Crafting Your Ideal Home

At Inouye Design, we believe that your home should be a reflection of your personal style and aspirations. Our custom design service is more than just creating a house; it’s about bringing to life a space that resonates with your way of living, your preferences, and your dreams. Each home we design is a unique journey, a collaboration between your vision and our expertise.

With years of experience in crafting luxury custom homes, we understand that the process is deeply personal and immensely important. That’s why we approach every project with a blend of creativity, technical innovation, and meticulous attention to detail. From the initial concept to the final touches, our team is dedicated to ensuring that every aspect of your home is perfect, down to the smallest detail.

We invite you to explore our portfolio to see the range and depth of our work, and imagine what we can create together for you.

Our Process

1. Programming 

Client requirements – We start by understanding your wants and needs, making each custom home uniquely yours.

Site requirements – Our designs maximize the potential of your site, considering views, topography, vegetation, and local styles.

2. Design

Driven by your and the site’s needs, we begin with preliminary floor plans. These evolve through your feedback into detailed schematics, followed by a 3D model for comprehensive visualization of your project.

3. Working Drawings

Our detailed drawings, essential for bidding, permits, and construction, include everything from structural details to electrical layouts. We collaborate with engineers for a thorough structural review.

4. Bidding & Permit Approval

With the design finalized, we move to construction. Regular on-site meetings ensure alignment with your vision, and design observation can be arranged for quality assurance.

5. Construction Process

The build begins, overseen by our team to ensure every detail aligns with the working drawings and specifications. On-site meetings and optional job observation ensure the highest standard of construction.
