Why hire a Residential Designer?

A home is a complex collection of parts; it serves a function that is unique to you and thus deserves to be well planned. As a designer, I bring years of experience and creativity in crafting a set of plans for you. Completed plans convey to the builder information necessary to make the building process a smooth and pleasant experience.

Quality construction plans are a vital communication tool necessary to protect your investment, ensuring your builder has a clear understanding of your vision and expectations. Our design software also allows you to clearly see your home in digital 3D throughout the design process.

Step 1- Free Initial Consultation

This allows us to get to know each other and to get to know your project. Together we will discuss your goals, wishes, ideas, and lifestyle requirements and answer as many of your initial questions as possible. The important part of this meeting is that we listen to all your goals and dreams for your home, as well as your limitations. Design fees are based on the finished square footage of the project, not the construction cost, and will be tailored to meet your design needs. The decision to move forward is up to you.

Step 2- Preliminary Plans

Preliminary ideas and plans will be developed for your project; usually floor plans and elevations. We will go over them together and get your feedback about what you like and what you want to change. We utilize 3D virtual design software so you can walk around and through to visualize your project inside and out. Making changes is a normal part of the process and we don’t charge extra for revisions. As the design materializes, we can tweak things to suit your needs further, until it fits your lifestyle, property, and budget.

Step 3- Final Plans

Once you are satisfied with the preliminary plans, we will produce the necessary construction plans and details that the contractors, suppliers, bankers, appraisers, and building officials will need for the construction of your project. We also work closely with them to make sure the process goes smoothly.
