This step is vital for establishing a strong partnership and ensuring that we’re on the same page from the very beginning.

During this phase, we work closely with you to turn your ideas into a detailed plan and architectural design. This includes selecting layouts, materials, and finishes. Often, this stage involves several revisions to ensure the design meets expectations and functionality needs.

The Planning & Design stage is where transform ideas into detailed, actionable blueprints and plans, focusing on aesthetics and practicality.

Once the design is finalized, the next step involves securing the necessary building permits from local authorities. This process ensures that the planned home meets all local building codes and regulations. It typically involves submitting detailed plans and waiting for approval before construction can begin.
