Custom Home Building Process

One Team - Architecture through Construction

DISTINCTIVE DESIGN + BUILD OF NORTH SHORE CUSTOM HOMES

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.

PRE-DESIGN

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.

SCHEMATIC DESIGN

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.

DESIGN DEVELOPMENT

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 DEVELOPMENT

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.

CONSTRUCTION ADMINISTRATION

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.
