Custom Home Designs
Most of our projects are custom. We design from the ground up. Listening to the customers, wants and needs are of the most importance. All we need are your pieces of the puzzle and then we can put them together. Remember we are designing YOUR home not ours. We have worked with some of the biggest and smallest builders in the area and are backed by our 25+ years in the Sarasota area; experience is key. Our design style is virtually anything, we are familiar with many constructions types.
Remodels / Additions
"When it comes to remodels, I believe in using as much of the existing structure as possible, as this can be a substantial cost saver for the homeowner." ~Jon Coulthurst, President While "home improvement" often refers to building projects that alter the structure of an existing home, it can also include improvements to lawns, gardens, and outdoor structures, such as gazebos and garages.
As-Built Drawings / Field Measuring
As-built drawings represent a record of the completed works, literally 'as built'. These are based upon the working drawings and updated to reflect any changes or alterations undertaken during construction or manufacture. Field measuring is sometimes required in order to verify or obtain certain required dimensions necessary for the plans to be drawn. We personally come out to your site and take these measurements.
Throughout the design process drawings may change based upon the choices of the client. When the design is finished the complete set of drawings will be prepared for use by the construction company.
3D Designs & Renderings
We understand that not all clients can readily "see" what their design ideas and final home will look like, and so we provide a service to help bring those flat two-dimensional plans to life, with 3D drawings. We even have the ability to "render" the 3D Designs into photo-realistic views, thus showing you essentially exactly what your home with look like before the foundation is even layed!
3D Interiors / Virtual Walk-Thru
The software is so powerful that we can even create animated walk-throughs of your future home if you wish. No longer do you have to simply try to imagine your home in your mind, now you can see it come to life in 3D!
Residential Interior Design
Residential interior design is the design of the of private residences involving fixtures to furniture, color palettes, and accessories. As this is very specific for individual situations, the needs and wants of the individual are paramount. The interior designer may work on the project from the initial planning stage or may work on the remodeling of an existing structure. It is often a very involved process that takes months to fine-tune and create a space with the vision of the client.
Plotting & Printing
Throughout the process of preliminary plans plotted plans will be required. The completed set of construction plans will require multiple full sets of plots.
On all of our projects we use a Florida Licensed Structural Engineer, when required.
