Custom House Design

Here's How it Works.

Working Directly with the Designer.

Step 1: Meet with the Designer to discuss your plans

A simple phone call could save you thousands of dollars and reduce the challenges you may face. Recently a client contacted us and after our first conversation we helped them identify a way to save a substantial amount of money.

How it works

Choosing the right house plan for your family.

Choosing the right house plan really depends on a lot of factors. Your Personal Designer can discuss these factors in more detail but here are a few questions you may be asked before choosing a new house plan.

What would you do differently?

Consider your current home in this question.

Write down everything you would change to your currently living space. Maybe your kitchen doesn’t have a large pantry or you have always dreamed of having a wrap-around porch. Your list of dream features can really help a designer better understand your needs and wants in a new house plan.

Will your life look different in the next 5-7 years?

Plan for the future.

Looking ahead is critical when designing a new house plan. If your family is growing you may consider designing a house plan with more bedrooms and use the extra bedroom for an office or craft room until your family expands. On the other hand if you are planning to downsize that’s another consideration all together.

What does your lot look like?

Lot topography, size and shape matter.

If you already have your plans you may want to provide the designer with a plot plan. A plot plan will show land boundaries and help determine if you need to consider setback requirements. Sloped lots can be challenging but also make it easier to add a basement. Zillow has some good advice on buying land.

What style of house do you love?


There are so many styles of house plans these days to choose from. But most likely you already know the style you love. A quick search on Pinterest, Instagram or Google images will give you tons of choices. The advantage to a custom house plan is you can mix and match styles to create that special dream house that’s a one-of-a-kind.
