Lyons Dollhouse

Our experience with American Custom Dollhouses,
a division of AAI | Assael Associates, Inc.:

More than three decades ago, a loving Grandpa hand crafted a dollhouse for his granddaughters. As sometimes happens, hard play and years of attic storage took its toll until the little house was in sad shape indeed. Something had to be done. After all, now there is a new little girl in the family (our granddaughter!), just six years old. What to do.

As fate would have it, we found American Custom Dollhouses, and the little house has not been the same. No, strike that. It is the same, the same as when it was new and Grandpa’s little girls first laid eyes on it. After a meticulous restoration of our little fixer-upper by American Custom Dollhouses, Grandpa’s great-granddaughter plays with her beautiful dollhouse with the same joy that her Mom did years ago. With more little girls to come, we know that this family treasure will create special memories for generations to come.

We strongly would recommend and refer Daniel and American Custom Dollhouses.

Yours truly
Daniel Lyons

Re: Letter of Reference for Assael Associates

To Whom It May Concern:

ZMG Construction, in partnership with Prospect Real Estate Group, is a major developer of hospitality and residential properties. Assael Associates designed and built our welcome center sales model for our property named Palma Sola Bay Club located in Bradenton, Florida. The highly detailed AAI scale model built by Assael provides an extensive visual illustration of the features, advantages and benefits of our twenty-four building, custom finished residential property so that future residents can make informed decisions regarding their purchase. In several instances, we have observed that the model has enhanced the motivation of consumers to make buying decisions as they imagine life in our community. We have been very pleased with this wonderful sales tool and do not hesitate to recommend Assael Associates for any of your creative design work needs.

To Whom It May Concern –

I had the great joy of working with Assael Associates, Inc. on a photo opportunity project for the Hettema Group. Daniel, Toni and their team were outstanding collaborators and continually came to the table with wonderful design solutions. It was, far and away, one of the easiest, most successful creative relationships I have ever been a part of.

The project finished ahead of schedule and under budget. And their design was an overwhelming hit. As a result of which, this temporary photo op was shipped back to company headquarters for permanent display.

I hope that I have the opportunity to collaborate with them again soon.

RE: Assael Associates, Inc. Letter of Recommendation

To Whom It May Concern:

Recently, the Orlando Wetlands Park hired Assael Associates, Inc./Orlando Scale Models to build a model of the Orlando Wetlands Park. Daniel and Toni Assael met with City staff several times to design the concept and to ensure that the graphics were adequate. Then the Assael team went to work and created an incredible representation of the Orlando Wetlands Park.

The Orlando Wetlands Park is 1,650 acre wetland treatment system with forests, marshes, 18 miles of berm roadways, pavilions, buildings, etc. The Assael model did an incredible job capturing the essence of the Park and telling the Park’s story in a 3 dimensional way. They were on time, on budget and exceeded staff expectations!

Daniel and his team are truly creative and gifted in creating 3D models, I would highly recommend them for any creative endeavor.

As an architect at BHM Architecture, Inc., I designed projects for a number of clients, including Headquarter Honda and Headquarter Volkswagen dealerships. When there was a last minute challenge to provide scale models, I assigned the task to Assael Associates Inc. (AAI). AAI designed and built three highly detailed architectural scale models, on a tight budget and within a tight time frame. Our client was very pleased, and so were we. Assael Associates Inc. came through.

Currently I work at another firm but feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
