Shoot for the moon and if you miss you will still be among the stars. - Les Brown
Serving Sacramento since 1981.


The City of Sacramento selected our firm in 2007 to provide model house plans for purchase by owners and developers in the Oak Park neighborhood, which is adjacent to the Curtis Park neighborhood. The program was created to streamline the process for development of high quality single family homes in this older historic neighborhood and redevelopment area. The plans designed by our firm met and exceeded the design standards of the Oak Park Design Review District as well as the City’s other targeted Infill and Redevelopment Areas. These permit-ready house plans were catered to lots that are difficult to develop due to their size constraints, approximately 40’ x 120’.  In its initial year we “sold” eight plans to private home owners and small developers.  In some cases they were very small lots and the plans needed to be revised to accommodate these even smaller lots.  Our relationship with the planning and design staff of the City of Sacramento facilitated this process.  Although the initial program did not require the plans to exceed title 24, we consciously designed them  with energy efficiency in mind and as a result exceed the standards.
