Custom Architectural Design for Homes, Cottages and Businesses
Jim Bell and his team demystify the complexities and manage the entire process of designing and building a custom home/cottage, completing a renovation/addition, or renovating/expanding a business location. If you already have a builder in mind, Jim and his team can guide you through the architectural design process and provide a complete set of drawings for your chosen builder, or provide connections through our network of contractors and builders.
Listening to you
Time and time again clients say that Jim is a great listener who took the time to understand their vision. He makes it his number one priority to understand their needs, wants, vision and dreams. He doesn’t have a selection of floor plans on the shelf to pull out to try to fit the next client. You have spent hours pouring over Houzz, other websites and magazines and watching design shows to visualize your project and you want it to be unique. Jim starts with a blank page, a true understanding of what you need and want, over 30 years of experience and exceptional creativity to design a unique custom home just FOR YOU.
Our unique process
A deep family heritage in residential design and building informs Jim’s designs. His custom home, cottage and renovation designs aren’t only beautiful and functional but also efficient and cost-effective to construct. His proven architectural design process begins with the critical Project Programming phase which captures the client’s vision, along with the technical aspects of the site and a plan to define the overall parameters and feasibility of the project. Only then do Jim and his team begin to move through the remaining phases of the design process: Schematic Design, Design Development and Construction Documents.
