Custom Home Designs, Additions, Remodeling & More…

JD Designs specializes in the design of residential additions, interior remodeling, second story additions and master planning of remodeling an entire house. We also design custom residences. Our full-service designs include construction cost planning and working drawings suitable for planning department approval and building permits.

Through partnerships with a few select construction firms, JD Designs can offer our customers a comprehensive level of service - design/build - that includes the full process from initial design development through completion of construction. This team approach to remodeling and new home design and construction ensures continuity, quality and cost effectiveness.

Some specific benefits of design/build include:

  • Contractor is involved at conception stage
  • Decisions are made based on suitability rather than just cost
  • Team approach enables better scheduling
  • Project is designed around the budget from the start

The alternative, or "hard bid" approach, where plans are drawn up and then separate bids taken, often results in cost overruns and delays because the designer and contractor work independently.

JD Designs has received a number of awards and recognition at various local, state and national design competitions sponsored by national trade organizations and media sources such as Sunset Magazine and California Home and Design.
