Begin at the Beginning


From your list of wishes the planning begins in earnest.

The decision to construct a custom built home can come after months if not years of dreaming, planning, saving, and sacrifice. What on the surface suggested smooth sailing once that decision had been made is just the first in a long litany of decisions to follow that can suddenly seem all consuming and paralyzing beyond comprehension. We call this “First Stage Panic” and we are well acquainted with its challenges.

Our 40 years in the business has taught us that the most effective tactical countermeasure to the initial anxiety of design development is often best relieved not with complicated plans and blueprints but more decidedly with a low tech, tried-and-true method.  Borrowed from a simpler past we suggest beginning with the much less intimidating wish list

That wrap around porch on the house on Maple Dr. that caught your eye and captured your heart becomes a focal point that you can’t imagine your new home lacking. Or maybe your heart’s passion lies in a large farm house style kitchen reminiscent of childhood memories with its inviting warmth but still equipped with all the modern conveniences. Or will it be the special sewing nook that has a place for everything, and everything in it’s place.  Whether it be a man cave, media room, music room, or conservatory, they all merit inclusion on your list of wishes. Its limits are only dictated only by the expanse of your vision.  It is your map on the road from possibilities to dream completion.  And together, we will get you there on the straightest, most expeditious path with a simple but well-charted course.

From your list of wishes the planning begins in earnest. Together, as custodial partners in your dream we will carefully and realistically begin to incorporate each critical and defining element of your new home into a manageable plan for design implementation. What seemed at first an overwhelming task becomes far less burdensome and far more reassuring when broken down.  As champion and trustee of your dream second only to yours, we confidently rest our considerable reputation on not just meeting your expectations but exceeding them far beyond whatever you dared dream possible.
