Homeowners and Contractors Services

Lakeside Architecture also provides drafting services for homeowners and contractors who need  help laying their project out or revising purchased home plans. This is generally for projects not requiring sealed drawings for submission to the local municipality. 


We will help you realize your dream of remodeling or renovating a kitchen or bathroom, or creating a bedroom addition, whatever your thoughts and dreams are we can put them to paper for you.  We can provide drawings and sketches to help homeowners get consistent pricing from contractors.  We can also help contractors express their ideas to their homeowner client and their subcontractors.
