Building the Right Home for You

Building your own home is a major investment and is accompanied by lots of hard work and stressful moments. Many decisions go into the house-building process and making the wrong call can be costly and create delays. Sometimes people think hiring an architect for their project is more of a luxury, when in reality hiring an architect can save you time, stress, and money in the long run!

Before your consultation with an architect, creating a list of features you would like to include in the addition or renovation is a good practice. It is also good to consider what your budget is like and if you have any reference material on which you would like to base your design. Our architects will ensure that all of your needs are met and that the entire process goes as smoothly as possible.

  • What type of budget do I have?
  • What size do I want my home? How many floors? Do I want a basement?
  • What rooms do I want for each floor?  How many bedrooms do I need?
  • Do I want a large Master Suite? If so, is there anything specific I want included?
  • How much storage space do I want?
  • Are there certain aspects I want included in my kitchen?
  • What style would I like the exterior to be; contemporary, traditional, etc.?

A well-planned project is built far more efficiently. Plans are mapped out thoroughly on paper first, and changes to these designs are a lot easier than if they were happening when the construction is already underway. We have years of experience working with local builders and can provide suggestions on which firm may be best suited for your particular project. Working with us ensures that your project will go as smoothly as possible, and that your needs will always be in mind. Contact us today for a free consultation.
