    Homes & Cottages

We can design and develop architectural drawings for a wide assortment of different structures:

– Homes, Cottages, Cabins & Bunkies

We’ve designed small cabins up to full 4 season dwellings; wood to full ICF above-grade constructed walls; and from footings below frost cover soil or floating at grade on a slab to piers on solid granite. We have experience with both simple and multi-family dwellings and secondary suites.

– Garages & Carports

We’ve designed tight-fitting laneway garages up to 3 car garages with vaulted ceiling games room above; attached or detached garages; frost covered or floating 1 or 2-storey garages; and even simple carports on piers with posts.

– Decks

We’ve designed decks ranging from rectangular, 1 level entry decks to massive 3-tier multi-feature decks. We’ve used many different railing types and decking products, and utilize alternative solutions to accommodate site features such as when the deck is against a brick veneer wall. We’ve develop pool decks, hot tub decks, attached or free-standing decks, shaped decks, multi-tier decks, entry decks, BBQ decks, wrap-around decks and more.

– Additions & Renovations

We’ve worked on additions and renos of many different scopes – sometimes removing a beam and others a full gut keeping only the shell. We’ve done additions to the front, rear, side, and above for second storey additions. We’ve done additions houses, garages, and even boathouses. We’ve renovated many cottages and even a few commercial properties.

– Concrete Walk-Ups

We’ve designed concrete walk-up retaining wall entrances to both existing or proposed basements. Some examples have included shallow frost-protected foundations.

– Existing or As-Built Drawings

Sometimes the municipality will request as-built drawings of an existing structure, or existing drawings will be needed from which to develop addition drawings or renovation drawings. We can either come to site to measure or we can work with you, the client, to provide measurements and develop these drawings.

Along with the Architectural Drawings, Broere Design & Drafting can also develop a Site plan to position the build on your property and ensure all setbacks are met. Building areas are determined and lot coverage calculations are included. A site plan is usually needed as part of the building permit submission package. Broere Design & Drafting’s focus is to translate ideas first into rough drafts then into permit ready documents for submission to your local building department. From your dream cottage to a new backyard shed, we’re committed to what matters most: making your visions a reality with time efficiency and costs in mind.
