Custom Home Design

Designing a custom home is a multi-step process that involves collaboration between the
homeowner, architect, and builder. The process begins with the homeowner’s vision and goals for
their new home, which are then translated into a design by the architect. The design is then
reviewed and refined by the homeowner, architect, engineer, and builder before construction
begins.

The first step in the custom home design process is the initial consultation. During this meeting,
the homeowner will meet with JLA design to discuss their vision and goals for their new home.
The architect will ask questions about the homeowner’s lifestyle, design preferences, and budget.
include detailed drawings and specifications that are used by the builder to construct the home.
The architect and engineer spend a significant amount of time creating CDs. This is to ensure the
contractor has all of the information needed and to minimize the probability of change orders
during construction. The architect works closely with engineers to develop the structural, civil
When construction documents have been reviewed, stamped and signed by all parties, they are
transmitted to the owner and General Contractor (GC). Typically, the GCwill obtain any necessary
permits and approvals from the local building department. The building department will have
their own review period, after CDs have been submitted. If the building department approves the
drawings, construction can begin! The builder will begin to construct the home according to the
design and construction documents. The homeowner will work closely with the builder to make
any necessary changes or modifications during the construction process. The builder will also
The next step is the conceptual design phase. The architect will use the information gathered
during the initial consultation to create initial design concepts for the homeowner’s new home.
These concepts may be in the form of hand sketches, rough computer models, bubble diagrams,
block diagrams and other tools. This phase allows the information about the owners wants and
needs to begin to crystallize into recognizable building

Following conceptual design is the design development phase. The design is advanced in this
phase and will begin to include custom house plans, elevations, and a site plan. The homeowner
will review the design and provide feedback to the architect, who will make revisions as needed.
The builder may also review the design and provide feedback on the feasibility and cost of the
