Additional Services

Direct Home Design is ready to walk you through the full home building process.

HOA Approval Assistance
Home Owners Associations have strict standards that must be considered before the design process begins. Providing your HOA guidelines during the preliminary design process enables us to design those standards into the home. Associations commonly require 2 sets of prints to be submitted and may request additional plan revisions to meet their specifications. We can research and implement all required standards, streamlining the approval process for your plan.

Historical Home Design Assistance
Historical Associations require strict adherence to exacting standards. These historical standards must be integrated during the preliminary design process to ensure compliance. Historical associations commonly require submission of 2 sets of prints and may request additional plan revisions in order to meet their specifications. We can research and implement all required standards, streamlining the approval process for your plan.

3D Color Rendering
For clients who wish to visualize their plan exterior, we provide a custom photo-realistic color rendering of your house with the finishes and colors that you are considering.

Cabinet Detail Assistance
This service is perfect for clients who desire quotes from multiple dealers or want to custom build their cabinetry. Because our designer is already familiar with your needs, we can provide specific information to make the space work best for you in function and aesthetic. Top views of cabinetry are already provided in your base plans. Printed elevation views specify overall style and details such as drawer placement, cabinet height, trim and custom cabinet accessories, which you can provide to your cabinet maker and builder.

Plan For Future Space in Attic

If you are interested in developing attic space at a later date, we can help you plan ahead. Attic space is prime real estate for a media room, bedroom, bathroom, man cave, craft area, secret room behind a bookcase or “play” space.

Blinds and Shutters Assistance
Our designer also has extensive experience with designing window treatments and helping clients find the best solution for their usage/privacy/lighting needs. We have contacts within the window treatment industry and are also able to offer our clients a detailed individualized proposal for high quality blinds and shutters at a very competitive price.

Outbuilding Design
Are you planning on building other structures on site? We can seamlessly integrate a storage building, extra garage, pool house, art studio, gazebo, spa or workout room into your current design and lot space.

Landscape Design
Whether it is required by your HOA or you just want a detailed plan for your landscape/hard-scape, we can assist you. We will artfully design your personal landscaping, sidewalks and walkways and provide documentation with a legend specifying types of plantings that work best for your property and is an extension of the overall aesthetic of your home.

"As-Built" Plans

“As-Built’s” are a set of plans that are revised to show what was “actually” built after any last minute on-site revisions. You will receive an updated set of documents in a storage tube for future reference.
