What We Do

Tabberson Architects is a full service architectural firm. We can guide you from your first project idea through the final construction. We provide consultation throughout the jungle of decisions that need to be made to complete a project: design options, building codes, permitting, vendor and contractor choices, and so on. We offer services in:

  • Residential Design- Homes of all sizes, styles, and price points
  • Commercial Design- Restaurants and retail establishments
  • Timberframe Design- Homes, businesses, and pavilions, big or small

Beyond our traditional styles of architecture, we also specialize in timberframe design.

We are experts in the timberframe market and are familiar with all of the major vendors and their techniques in the industry. Work with us to make your timberframe dream come true!
We have also designed architecture for several quality housing developments with spec, semi-custom, and full-custom unit strategies. If you are a developer, contact us!

How We Do It

Our customized approach ensures that your home reflects everything that is unique to you and your family. Our team will collaborate with you and translate your ideas into drawings and imagery for you to review throughout the design process:

  • Schematic Design Phase – Sketches of initial design concepts
  • Design Development Phase – 3D views with refinement of building character
  • Construction Document Phase – Detailed and dimensioned blueprints

In addition to local clients, we serve clients across the country and are experienced with remote communications. We also communicate with vendors and contractors to keep everyone informed and involved throughout the entire project.
