For homeowners and commercial property owners alike, the entire process of getting a remodel or new construction can often get overwhelming! Why worry though when you have Design Everest to help you at every step along the way, from start to finish!


As-built: If the As-built plan of your current building is not available with you, you may need to get it done through a site visit by an Architect. This is to understand the current site conditions and to provide you realistic ideas by evaluating your needs and city/county requirements for the Addition or Remodel to be done in your house.

Drafting and Architectural plans: Whether your objective is for a New Custom Home, Addition, Remodel, or anything else which requires a structural rearrangement, you will need Architectural plans in the form of a proper Architectural Permit Set. This is required before the start of the engineering activities.
