Our goal is to marry high-end, one-of-a-kind design with an intimate design experience by sitting down and diving deep into the specific needs of our clients. We’ve simplified the process making it easy to work with a floor-plan focused, design team from the comfort of your current home.
During this process we’ll draft the interior layout of your home, perfecting the space to fit your needs and budget. From there we’ll bring to life the exterior elevation that you’re envisioning. We’re ready to make a house your home!

They are construction drawings, which assume knowledge of common construction practices. They do not offer a “how to” guide for building houses. If you are not an experienced home builder, please work with a local building professional when using our plans.
Since codes vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, we cannot warrant that our plans will meet all codes in your area. We design our plans to meet the codes in our home area, Omaha, Nebraska. Variables like seismic and wind codes may require a locally licensed engineer to review some, or all, components in the structure of the plans. Some jurisdictions will require a seal from a locally licensed engineer or architect, in such cases you can purchase our plans and commission someone to review and seal the drawings.If you have any questions, please contact us, we are here to help!
