Nate

Design Director, Renovation Tackler

With a background in structural engineering, Nate founded a commercial construction and architecture consultancy and brings that broad construction industry experience to influence his designs at Boutique Home Plans. 

Nate loves classic New England style architecture and will bring his experience and passion to bring your dream home to life. 

When he isn't designing homes, Nate renovates his family's 1870s row home in historic Baltimore, loves to explore historic architecture, and enjoys spending time with his wife Lauren and his kids (future employees!).

Lauren

Experience Lead

From farm life to city dwelling, Lauren knows a thing or two about what makes a house a home - she has lived in 10+ different places over the last 30 years.
A communicator at heart, Lauren leads the customer experience and marketing at Boutique Home Plans. She has a strong understanding of current house trends, the full building lifecycle, and can help you make your future home one-of-a-kind!

Our Design Philosophy:

While other sites aggregate plans from hundreds of designers, we design all of our plans in-house. What makes us different? 

Modern plans.

We don’t try to sell you plans that are decades old like other sites. All of our plans are less than 5 years old and get updated to the latest version year of the International Residential Code (IRC) annually. 

Modern Visuals.

All of our plans come with interactive 3D tours so you can get a sense of scale and flow that nobody else offers. We also produce interior renders and video walk through a for all of our plans. 

Affordable Builds.

Nate, (our chief designer) has a background as both a structural engineer and a commercial MEP coordinator so every plan is designed to be easy and affordable to build. We minimize extra foundation corners, we maximize use of trusses and simple rooflines wherever possible. Every single plan has a coordinated route for mechanical ductwork and plumbing stacks. 

Partnership.

Our mission is to empower you with the knowledge and tools to build your custom dream home without getting taken advantage of by the predatory construction industry. When you call us, you actually talk to the house designer. We’ve invested to develop free tools like cost-to-build calculators, the construction toolkit and will be here to answer any and all of your construction related questions as you begin your journey.
