ARCH + GABLE HOME DESIGN

Your Space. Reimagined.

I design residential and commercial spaces that are comfortable, personal and interesting. Great interior design is great art, reflecting who you are in ways you never imagined. My unique perspective, grounded in both art and architecture, reflects an artist’s eye toward color and materials and a strong sense of space and form. I am an artist, a designer, a home entertainer and I am here to make your space better than imagined.

ABOUT ME

Summer Wedermyer
Owner, Arch and Gable Home Design, LLC

Untitled

 I graduated from KU Art and Design school with a degree in Interior Design and have spent the last 15 years involved in various aspects of home design, renovation, and the construction industry. My passion is restoring old homes because I understand the delicate balance between the character defining features and modern conveniences. Ready to start your home project?

If you've never worked with a designer.....

The Design Process:


Step One: Consultation and Project Questionaire:  Review goals and discuss how you envision the space. We also establish the budget. 


2. I will measure and draw the space as is and then start laying out the different options taking into account your requirements and wishlist.  These are professional sketches and we are only looking at function at this stage. We can meet in person or exchange comments via email or DesignFiles.


3. Choose the final layout and develop the design even further, really drilling down to the functional details like cabinetry function and lighting plans. 


4. Move on to the fun stuff, selecting finishes and fixtures includes lighting, paint, backsplash, plumbing fixtures, countertops, cabinetry finishes, hardware, furnishings, etc. (optional)


5. After all the decisions are made, I spend some time on construction documents for potential contractors. Basically these are instructions on how all of it will come together. (Final Design Payment due after completion of step 5)


6. I will hold a 'trade day' to meet on site with potential general contractors so I can walk them through the project in person. 


7. Review Contractor estimates and help identify any discrepancies with you. (if needed)


8. The design process is pretty much done except for checking in with you and the contractor while you're under construction.

Provide a general description of the items below and introduce the services you offer. Click on the text box to edit the content.

Blueprints

Blueprints are detailed technical drawings or plans that provide a visual representation of a structure. They typically include precise measurements, dimensions, and specifications, as well as annotations and symbols to convey specific information about the design. Blueprints are commonly used in fields such as architecture, engineering, construction, manufacturing, and various other industries where precise planning and communication of design concepts are crucial. They serve as a means of conveying information to builders, contractors, engineers, and other stakeholders involved in the construction or production process. Blueprints provide a comprehensive overview of a project, including floor plans, elevations, sections, and details specific to the project's requirements. 

Home Plans

Home plans, also known as house plans or floor plans, are detailed architectural drawings that depict the layout, design, and dimensions of a residential structure. These plans provide a visual representation of how the rooms, spaces, and components of a home are organized and interconnected. Home plans typically include various elements, such as:

Floor Layout: This shows the arrangement of rooms and spaces on each floor level. It includes walls, doors, windows, and major features like stairs, hallways, and entries.

Room Designations: Each room or area is labeled and often accompanied by dimensions. Common designations include bedrooms, bathrooms, living rooms, dining areas, kitchens, utility rooms, and garages.

Measurements: Home plans provide measurements that indicate the dimensions of rooms, walls, and spaces. These measurements help determine the size and scale of the various components of the home.

Structural Details: The plans may include information about the structural elements, such as load-bearing walls, beams, columns, and foundations. This information is important for construction and ensuring the stability of the building.

Electrical and Plumbing Layouts: Home plans may include symbols or notations indicating the location of electrical outlets, switches, lighting fixtures, and plumbing fixtures like sinks, toilets, and showers. These layouts assist in the installation of electrical and plumbing systems.

Exterior Features: Depending on the level of detail, home plans may illustrate exterior elements such as doors, windows, roofing, landscaping, and outdoor living areas like patios or decks.

Home plans serve as a guide for architects, contractors, and builders during the construction process. They help ensure that the desired design and functionality of a home are realized and that the project complies with local building codes and regulations. Additionally, home plans are often used by homeowners to visualize and communicate their ideas to professionals involved in the construction or renovation process. Regenerate response

As Built and Addition Plans

I can help you create a floor plan for your home addition. To start, I need some information about your existing home and the desired addition. Please provide the following details:

Dimensions: Please provide the overall dimensions of your existing home, including the length and width.

Purpose of the addition: Let me know the purpose of the addition. Are you looking to add a new bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, living room, or something else? Also, specify the number of rooms or the square footage you have in mind.

Location: Specify where you would like the addition to be located in relation to your existing home. For example, "adjacent to the east side of the house" or "behind the living room."

Design preferences: If you have any specific design preferences, such as an open-concept layout or specific architectural style, please mention them.

Special features: If there are any special features you would like to include, such as a fireplace, large windows, or a patio, let me know.

With this information, I'll be able to create a floor plan for your home addition.
