We own a multi-family home in Oakland California, and wanted to add an accessory dwelling unit to the property. We interviewed a few architects, and ultimately chose to hire Irene. From the very start, she was timely and has actively worked towards completing the project on budget and in a timeline manor. After the initial consultation, I provided a list of "must have" and "nice to have" for the proposed structure. After a couple revisions, our plans maximize the living space for the area provide and will integrate seamlessly within the existing property. I am truly amazed at how she was able to incorporate all these elements into the ADU, while ensuring the space did not feel cramped. She provided suggestions for ideas which we hadn't even thought to ask for! In addition to designing the ADU, Irene has helped us through the post-design phase steps, including obtaining structural engineer plans, the permitting process, and other pre-development activities. Overall, I am extremely pleased with the work Irene has done, and she has truly made this a smoother process than I had initially imagined. I'd highly recommend her to any friends or family, and plan on using her services for any future projects!

We recently purchased a run down, small 2-bedroom, 1-bathroom house with the intention to turn it into our dream home. We interviewed a few designers, and ultimately chose to hire Irene. From the very start, she was timely and has actively worked toward getting us into our dream house as soon as possible. After the initial consultation, I provided a laundry list of "must have" and "nice to have" changes for the home. After a couple revisions, our plans now have every single item from both of my lists incorporated into the plans, including expanding to a 4 bed / 3.5 bath, a laundry room, walk in pantry, large master bathroom and walk in closet, and an open concept indoor/outdoor covered deck off the back of our kitchen. I am truly amazed at how she was able to incorporate all these elements into a house, and ensure the rooms still all flow nicely. She also provided a ton of suggestions for ideas which I hadn't even thought to ask for! In addition to designing an amazing home, Irene has helped us through the post-design phase steps, including obtaining structural engineer plans and gaining city approval. Overall, I am extremely pleased with the work Irene has done, and she has truly made this a smoother process than I had initially imagined. I'd highly recommend her to any friends or family, and plan on using her services for any future homes or projects!

Irene is great to work with: competent, helpful at providing examples and ideas; easy to work with; happy to adjust to make your design feel like it is yours. I loved our project and how it came out: she helped me to redesign our backyard.

I had the pleasure of working with Irene Menocal on my San Jose house and I must say, I was blown away by the results. Her attention to detail, creativity and professionalism made the whole process seamless and enjoyable. From the initial consultation to the final walk-through, Irene took the time to understand my vision and made sure every aspect of the design met my expectations. She was always available to answer any questions I had and offered invaluable advice and suggestions. I am truly grateful for the beautiful and functional design she created for my home. It exceeded my expectations and I have received countless compliments from friends and family. I have already recommended Irene's services to others and will continue to do so in the future. If you are looking for an architect who truly cares about your vision and is committed to creating a beautiful and functional design, look no further than Irene Menocal. She is a true professional and an absolute pleasure to work with.

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
