Imagine the possibilities if you have Unlimited Options.
At Unlimited Options, we understand that you have many options for a home design professional to customize your pre-drawn home design, or provide custom home design services. The key to successfully selecting your designer is to ask some of the following questions:
Does your home design professional -
participate in, and is a member of, the American Institute of Building Design (AIBD)?
have access to, and is associated with, national trend-setting designs?
participate in continuing education related to design and building codes through the International Code Council (ICC)
restructure your existing design impacted by the architectural modifications being made to your home design?
update the framing aspects of the existing design impacted by the architectural modifications being made to your home design?
update the entire plan set impacted by the architectural modifications being made to your home design, versus adding conflicting addendum pages to your home design?
provide optional Next Step services like material lists to assist you through the building process if needed?
Here at UO, our answer is “YES” to all the above – and more.
UO specializes in custom home designs and modifications to pre-drawn home plans. We partner with people involved throughout the home building process:
the nation’s top residential designers, architects, and engineers
national home plan marketing/publishing firms
We provide customized home design and drafting services to fulfill the needs and desires of all the stakeholders in each project. As mentioned, UO also provides Next Step services to our clients, to ensure they are prepared for the building permit and construction process.
Our partners have trusted us with their most valuable assets – their designs and their clients. Our commitment is to help ensure satisfaction for each individual and group involved all through the process. We are particularly dedicated to help each home owner fulfill their dream of building the house that will be their family’s home for many years to come. Our team of designers make it their mission to bring those dreams to life.
