What is design-build?

Dihedral Builders is a Design Build firm, which means we are able to handle all phases of construction, from concept to completion.  Working with a single company throughout the design and construction processes allows for a more budget realistic approach to be taken throughout the design process, with the end result being a home design you can actually afford to build!  

In collaboration with trusted structural engineers, we are your one-stop shop for the new custom home, addition, or remodel you’ve been dreaming of!

Competent and equipped

Our state-of-the-art drafting software allows us to provide you with photo-realistic 3D imagery of the project complete with room by room walkthroughs, product specific light fixtures, appliances, cabinetry, and other interior finishes in addition to plan-view and 2D elevations typical of the industry.

Because your design is completed by a builder, the all too common “works on paper” issues that often occur with third party designers are avoided. We design in a way that accounts for real-world conditions, thinking about the framers, plumbers, and electricians when placing walls, fixtures, and beams.

We do not adhere to one style of design or aesthetic, however, we often blend classic with contemporary and mix in locally sourced natural materials whenever possible, reflecting our Northwest heritage and residence. Our focus is to design functional and beautiful spaces that are a pleasure to move through, enjoyable to live in, and easy to maintain while remaining financially attainable.

Third-party design

If you already have building plans or prefer to work with a third party Architect or designer, we are more than willing to work with you. We offer the added advantage of being steeped in the design process, providing you with a more thorough, adaptable and robust evaluation of the build. We understand the challenges associated with designing within today’s code imposed boundaries and can avoid the unnecessary antagonistic relationship that often exists between designer/engineer and builder.
