Design Services

Your ideas: This is what makes a home unique. Frequently, we find that people we work with feel "trapped" inside the lines of 'cookie cutter' house plans, or drawings they hired done (and are not not sure they like). 

Shane's approach to design is different. He will work with you to tease out your best ideas and get them on paper. You'll imagine your daily life in your new home, and how to make it look and feel exactly the way you want.

While Shane has an actual architect he can pull in if necessary, in 99% of the cases, he and the home owner come up with a comprehensive, detailed, original plan -- saving you thousands on architects, engineers, and designers, and leaving you more money to spend on your home's finishes.

Consultation Services

So you want to build your own house? Fantastic! Many people do, and we're here to help. Shane can provide any level of aid to DIY-ers, from on-site consults to providing men on the job to do difficult or time consuming tasks that the client may need a hand with.  The level of involvement is completely up to you.

Small Projects Welcome!

Just because we can build an entire house for you doesn't mean that we don't welcome your small projects, as well! We do additions, kitchen and bathroom renovations, remodels, and any number of other small projects -- just ask.

And, if there is something we can't do, we always know someone who can. We're happy to give you a complimentary referral to our partners and affiliates when we're booked or if there is a project we can't take on.
