WHAT IS A BUILDING DESIGNER?
Most of the homes in Texas are designed by building designers rather than architects. That means we provide the drawings that become the "blueprints" from which a house is built. Here at Hobbs' Ink we recommend that you hire an engineer to design your foundation and preferably also to design and specify your framing. (We will, in most cases, provide you with a framing plan if required, but will not provide a foundation plan.) You may also decide to hire an interior designer to help you with finish selections. But, our plans, along with an engineered foundation plan, are all you need to get your home priced, permitted and built.
