Meet Bert Notch of Creativity In Living in Glendale

Today we’d like to introduce you to Bert Notch.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Bert. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I have been in business for over 35 years. It’s always been a problem with construction… People finding out that plans drawn up for their project usually end up costing double of what they were told by the Architect. I’ve spent years studying this problem, and finally came up with the solution. I have now launched a website to help the home owner do their pre-estimate before they spend thousands of dollars on plans they can’t afford to build. It’s free and easy- (estimateconstructioncostfirst.com) I don’t believe in following the crowd. At a time when everyone is using computer drafting programs, I have chosen to stay hands-on, free hand drafting, making me one of only 3 or 4 in L.A. still keeping that fresh artistic look and east to study plans “old school”, according to L.A. city plan checkers.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
The Government planning and zoning restrictions have made it more and more difficult to provide a creative plan for the client.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Creativity In Living – what should we know?
Full Design & Management services- from survey thru interior design and landscape.

Known for one of a kind, custom design.

Free-hand conceptual drawings and plans (old school).

Any shoutouts? Who else deserves credit in this story – who has played a meaningful role?
Those who say “you can’t do that” (city officials and other competitors) make me only want to challenge the situation and find the solution!
