The Design phase…

We start with getting to know you, understanding your lifestyle, and doing a site visit to the lot that you plan on building on. Custom-designed plans accurately reflect the best-suited layout for your lot, land characteristics, engineering requirements, and of course your living requirements. Stock plans can often cause significant cost increases as it may not be suited for the lot that you plan on building on.

During the design phase, we will go through all the necessary planning and budgeting and start development on:  

  • Concept Design Drawings

  • Preliminary Plans

  • Construction Drawings & Site Plans

Special considerations and options are reviewed throughout the planning process:

  • Budgets, timeline

  • Material availability

  • Site conditions

  • Material and finishing selections

  • Individual preferences and unique requirements

  • Sustainability

 

Build:

We will be hands-on throughout the process and ensure that the highest level of workmanship is obtained throughout. You will be given regular update reports along with photos of the ongoing construction. Of course, we would love to show you around the construction site. Please be sure to call ahead to arrange a time due to health and safety protocols.
