Unquestionably the best way to achieve a comfortable home design for your family is for you
to discuss your needs with a designer in person. Whether you simply need a revision to a
plan you see on this site, or prefer a custom designed plan; we have 30 years experience
working with homebuyers. We recommend that you visit the
for forms to download and fill out. Time spent with these worksheets will help you collect
your thoughts, prioritize your needs, and prepare for conversations with your designer.
Revisions can vary from as simple as adding footage to a room or two, to combining features
from two or three plans into one. Or perhaps you love the plan, but prefer a different style
of elevation. Do you like the master bath in the plan, but you have a kitchen you've always
dreamed of owning? We can help you achieve your those dreams.
to preliminarily discuss your project or schedule an appointment.
Some people shy away from new
designs or revised work because they feel the costs will be prohibitive or it will take too much
time. The cost does vary dependent on the degree of work. Minor changes or a different
elevation cost less, generally the cost of a "stock plan" plus an hourly fee for changes.
More extensive revisions or a custom design is charged by the square foot of total footage.
However, this charge is usually less than 1% of the cost of your project. The additional
expense will be more than justified to have a home that meets more of the needs that caused

For some families, their dream home is their current home -- with a few modifications.
Remodeling may be the right solution for you. We began doing remodel design almost as soon as
we started the company, referred by builders who build our homes. They knew we could put
together good, workable solutions for the homeowners whose needs have changed but preferred
to stay in their current home.
to discuss the various issues and costs for remodeling.
While we are proud to sell our "stock plans", we have built our company on designing dreams
for homebuyers. For most people, the construction of their home is the largest, most
important decision of their life. We believe it deserves the extra time, cost and planning
necessary to create your dream.
