COMPLETE HOME PLANS
COMPREHENSIVE CONSTRUCTION DRAWINGS
We take great pride in delivering a complete and comprehensive set of construction plans. We have built a niche in getting permits for our clients in the most stringent municipalities and have experience in almost all phases of the home building process. From wall bracing to air-tight Passive house details, we thrive and enjoy value engineering projects with unusual design or site conditions.  Our hands on experience gives us a practical knowledge of our drawings, and as a result we often incorporate unique building materials and methods that have resulted in significant construction cost savings.
CERTIFIED PASSIVE HOUSE CONSULTANTS
THE MOST STRINGENT BUILDING CRITERIA OFFERING THE MOST ENERGY EFFICIENT HOUSING
Trained in one of the most rigorous building standards, we can incorporate details for your home or addition project that meet or exceed the highest level in energy efficiency. Our Passive House methods and details deliver energy savings of up to 90%, and we have achieved unheard of rough in blower door air tightness levels as low as 0.03 ACH @ 50 Pa on past projects.
CONSULTING SERVICES
OUTSOURCED PROJECT MANAGEMENT SOLUTIONS
Our unique construction background and previous hands on experience gives us the ability to offer construction and project management services for Clients, Builders or Architects. This is particularly important when a project is  a complex home design, is in a stringent municipality or is a home that is designed to exceed code minimum requirements. Our consulting services will include site visits at various stages of construction to make sure that all your contractors and sub-contractors are following the plans, as well as phone consults to answer any questions regarding plan specifications or issues that may arise during construction.

OUR PROJECTS

SERVICES FOR HOMEOWNERS & CONSUMERS

Our Services

    NEW CONSTRUCTION PLANS

    Our new construction plans are detailed drawings that specify materials and methods specific to your home layout, desired aesthetic look,  and site specific conditions. We are extremely knowledgeable on all local municipal codes.

    HOME ADDITIONS

      Looking to expand?  We first draw an as built plan in order to understand the current homes structure. We will then incorporate your addition to compliment and blend with your current aesthetics and construction features while meeting local and statewide municipal code.

      ENERGY EFFICIENT HOME DESIGN

        While current new construction codes in PA and nationally have improved in energy efficiency year over year, code minimum is not the most efficient way to design or build a home.  As a Passive House Consultant, we have knowledge of the latest techniques and materials on the market to design the highest level efficiency homes available.

        CONSULTING SERVICES

          Kehm Design offers project management and consulting services to consumers.

          Our consult services include site visits to offer our clients piece of mind that their home is being built to plan specification, particularly when the home is designed to exceed current code minimum standards. We will communicate with contractors and sub-contractors to answer any questions they may have on specified materials and methods and to address any site conditions that may arise during construction to ensure that the home will meet the energy efficiency requirement goals set during the design phase.
