Have an idea for a custom home design? Found a home design that you like, but needs modifications to add your personal touch?
Nittany Design can work with you to design the home of your dreams that meets your exact specifications.
Benefits of Nittany Design’s Home/Residential Design Services:
Unique Design/Construction Combo Background. We don’t just have a background in design, we also have an extensive construction background. In fact, Chris Fiene and his wife have designed and built their own home, in which they currently reside. We have been through the entire process including design, cost estimating, permitting, serving as our own general contractors, hiring and coordinating subcontractors, budgeting, inspections, and even performing a lot of the work ourselves. We know exactly what it takes to build the home of your dreams. We have walked the walk. And we are passionate about helping others to reach that goal.
No Project Size Limit. From a simple deck design to a home addition or completely new home; we are experienced in all sizes of projects and welcome them all.
Direct Contact with Engineer. Clients speak and work directly with the registered professional engineer for the duration of the project. This direct contact makes us unique, and allows for professional results with a quick turnaround. We will also work directly with your builder to ensure a seamless design/build process.
Signature Drawings. Our signature drawings are a combination of many years of experience of drafting everything from minute cabinetry details to many-storied buildings. We use AutoCAD computer-aided drafting software and have perfected an elegant, meaningful format for our drawings. There is a reason one of our clients is an exclusive, high-end residential cabinet maker with projects exceeding $500,000.00 in cabinetry alone. Our drawings stand out in the pack, and will help you to easily see specific details of your project for yourself. Our signature drawings are more than lines on paper, they are a true vision of what your home will be.
Licensed, Registered Professional Engineer’s Stamp. Depending on the project and the locale, a professional engineer’s stamp may be required for the design, which we can provide.
Design Team Building. We work with the best professional engineers in the area, and are happy to help you put together a team of engineers to perform your site and MEP design in conjunction with our home design.
What does a typical home design project involve?
Our home/residential design services generally include:
- Conducting a site visit and collaborative design meeting with the owner.
- Using AutoCAD design software to design the building/addition.
- Working continually with the client to ensure the design complies with their vision and revising as needed.
- Providing complete construction documents in compliance with the IRC (International Residential Code).
- Providing building permit and zoning assistance if requested.
Nittany Design is uniquely poised to help make your dream home a reality. Whether it be thru an addition, a new deck or a completely new home; your dream awaits, and we can help you reach it.
