Select an Alley Flat Design
House Model Design Options
Community Powered Workshop works from a design catalog in order to reduce the cost and time required for professional services and construction. Clients who select a design from the house models already developed are eligible for reduced professional fees. Each Alley Flat is designed to a budget and a minimum of three stars on the Austin Energy Green Building Program Single Family rating tool.
A Community Powered Workshop architect will help you to select the house model that best meets your needs and site constraints. Community Powered Workshop will then work with a structural and civil engineer to adapt your Alley Flat design to your property and develop a set of drawings for construction. Community Powered Workshop will issue the Construction Documents, including drawings and specifications, along with the permit application and Green Building program checklist for the Bidding and Permitting process.
If you have specific site considerations or program requirements Community Powered Workshop will create a custom Alley Flat design for an additional fee. A Community Powered Workshop architect will incorporate neighborhood and site specifics, your preferences, and development requirements to produce a custom design for your property.
A good place to begin is to make a wish list of features you’d like for your Alley Flat.
Think about the objectives you have for the project, including environmental sustainability, exterior spaces and amenities, renter preferences, and maintenance. With this list, Community Powered Workshop can help develop the program, a complete listing of rooms, sizes, features, and additional requirements that reflect your project goals.
With the program in hand, Community Powered Workshop will work over a three to six-month process to complete the design.
As a team, we will establish a project schedule and important dates to exchange ideas and feedback about the design. At the end of the design process, Community Powered Workshop will issue the Construction Documents, including drawings and specifications, along with the permit application and Green Building program checklist for the Bidding and Permitting process.
