Custom Home Building Process

One Team - Architecture through Construction


Committed to Our Architecture-Construction Process

The journey is just as important as the destination – and we love a good journey.
We will guide you through every decision needed to transform tracing paper sketches into a home that will bring you a sense of joy and well-being every day.


We start one-on-one with you, looking at your design inspirations as well as reviewing your practical needs. From there, we’ll visit your current home to understand your personal taste and determine the project’s final scope.


After the initial discussion, we create project concepts. Each unique solution includes site development to best capture views and light, and floor plan options to maximize sightlines and flow between rooms.


We believe exteriors are as important as interiors so we’ll explore exterior proportion, roof lines and window locations as we refine the floor plans. Then we’ll visualize and tackle kitchen design, cabinetry selections, stone, tile, trim, plumbing and hardware.


Construction documents and project specifications are the culmination of our hard work and all of the design development decision-making. We use these documents to obtain a building permit so that construction of your home may begin.


We regularly meet at the job site with our construction team to answer any questions and address any concerns. With both design and build disciplines in-house we are able to anticipate and react in ways that expertly protect the budget and timeline.

We have processes that prioritize your input and offer guidance – with transparency – to economize, organize and strengthen your decision-making along the way.

On your project we will form a united architecture-construction partnership that includes our licensed architects, builders, project management team, long-standing subcontractors, suppliers, craftspeople and – most importantly – you.
