What you want, need and ask for. Each design is as different as its owner. Our custom home designers at Carini Designs are in the business of transforming shelter into home. We start by building a working relationship with you — framed by communication and cemented by step-by-step satisfaction.
Whether it’s orienting your house to capture light in ways you love, or simply framing space for how you live, we know you’ll find designing with us inspirational.
You’re at the first step: checking us out. Your custom home designers should have architectural designs you love and a proven track record. The Carini Engineering Designs team has seasoned members with 25-30+ years of experience, a finger on the pulse of design trends, and a full grasp of matching your wants/needs with workable plans. Combine that with newer recruits with fresh eyes and ideas and you have a design team that’s dependable, dynamic and draws what’s right for you.
Once your job is scheduled with a signed contract and down payment, the design process commences. You may need to meet with the designer again to communicate details. We listen well. Out of town clients take care of the communication process via email or phone. The next thing you can expect from us is a preliminary design. Based on your input and our expertise, the preliminary design (including front elevation and floor plans) takes shape.
Any changes to the design are best made during this phase and we give you ample opportunity for review. You know how you live. We know design. Communication is key in our working relationship. Our custom home designers help you fit your house plan to your dreams, lot dimensions and budget requirements.
Our custom home designers convert your preliminaries into highly detailed construction documents. Final drawings include: floor plans, exterior elevations, foundation plan, building sections, roof plan and energy code compliance calculations. Architectural plans from Carini Designs build on a firm foundation of structural engineering skill and expert space optimization topped with attractive roof geometry. We love to answer all your questions and help you get comfortable with the process.
Some clients start the process with a builder, others hire one now. With completed, professionally prepared construction plans in hand, you’re ready for building permits and final construction quotes. Our custom home designers give you the plans to turn your dream home into reality.
