#2  (orig) Our Process

Comfortable, sustainable living begins with great design.

We recognize that all clients have different expectations for the design and construction of their new home or renovation. We have designed our business to provide services for a wide range of client needs - all resulting in an enhanced level of design. Herlong & Associates is a full service architectural and interiors firm that provides services from selecting the correct property to helping the client move into their new home. We understand the coastal lifestyle and know what it takes to translate that quality of life into your home.  Through decades of experience, we lead our clients toward their ultimate goal of a beautiful, comfortable, and sustainable home as a valuable investment.

Superior Plan Functionality and the benefit of High Performance

 As specialists in the design and construction of high performance homes, our clients expect the highest level of functionality from the spaces we create. We have kitchen planning expertise, we integrate the needs of low voltage lighting and entertainment systems, we plan for the space and location requirements needed for mechanical systems that will deliver superior air quality. These details are discussed at length with our clients to assure that their home includes exactly what they need and functions just as they expect.

We design and build homes to survive in some of the most challenging environments - high humidity coastal oceanfront exposures. This requires a full understanding of FEMA coastal regulations and a close working relationship with our structural engineers and building enclosure experts. We understand the challenges of controlling humidity, both by designing a superior building envelope and by specifying testing during construction, assuring that the home is performing up to our expectations.
