NEW PLANS

Custom Home Design Have you been sifting through magazines and design sites for floor plans and nothing seems to fit just right? Then you need a custom home design. Through ideas, imagery and sketches, Tracy’s Custom Homes walks customers through the design process, implementing layout, functionality and architectural detail to achieve the perfect floor plan. Our goal is to create a custom home that reflects our customers vision and lifestyle. We listen to you and we understand that the house needs to fit your needs, not the other way around. New concepts are generated and presented in 3D, allowing our customers to experience their new home as they walk through the floor plan. Unlike other design firms, we don’t want you to second guess your decision making by worrying about how many fees your racking up, we do not charge for changes throughout the design process. We charge a flat rate per sqft under roof, that’s it. Each home is uniquely designed with excellence.

REMODELS

Remodels

Ready to give one of your Rooms a complete makeover or are you ready to add on that Game Room you always desired, but not sure how it is going to work with your existing roof? We can give advice on how to do it as well as show you what it will look like once complete, before you ever call a contractor. We will take measurements of your existing house, create an “As-Built” 3-D model while locating important plumbing fixtures and then generate a conceptual plan to show you what some of your options are for the remodel or new addition. You may decide to move forward with the project or you may decide to completely change directions based on how it looks or approximate costs associated with the project. In the end, you will have spent a minimum amount of money to see “What-If” without tearing into your sheetrock.

Process (3-6 weeks)

1. Initial Meeting ($250 deposit due if you choose to continue after meeting)

2. Complete measurements are taken of existing house where remodel is to take place

3. Generate “As-Built” drawings for existing house in current condition

4. Present Preliminary Remodel Plan (1-2 weeks) (Billing by the hour due)

6. Generate Construction Dwgs (4-5 days)

HVAC DESIGN

Efficient Design based on Manual J Calculations

Have you ever lived in a house where temperature varied room to room and during the winter, there always seemed to be a draft? Do you want your NEW house to perform that way? Many builders and HVAC contractors still use the old rule of thumb, 1 ton of heating and air conditioning per 350 sqft of living area, and when it doubt oversize it. With today’s improved building science and the generation of higher quality windows and doors and spray foam insulation, that rule of thumb can lead to long lasting issues with your new house, including excessive moisture content and a breeding ground for mold. We use a leading software tool to assist us in the creation of a specific HVAC design for your new home. We take into account the type, qty and location of your windows and doors, as well as which direction your house faces and how tall your ceilings to calculate the sizes of your duct runs and the required tonnage.

With fully encapsulated attics using open cell foam, many times we see the requirements change to 1 ton of heating and air conditioning per 850 sqft of living area. Less than half the old tonnage required. Don’t let your builder or HVAC installer put a system in your house with out first running the Manual J numbers. If you need assistance with this, we would be happy to share our knowledge with you.
