“The design process starts by getting to know you, and how you live. I’m here to help design your home, not mine.”
The trick is assembling the right team that can take you all the way from design to completion. This is where the design and construction pros at Bella Vista Company excel.
With any home remodeling project, the design phase is crucial. At Bella Vista, this process is led by design partner Rob Little. Throughout his 30+ years in the industry, Rob has designed more than 1,000 homes for happy clients, and brings his vast knowledge and experience to every project.
His extensive training began at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, where he earned a Bachelor of Architecture degree, and continued in San Francisco apprenticing under award-winning architect William Churchill. Following a move to Texas and more than a decade of living and working in East Dallas, he’s incredibly well-versed in the architectural styles and building requirements of our neighborhood.
“At Bella Vista, we begin every project with a personalized assessment of the way the client lives,” Rob says, “which helps us to determine if they need a few improvements, large-scale renovations or a complete new build.”
Exploring ideas up-front is key. Before doing any design work, Rob studies a client’s lifestyle in order to understand their unique and specific needs. He then offers multiple fully designed options, working with the client in a collaborative back-and-forth process, until reaching a dream design at an attainable price point, based on the client’s budget.
“I’m here to help design your home, not mine,” Rob says, “which is why our team is dedicated to designing and pricing our clients’ homes until they’re ready to move forward with construction.”
If you live in a Conservation District, Rob’s expertise is an essential resource in gaining the necessary permit approval to start construction.
“Rob helped us explore possibilities I couldn’t have imagined. He designed a home my family and I will enjoy for many years.” – Maricella M.
He handles the paperwork, making the process run more smoothly and quickly. His knowledge of the system often saves time, costs and design integrity compared to less-experienced architects and designers.
When you work with Bella Vista, Rob is involved throughout the entire construction process – at no extra charge – supervising and advising the team to ensure that your vision and collaborative design is achieved in the final build.
“Bella Vista’s design approach is simple,” Rob says, “we design until you’re happy, at a fixed-price. This promise has led to beautiful homes and delighted homeowners in East Dallas for the past
