Your Dream Hangar Home Is Closer Than Ever Before.

Begin your personal hangar home design profile…

It is common that we, as pilots, have to explain to non pilots the fine-points of what it is we are seeking to do. Most designers and engineers are not pilots. Most have had little experience in the unique world of hangar home design or construction. Finding a designer and engineer that actually lives in a hangar home, one that he designed himself, is almost impossible. There are numerous advantages to entrusting your hangar home project to someone who has “been there” and who is passionate about the subject.

Hangar homes are not like other homes. If the hangar and the home are connected, there is a totally unique  situation that is easy to dismiss as unimportant. This can leave you, the owner, with a boxy looking pseudo-home that belongs more at an international airport. When we decide to live with our airplanes, we are not throwing away our desire to have a beautiful home: a home that the entire family can love – even if they, themselves, are not pilots. Sometimes a hangar home is a bit of a compromise. I’ve been there. I’ve worked with pilots and non-pilots on hangar home designs (aside from my other design activities) and I know what is important to pilots and to those who live with pilots. I specialize in integrating lifestyle with aviation.

Because of the electronic nature of modern design, you and I can be in the same neighborhood or across the continent. It makes no difference. We meet as often as we need to using the latest in communication and computer technology. Designs are always three dimension and you will see every view of our creations including a virtual walk-through. The experience is really fun.

You will save money by doing it right. Trying to combine an “off the rack” design and a hangar is expensive. You can learn more about this fact in other articles I have written.

Stop Searching: You found what you’re looking for! Being a first time owner/builder we almost made a costly mistake and purchased a “warehouse” house plan from one of those fancy websites. Research found it wasn’t signed and sealed by an engineer as required for permit by the Bldg Dept., also the plan wasn’t exactly as the wife wanted. Continuing the search I stumbled on Ken’s website and knew I had found what I was looking for. Our professional custom green building house plans were completed in no time, signed, sealed, delivered, and at an amazing overall cost savings. Best of all, they got the wife’s seal of approval, which says it all. Bookmark the site if you still want to search and compare, you’ll be glad you did. Trust me, you won’t find anything better.
