Additions and New Homes

Every room of your home is like a member of your family: a unique expression that fits into the “package.” Living spaces design is important, because it affects the “flow” of your home, including attics, basements, dining and living rooms, family rooms, and bedrooms (whether they’re used as bedrooms or not). You live in your home dynamically. As you move around, you see the transitions from a different perspective. Diane Plesset can show you what you will be experiencing, using virtual-reality views from multiple perspectives. Her goal is to listen to you, inform you about all of your options, and create plans for an environment that satisfies your needs.
