  Tom Lee,  owner and founder of Southern Home Design, established the company in 1990,  as a college student. The foundation of values that were put in place then still exist today.  Keeping the client first, working hard, creating designs in a timely manner... and above all, doing what we said we would do!  Looking back over the last 23 years,  we are thankful for the opportunities that we've had. We're equally proud to state that we have provided design services for numerous clients. Today, every project is still approached with a sharp focus on the clients' needs.  

  We have always spent much time in the preliminary phase of the design process. We have learned that the more time that is spent discussing the needs and dreams of the client,  the more confidence that our clients gain in their design. Then,   when construction actually begins,  the homeowners are in the best possible position.

  We believe that having a well planned design for your new home with detailed specifications are critical for a trouble-free home building experience. Our knowledge and understanding of building codes and building structures enssures that your custom home plan design will be accurate and complete and will be accepted and approved by Building Departments in a timely manner.

Professional Building Designer  If you are considering a new home, a custom home, and addition or renovation, we have the talent,  experience and creativity to produce the custom home floor plan design that will meet all your needs. We offer complete professional design services including plan development and consulting. We know that every project is personal,  unique and requires special attention because every family brings special needs and concerns. We are prepared to address each need.
