Our Process


From concept creation to permit-ready blueprints, our streamlined process makes planning a pleasure. Clear communication is vital to a successful project, which is why we encourage open dialogue throughout, beginning with our client discovery session.

We’ll start with a complimentary consultation to get to know you and your design goals, discuss budgets and timelines, and answer any questions. From these discussions, we’ll create a detailed project proposal.

After sign-on and project approval, the concept design phase begins. Our team will work through each floor plan with you, starting with the main floor, then the upper level(s) and finally the basement.

Once the floor plans are approved, we’ll work with you to create a front elevation, then the rear one and, finally, all remaining elevations.

When these concept designs for floor plans and elevations are approved, we’ll wrap up the project by preparing your working drawings (blueprint copies) for you or your builder to submit for permit approval.

Sound easy? We make sure it is!
Let’s unlock all the design possibilities.

  • 1. What does it cost to design a home?
    This is the most common question but it’s not easily answered without fully understanding your project. Home location and size are the two main factors in determining price. Once we know these, and any other details you feel might help, we’ll be happy to provide a quote. Feel free to request one; we’re a friendly bunch.
  • 2. Are you able to help outside of Canada?
    Yes! We can and do work with clients anywhere in the world.
  • 3. How long does it take?
    In total, we estimate each custom design takes an average of 5 to 6 months. This is based on years of experience working with hundreds of clients. Much depends on the speed of client feedback throughout the process and, since our clients are often very busy people, this can, understandably, impact timelines.
  • 4. Who will I be working with?
    A dedicated project lead will work closely with you throughout the entire process, alongside several members of our stellar drafting and design team. We find having several professionals working on your project maximizes the creative possibilities and produces the absolute best results.
