A Solid Reputation Built on Creative Home Design

Caddworks is a residential design and drafting service, providing creative home design development and reliable permit drawings for custom homes, production homes, additions and renovations. We provide our service to individual homeowners as well as to home builders, renovation contractors and real estate developers. Our team of residential designers and draftsmen are dedicated to making each project a success, knowing that every project done well leads to our continued success through referrals.

Our design process begins by effectively communicating with our client. Obtaining a clear understanding of the client’s design objectives and criteria is a vital starting point for any project. Our systematic progression of simple design drawings that evolve into more elaborate and detailed drawings is achieved by means of interactive design meetings, sketching, and several stages of progress drawings generated utilizing AutoCAD CAD software.

Each step of the process involves our active listening and careful interpretation of the client’s requirements, while incorporating many years of experience in understanding homebuilding technology, conventions, codes and standards.

Many of our clients have purchased home plans from the internet or have assembled photographs and examples of homes they admire portions of. Caddworks will refine and/or mature these existing plan ideas into a set of house plans that incorporate all the desired features and aesthetics while incorporating appropriate construction methodologies, local building conventions, building code compliance, and desired construction materials and products. Our licensed structural engineer consultant assists us in assuring the structural integrity, constructability and code compliance of your project.

The geographical areas in Maryland that we service regularly are Frederick County, Montgomery County, Washington County, Carroll County, Howard County, Anne Arundel County, Baltimore County and Prince Georges County. We have also completed several projects in Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Washington, DC. On rare occasions we’ve had the opportunity to follow our clients to other states such as North Carolina and even the Riviera Maya in Mexico.

    Caddworks has developed custom home designs for a wide variety of architectural styles, sizes and construction methodologies. The process may begin with merely spoken design criteria and objectives; or the Client may have already sketched a conceptual design and assembled photographic design examples from magazines. Often times our Clients have purchased plans from a plan library services that require significant modifications in design, code compliance and construction methodology.

    Whatever the starting point , Caddworks will “coach” the process of a custom home design through several stages; beginning with relatively simple drawings, then systematically developing the design and drawings until a constructible set of drawings reflecting the Clients' objectives is achieved.

    Our company objective is to maintain a strong reputation for “listening” to and communicating well with our clients; providing appropriate, creative design solutions that recognize the clients' objectives; and preparing dependable, “buildable” permit/construction drawings; all while maintaining competitive fees for our work.

    Details Matter

    True competency in design and drafting requires more than just the obvious credentials. Understanding the client's objectives and interpreting them into a buildable design requires active listening, a thoughtful process and certainly an "aim-to-please" attitude.
