Custom Residential

Single family homes are very personal and important to their owners. While owners may not always completely understand the design and construction process, the team must recognize the owner’s needs and guide them. Changes should be expected and flexibility is key. Structural Focus has collaborated on multiple projects with notable architects including KAA Design Group, Marmol Radziner Architecture, Kelly Sutherlin McLeod Architecture, Peter Marino Architect, and Landry Design Group, among many others.
