  • I have worked with ArcDesign on two home renovation projects; ranging from a master bathroom/closet addition to an extensive major home remodel. They have been wonderful to work with! Everyone in their office is professional, easy to communicate with, and architecturally talented! They are always quick to respond to any questions or requests, and truly care about bringing our vision to life exactly as we want it. The designer meticulously designed our dream home. His attention to detail and our desires really showed during the entire process. We highly recommend them!

  • I was very impressed with Arc Design. Randy worked with me till we got everything that I wanted in the plan for my mother-in-law apartment. He was very patient and listened to everything that I said and all of my ideas and it turned out exactly how I wanted it. He had great ideas that I didn't think of and I am looking forward to the build. I highly recommend this firm.

How It Works
What are the steps to this process? Who do I hire? A contractor? An architect? A home designer or draftsman? Let us help you alleviate the guesswork and steer you in the right direction to getting your project kicked off right.
Write a list of all your needs and wants. Don't hold back. You can always scale down as you discover what's possible during the design phase.

For example:

Turn the lanai into your new home office.
Add on a bedroom for overnight guests.
Add a 2nd floor master bedroom.
What's that? You want to vault the ceiling?
Finally build the mother of all man-caves!
Are you with me here? There are so many possibilities, and inspiration is all around.
Feel free to view some of our projects on Houzz for design inspiration by going to

Now, list the important details of what
features you want in the project area(s).

In a new Laundry: Sink, W/D, Folding Table, hanging rack, built-in ironing, cabinets for storage, etc.

Master Bath: Double sink, large walk-in shower, toilet room, linen closet, etc.

Collect images from the internet and magazines and even take some of your own photos should you find real-life design inspiration wherever you happen to be. has a never-ending supply of design idea photos.

Make notes about what you like in each photo to ensure the designer understands what you want.

Ready to Buy Design Plans
Here at ArcDesign, we've worked with many individuals, families, and building contractors to create a wide array of home styles over the years. We're open to all levels of client input regarding the styles of their new home builds and we certainly don't mind being given full reign to design something beautiful and functional according to the needs of our clients. But for some, streamlining the process by not reinventing the wheel and simply choosing from some designs that we've already created, is most ideal. If this is the route that you'd like to take, then this will be the place to view some wonderful options and make the selection that is right for you.

PLEASE NOTE: These are just design plans and do not include the signed and sealed engineered permit drawings that are submitted to building departments. However, we can provide permit drawings at an additional cost and we work closely with several Structural Engineers to get your project ready for submission. Clicking on each image transports you to our ready-made-design-plans website for more information on each home design plan and our processes.

This is a new service that ArcDesign is implementing. Though sparse to start, we ask for your patience as we build our Plans Portal to provide you with a varied selection of home styles for the city life, the burbs, beachside, and more. Each new design will be offered as soon as it becomes available.
