7 steps to building your dream home

Whether building new or renovating an existing structure, creating a new home is a journey of discovering who you are, what you want, how you want to live, and where you want to be. Its a chance for you to define your relationship to the world, to your family and to yourself. Creating a home is more than building 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms. It is so much more than the sum of a few parts.

As with any journey, youll want to do some research and plan your trip. Youll want to have a sense of what the end result should be and how much itll cost. And while youll no doubt be able to go it alone, having a seasoned and experienced guide show you the way will likely mean a more enjoyable, more enriching and overall better journey.

Lets look at the steps, in chronological order, involved in creating a home.

Keep in mind what architect Charles Moore once said: If you care enough you just do it. You bind the goods and trappings of your life together with your dreams to make a place that is uniquely your own. The crucial ingredient is concern, care for the way that a house is built, and the shape it gives to your life.

1. Set goals.Creating a new home for yourself is all about setting goals and taking the steps to achieve those goals. Youll want to establish the answers to a whole host of questions so that you can set these goals.

Goal setting requires satisfying both left- and right-brain activities. So your list of goals will include two sides: a practical, meat-and-potatoes side and an emotional, ice-cream-and-pie side. Each is important, and each needs to be recognized so that the end result will reflect a totality.

By the way, a goals statement is what architects refer to as aprogram. So when your architect says program, just think goals.

2. Establish a budget.While a budget should be in any goal statement, its such an important piece that its included here as a separate task. When making your budget, of course youll begin with what you can afford, and how the cost of your house fits in with your overall plans for the future. When youre ready to get down to details, include everything that will go into the project: the cost of the land, local fees and taxes, design and engineering fees, construction of not just the home but the landscape, plus furniture and decorating.

And dont forget a healthy contingency. As with any complex project, things will happen, and the road from point A to point B will have a detour or two. Make sure that these little side trips wont send you over the edge.

A spreadsheet program such as Excel is a good tool to use for developing a budget, as you can continuously update and modify it as you work your way through the project.

3. Find some land or a neglected older house.Where do you want to be? How do you want to live? What are you looking for? Maybe you want that house in the mountains or with the ocean view, but its not in the cards right now, for economic or other reasons. No matter; youll likely be able to reinvent yourself later. For now, its the burbs with the good schools or some other place. The point is, find a spot on the globe that you can claim as your own and build what will be a home.

And maybe that land isnt a few acres thats never been trampled on. Maybe its an existing house thats just old and tired and has suffered some neglect. The house whispers to you that it really does want to shed those avocado-colored appliances, that shag carpeting, and those single-pane windows, and you know youre the person to do that.

So take heart if you decide to transform that sows ear into a silk purse. Youll be amazed at the transformation that can take place.

4. Assemble a team.While you might think you can go it alone, assembling a team of tried and true professionals is the better approach. After all, you wouldnt represent yourself in court. So why wouldnt you entrust your single largest investment to an experienced team that wont be learning on your dime?

An architect and a builder (if not one and the same) are going to be your most important team members. These people will act as guide, therapist, advocate, and counselor throughout the journey that creating your home is. And, as with all good professionals, the right guide can ensure that the journey is all the more enjoyable.

As you embark on this journey, you will likely want to add team members. A kitchen and bath designer, perhaps; maybe an interior designer, too. Certainly a landscape architect, who shouldnt be the last person hired when all the money is gone; you want to create a beautiful yard that will complement the house.

5. Plan, plan, and plan some more.Every large project Ive ever worked on has had this one thing in common. The owner, whether a private developer, government agency, or corporate entity, knew the importance of planning the project in detail before starting to build.

These owners knew that moving walls on paper is a whole lot cheaper than moving walls after theyre built. So embark on a robust planning and design phase.

Sometimes the first answer is the right answer, sometimes its the 31st. Just remember not to settle until youve explored all the possibilities; you dont want to say after the project has been built, We should have done …

And I dont mean big as in size (thats a whole separate discussion), but big as in big ideas. Building a home, be it from scratch or a renovation, is an exercise in making something thats yours. So dream big and have grand plans. There will be time enough to deal with the realities of budget, zoning, and codes. Dont sweat the small stuff for now.

Decisions, decisions, decisions. Youll be asked to make many more than you can imagine. Just remember that God is in the details, so make sure that the details are there so that your home will be uniquely your own and speak to who you are.

6. Accept the inevitable.Youve made the plans, gotten the permits and secured the money; now the only thing left to do is build your house. Youve accounted for everything, so it should all come together as smooth as silk. Easy, right?

Oddly enough, stuff happens. Thats a given. How you and your team react to these hiccups will be important. My advice is to stay calm, keep your sense of humor, and work with your team to address the issue. This is where having the right team in place can pay dividends. An architect, a builder, and others who can work together and share ideas without criticizing one another will go a long way to helping you keep your sanity.

Some tips for staying sane during construction:

Early on make all of the decisions you have to, select all of your finishes and dont change your mind. Yes, youll be enticed by that new thing that comes along. Just remember that once construction starts, itll cost you time, money, and perhaps a trip or two to a therapist if you change your mind.

Every construction site is filled with workers complaining. After all, who doesnt complain about his or her job? Who hasnt wanted to vent about the boss? The best thing you can do is ignore it. Dont worry; if it really is an issue, youll be told about it.

7. Enjoy your new home.Youve worked hard and spent more than a few dollars to create your new home, so enjoy it to the max. Revel in the way the light falls across a room and how it changes with the seasons. Find unexpected places to talk with family members. Discover how this place gives shape to your life and allows you to become the person you want to be.

In the end youll be amazed that your new house is so much more than the sum of just its three bedrooms, living room, and so on. Its the place you get to call home and make uniquely yours.

Luxury homeowners in this day of pluralism and prosperity have only their imaginations to limit the architectural manifestation of lifestyle and statement. There are no rules, there are no boundaries — there are no in styles or out styles, colors, materials, shapes, etc. There is only a pendulum swing between Traditionalism and the current fad. History bears this out. As one prominent English architect of the 16th century defined architecture as artifice, we have finally come to the realization that all construction, whether it be for practicality, durability, and/or aesthetic pleasure is the sum of the clients sole interest. It is only the talent, vision and technical ability of the architect chosen to interpret the client program that makes the final result either dull, acceptable, interesting, inspiring, or sublime. No doubt, the builder selected must share in the goals and aspirations of client and architect. He or she must have sufficient ability, care, and love for the work to make that dream manifest. —— John Henry=block; show=

The same materials and expense thrown away on an ugly, ill proportioned building, if guided by good design, would produce an elegant building, and this is why the architect is brought into requisition, to treat the materials placed in the architects hands so as to give an expression of beauty to the simplest form.

Even though opportunity for expression is boundless, only the proper match of plan, theme, and site woven together with the will of the Owner will result in a truly enduring and timeless Architecture, one that will retain its Investment Value over time. For over 20 years Award Winning Architect John Henry has proven -consistently, that his unique capabilities and background can satisfy the desires of the most demanding and esteemed client. Through continuous personal research and a commitment to Design Excellence, in each case the result is a one-of-a kind residence that bears a distinct signature style: timeless, a true classic.

John Henry is a practicing licensed architect in the state of Florida and Texas with an office based in Orlando. He holds a Bachelor in Environmental Design and Master of Architecture degree from Texas A&M University.

Having apprenticed in a variety of prestigious commercial and residential firms Mr. Henrys work includes examples of decorative Traditional styles to ultra-Contemporary designs which can be found in various communities and metropolitan areas nationwide ranging from starter homes to country estates, and commercial/institutional projects.

Winner of several local and national design competitions, his work was voted the Peoples Choice Best of Show and Best Architectural Design for Villa Verona in Alaquas 1992 Street of Dreams in Orlando, Florida. In 1995 the residential prototype for Time/Warners interactive cable Twenty-first Century Technology House was completed in Longwood, Florida. In 1998 Valmoreal received the Best of Show award for Philip Landings Street of Dreams showcase. (see below)

Influenced by the archaeology of ancient Greece and Rome and the Renaissance period in Italy, France, and Germany, plus the Islamic architecture of the Middle East, Mr. Henry has developed a personal view of architecture shaped by the rich cultural influences experienced in his youth. The distinguishing philosophy of Mr. Henry is the belief that classic architecture may be executed in any style: but that style must be handled with the proper understanding of historical development, by focusing attention to particular details, materials and design characteristics of the period, and by building appropriately to site and environmental context. Above all design integrity is paramount in order to insure a coherent and valuable statement.

John Henrys approach to traditional style is an inspirational blend of academic classicism tinged with romantic overtones. The work can be formal to eclectic: several styles can be brought together to achieve a unique, one-of-a-kind response to a clients discriminating vision. Period style facades combine with practical and clever floor plans which can unfold according to lifestyle, views, topography, and microclimate.

In a time that the faddists are experimenting with chaos theory and the commercial world is steeped in monotonous functionalism, it is refreshing to find an architect who strives for aesthetics and grace beyond just practicality. In this politically correct era where judgment is suspended, an architect is setting a standard of excellence. A bleary less is more world is thirsty for decorative detail that does not overwhelm and visual interest that is evocative, complementary.

The interesting irony here is that John Henry received a Master of Architecture from a university that was insistent on adhering monolithically to Modern Movement tenets, prohibiting the use of any form of historical revivalism in solving contemporary building needs. Since the middle 1970s that idea has been compromised in leading academic institutions allowing post-modernist ideas and practice. While having the opportunity and experience in modern architectural design, the residential field has meanwhile followed the pendulum swing to traditional and period style work, currently vogue. Before this swing was apparent or as nearly complete as it is now, Mr. Henry concentrated over 8 years of private research in the effort to understand and be proficient in the art of the ancients, resulting in one of the most competent and original architects of period style design. His portfolio is resplendent with various examples of Greco-Roman to Gothic residential (and commercial structures) finished in a wide range of materials, budget, and consequently integrity of the period.

This two-sided approach – one of function and practicality, the other of aesthetic richness and historical allusion — results in a best of both worlds resource. Add a flair for an exotic/ romantic interpretation of the classics, the insistence on integrity of the design, and you have the makings of World Class Architecture. If you feel that less is a bore and you crave a return to human-based scale and sensuous form; if you long for the heroic and monumental, for the evocative – the sublime in art, then John Henry must be your architect of choice. If you believe beauty in art and architecture is still possible and that a return to tradition can satisfy a longing for the elegiac imagery of the past please consider an architectural classic designed by John Henry who has been successfully solving living needs and enhancing lifestyles for discriminating individuals, offering a wide variety of experience in terms of site and client briefs, and a tailored scope of services.

John Henry accepts commissions to partially or completely design and detail luxury custom homes in any location of the world. The results vary in scope depending on each Owners unique circumstances and program. Satisfying the conceptual model is the heart of the project, and Mr. Henry has been adept at starting from zero – a blank sheet of paper-to finishing projects started in conjunction with other designers. The energy and vision that an Owner brings to the table is matched and synthesized into an enduring architectural statement which becomes a valuable heritage investment.

Each program results in a one-of-a-kind solution. It is extremely rare to find the typical in John Henrys work. All is special, a wonder. Truly, beyond four walls and a simple roof we all attempt to create a distinct environment multi-layered with meaning, an ephemeral habitation for our body and souls. John Henry has an uncanny ability to draw out (figuratively and literally!) the genetic spark or thematic essence of each Owners vision. The conceptual response is unnervingly prompt. He opens up various possibilities in the conceptual stage to insure that the Owner has considered the principal options and alternatives available before further development.

Because of the highly customized nature of Mr. Henrys practice all commission requests unfortunately cannot be granted. Please correspond as to the nature/ location/ scope and estimated budget of your project, as well as a time/ schedule commitment. You will be notified promptly if available time and resources can be allocated to meet your needs.

You will find that the measure of John Henrys worth is based on the value his services create: a lasting investment based on timeless principles of design, not pasted with clichs or caricature that will date and deprecate your investment. He is a purist theoretically, but welcomes any challenge that would further the boundaries of excellence in design – modern or classical. In creating with any materials or designing under any stylistic basis, be believes that without soul, without romance, art, or drama – the project would fail in its most essential purpose: to create an inspiring human environment that speaks of its Owners vision and aspiration. With great sensitivity to harmony and balance, to color and light, for form and texture, such an end may be realized. Rest assured that your project will be one of a kind – exclusively designed by Mr. Henry and personally executed to the highest standards.

Mr. Henry derives his greatest satisfaction from thoroughly pleasing his clients which is possible by his comprehensive manner and professional commitment, knowing that the manifestation of the creative energy expended has resulted in a truly timeless and classic work of architecture – a lasting and secure investment.

John C. Henry holds a Bachelor of Environmental Design and Master of Architecture degree from Texas A&M University. He currently maintains a professional license in Florida (AR 13013). Licensure allows an architect the right to design structures of any size and type in each respective state licensed. Usually, a structural engineer must check the building structure for adequate member design and specify certain details for steel, concrete, and wood framing. He or she will stamp the structural drawing set and the Owner may then present the engineering set with the architectural set for permitting. Seismic and wind design is required by certain states. Other jurisdictions may require environmental impact studies, etc.

Out of state architects may design residential structures in states in which they maintain no license as long as local engineering is accomplished and reciprocity is granted. In some developments the community covenants and regulations simply state the requirement for a licensed architect to be commissioned and may not specify in which state the architect must be licensed. If prohibited for some reason, an out of state architect (Design Architect) may contract with a local consulting architect (Architect of Record) to execute Construction Documents and follow with Construction Administration.

Many of John Henrys projects take place out of the State of Florida, where the prime office is located. However due to the many benefits of telecommunications, much can be accomplished with a combination of site visits and personal consultation aided by telephone, fax and overnight drawings delivery, and through same-day fax-modem file transfers directly to a local reprographics firm.

Depending on availability/ scheduling, the scope of work, and contract terms, Mr. Henry may make multiple visits throughout the design-build process. If circumstances do not permit extensive representation a local architect may be contracted directly by the Owner or hired as a consultant under the Owner/ Architect contract. The local firm may fulfill the Contract Documents phase for example and be asked to administer bidding and contractor selection, review draw requests, and visit the site as often as possible to insure that the Contractor is following specifications and drawings to fulfill the complete terms of the construction

Projects overseas may be organized similarly to those out of the architects principal working range. The squatters system for programming and conceptual design is encouraged here since there is more limited personal contact. Materials and construction methods have a great bearing on style as well as political, geographic, and climatic issues. Also, local custom and family organization affect the layout of plans. A non-Western lifestyle may usually be adapted under traditional Western architectural forms, and many up-to-date internal conveniences/ appliances/ electrical and mechanical systems, as well as decorative materials may be imported.

The Construction Documents often must be adapted to mimic local standards, which includes drawings executed in the metric system. This presents no real problem but attention to imported electrical motors (voltage and current), cabinetry, windows and doors, etc. must be taken to insure the proper utility connections and fit in walls. Consulting architects must be available unless the Owner might consider having the prime architect locate a Field Representative to the site.

Logistics may hamper progress. For example, the importing of certain materials may be prohibited or taxed; the duration of shipping to the host country may delay the project. Local contractors may not be familiar with the installation of certain products as well. The availability of skilled trades and craftspeople also presents a problem. Many of these issues should be addressed in the programming phase in order to reconcile the most reasonable and desirable design.

…the thing of first importance in architecture is beauty.

Exactly how to proceed varies between professionals. Following is a summary of how to begin working with Mr. Henry apart from contact and procedure outlined in this web site.

You will find examples of John Henrys work in national magazines, even commentary about his views on design and planning issues in major newspapers and trade journals. Or, referral is most common. A brochure will be forwarded on which to help base your decision to commission the architect. After examining more examples of his work, studying background and credentials, reviewing recommendations, etc. you may request a contract proposal and/ or schedule a personal interview. To meet personally in Florida or Texas involves no charge, but to meet outside these states, a time/ travel and accommodation fee will apply (see brochure material). An initial meeting should involve a site visit; if not, a topographical survey should be available for study.

A portfolio of finished work as well as a group of sketches/ plans will accompany the architect in order to review several projects of interest. You will gain information as to how specific projects were accomplished, in terms of planning/ conceptualization and materials selection. A variety of styles are apparent from which to help narrow a selection for your own project. You will sense whether or not you will feel comfortable on a personal level to embark on a long-term association as well. If a contract proposal has not been submitted at this point, Mr. Henry will develop a personalized contract for your review within a week, or if time permits, on-site. If agreement is reached on the terms and provisions of the commission Mr. Henry may be available to begin a squatters session (see below), or at least clarify your exact requirements in person.

Mr. Henry will require an outline brief of your intentions in terms of site, budget, anticipated style and area needs in order to customize a design proposal. Following the interview and discussion of this proposal, some adjustments may be negotiated until a satisfactory fee schedule and terms are accepted. A retainer based on approximately 10% of the total contract amount and contract signatures allow commencement of the design.

Problem seeking or the search for opportunities and the development of the client brief (if not worked out beforehand) marks the first stage of the planning process; it is a pre-design phase (see above) on which everything else follows. Changes to the original conception as understood prior to agreeing to the contract proposal may warrant adjustments to the contract due to a change in scope of work. For example, during the Conceptual Design phase the site selected may not be adequate for the size and style of home anticipated, or an initial budget estimate may not support the degree of detail required per area needs. Or, after developing the initial floor plan schematics, the total buildable area may have to be adjusted 10-40%.

In the late 50s two Texas A&M architects pioneered a process by which the Owners program was tested on-location in a relatively short period. Combined with the French Beaux Arts system of a timely competition under stressful conditions (the famous charette) this process came to be known as a squatters design charette. It was an intensive design session allowing direct feedback by the Owner.

The architect(s) relocate temporarily in the city or town where the Owner resides, preferably close to the site in mind. The clients program brief is clarified, evaluated and possibly modified. Upon agreement of the basic parameters, the architect will study the site and begin sketching several alternatives in bubble-diagram format until the proper spatial relationships emerge. One approach is singled out after several attempts, as the agreed-upon theme becomes key. A conceptual elevation or two is proposed in order to sense the massing. Style, a result of proportion, height, and preconception may precondition the floor plan or may evolve depending on site and changing program specifications. The Owner is reviewing each sketch overlay and edits the progress of the work.

Next the diagrams are further developed into distinct geometries and checked with the site conditions. Setbacks, microclimate, vegetation, views, site improvements, context, vehicular and pedestrian circulation must be observed and integrated. During this process further alternatives may present themselves. If the site is generous and relatively level, a plethora of layouts is possible. If such is the case, a protracted conceptual design session will occur before any hard-lining is attempted.

When the ultimate conceptual plan and elevation is generated in sketch form, John Henry translates the floor plan into a computer generated scaled drawing, usually on a portable or laptop computer that can be linked to a large screen television. The Owner can observe and make changes to the floor plan as it is being digitized. A flexible CAD program allows the movement and alteration of any wall. Several small-scaled plans can be hard copied and then a ¼ scale plan plotted on large sheets from the computer disk. Doors, windows, plumbing fixtures, cabinetry, porches, stairs, etc. can be altered and developed into the initial Schematic Plan, fulfilling Phase 1 objectives.

A front view sketch based on the larger plot will be drawn up next. Color and texture indications will be added. The style is now clear and further manipulation of the floor plan may be necessary to balance the composition of the façade. A style change may be possible as well. Overlays and perspective renderings may follow. If the Owner is very satisfied with this product, further refinement and progress to the next phase will follow. This section basically compresses several weeks of the conceptual to schematic design phase in a matter of 3-7 days and illustrates the basic strategy involved in producing an acceptable plan and elevation. For complex projects of larger scope (4-7,000 SF+) and on more difficult sites, some additional drafting equipment will be necessary to keep the scale of the work consistent and may extend the time period up to two weeks or more.

The development of the concept is an orderly process, but as mentioned earlier, can often loop back to an earlier stage challenging all previously developed programmatic requirements and philosophical approaches. This is not bad, but can either lead to frustration or elevate the project to new heights. Generally, the pre-construction design process is quite satisfying and memorable to all parties. While the design process is critical to the generation of the construction documents, additional effort must be taken to insure tha
