Riverbend’s seamless Custom Design Total Home Solution™ process begins with professional in-house architectural design. By providing trained and experienced timber frame home designers that work directly with our clients, we create unique, well-built homes that match each individual’s location, budget, and style. Celeste, one of our in-house designers, offers a designer’s perspective on creating timber frame home concepts. Read her insights about turning dreams into beautiful realities.

Celeste, degreed architect – In her words:

Designing a home for a client creates a very close relationship between you both. This is because you work with them from day one, creating a space that they will one day live in. And, much like the range in personalities and needs, the type of materials clients choose also make each project a unique adventure. The traditional architectural style of Riverbend emphasizes the placement and design of the interior timbers. Subsequently, we focus heavily on the essence of the timber frame with clean lines.

In addition to working with the client to design a home that they have imagined and have been saving for, I truly enjoy the creative freedom. It’s because I am able to express creative ideas through the design of homes and interpret a customer’s dreams into a conceptual drawing. Seeing a home I designed go from preliminary sketches to actual reality is also a very accomplished feeling.

Over the years, I have designed some pretty unique spaces. From religious spaces like a church, to high-tech safe rooms, it’s exciting to bring each client’s personality into a project. From a designer’s perspective, probably the most unique room I have ever created for a client was a bird room. Intended to house a variety of birds, this room even had a floor drain to keep the area clean.
