About us

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to introduce ourselves to you. Design 1st (formally Dezines Plus) was established in 1990 to better serve the needs of people building custom homes or remodeling. Our clients take advantage of our proven system to remain in control of their project, build a quality home and save thousands of dollars.

Our Company’s resources include a team of building designers and construction consultants who work with you through the total project from start to finish.  Our staff has training and degrees in higher education in architecture and management along with decades of construction experience. Additionally we are certified members of the American Institute of Building Design (AIBD).  We help you coordinate the work through our network of approximately 250 sub-contractors and suppliers who actually do the work.  Our project volume of 20 to 30 plus projects a year is leverage used to benefit our clients by extending wholesale and contractor pricing directly to our clients in consideration of this volume with no profit mark-ups normally charged by a general contractor.

Successful completion of your project is insured through on site inspections and regular follow-up meetings.  As a member of your team, our staff is continually problem solving and following up with sub-contractors and suppliers to keep the project moving.  From conceptual designs and construction plans through construction completion these measures help insure that your project is designed and built to your specifications, stays on schedule, and is within your budget. We are proud that the majority of our business comes from referrals. We look forward to working with you to make the dream of building your new home an enjoyable and a successful reality.
