Rubicon Home Design is located in northern Virginia and serves the northern, central and Shenandoah Valley regions of Virginia as well as the DC metro area of Maryland and the eastern panhandle of West Virginia.
We have over 30 years of experience in the home design industry, both as “in house” designers for regional and national home builders as well as for residential architectural firms. Having had experience working for home builders gives us a unique perspective to home design that most other home-design firms lack. We have spent many hours on job sites and have seen, first hand, many of the problems and situations that builders face. We provide a full range of home design services for the home builder as well as individuals looking to build their dream home or make an addition to their existing home.
We will deliver what we promise, when we promise it. We will not make excuses. We will keep you informed on the progress of your project. We will treat you fairly and with respect.
We will never sacrifice quality in the work that we do for you.
We value your business and will do whatever it takes to keep you happy.
Value is not getting a home design and set of working drawings for the least amount of money, it is getting more for your money than you expect. That is what we deliver.
We design homes that are unique and exciting. But good design is more than just a handsome façade and a functional and exciting floor plan. If the house is difficult to build, does not use materials economically or the construction drawings are not easily interpreted by the contractors, it does not meet our standards of “good design”. Good design includes the construction process as well as the marketability of the home.
We always strive for excellence. We provide construction documents that are second to none in completeness, clarity, build-ability and detailing. We know construction. We know the building codes. We know how to put together a complete set of working drawings that are the most user-friendly of any in the industry.
Service is our main goal. We can provide on-site help and guidance for any of your construction issues. If you wish, we will meet with your construction managers, subcontractors and building officials in order to quickly resolve any of your construction problems, thus minimizing costly delays.
Most design firms love to provide builders with new designs and working drawings but when the builder wants to make changes to an existing design, they are not as eager to respond. We realize that changes are an inevitable part of the building process and will not put this work at the bottom of our priority list. If you need changes made to your plans, we will do everything we can to do the work in a time frame that meets your needs.
Our construction documents have historically been some of the best and most complete in the industry and seldom have problems with the plan review department. Though building permit and inspection issues are an unfortunate reality in the industry, our goal is to resolve any plan review or inspection issues that you may have with 24 hours. If we cannot meet this goal, we will keep you up-to-date daily on our efforts in resolving the problem. Service is our main goal.
