In the Discovery Phase, we learn as much about your ideas, vision, and goals as possible. We seek input from you through meetings, a detailed questionnaire, and review of any images, plans or photos you may have collected. Getting to know you is key to creating a house plan that suits your life and style.
Home Design from Vision to Reality
Working with a homeowner to fulfill dreams and to create a new home design is one of our most rewarding types of work. Our commitment is to be a good listener, a creative designer, and a partner with you in all aspects of a residential project whether it is a set of new custom house plans, a design for an addition, or a remodeling.
While our specialty is rehabilitation of historic structures, our broad base of experience includes not only rehabilitation and remodeling of older homes, but also custom new home design in a variety of styles ranging from traditional to contemporary, and from small to large. We also design guesthouses, studios, garages, barns, rural retreats and urban lofts. For rehabilitation in historic homes, Frazier Associates provides assistance with historic rehabilitation tax credits. Click Here to read more about Historic Tax Credit services.
As in all of our architecture projects, understanding our client’s needs and goals is key to a successful design. Each aspect of our process is designed to enhance communication, create value, and stay true to your goals for the project- creating a home designed especially for you.
Discover, Create, Document & Build!
These are the four-phases we partner with you to create a residential home design or a home renovation.
Once we have an understanding of your goals and aesthetic, the Creative Phase begins. We hit the drawing board to develop several options for floor plans and massing. Client input is a critical part of this phase, as options are reviewed and house plans are refined to achieve your vision.
The next step is the Documentation Phase, where architectural drawings and construction documents are produced to ensure that the design and details can be implemented as planned.
Finally, your dream becomes reality in the Building Phase. Frazier Associates can assist in selecting contractors, obtaining bids, construction administration, and maintaining communication between all parties throughout the building process. Our goal is to ensure that the final product in a home design project meets your dreams and expectations.
