Residential design & drafting services, engineering coordination and building permit processing, are the services we offer to homeowners, contractors, and real estate investors.
Residential Design Service
Our drafting services approach allows you to tweak your design at later stages while still maintaining the integrity of your drawings. We offer you an efficient method for integrating your home design or addition into your site as well as with your existing dwelling. What that means for you is that you are offered more control over your design because we are better able to maintain accuracy and efficiency of the documentation.
Sometimes drafting services are not enough because plans must be stamped and signed by an architect or structural engineer when one or more of the following conditions occur,
- A one-storied building exceeds $40,000 value,
- A two-story building exceeds $35,000 value,
- The principal structural members are either reinforced concrete or structural steel, or when
- You need retaining walls five feet or more in height.
Owner-Built Design, LLC works with licensed engineers to meet this need and we will handle all the coordination for the structural design per the engineering design requirements.
For most people, this is an area of residential design and drafting services they prefer to avoid. Let Owner-Built Designs, LLC handle this along with the design and drafting of your home or addition and you can forget about the red tape of permit processing and use your time more wisely for selecting materials and other project focused activity.
