At KLM it is our job to draw you the exact house that you want. Sometimes it is hard for people to communicate what it is that they want or sometimes they just don't even know what they want themselves, luckily we are here to help! Usually upon first meeting with home and/or home plan clients we like to listen to their ideas and ask them to show us pictures of homes and plans that they like. A tool that everyone can use to help us in this process is HOUZZ idea books! This way people can scroll through HOUZZ's vast collection of interior and exterior photos and save things that they like to help us shape their project. We encourage prospective clients to start one immediately and put notes on all pictures about what you like and do not like. This helps us narrow the length of time a normal custom set of plans would take to produce! While we hope to also build our home plan clients projects for them, as it is the purpose of our company, this is not a requirement, we will still be happy to design you just a set of plans if that is what you would like!
Here at KLM we use a combination of many tools to get the plans and project done in a timely manner while properly communicating and working with the client. The first and most important tool is our design software. This software is like basically constructing a model of the house while drawing it, this takes many steps out of the drawing process in the name of efficiency. While working, this program will notify you when the designer has an update for you to look at and the plan will arrive directly to an app that is downloaded on the device of your choosing. This allows you to draw directly on the plan set, add notes, and use a measuring tool to check all the sizes of the rooms. All changes and mark-ups will be sent directly to our designer when he comes to work the next morning. This again increases efficiency because it cuts down on the amount of in person meetings that need to happen throughout the design process. We also employ a program called Lumion that our designer uses to make the 3D house rendering look very lifelike so you can see almost exactly what the house and space will feel like before we even begin construction! If you would like to review some of our work or just get some ideas for your project please check out our previous plan gallery link below!
We have various design consultants available for your use. We will set design appointments for you with our cabinet, lighting, tile, and plumbing showrooms so that you can speak with experts in each of their respective fields.
If designing your own plans sounds too overwhelming or you just need some place to start then you need to head on over to our KLM Plans Section. These are designs that we have done that aren't exclusive to any customer and are available for purchase!
