Design Process Frequently Asked Questions

How do I find a floor plan?

The answer is different for everyone.  It can be as simple as purchasing a stock plan and building it exactly as designed.  This works very well for people who have seen or toured an existing house and loved it, often because it takes a lot of the guesswork out of what  the finished product will look like. 

More often though, people see a stock plan that they like.  But after they think about it, they want to change it by adding rooms, changing the kitchen layout or changing the exterior styling. We often assist our clients by purchasing a stock plan and personalizing it to meet their needs and to adapt it to their home site.

At the other end of the spectrum is a home we design together based on both your current and future needs, and the land it will be built on.  This requires more time and effort from both parties, but results in a one of a kind home that suits your lifestyle and looks like it is a natural part of the landscape.

Even if a stock plan is used, it is usually necessary to redraw it to conform to local codes and practices.  We charge according to the level of service provided but the initial consultation is free of charge.
