Custom Home Design
Putting Dreams Into Designs
Custom home design is largely about problem solving before we start to build.
When thinking about building a new home, clients usually know what they THINK they want after having looked at many plans online, considering home they’ve actually lived in, visited, or seen at some point.
However, it is common for clients to say, “It was perfect, BUT it just didn’t have (fill in the blank)….” The kitchen may have been too small or too large; maybe there weren’t enough bedrooms or bathrooms; OR maybe there wasn’t enough closet space. The list of imperfections often goes on for as long as people have time to think out loud.
Effective custom home design can ensure the absolute best outcome.
Typically I like to start with an interview with the client, then create a drawing that is close to what they have described. I start with the basic layout, and then design from that basic foundation (pun intended!). In the “Custom Home Department,” the sky is the limit; there is no house exactly like the last one OR the next one.
Many home builders don’t like the challenges that come with the custom process, but at Eby’s Drafting and Design, we love it! The process of defining the initial idea, then refining it until it’s ready to become a reality, is the most fun part of what we do!
