Erika has been designing fine homes in the United States for the past fifteen years following a ten-year career of designing homes in Germany and Austria.

If you are relocating within Santa Fe, Erika can personally assist in the marketing of your current property. This means preparing your home to be shown at its best for the resale market. Erika can assist in the many aspects of transitions from the sale of the present house to the construction and move to the new home.
Erika’s real estate capability is also helpful in that Fine Homes Inc. can assist you in finding the land on which to build your new home. Erika can help you in locating your homesite in relation to neighborhood, recreation, shopping, and transportation etc.
Once the building site has been selected, the next step is to determine where on the site the house should be located. We can provide information about any restrictive covenants that may exist and work with you to find that perfect place on your land that maximizes the views while providing visual privacy.
Erika recognizes that we all have individual needs and desires. She understands that we have distinctive habits and patterns that define how we live our lives. One person leaps to an early morning workout while another enjoys that leisurely first cup of coffee and a quiet place to read the morning paper. The architecture and the plan of the home must reflect these patterns to work successfully for the owners.
In-depth and detailed discussions will allow Erika to understand your individual needs and how to design a home for you that enhances those very personal patterns that define your life. This information is the basis for the first draft of the floor plan. This floor plan is not only relegated to paper but is brought to the building site to refine the home’s ultimate location. Appropriate changes will be made to the plan to finalize window placement, views and sight lines, etc.
Drafting is accomplished through the use of computer assisted design software to provide you with floor plans, elevations, building sections and specifications. If required, a scale model of the home can be provided.
About the Design and Building Process
Fine Homes Inc. has designed homes using Adobe Bricks, Rastra, or Frame Construction. It is the design and selected finishes that will make your home rise above standards. The average time to construct a 4,000 square feet home is approximately ten to twelve months.
We will help you design your kitchen and select all appliances and interior materials including floor and bath tiles, hardware, doors and windows. Great attention is given to color coordination and the visual interaction of different materials and textures. A well constructed home that uses high quality materials coupled with a design that mirrors your lifestyle is more than a continual pleasure for you to live in, but also your most important investment.
European refinement and design sensibility, the use of the finest materials from construction basics to finishing details, and continual attention to meeting the needs and desires of the client, are the hallmarks of Fine Homes Inc. and truly contribute to a distinctive difference in home design and building.
