“We cannot say enough positive things about our experience working with J. Taylor Designs. Jamie has extensive knowledge of both architecture & interior design and an organic understanding of how the two fit together. Jamie puts in the extra time to really understand your vision. She herself visually lives in the space. Her design intuition had her two steps ahead of us throughout the process, anticipating our needs in regards to functionality. We feel fortunate that she designed our home and would highly recommend her. In addition, she is an absolute pleasure to work with!”

“We began the process of building our dream house in 2012 and started with basic ideas of a plan we liked. We were referred to Jamie Taylor and she has created exactly what we wanted. Her work is exceptional. Through the process of getting plans drawn, she was always approachable and friendly and did her work in a timely manner. As we are nearing the end of the building process, it has been amazing to watch something on paper come to life and be exactly what we dreamed. We would highly recommend Jamie Taylor to anyone considering building their home.”

Our Process


Whether you’re seeking a home for your growing family or a place to relax and entertain guests, your home should reflect your distinct style and lifestyle. During our initial consultation, we get to know every little need and desire, identify any frustrations you have with your existing home, learn about how you live in your home on a daily basis, and explore options to maximize your living space within your budget to suit your distinct lifestyle and personality.


Once we’ve identified what you want out of your living space, we draft a preliminary floor plan and exterior concepts for your review. We go back to the drawing board as many times as it takes until you are completely satisfied with the flow and design style and are ready to start building. At this point, we finalize the construction drawings, foundations, roof layouts and framing details before putting the finishing touches on your home design.


Building the right team around your new home construction or remodel is essential to ensure everyone is on the same page and the construction process goes as smoothly and seamlessly as possible. Starting in the design development phase, we consult with the builder, structural engineers, and materials suppliers to make sure we are able to not only design a beautiful home for our clients, but to also make sure we are staying with their budget.
