At Timber Ridge Craftsmen, no two home plans are exactly alike. We believe that every home should be as unique and individualistic as your own fingerprint. That’s why we never publish house plans.
We design and build homes with your goals, needs, and budget in mind. As we design your custom home, we’ll take the time to craft a home that suits your needs and is adapted organically to your homesite.
Benefits of Custom Home Design
Navigate a comfortable process
Creating a custom floor plan with our team is an easy, comfortable process. We lead guided discussions which focus on your goals, wants, and needs — and then synthesize these into your plan.
Bring your vision to life
Our process brings those dry plan-view pages to life, with three-dimensional renderings of color, depth, texture, and photos of actual landscape views. Often, our clients have aha moments, saying things like “Of course, I see it! Why isn’t all design done this way?”
With 3D computer modeling tools, we can even show designed rooms with your furniture. We place the software’s camera anywhere inside or outside the house, capturing views from well-planned windows and enabling you to see “curb appeal” views from any angle. You can assess the look and feel of interior spaces before anything is ever built. We help you visualize roof and siding textures, patterns, and colors — comparing and contrasting color palettes for easier decision-making.
Complement your life & lifestyle
Designing and building is your opportunity to fit your new home to your life and lifestyle. Too often houses are made the other way around, where people must adapt to and accept features added with someone else in mind. Your new home should feel like it was made for you.
Accent beautiful surroundings
Any home in the greater Smith Mountain Lake region should highlight the area’s natural beauty. By opting for a custom home plan, you can incorporate features which frame special views and highlight nearby focal points. You can even orient your home around the sun for greater energy efficiency and more natural living cycles. Features like window heights and overhangs, porches, decks, arbors, and trellises can all be crafted to invite and shade seasonal sunlight.
Stay within your budget
Creating plans in our design-build process is affordable. We provide more information and more flexible adaptation to goals and site needs, for less cost than some “customized” plan book designs.
