 Everyone needs help


Whether you're looking for your dream home, or just trying to add a little more living space to your current home we are here to help. We have been helping clients for over thirty-five years. The benefit of being a small residential design firm means you received personal professional attention, not merely handed-off to a junior associate.


We have handled projects from large complicated custom homes down to a laundry room addition. No project is to large or small not to enlist the services of a designer.  We'd be happy to help you with your design needs.


More goes into a successful design than mere lines on paper, and not all designers have the same level of knowledge, experience, and expertise. Mistakes made in the beginning mean more dollars at the end. So the dollar you saved in design cost may end up costing you thousands extra.


With our experience in residential design, building construction, civil engineering and site planning we know which issues must be checked first before taking on a project. Why have drawings prepared only to find out the zoning regulations won't let you build. How will wetland issues affect your project? What about the Hurricane Wind Codes? If you builder has a question about your drawings how long will he have to wait for an answer from your designer? How long will his crew stand around while the clock ticks on? How long will this delay your project? It's not just how you want your kitchen laid out, or the number of bedrooms, it's all of these issues brought together that make for a successful project. We'd rather find out potential problems in the beginning that may stop your project than have you with a set of construction drawings you can't use.


While we are not registered architects, we have studied architecture, space planning, building construction and civil/structural engineering with over 35 years of successful design experience behind us. The fact we are not registered architects means we can not design a shopping center or hospital for you. If you're looking for a custom home design, remodel, or addition then you're at the right place. You may want to check out our Frequently Asked Questions page to learn more about the difference between an architect and a residential designer.


We are residential design specialists experienced at custom new homes, additions, complete renovations, garages, decks and even pool houses having worked on projects in Fall River, Swansea, Somerset, Swansea, Westport, Dartmouth, Dighton, Quincy, Hull, Somerset, Freetown, Lakeville, Acushnet, New Bedford, Fairhaven, Rochester, Mattapoisett, Marion, Wareham, Bourne, Taunton, Bridgewater, Dennis, Mashpee, Plymouth, Plympton, Osterville, Centerville, Orleans and Harwich. We have completed numerous projects in Rhode Island as well, and of course many in Florida. We don't produce blueprints, we prepare construction drawings and documents, drawings that are highly detailed to help your builder save time and money with the construction of your project. We are always concerned about saving our clients money. Our designs include High Wind Construction details that save you money, not only in design but construction costs as well.
