The custom home design process involves multiple project phases.
These project phases are made seamless, because the JPS team is equipped with the right mix of experience to walk you through the entire process from concept to the finishing touches. The process starts with schematic design, where we take your thoughts and ideas, and propose two to three potential rough plans to show you the relationship of the different spaces to each other, building proportions, flow and functionality. During this phase, we will also highlight any special features of the existing structure or surrounding areas. These concepts are reviewed with you to help you decide which option the JPS team should develop. Once the design is established, the JPS team moves into design development, where the design is further refined, including identifying room sizes, door and window locations, functional layout of cabinetry, plumbing and electrical needs and other design details. Following client approval, the JPS team will prepare a set of construction documents, including a review by a structural engineer. At the end of the construction document phase, the drawings are ready to be submitted for a building permit. Throughout the design process, the JPS team will submit applications to historic commissions, zoning boards and other applicable agencies if required for your project.
The JPS Design Team offers three dimensional (3D) renderings to help you envision the design with greater detail and clarity. These renderings help to visualize the relationship between the different rooms, lighting effects, shadows, and finish materials and will help you gain a greater understanding and appreciation for the finished project.
