Have a little spare time during the holidays? It might be time to start your custom design project. Our initial customer questionnaire is full of questions that assist you in gathering information about your dream home. Devoting time in the initial “creation” phase greatly assists us in fully understanding what is important to YOU.

Keep in mind, Create-A-SunPlan often takes 4 to 12 months to complete. If you don’t have that much time, you may want to Adapt-A-SunPlan to meet your needs. Adapt-A-SunPlan follows a very different process and usually takes 2 to 4 months. In either case, winter is a good time to start the planning process. Typically, our lead time for starting any custom work can become very long in the spring and summer.

It might be time to re-read Chapter 5 – Custom Design Process, Architects and Options, in our book The Sun-Inspired House. The book evolved from the frequently asked questions that have been asked of us about passive solar, passive cooling, energy-efficiency, and green building by homeowners, builders, engineers, and architects over the last 20 years. It is a valuable resource and one that will set you on the right path to building your dream home.
