DRAFTING & DESIGN – Design to Build

Your Home, Designed for Your Life…
Build it right, now

Specialized in Working With What You Already Have
Consultations- With or without completed plans, and on the construction site or off. Design advice and guidance for custom homes and remodel plans at all stages of design and construction.
This Service is a Good Fit for You and your construction project if…
  • You are working with a builder, drafter, or architect and would like another set of eyes on the plans, to make sure every item on your Needs list and Wish list is planned for in the best way possible.

  • You worry about finding a drafter who’s also a great designer. A Floor Plan Page Only will give you the great design and then finding a drafter to draw the full plans becomes a much easier decision- and you can hand over the beginning of the project.

  • Construction is going well, but you’re concerned about making the right choices for built-in elements, door placement, lighting, paint, and other finishes.

  • You’re searching for an existing home for sale, but are not finding exactly what you want. A house that is “close” could be modified to be just what you want.

  • You’re working through the plans, or are in the build stage, but communication with your architect or builder leaves you confused. “Translating” the plans and decisions to you will allow for educated decisions.
There is no time like the present to lend a “designer’s eye” to your project. Let’s bring out the best version of your home so you have the best experience in your home.

My years of experience  with interior design along with designing and drafting plans for custom homes, remodels, and additions mean that I have a full understanding of every part of the process. I speak the language of your architect/drafter and your general contractor.

Design your home Right… Now. I look forward to being a part of creating a home you’ll love.
Your Home, Designed for Your Life.

Options and Pricing

As with all my services, I am here for you throughout your project. Photos, text messages, phone calls, or emails with a quick question after our Consultation, etc. are a standard part of the services I offer. I happily support you as you move through your project at any point after our appointment and will talk to your contractor or drafter as well.

In-Person Consultation… $125 per hour with prorated additional time after the second hour, at the same appointment
For many remodel projects, one hour is plenty of time to determine your needs for a remodel or room addition. For a custom home, this will be the starting point of creating the design. If you’re in the middle of having plans drafted by an architect or drafter and don’t feel you’re quite getting the design you wanted, we can talk through the plans and problem solve for function, space planning around existing furniture, overall design appeal, etc. Sometimes, we won’t know what needs adjusting until we are looking at the plans together. When we’re done, you’ll have the noted plans with a written, prioritized Action Plan to work from.

Floor Plan Design Only… Quote provided after initial consultation
Design your home with “the designer’s eye” on your side, and ensure that your major investment is protected with function, and timeless style. Our time together will be spent making sure you have thought about every need for your home. Once complete, the floor plan can be printed and/or sent to the drafter of your choice.
Pricing works as follows:

  • Initial pricing is based on a square footage estimate for your changes
  • Payment is 75% at the signing of the contract, with balance due at the time the floor plan is complete.
  • Final payment adjustment, if needed, will be charged or credited at the completion of the project, based on final square footage
  • I am available to the drafter/contractors for questions throughout the drafting and construction process.
