Just choose your home style, we’ll prepare the full set of plans for you!
A contemporary home design might sport a traditional exterior with Craftsman touches and a modern open floor plan with the master bedroom on the main level. Airy outdoor living spaces, open layouts, and large windows which aid in indoor/outdoor flow and energy efficiency are elements that are typically highlighted in both modern and contemporary house designs.
The Spanish home style is marked by the prodigious use of smooth plaster (stucco) wall and chimney finishes, low-pitched clay tile, shed, or flat roofs, and terracotta or cast concrete ornaments. Other characteristics typically include small porches or balconies, Roman or semi-circular arcades and fenestration, wood casement or tall, double–hung windows, canvas awnings, and decorative iron trim.
Log Home and Log Cabin
Modern log home plans are designed in a variety of styles using wood logs as the primary building component. Gable roofs and rectilinear designs are characteristic, since odd angles and complicated outlines are expensive and difficult to achieve. Outdoor living, whether simple or extravagant, is also frequently seen in log home floor plans.
Mediterranean house plans draw inspiration from Moorish, Italian, and Spanish architecture. Mediterranean style homes usually have stucco or plaster exteriors with shallow red tile roofs that create shady overhangs. Along with large windows and exposed beams, Mediterranean style homes include patios or loggias to catch breezes.
Modern homes present rectangular exteriors, flat or slanted rooflines, and super straight lines. Large expanses of glass (windows, doors, etc) often appear in modern house plans and help to aid in energy efficiency as well as indoor/outdoor flow. These clean, ornamentation-free house plans often sport a monochromatic color scheme and stand in stark contrast to a more traditional design, like a red brick colonial.
Ranch floor plans are single story, patio-oriented homes with shallow gable roofs. Modern ranch house plans combine open layouts and easy indoor-outdoor living. Board-and-batten, shingles, and stucco are characteristic sidings for ranch house plans. Ranch house plans usually rest on slab foundations, which help link house and lot. That said, some ranch house designs feature a basement which can be used as storage, recreation, etc.
Cape Cod House
A Cape Cod house is a low, broad, single-story frame building with a moderately steep pitched gabled roof, a large central chimney, and very little ornamentation. It features a central front door flanked by multi-paned windows. The space above the 1st floor was often left unfinished, with or without windows on the gable ends.
Country house style overlaps with cottage and Farmhouse styles, though Country homes tend to be larger than cottages and make more expressive use of wood for porch posts, siding, and trim. Today’s Country style houses emphasize a woodsy simplicity with a central door, evenly spaced windows, a front and/or a rear porch or wrap-around veranda, and a gabled roof.
Colonial houses often feature a salt box shape and are built in wood or brick. Colonial style homes may also sport classical details, such as columned or pedimented porticoes and multi-pane double-hung windows with shutters. Inside a colonial house you’ll typically discover a center stair hall with living room on one side, dining room on the other, and kitchen at the rear.
European house plans have an Old World or European look that’s not specific to any one style like Spanish or Mediterranean or French. European style home plans often use brick or stone and include high steeply pitched roofs, tall windows often with shutters, and traditional ornamental details like pediments and keystones. Arched openings are another common feature of European homes.
Farmhouses or farm houses are as varied as the regional farms they once presided over, but usually include gabled roofs and generous porches at front or back or as wrap-around verandas. Farmhouse floor plans are often organized around a spacious eat-in kitchen. Farmhouse floor plans are like Country plans in their emphasis on woodsy informality.
Traditional houses contain characteristics of older home styles including columns, gables and dormers. If you have a family with young kids, a traditional 2 story house plan might be perfect for you, as two story designs allow for a clear separation of spaces (e.g. after the kids go to sleep upstairs, the parents can watch TV or entertain guests on the main level).
Southwestern houses reflect a rich history of Colonial Spanish and Native American styles and are usually one story with flat roofs, covered porches, and round log ceiling beams. Walls of Southwestern style homes are often stucco or stone and have overhangs or trellises to provide shade from the desert sun. Built-in seating — also called “bancos” — beehive fireplaces, and door-less showers are distinctive features.
Southern home plans are usually built of wood or brick with pitched or gabled roofs that often have dormers. Southern style house plans incorporate classical features like columns, pediments, and shutters and some designs have elaborate porticoes and cornices recalling aspects of pre-Civil War plantation architecture. To make living in the humid climates of the South as comfortable as possible, Southern houses make use of tall ceilings and large front porches to catch breezes.
Vacation houses are generally designed to serve as a secondary home or recreational residence perfect for mini-vacations, weekend getaways, or a hunting and fishing retreat. These plans are usually small and accommodating while offering some of the comforts of home. Most vacation homes are designed to fit lots typical of vacation homes, such as a mountain side or coastal lot, while blending with the natural landscape and making the most of the surrounding view.
Classical house designs, also called neoclassical house designs, commonly boast large footprints, lots of space, and grandiose details. Classically inspired house designs reference the architecture of ancient Greece and Rome with columns, pediments and ornament such as egg-and-dart molding.
With natural materials, wide porches, and (often) open-concept layouts, Craftsman home plans feel contemporary and relaxed, with timeless curb appeal. Modern houses often borrow elements of Craftsman style homes to create a look that’s both new and timeless.
Prairie style house plans are defined by strong horizontal lines. Prairie Style homes appear to grow out of the ground, with a low pitched, overhanging hipped or gable roof, windows set in groups, and an entrance that is typically secluded. Prairie Style homes feature wide open floor plans.
Beach House / Coastal House
Beach houses often feature chic outdoor living spaces, such as roomy wraparound porches, sun decks, verandas, and more to take advantage of waterfront views and perfect weather.
If you love the charm of Craftsman house plans and are working with a small lot, a bungalow house plan might be your best bet. Ideal for small urban or narrow lots.
Cabin houses come in many styles and configurations, from classic log homes to contemporary cottages. Cabin floor plans emphasize casual indoor-outdoor living with generous porches and open kitchens.
Tudor houses typically have tall gable roofs, heavy dark diagonal or vertical beams set into light colored plaster, and a patterned stone or brick chimney. Tudor home plans are typically one and a half to two stories with second-floor cladding that contrasts with the siding on the first floor.
A treehouse is a platform or building constructed around, next to or among the trunk or branches of one or more mature trees while above ground level. Treehouses can be used for recreation, workspace, habitation, a hangout space and observation.
Victorian house plans are ornate with towers, turrets, verandas and multiple rooms for different functions often in expressively worked wood or stone or a combination of both. Victorians come in all shapes and sizes.
Cottage houses are informal and woodsy, evoking a picturesque storybook charm. Cottage style homes have vertical board-and-batten, shingle, or stucco walls, gable roofs, balconies, small porches, and bay windows.
The main goal during this phase is to figure out how much space you require and how you’d like to use and arrange that space? That means the “program of requirements.”
We will work closely with you to determine your space needs, as well as how they can be arranged and used most efficiently. Additionally, we will start to look at applicable zoning, building code, and other regulatory requirements, and will work with you to develop a project schedule that meets your needs.
In the case of reusing an existing building: Carefully document and evaluate present building and its conditions. Determine what can be reused, what must be discarded, what must be rebuilt.
At the end of this page, you’ll see produced some information that lists the types of spaces and square footage of each.
Our designer takes your Program of Requirements and begins the process of translating it into an efficient building design.
Schematic design is conceptual in nature, so it doesn’t go into much detail yet. Our design professional will begin to lay out the site, the interior spaces, and develop basic exterior designs.
The deliverables that the designer will prepare in this phase include preliminary drawings such as floor plans, elevations, sections and a site plan if applicable. You may also see some sketches or you could ask your designer to do some computer renderings (usually this would be another add-on service) to help you visualize and get a sense of how the spaces will look and feel. For the most part, the design won’t yet include things like what types of materials will be used, so if you do get sketches or renderings, keep in mind that what they’re showing isn’t necessarily final.
The building’s exterior will be more fully designed (if applicable), interior layouts will be completed, room sizes are finalized, and most materials are selected.
In this phase, our designer advances the design significantly. The main goal of this phase is to define and develop the important aspects of the project. The exterior, interior layouts, room sizes, and materials are more fully designed. The designers will further develop the HVAC, plumbing, fire sprinkler and electrical systems.
The deliverable in this phase is a much more detailed set of drawings than the schematic phase (it looks like they’re done, but they’re not) and (most likely) a specification book, which can be thought of as the written instructions for the drawings. The specification book will specify the materials that have been selected, and provide things like installation instructions, quality control requirements, and other technical information.
This phase basically takes the design development drawings and specifications and fills in the details that will enable a contractor to build your project.
All necessary technical information is finalized, and the final set of drawings and specifications will include the information that’s required in order to obtain a building permit from whichever local authority has jurisdiction (eg the city, county, etc.).
The deliverable in this phase is a complete set of drawings and specifications, referred to as the Construction Documents, which will get submitted for permit and given to contractors to develop bids/quotes for the work.
In the permitting process, if the authority has questions, requires additional information, or requests changes/corrections to the drawings, the design team will take care of it.
This phase involves the design team monitoring the construction to verify that it is happening in accordance with the Construction Documents they prepared.
The frequency of the designer’s visits to the site during construction varies widely; it could be daily, weekly, or monthly, depending on the project and your needs. But it is important to have someone keeping an eye on things, so that you end up with the space you’re expecting. They will take photos and write field reports to document the progress and will also verify that the contractor’s billings accurately reflect the amount of work that they’ve done.
The design team will also work with the contractor to answer their questions, verify that the materials the contractor is using are correct, issue formal modifications and corrections to the Construction Documents, and to solve problems that arise in the field – there are always unforeseen issues to resolve.
When you enter some spaces, they stir your senses and resonate with you. That’s the beauty of architecture, it brings out your hidden senses. Our goal at Meee Design Services is to create places that inspire and stand the test of time. We believe every design task deserves such an attention, because we value our clients precious time which must be spent in a beautiful and practical environment. In every design task, large or small, we see the potential to create solutions that are beautiful and environmentally responsible.
We at Meee design Services work painstakingly to satisfy desired style in a timely fashion while adhering to local codes and standards. Being on-time is accomplished through clearly understanding clients’ needs at the beginning and working with them closely along the way to turn their concept into reality.
Since all our projects are being done by BIM software it’s very cost effective as any unexpected changes at any stage from schematic design to structural design to MEP design can be implemented without interfering others.
We are not only proud of being able to handle projects of all sizes, but also, we make sure you don’t get back to us when you head for the city permit. Our record is proof of our word.
Although our prime focus is in California, we also provide national services as we have designers working with different standards and can provide designs for different sectors.
We deliver thoughtful and successful projects for our clients. Our design Thinking to every project is to Turn Challenges into Opportunities.
