CUSTOM HOME DESIGN

DESIGN THE CUSTOM HOUSE OF YOUR DREAMS

THE CUSTOM HOME DESIGN PROCESS:

WHAT TO EXPECT

When working with individual customers to create a  custom home design, we take many factors into account. There are your individual factors, including your floor plan requirements and custom design desires, your architectural style preferences and your budget. We also consider your site parameters, such as neighborhood design requirements and limitations such as state and local building codes.

THE CUSTOM HOME DESIGN PROCESS:

WHAT TO BRING

The following documents and information will help us get off to a great start on your new custom house plans:

  • Survey of your property – While we can get started without it, a survey is extremely helpful and expedites the custom home design process
  • List of needs and wants – Take the time to think about what you want in your home design, what you need in your floor plans, and what would be nice to have in a custom home.
  • Clear idea of your budget – Having an amount in mind when we start can help us to identify what is possible within your budget.
  • Name and contact info for your chosen builder (if known) – If you have not yet selected a custom home builder, let us know. We have established relationships with multiple builders in the Northwest Florida area and can make recommendations upon request.
  • Pictures of custom houses, architectural elements and styles you like – Knowing what you like and what you’re envisioning for your custom-built house can help us to define your personal style. We suggest browsing through images of custom built homes from Houzz, Pinterest, or similar resources to find images you like.
