About Palmetto Home Designs
Palmetto Home Designs is a custom residential drafting service producing construction drawings for renovations, additions and new home construction. Palmetto Home Designs has 20 years of experience as a residential designer and drafter. Our designer, Tonya Curtis, works one-on-one with our clients to help them get just the right design for their home. Then we produce quality plans for bidding, permitting and construction.
Our designer and master drafter, Tonya, began drafting in AutoCAD in 1995 while working in powerboat design for OMC (Outboard Marine Corporation) and, later, for Boston Whaler. From the year 2000 to 2005, Tonya worked for a prominent residential architect in Columbia. After accepting a couple of small freelance jobs, she left the architect and went out on her own and Palmetto Home Designs was formed.
For the first 10 years or so, Tonya worked entirely by herself averaging less than 50 clients a year. Palmetto Home Designs has never advertised but got her name out strictly by referrals from contractors and former clients. Her ability to work well with clients and produce high quality plans at a reasonable price has resulted in her business growing at an enormous pace now averaging more than 150 clients a year and still growing.
Today, Tonya is joined at Palmetto Home Designs by two full-time drafters and a full-time office manager.
