We understand that each home is a personal design with personal desires to suit an individual lifestyle and living needs. We work with you to create a concept and design that suits your lifestyle and your budget.

Considering a renovation or an addition to your home?

You’ll find fresh new ideas with us. We pride ourselves in helping our clients realize their dreams realistically and in style. We also ensure your renovation construction conforms to provincial building codes and best building practices.

We also design INSULATED CONCRETE FORM (ICF) Homes.  Insulating Concrete Forms (ICFs) are hollow blocks or panels made of plastic foam (Styrofoam) that construction crews stack into the shape of the exterior walls of a home.  The combination of concrete, steel, and foam creates a very strong and energy-efficient structure.

We can take your dream from concept to design at a price you can afford with a name you can trust.

The Process

The multi-step custom design process begins with an  initial free consultation.  After meeting we begin the conceptual phase, proceed to the design development and finally the construction/permit drawing stage.

1.  Initial consultation:

Free consultation to define the scope of the project .  We meet with clients listen to their wants and needs, clients can present photos, plans of desired designs to help in the process

2.  Conceptual Phase and Design:

After the initial meeting we develop preliminary plans and front elevations for client review.  We then meet again to discuss the plans, elevations and possible revisions at clients request.  Once the client accepts the plan and elevations we proceed with the Design.   We now develop detailed plans and elevations as agreed upon. Once plans are completed, we sit with client for a final review. We now move on to the next phase.

3.  Construction/Permit Plans:

In this final phase we finalize the  plans, elevations  with construction notes, sections etc.. Along with the 4 sets of signed construction plans, we also give the client a signed Schedule 1 form.  Schedule 1 is the designers BCIN registered information which is required from the Ontario Ministry of Housing and all other forms required by the municipality, to be issued with permit plans.

Please note the time frame for this process varies with each individual client.
