From custom homes to small renovation projects we've prepared high quality architectural plans for the past 6 years. BCIN Certified and registered with the Ministry of Housing we'll ensure that your drawings have everything you need to obtain your permit. During the design process, we will meet with you and go over every detail so that your plans include all of information needed to see the project built the way you vision it. And now with SoftPlan 2012 we're looking to offer more 3D detailing and rendering to take things to the next level and further improve our service offering to our customers.

Well, after getting our approval at our virtual minor variance meeting I'm now finishing up the set of plans for this garage out in Carlisle. Need to be ready to submit for permit once the 20 day appeal period is over.

This is in a really interesting subdivision where all the homes are unique. The new garage in a very close match to the main home. Will feature a bonus loft and all of the ceilings will be sloping up from the main floor walls to allow for max ceiling height.

Stopped by Bevan Drive this morning to do a quick site visit and put up my big sign. Finally got a chance to meet Chris to tell him how great things look.

Went back to my roots today with changing up my visibility settings in my 3D to be similar to the structural frame software that I used at my first job out of school.

Really helped to review the roof structure with the builder over the phone to determine the best ways to track the loads through the building.

There's something about bright green....

What a great way to end the week. Was talking to Chris over at @bluestonehomes.design this evening about the Bevan build. He said everything worked out great with the trusses and things are going smoothly on site. Was even able to forward me some pictures of the crazy progress they've made in the past few days.

Next up, shingles and HVAC!

Well, I haven't been out to any job sites in a couple of months but thankfully I have a client over on Bevan Drive that's been keeping me posted on how things are moving along on his home.

Trusses are up and windows should be going in later this week. Nice to see things progressing, even if it's at a different pace.

Stay safe everyone.

Just finished permit plans for a new detached Cape Cod style Garage. Adding in a full shed dormer off the back provides so much potential for that loft space upstairs.

This project is also right down the road from me so it will be fun watching things come together once we have our permit.

Met with a client this morning that I designed this garage for a few years ago. This is the 3rd version of this same design that I've done in the area. It's neat to see how clients put their personal touch on things.

Now that it's completed, it's time to start working on plans for a second floor addition and main floor renovations on their home.

Glad the builder was able to get it framed up and shingled before the real nasty weather gets here.

I was in Upper Mountain Hamilton today so I had to go see a project that I completed this spring. Everything is finished except for some painting. This project included a Second Floor Addition as well as some interior alterations on the main floor. We used 18" deep pre-engineered joists to clear span the building so that the existing ceiling could remain in place. To me, the key in making a second floor addition look right, is a covered porch and a surrounding skirt.

During the design process we explored a few different versions of how the second floor addition could look plus a few different colour options. The use of 3D rendering paired with matching their preferred colour schemes worked great to help them visualize how things would look.

This is a Custom Renovation / Addition Project in Aldershot that I'm currently working on.

The customers have a really nice backyard with great privacy so lots of glazing was key to the design, to appreciate the outdoors. 10' ceilings in the Master Bedroom and Dressing Room are going to make this place really special.

So happy to see this project moving forward. Will be submitting for Zoning Clearance this week. Designs for this one started back in 2017 but then it was placed on hold.

This is a major renovation / addition in Burlington where we're tearing off the roof, re-designing the Main Floor, adding a Mudroom, Porch and Garage plus adding a New Second Floor .

I measured 3 houses in the past two days for additions and major renos.
When I saw these in the crawl space of the last one, it made me smile. Took me back to my first job out of college working for TrusJoist/Weyerhaeuser. These are the floors joists I was designing with back then. When they made the flanges with LVL and not spruce.

Engineered floors are the way to go, especially in custom homes and/or additions. They won't shrink like spruce lumber and designers can predict the floor performance with software to limit or eliminate bounce. Today, I still design my own pre-engineered wood products for my projects and co-ordinate the specifications on the plans for permit.

This is a project in Grimsby that I did back in 2018. The customer was looking at doing an exterior update to their home. I was hired to do 3D rendering to help visualize things and compare colours and trim details.
Finally drove by yesterday and snapped a couple of pictures of the finished work. I think it turned out pretty great.

It's great when you get to do a repeat of a project for a new customer because they drove past the original and want the same thing or similar. This is the third time this garage has been built now. Twice in Grimsby and once in Beamsville.

Have to save though that this one has the best view out of their loft windows! Looking forward to doing a similar look for their home reno.
