Custom Home Design Using Computer Software

Project: Modern Colonial, Episode 11, Part 1

The dining room paneling is almost finished, and Bob talks with Ben LaRochelle from Drummond Designs to learn how they fabricated the design plans from architectural models, stock plans, and lot requirements using a laptop computer.

Upstairs, Bob Ryley is hard at work in the master bedroom, beginning with a door installation leading into the master bathroom. Jim Daniels from Woodport is on hand to discuss the features of the door with Bob. Finally, Ryley works on trimming out the doorframe and windows.
Part 1: Custom Home Design Using Computer Software
Inspired by the interior wall panels seen in the Winslow-Crocker house in Yarmouthport, MA, Bob and crew go to work on replicating the panels in the Modern Colonial project house's dining room.

To talk more about the general design of the home, Ben Larochelle, director of custom home plan services for Drummond Designs, visits the project site. Larochelle demonstrates the computer design software that was used to modify the house plans.

Using professional design software, Drummond Designs can make custom modifications to any home plan to suit the owner's needs.
