Custom House Design

ansley-cottage-elevation

If you're looking for a custom design for your home, our designers can work with you to create a new concept and develop construction documents of your dream home that reflects your individual style and needs.

When working with you to design a custom home, the scope of project work falls into two phases-the design phase and the construction document phase.

In the design phase, you will work closely with one of our designers to develop a design concept. Through communicating and meeting with you, we will turn your ideas, into conceptual plans that include the first and second floor plans and the front elevation. This process will continue until a design has been developed and approved.

Once a design has been approved, projects move into the construction document phase. During this phase, your conceptual plans are transformed into a set of construction documents, drawn in CAD (Computer-aided Design). These drawings will allow you to see your plans in detail at 1/4" scale and with dimensions. After any necessary revisions are done, we will complete your set of construction drawings. After completion, your plans will undergo a quality control process to assure the accuracy and quality for which are plans are known. The process marks the finalization of your project.
