Meet

Whether we meet face-to-face and chat over tea, or use technology to meet virtually because you live in a different state, the process begins here. Your wants, needs, desires, and dreams for your new custom home or renovation and addition project have been in your mind for a while. Here's where you communicate those ideas to me so I can produce a home design that transforms thoughts to reality.

Due Diligence

There are governing bodies, building codes, zoning restrictions, and other guidelines that will determine what we can and can't do with your new custom home design regarding the overall limitations on the building. Want to build a 10-story home on your 10-acre country estate: is it allowed? Probably not. During the due diligence part of the design process, I contact the necessary government offices to make sure we satisfy these requirements.

Report

Research has been completed.  Notes have been taken.  Tea has (hopefully) not been spilled.  I'll report my findings to you here in the process.  In our 10-story home example? The zoning office says that is not it not allowed.  However, in this example, we can design a home that is a maximum of 45 feet tall, which is plenty of height to design a fantastic home for your family.  This will inform our concept moving forward.

Sketch Concepts

It all begins with simple tools: a pencil, an eraser, pens, and paper.  Using these tools as a part of my designer's process, and with your needs for your home in mind, I produce a series of sketches that represent my vision for the floor plans and front elevation for your new custom home.
