Affordable Custom Architectural Design Firm

Venture Home Design is a custom design firm which offers affordable design and drafting services utilizing Revit, AutoCAD, and other drafting software. We also offer dry-in materials packages derived from the construction drawings after we finalize them with you. As a family-owned business, we understand what it takes to maximize budgets and successfully design and build a home that meets your needs and matches your dreams.

Our architectural design services including drafting, home planning, conceptual sketches, massing models, construction drawings, site plans, etc. We have over 18 years of drafting experience and have worked extensively as a master builder and licensed general contractor since 1997. Our son also brings a new level of expertise as a classically trained architect fresh from an art academy, holding the highest GPA in his class.

Dryin material packages are a very popular choice for homeowners that for which we have designed. Having the material costs and quantities gathered early in the planning process helps with budgeting the project and also saves the builder and homeowner time and headaches. This is a home that we designed in 2023 that is currently under construction in a remote location near White Sulphur Springs, Montana.

The material package for this home (basically everything visible in on this custom home under construction) was derived from the final construction drawings and in cooperation and coordination with the general contractor and owner’s input.

Venture Home Design plans don’t just look great, they are very functional to build from and bid from, saving time in the planning of your home or project. Many details are included in my standard designs such as exterior siding, exterior door and window schedules, exterior siding details like directionality, soffit and fascia details, log or timber accents, railing, decking, etc. Dry-in packages can also include these materials.

Frustrated dealing with Home Owner’s Associations? The best avenue is to not waste money with predrawn “canned” plans purchased off the internet and to instead purchase a design contract and let us work through the HOA requirements. Several pages at times must be added to satisfy the HOA design demands. Having help navigating that process is a moral booter.

Plans can be designed from napkin sketches, ideas gathered from you, or selected derived from ideas garnered from our large portfolio of existing plans.
