FAQ Section

Common Home Design Questions

How much does designing a custom home cost?

 

Our prices start at $1.85/Sqft; however, depending on the complexity and scope of the project, the price per square foot may increase.

How long does the design process take?

 

We like to work at our client’s pace and on average most of our projects take roughly 90 days from proposal to construction doc delivery.

During the design process, most of the holdups come during the revision phases, as decisions need to be made and elements of the design need to be signed off on. There are big decisions to be made during the design process and we allow all the time needed to make those decisions.

Once revisions have been finalized, and plans have been signed off on, we work diligently to finalize and deliver your construction documents as efficiently as possible.

How many revisions do I get?

 

Our plans are fully custom, and we want you to love the house that we design for you, that’s why we offer a set of revisions during each phase of the project.

Additional sets of revisions are possible but will incur additional charges.

Can you design homes outside of Louisiana?

 

Yes, from New York to Washington to Texas, we’ve had the pleasure of working with clients from across the country.

Are you involved during the construction phase?

 

All supervision during the construction phase is handled by your builder; however, we do communicate with them as needed to help them ensure the home is built to your design specifications.

What documents do you need to start?

 

In order to deliver buildable construction documents, you will need to provide us with accurate plot/site information in the form of a land survey and construction benchmarks (i.e property size, building setbacks, elevation requirements, site utilities, soil information, etc).

Will you help during our subdivision review

 

Yes, we have designed homes in most of the major subdivisions throughout Louisiana, and we are familiar with most of their requirements.

As a courtesy to you, we will submit all the necessary documents to your subdivision review committee, so that your plans are approved as quickly as possible.
