Our Process

Initial Consultations

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.

Design Completion and Review

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.

Construction Documents

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.

Frequent Questions

How do you differ from an Architect?

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.

How much does a custom home plan cost?

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.

Do the plans include everything I need to get a building permit?

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.
