It is exciting and passionate to design and build a new home, just for you to your tastes and specifications. We are here for you at every step, to guide you, to create amazing space for you, and to manage the experience.
Our first step will be to meet with you and define your program. This meeting explores your likes and dislikes, your requirements, and relationships of spaces. We will develop and refine your program as we proceed. We will prepare the master plan, showing the location of the the main house, garage, driveway and entrance, and outdoor living areas and ancillary structures. We will be mindful of Sun Patterns and during design will prepare Sun Studies. We will collaborate with your surveyor or civil engineer to review the features and boundaries of the lot. We will review our plan with you in detail. We will create the Landscape Plan as part of Site and Master Plan.
We will next present conceptual designs for your home. The schematic design phase is an evolutionary process with your active participation. We meet, design floor plans and create exterior elevations, offering you options. We borrow elements from each design and sketch during our meetings. The chosen design might be an amalgamation with elements from different sketches. We refine your desired space allocations, and the relationships of those spaces to one another.
Following your approval of the Schematic Design, Mitchell Wall will commence with design development. This process includes development of Construction Details; selection of Architectural Products and Materials; and establishing conformance with Building Codes. As part of the design process we will “build’ 3D Renders and Computer Massing Studies. These tools enable our clients to fully understand their project. As requested, we will build an actual model.
Structural and Civil Engineering services will be required. We will incorporate their work into our Construction Documents. We will work with Landscape Designers on your behalf. We create the Landscape Plan and work with Landscape Designers for the selection of plant materials and the implementation of the Design. If you choose to work with an outside interior designer, then we will work closely with them and create your home to your desires and specifications. Or you can work with our Interior Designers, who are also professionally trained Architects. We will coordinate with your kitchen and closet designers.
We are your representative during bidding and negotiation. We will provide clarification, and work with their bidders to make sure that all are bidding on the same information and decisions.
We are your representatives during construction. We will make periodic field inspections during the construction of your home and ensure your home is being constructed to your specifications. Lastly, we will review your builder’s requests for payments on your behalf.
We are with you at every step, as much or as little as you like. We can simply create the design and construction documents and disappear in a poof! Or we can be by your side from inception to the day you move into your beautiful new home. You just decide and let us know.
Our custom homes are designed and built to be tailored perfectly for your unique lifestyle.

We are always striving to evolve in our work. When your space needs an evolution of its own, we bring that new vision to life.
