The Interview Phase
This is certainly the most important phase of the design process. Here we will gather the necessary information for the design of your home. This can take place in person or by phone/ email correspondence. We encourage you to bring to this meeting all materials you have prepared along with any design requirements. Examples include, the square footage limit, room requirements, visual references that shows what you are looking for in your home and any other information you feel may be necessary.

The Design Phase
During this phase, we prepare a preliminary or schematic design of a floor plan and front elevation from the information received in the interview phase.

The Working Drawings phase
In this phase, a complete set of construction documents will be developed to include the minimum required specifications and details for a permit ready set of custom floor plans otherwise referred to as a "Builder Construction Set".

Our Speculative design package (for builders) is designed to accommodate home builders who build homes as specs for future sales to potential home buyers at large.
