Housing Design and Architecture is a company created around the idea that beauty, functionality, comfort, and affordability should all play very important roles in the creation of a house. Our goal is to design and build high-quality and well functioning houses while still maintaining an affordable cost. The combination that we utilize, a registered architect and a seasoned energetic contractor, gives us a unique advantage when it comes to the quality and comfort of the product we provide. Whether it is small or large, or something in between, we can give you more value for your money. As our past clients will attest, we work to please and satisfy each and everyone of our customers.
Most construction companies focus on cost only rather than cost and function - a grave mistake when it comes to the overall quality, comfort, and live-ability of a product. Focusing only on the immediate cost leads to problems for homeowners down the road, and inevitably less comfort and therefore less satisfaction. Overly cheap and ineffective products must be replaced more often and usually lead to less savings especially when it comes to energy & utilities. And some of the products used by most builders are unable to keep you comfortable and happy as you age in place, or live for a time in your home. At Housing Design and Architecture, we aim to provide products that save money now, make you comfortable, and last into the future.
