Your Custom Home Design Specialist in Miami, FL

When it comes to designing a custom home, many people can be overwhelmed by the amount of choices they’re given. It can be extremely difficult to fully articulate the vision you have of your dream home. That’s why Paul Pergakis is willing to work with you extensively to help you develop an understanding of your goals and preferences before we start the home design and construction process. 

When starting the custom home design process, you’ll start with an initial consultation with Paul Pergakis to get a feel for your lifestyle needs. You’ll tell us some of your ideas and hopes for your new home. It helps to have ideas, pictures, and notes ready. As well as that, we work with you so that you can choose the specific location that you’d like to build your custom home.

When the location is chosen and the goals are set, we’ll review some examples of homes and ideas to fit your budget, and from there present some schematic design drawings. Once you’ve found a home design plan that you’re 100% on board with, we can move on to surveying and more specific selections such as which type of countertops you’d like in your kitchen to help you acquire the look and feel you’re hoping to get out of your custom home.

Finally, after the approval and pre-construction activities such as securing financing and acquiring building permits, we can finalize the contract and begin the construction of your own custom home design!
