the input of your vast experience with the architecture of southeastern North Carolina. 

Your knowledge of the architectural requirements at Ocean Ridge Plantation proved invaluable resulting in a very quick approval process and the accuracy of your design streamlined the building process. The result of all this was an ahead of schedule completion of construction which pleased us very much.

Again, thank you and please feel free to use us as a reference for future prospective clients of Shoreline Design Group."


Walt and Sheila Stachura,, 561 Dartmoor Way, Ocean Isle Beach, NC.

Dear Bernie,

Steve and I never really thanked you for your incredible talent---it is one thing to be able to design a home---it is another to so perfectly decipher exactly what we were looking for, especially when most times we were not sure what we wanted.

We were pleased and excited about the response people had when viewing our home during the Parade of Homes. Steve and I wandered about as if we were also just visiting and could not believe the overwhelming enthusiasm people had; the corners and interesting room shapes, our little catwalk, the amazing views from every room---are just a few of the unique touches that make our home so wonderful.

Thanks again, we will recommend you to everyone we meet.
