The Secret Psychology Behind 20+ Years of Home Design Success

What Our Clients Say

"We sent a layout to Larry with lots of modifications on it in writing. To our surprise, he designed our blueprints to exactly what we were wanting without any questions. He did a very wonderful job and it was also great how he listed each load that would be needed in sequence. We were very impressed with his work and at a very reasonable price. We would recommend him to anyone."

- Carrie Albright,
S. Bloomingville, OH

Believe me, Larry & his ability to design structures, is a 'jewel in the rough.' I was referred to him as an experienced log home designer & I had either a log (or log slab) home in mind. I contacted Larry, & in no time, had plans & the specifications. This was to the last nail & piece of siding.

Larry's work is reasonably priced & excellent quality. He knows builders & suppliers who can have you in 'front of the fireplace' in no time.

And Even More Say

You are truly a "wonder worker". I called the township today to see if they had any news on our plans we gave them and the guy said he would have everything ready for me to pick up the permit next Wed. WOW!!!!! I have never heard of or seen anything go through so quickly - you have the talent, Larry.

I am so glad that we may be able to get this project underway before the real cold weather sets in and the builder can maybe be working on the interior by that time and maybe Mom can be here early spring. She turns 80 in April and we would love to have an 80th Birthday party and housewarming all in one for her and all her friends. We will see how the Lord leads. He is working quickly in all of this and I am amazed and what He has done through you and the builder. Thank you so much. I will be taking pictures and keeping you updated on all of it. We do promote you any opportunity that we get. You are GREAT!

Thank you
Ron and Marcy Shingle

…your website and found it to be very entertaining. It was geared to getting the "Larry's Homes novice" to do what I had pretty much already decided on from the great phone conversation we had, which is trust your expertise in your industry.

-Alan Leeth, Virginia

"In my line of work I build both log and conventional homes. It can be difficult to find someone who can draw prints for both styles. I received a flyer in advertising Larry's Home Design. I was planning to build a house for myself and decided to try Larry's that way I could guage whether I would use him for my clients. I was very impressed and since then Larry's Home Design draws prints for all our customers."
