Trust is defined as a firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of someone or something. We at CHD Home Designs have made it our mission to build the trust of our clients over the years. We work with many exceptional homeowners and builders, and consider it a privilege to be highly recommended by so many of them. Our clients share our same high standards of honesty, integrity, hard work and never compromising on quality. We know that going the extra mile for them is one of the best ways to demonstrate our work ethic and core values as well. Delighted homeowners are what we strive for!

I can’t say enough good things about Chris. He has practical construction experience which is invaluable. This is extremely helpful in making the building process seamless. His attention to detail is remarkable. He reviews all the engineering documents that accompany his drawings to ensure everything is extremely efficient and timely. Working with someone who understands the value of time and making sure it is “done right the first time” is so refreshing in this industry. I’m looking forward to working with Chris on many more projects in the future.

I have been involved with the sales and marketing effort at Timbers at the Pinery for nearly 20 years. Chris and CHD Home Designs has helped ME sell speculative homes, and custom designed/pre-sale homes for several of the Timbers approved builders. Chris has the unique ability to marry exceptional exterior elevations with functional floorplans. And, the result has been a very popular and salable home. Thanks for all of your help, Chris!

It is with great pleasure that I provide this letter of recommendation to Chris Bottin with CHD Home Design. I was fortunate enough to be referred to Chris by another Builder friend of mine in 2013. I was immediately impressed by his portfolio of projects that he had previously designed. His multitude of designs ranged everywhere from entry level homes to multimillion-dollar homes and everything in between. His diversity and attention to detail is what struck me the most. The fact that he consistently pays attention to flow, balance and symmetry makes for very comfortable and well thought out homes. With Chris beginning his Career in his youth as a Carpenter then moving on to designing structures, this has made him an accomplished designer. He understands practicality when it comes to the real-world challenges that come with every project and how the building process comes together in the field. When it comes to working with customers, Chris listens to the clients and hears what their wants and needs are. He is great at turning their dreams into a vision. READ MORE

Chris and I have collaborated for decades on residential projects large and small.  Having grown up in a family of builders, Chris’s insight into the often overlooked, but extremely important, details of dwelling design and livability has not only saved untold dollars and time for the builders he works with but has improved the comfort and function of homes for the buyers as well.  His designs have that professional and thoroughly thought-out, complete design you only get when working with a pro.  And that’s what makes Chris the go-to professional for us when working with our high-end clients.  It’s been a great relationship and we look forward to working with Chris for years to come.
