Commitment to Excellence

Larry James home designs are honest and classic, rooted firmly in his dedication to simple, straightforward design. They are marked by a timeless flair that never goes out of style, intended to look and feel as good 100 years from now as they do today. "I design homes for the way people live," says Larry. "My homes are a visit to something comfortable out of a person's past."

Larry James delivers that time-honored comfort and more. His designs offer exteriors that are elegant and classically detailed. Inside, each floor plan is open and spacious, with high ceilings, stunning windows, luxurious bathrooms and all the modern amenities you deserve. Many plans keep your future in mind with ample expansion opportunities. And since Larry knows your home will most likely be a long-term investment, he incorporates plenty of storage space into every one of his designs.

Most people don't read blueprints for a living. Larry James understands this, so he keeps his plans very clear and easy to read. Each element of your home plan is meticulously rendered to minimize confusion.

Every Larry James home plan is an example of his education and experience. He holds a Master’s degree in Art and Design. He is a member of the American Institute of Building Design and a Certified Professional Building Designer. He travels to Europe frequently, gaining a deeper understanding of European architecture.
