About Design Services Company

Design Services Company has been providing residential design services since 1990. Our main focus is new construction design and construction plans, working with clients to design homes that meet their specific needs.  Function, livability, and aesthetics are considered when designing homes. We also work with contractors to provide residential design for speculative single family and multi-family homes that appeal to a wide range of the population or targeted demographics.

Designing with 3D software allows us to present the design for review not only with 2D drawings. 3D Images, 360-degree interior views, and virtual walk-throughs are presented to help visualize and give more confidence with the design before proceeding with construction.


Our home designs are located in many Tennessee cities such as Nashville, Brentwood, Franklin, Arrington, Leipers Fork, Nolensville, Kingston Springs, Dickson, Mt. Juliet, Gallatin, Winchester and more.


Our home designs are featured in the following developments: Preserve at Echo Estates (Franklin, TN)

Parkhaven (Hermitage, TN), Princeton Hills (Brentwood, TN), Governors Club (Brentwood, TN), Parkside at Brenthaven (Brentwood, TN), McGavock Farms (Brentwood, TN), Savage Bluffs (Coalmont, TN), Twin Creeks Village (Winchester, TN), King’s Chapel (Arrington, TN) and Moon Bay Harbor Resort (Kuttawa, KY).

Getting Started

The custom home design process begins with a meeting via phone, online or at our office for an introduction and to discuss your goals. Once it is determined we are a great match for your project, a more in-depth meeting will be scheduled to discuss the design scope in more detail. A meeting at your current home is helpful to review and discuss the features you like and the features you feel are lacking. This meeting helps us gain insight into how you and your family live. Also, a site visit to your property is important at this stage. Please feel free to invite your builder to any or all meetings.
