Krouse Design Ltd. provides residential design and planning services for home owners and construction professionals. Customized house plans, 3d images and planning techniques are utilized for a comprehensive approach to designing a new home, addition or remodeling project.
Our goal is to provide a smooth, informative process to achieving a design you'll love; one that is attractive and functional while being mindful of budget. A detailed set of construction documents (blue prints) and 3d renderings summarize the design you've approved for clear communication with your construction team.

Comments from clients:

"Everything looks good and we are very happy. You have a nice system to which you get to the final design.

I will definitely be recommending you to any customer of mine doing a future build."

Greg Amstutz (Pandora Contracting LLC) Pandora, Ohio


"The house is really coming together. The back is spectacular and an incredible improvement over the original design. Great job Jeff. Thanks,"


Scott Hapner, Findlay, Ohio

"I love my house!  And I tell everyone how using you really, really made it successful.   For example - flipping the house so I could still have my sun room without any additional cost, figuring out if I had spots to put furniture such as piano, china cabinets (and realizing we wouldn’t of had until we added a dividing wall between dining room and living room to place the furniture), etc.


I was hoping I would like my house and location, but have been really happy to find out I love it!


Thank you for all your help!" ~ Jane Plescher; Ottoville, Ohio 

"We’re very happy with the way things turned out.  For us, I think this will be the perfect home.  We love the layout, the size of the rooms, the exterior character, the walkout basement, etc.  It would have been impossible for us to get exactly what we wanted by purchasing pre-existing plans somewhere.  The advantages of having a custom design that suited our needs was definitely worth the time and investment." ~ Tim & Diane Puthoff, Findlay Ohio.

"Having you involved in the design process has been so helpful to us. I am glad I decided to work with you--worth every penny!" ~ Clint & Beka Patterson, North Baltimore Ohio.

"You do exceptional work!  I love working with your prints, my clients are so happy with everything!  Your little details make a huge difference in bringing a true custom home to life!"  ~ Tony Buff - Maple Bluff Builders; Bowling Green, Ohio

"The effort spent in the beginning pays off as we didn’t have many changes during construction.  I really appreciate your efforts and assistance!!" ~ Angie Schumaker; Glandorf, Ohio
