Custom Design Process


Designing your Dream Home… Is as easy as One, Two, Three

Many Californians have an image of how they would like their home to appear but need a way to bring their ideas to life. That’s where we can help. Established in 2003, House Arte has the experience and technical knowledge to make your dream home come true with our custom design process. The custom design process is as easy as One, Two, Three.

One: Get Together

Visit with us, during a complimentary consultation, to share your thoughts, your pictures, and your vision of the house you have been dreaming about!

After this initial visit, for a nominal fee, we can provide you with an initial 3D concept, which gives you the chance to visualize your ideas, with all the furnishings, materials, and features you shared with us during our first visit..

Two: Refine the Design

As we move forward, we will finalize the floor plan, and create interior and exterior elevation concepts for your approval. This usually takes between 2 to 4 revisions.

The design will be fitted to your lot with 3D views from all angles so that you can see exactly what your Dream Home will look like, both inside and out!

Three: Complete Drawings

Site, foundation, floor, framing, roof, cross sections, lighting, electrical, details, and structural engineering, if required, and Title 24 plans are prepared for submittal and issuance of permits.

We will be with you throughout the entire design process, refining your plan and coordinating with other design professionals, i.e. civil and structural engineers, general contractors, fire suppression consultants, energy consultants, and the local building department.

We can also meet with the Homeowner’s Association (HOA) and Architectural Review Committee (ARC) to ensure that your designs are approved.

Any revisions required by the building department are made at no additional cost to you. Then your plans are ready for construction!

As Construction progresses, we are available for consultation, as the need arises. We would love to see your project come together and are so excited to see the final product of our collaboration, together!
