Full Circle Design: Virtual planning for all your remodeling projects

Have you ever gazed outside your kitchen window, wondering what your home would be like if you were able to replace your run-away yard foliage with outdoor living space? Would you add a deck, or do you envision a serene oasis, with ambient lighting and hot tub? Perhaps a custom pool and dining area is more your speed, complete with a stainless steel barbeque.

Sure you can dare to dream, but you may have a certain level of discomfort when it comes to the idea of moving forward with such a big project; especially without being able to see what the end result will look like. This is where Full Circle Design comes in.

  • Full Circle Design: Virtual planning for all your remodeling projects

Full Circle owner Jeff Howard said his unique architectural design experience meshed with his vast information technology background allows him to create a full, 3-D rendering of a project before it ever breaks ground.

“You can actually see a virtual version of your yard before you decide to do any construction,” he said. “This can all be created in front of them during a meeting at their home.”

Through the utilization of 3D imagery, Full Circle clients can fully see their project from a number of vantage points. They can even see how the sun will cast different shadows across the construction and its surrounding and landscaping during various times of the day.

“This is definitely one of the things that set us apart from our competition,” he said. “Being able to edit the design from the comfort of your own living room via your big screen television definitely sets apart.”

Howard wants would-be clients to know his company will work diligently to accommodate projects of all shapes, sizes and budgets.

“I’ve been in this line of work for about 10 years and left a previous venture to found Full Circle in 2007,” he said. “The main reason I started this company was so we could bring talented design experiences to a broader group of clientele.”

Full Circle Design not only allows him to work with people of varying budgets, it allows him to present his clients with beautiful, animated renderings of the project from the comfort of their living room.

“I can add or modify the rendering while the clients watch,” he said. “It is very interactive.”

The company will also help ensure your vision and your wallet don’t run in opposite directions.

“We work very hard to help keep the people we work with from going absurdly over budget,” Howard said. “We want people to understand what makes up the cost of a construction project and deciding where to spend more for the high end finishing touches and where they can save without compromising design.”

But the creation of outdoor living space doesn’t have to be an extravagant process. Most people may be unaware that the addition of a simple, well-constructed deck will not only add to the enjoyment of their home, it is also a phenomenal way to add resale value.

“Deck space creates space that didn’t exist before which is always a valuable addition to a home’s value,” Howard said. “They are very high on people’s resale value lists, ranking second to a home’s kitchen. A great outdoor living space will attract buyers far more than a big mess in the back yard.”
