“We had been planning our dream home for a number of years when Heather helped us bring our ideas to life.  She answered all of our questions and was very patient.  We are very satified with our new home and would highly recommend her to anyone looking to build a custom home.”
- Chad & Megan Nagorski

We'll make your dream a reality together.

 

You've searched the web. You've pinned your favorite photos on Pinterest and created an awesome idea book in Houzz. You know what you want, but where do you go from there? 

In a FREE consultation, we can meet to discuss your project, budget, site orientation and initial design ideas. This is a good chance for you to get to know me and to help me better understand the scope of your project.

Should you decide to move forward with design, I'll help you through the process of putting your ideas down on paper. There's no need for you to create a layout; just bring your ideas and, like pieces of a puzzle, I’ll put the puzzle together. Your dreams can be as grand or as modest as your lifestyle.

I listen, take notes, and listen some more. I ask detailed questions like, “Dishwasher to the right or left of the sink?” and “What size is the piano you mentioned and what room will it be in?” All of these details are discussed early on so that the design will reflect the little things that make this home uniquely yours.

Digging into the details.

 

You’ve dreamed, I’ve listened, and now reality sets in…you want a walk out basement, but your site is nearly level. You’ve always dreamed of having an entire room dedicated to your hobby, but your budget can barely handle the necessary square footage. We sift through all these tough issues and come up with the best solutions and compromises, while still keeping your dream in mind.

Bringing it to life

 

Design is, for me, the interpretive process of piecing together all of your ideas. I create for you the floor plan and exterior elevations, which gives us a basis to start our discussions. We situate your furniture, revise room sizes, and finalize kitchen and bath layouts. We tweak the exterior until it fits your vision of home. Most importantly, the house is situated on the lot to conform to local setbacks, take advantage of the best views, and capture the best sunlight.

You're almost there.

 

Once we have determined the design and layout, I get to work on the construction blueprints. This final drawing set consists of fully dimensioned and noted floor plans, foundation plan, exterior elevations, window and door sizes, a wall section and site plan.  These construction blueprints are ready for permit application and construction and reflect a thoughtfully designed, structurally sound, energy efficient home.

Continued Design Support

 

Even when the project is in the hands of the contractor, my job isn’t complete. I consult with the truss supplier to ensure the roof and floor systems are properly engineered.  I’m available to answer questions, and enjoy stopping by the jobsite to see the construction progress and watch your dream become a reality.
