Our Process

Our simple four-step design process engages builder and client in all phases, allowing the transformation of vision into reality

KYD-steps_01

The Interview

The first phase of the overall design process is the interview. We encourage the client to share their vision with us. Size of rooms, how the rooms relate to one another, special furniture or art work to be accommodated, the future residents' lifestyle and entertainment habits, and evaluation of the client's property are items to consider.

KYD-steps_02

The Preliminary Sketch

This step involves preparing preliminary drawings drawn to scale. We are usually able to come up with an initial design that represents more than 80 percent of what the client envisions. We fine-tune these preliminary drawings with client's comments.

KYD-steps_3

Working Drawings

In this step, production drawings are created which include exterior elevations, electrical plans, interior details, cross-sections through the house, foundation outline, roof plan, and detailed floor plans.

Review & Feedback

Plans are reviewed, any changes/corrections are made and final architectural plans are drawn up.

Kevin Young designed our dream home for us. After our first meeting with him we knew he could create our vision. His first draft of our downstairs was so perfect we didn't have to make any changes. Our home is completely unique. He was able to take our ideas and show us ways to make them much better than we could have ever imagined. His process is easy and painless and he is always on our side. We loved working with him and will recommend him to anyone looking to build their dream home!

Kevin is the consummate professional, listening to our ideas and molding them into reality as our waterfront dream house on the bayou became reality. He incorporated the line of sight view of the bayou, huge gourmet kitchen & fireplace, outdoor summer kitchen, Caribbean guest casita, wine grotto, music room and other unique features into our new home. His creativity and contagious enthusiasm created the trusting relationship that made this experience extremely pleasant and fun.

Working with Kevin Young Designer,Inc. was a good experience for me. I am not new to the construction industry but sitting down and designing a home from scratch was a new venture. I thought it would be a long a painful ordeal but it was just the oppisite. I told them about what we were looking for and in no time they had ideas and drawings in front of us and after the first meeting we had our initial floor plan. Kevin Young has the experience and knoledge in desige that takes the guess work out of the process. We were told up front how much the designs cost per foot and there were no hidden fees. I feel I made the right choice using KYD Inc.

I have had the pleasure of selling 60+ homes designed by Kevin Young over the past 10 years. Without question, he is the most talented designer in the greater Houston area. He has the ability to meet with clients and actually hear what they want from their wish list, in their custom homes. He goes first to their lot and the inspiration begins there! He actually sees the lot and designs to maximize the views or the special interest of every lot. I have sold homes he has designed from 2090 to 6000 square feet, each one with something special and each one inhabited by a client who says, "my house is perfect, I wouldn't change a thing!" As a salesperson, I spend a lot of time with potential buyers. I hear their "wish lists" and have been able to see those appear in even the spec houses he designs! Kevin does not drag out the process, he meets deadlines or is before them! He works very well with different clients, and does all humanly possible to present each client with exactly what they have asked for! He is professional, unbelievably talented, and always 'on the mark'.

We have engaged Kevin Young to design three different homes for us over the past twenty years, and each one has been perfectly suited for our needs at those points in time. Kevin is extremely talented with a unique gift for creating beautifully open living spaces with architecturally interesting, yet functional, features. He listens to our ideas and enhances them or offers alternative options for our consideration before incorporating them into the finished design. His plans for one of our homes so impressed our home builder that he engaged Kevin to design his personal residence. Since our home builder had been in the business for over 30 years with access to a huge network of designers, his hiring Kevin was quite a compliment. We have also recently introduced him to friends who, after meeting with him and exchanging ideas, dismissed the designer they were working with and instead hired Kevin to design their new home. We are planning to build a vacation home in the near future and look forward to working with him again on a fourth house - knowing, without a doubt, he will again create the perfect place for us.
