We always work closely with you to develop a floor plan you will love, ensuring we bring your vision perfectly to life. Remember, Home design is something you literally live with so make sure it is everything you have ever dreamed of and more. Working with One World Builders designing team is a great way to make sure you get every detail exactly right.
The first step in the process is to gather and analyze information and perform all the work necessary prior to actually designing your home. During this time we formulate a detailed “program” which defines your needs and objectives: function, size and relationship between spaces, character and image, and a host of other considerations that affect how you will live in your home. We analyze your site and determine the best placement of the house and spaces within to capture views and sunlight. During this stage we also establish the construction scope, budget and schedule.
Conceptual brainstorming and exploration define this portion of the design process. It begins with the creation of concept diagrams and rough sketches. During this time we determine the general layout, form and overall appearance of both the house and the site. Sketches, drawings and study models are prepared to help evaluate the ideas and concepts; and set the final direction for refining the design. Once the style, size, layout and character of the home and site are refined, we begin to design feature elements such as stairs, cabinetry, fireplaces and built-in furniture. Drawings are prepared that describe some of the important technical details. Plans, elevations and sections through the house are developed. At the end of this phase 70 to 80 percent of the design work will be complete.
Remember that while the information and decisions made in one of these phases / stages forms the basis of the subsequent stages, design is seldom a linear process. Instead, one typically moves back and forth between the phases, allowing ideas from more detailed designs to influence and modify the overall design direction previously established.
Construction documentation is the phase where the design is translated into the technical language of the contractor. Working drawings (blueprints) and specifications are prepared which define in detail all of the materials that are to be incorporated into the house, where they are to be located and how they are to be installed. Although this phase is primarily intended for working out the technical aspects of the project, some design work also takes place. In addition, light fixtures, plumbing fixtures, and finish materials (tile, carpet, paint colors, etc.) are selected.
At this point your home plans are completed, we prepare and deliver to you a complete set of construction drawings and specifications, that will contain all the necessary details for you to obtain building permits and for you to build your home!
