Design Solutions is a small architectural design practice located in historic Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. 

We specialize in custom single family home design with an affinity toward the classic colonial style.  Our aim is to create exceptional designs while maintaining detail and providing you with the best customer service possible.  Design Solutions prides itself in providing construction documents that can be built from.  We love what we do and we hope that it shows.

After several years of hands on experience in the construction industry I realized that it was time to take the next step in creating an enjoyable, long lasting career.  As a child I can remember countless notebooks littered with floor plans and elevations, so logically, the next step was to become a professional designer.  I obtained an Associate’s Degree in Specialized Technology (CADD) from York Technical Institute in 1997 and shortly thereafter Design Solutions was born.

Now with more than 15 years experience in design, drafting, and construction, we confidently provide quality architectural designs with great attention to detail.  We feel a home should be an expression of you and an emphasis should be made on making efficient use of the space while maximizing internal storage areas.  A homes design needs to have aesthetic appeal, be practical and needs to fit within your budget; it should be cost effective in its design and economical in its construction and ongoing maintenance.

We look forward to helping you turn your dream home into a reality.  If you would like more information on the design process or scheduling, please drop us an email or give us a call.

Thank you for the opportunity to work with you! 


We are not architects or engineers, so we cannot assume liability for the engineering of your project. Laws allow us to provide the design and documentation for your project but ultimately a professional engineer is responsible for the Civil, Structural, Electrical and Mechanical designs.  This process can be provided to you seamlessly through Design solutions using outside sources, or through sources you specify.  We will work with the necessary professionals to provide you with the essential calculations, and documentation required in obtaining proper permits.
