ABOUT MODFORM LLC

SERVICES

As an Architecture practice, modFORM LLC understands creating and building your new home or project is a very personal experience. Your new home is special place for you and your family that is uniquely tailored for how you live. 

modFORM is here to serve our clients in multiple ways.  An architect is, in essence, a translator of a client's vision and dreams.  We listen and understand your dreams and desires and translate this first into two dimensional drawings which later, translates into a language understood by builders who will then construct your dream home.  With a deep understanding of the whole process and obstacles to design and construct a home, modFORM is here to provide a full service to you, the client, to make the process as smooth as possible. 

We are coordination specialists.  We coordinate a multitude of items and disciplines from drawings, codes, engineers, permit specialists and builders so you don't have to.  We understand the multitude of building and zoning codes that will also shape the design of your home.  We are here to represent you in the process of bringing your dream to a reality.

You have a special vision of what your home and project will be and as an architect,  modFORM is here to sculpt and create your special vision into the unique place you call home.

modFORM assists clients in bringing a project from design conception to completion.   modFORM  provides a range of services from design and Architecture to full Project Management for residential and small commercial projects.  Clients can choose to work with us as a complete project manager by using both Architecture and Project Management services or the client can choose which services work best for them.  We work on projects ranging from small remodel projects to brand new construction.  Our goal and intent is to precisely provide the services that best fit our clients’ needs.
