1. The Creative Phase
1. After learning how you live in your home, we draft the first floor plan.
Our Creative Director, Rodney, has a one-on-one conversation with you what your family really needs, wants, and has to have. This includes questions about your life, schedules, hobbies, and more. He then talks with you about your design preferences, budget, and prospective construction timeframe. How you answer those questions forms the foundation of your new home on paper.
2. A 2D floor plan for your custom home is developed by our designers and architects.
After your chat with Rodney, our design team gets to work by sharpening the sketch he drew up right before front of your eyes. We specific attention to both the design fundamentals and artistic details you discussed. Once this digital blueprint is complete, it will showcase everything you want to see in your home.
3. We assemble a virtual 3D model of your new home.
Our design experts use state-of-the-art 3D rendering technology to let you “walk through” your custom home before construction begins. We want to ensure that you love everything about your custom home: from the bedrooms and shared living spaces to the bathrooms, outdoor living space, and even the kitchen sink.
