Design work has become a HUGE portion of our days here at VintageBD, especially recently. Â We have several clients that are in the early planning stages of their new homes and major renovations, and we have found a sweet spot to insert our expertise. Â By working with an architectâ€™s preliminary design Ken has the ability to give it a second opinion and often make suggestions that make the home more fluid and appealing both from a design standpoint and from a practical livability standpoint.
Working with existing structures to make an addition seamless and architecturally sound has become a strong point at VBD. Â Mediating between what the client wants to accomplish with their home with what is structurally possible, and making the two meet happily in the middle is a challenge we have not yet shied away from. Â Steve and Ken often start a design meeting by telling the client â€œYou can do absolutely anything you want, you just have to decide how you live.” Â Inside of any budget they have accomplished this balance of endless options and the clients wants and needs.
On top of wants and needs, our expertise as a builder in the current market gives us the ability to make suggestions of ways to improve your home to maximize value in your neighborhood. Â Market knowledge about what is expected out of a house of a certain size in a certain neighborhood prevents over improvements and/or under improvements that may negatively affect the value of your property.
This is the VintageBD edge – the “D”. Â It’s the expert in-house DESIGN that gives us the ability to work with our clients on an all encompassing level with their project.
