The important part of initial meetings is that we listen to all your goals and dreams for your home, as well as your limitations. Then, as the design materializes, we can tweak things to suit your needs further, until it fits your lifestyle, property, and budget perfectly.
When all the design elements are in place, preliminary design documents will be printed and evaluated with you, to make sure everyhing is complete. This final design will then be signed off as approved by you, and your construction drawings will be produced.
With a custom designed home, we work with key collaborators in your project, such as your preferred truss manufacturer, site and stuctural engineers (or those we recommend) and other industry professionals to create a complete set of house plans ready for permit submittal.
Our talented professional building designers create stunning unique home designs with neccessary code-compliant details to obtain permits and construct your home. We create detailed structural & permit documents that a general contractor follows to build your custom home. However, where an Architect would source and list everything for your custom home (down to the nails) - we leave the sourcing and finite specification of materials to you and your builder. That helps you be more flexible with choices, and greatly reduces the costs of creating the design.
Our costs are not based on final valuation or construction cost of your home, but are instead a low cost based on the heated space (square footage) of the home. The price range will depend on the complexity of the house and the site, and the final price will be determined by the design specifications. Because the costs of our services are not based on the value of the home being designed - you can expect to save thousands over the usual costs of hiring a full-service Architect.
Our home plans are detailed to meet IRC (International Residential Code) requirements, and also Oregon and Washington local code amendments. Some areas require additional information, such as wind and seismic calculations, or energy code compliance worksheets. If you need any of these special items, we can work with professionals we have relationships with to provide them cost effectively, or you are welcome to use your own. In addition, our construction support staff can assist you with questions or concerns from your building department - making the permiting process run smoothly. Some issues, unique to your situation, may incur additional costs.
Our design team has created plans for the homes of well over 60,000 families. Over time, the needs of those families have typically changed, and many have returned to design new homes or remodel their existing one. Once again, we are able to work together to address their needs - outstanding design, careful attention to structure and code issues, and proper integration with existing architectural style.
Odd as it may seem, the recent dramatic downturn in new housing construction and decline in existing home values has created opportunities for homeowners whose homes no longer serve their needs. Some are finding excellent land values and low cost of construction — for them, a new, efficient and sustainable home, tailored to current needs, may be possible. For others, the answer is a remodel, to reshape their current home to meet a number of typical goals.
Whatever the changes, whether simple design of the structural shell, or coordination of interior designers, landscape architects and other professionals - our staff are ready to help. The process is really quite simple:
