Wentworth’s Architecture Process

Home Architecture Process Details

The Wentworth team provides cost-effective, comprehensive design-build services.

These 10 steps take you through our home architecture process:


Initial Consultation

We meet with you in your home to view the space and gather information about your goals for the design-build project.

Conceptual Budget

Based on the initial information, we establish a conceptual budget for your home architecture project.

Design Phase

We measure and photograph your house and begin to develop design solutions.

Design Presentation

We present you with designs – complete with plans, elevations, perspectives, product samples and more.

Budget Review

The preferred design is used to establish a more accurate budget range for your home architecture project.

Home Construction Documents

On your authorization, we prepare final drawings and specifications.

Interior Design, Products and Finishes

Our interior design staff guides you through the selection process.

Fixed-Price Contract

A fixed-price contract is prepared from the final plans and specifications.

Building Permits

We procure all necessary approvals and permits for construction.

Home Construction

Construction begins as scheduled.
Throughout the entire home architecture process, from initial design meeting to final construction, Wentworth is there to guide you every step of the way. We are highly committed to quality work and precision – we’re not happy with the final result until you are!
One of the best parts about working with Wentworth is the simplicity of the home architecture process. Under one roof, we offer architecture, design and construction services. In short, we are your single source for any home building needs you have in the Maryland, Washington, DC and Virginia area!

Design-Build Architecture Options

When you work with Wentworth, we present you with different options. Many homeowners want to remodel but are interested in preserving the historic style of their home (Tudor, Georgian, Italianate, etc.). We can do this by presenting a few options for additions or other types of remodels that stay true to the home’s original architecture.
