Our design process includes the personal services that encourage its client’s ideas and comments for a final design that truly fits their visions and lifestyle. Our team has extensive experience in renovation designs to bring an older style to a new modernized 2000 look, or match a specific existing historic style. GDS can meet the design challenge of matching the construction of an existing complicated roof, framing, or foundations design. We will bring the custom design elements that will make your renovation/addition add beauty, value and functionality to your existing home.

Our design process starts with a free visual inspection of the existing home, this also includes a free initial consultation and estimate to begin the design of the client’s visions, ideas, and economics of their project. The following design process includes more inspections with the designer on site taking photos and measurements of the project. GDS also schedules several more client/designer meetings and third party engineering reviews to further develop their home renovation design to final permit ready drawings. We have extensive experience in the interior renovation designs of modern kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms, living rooms, storage area, etc.

GDS also has experience with renovations/additions in the challenging coastal hurricane prone areas. We are certified in “Design for High Wind” from the Simpson Strong-tie Training Center.
