We are even starting with recycled paper which uses 30% post consumer fiber, is SFI (sustainable forestry initiative) certified and is acid free. The new printer is also a copier and scanner, so if you need copies up to 36" wide and 500' long we can do that. We can also scan and create electronic files of your plans.

We are very excited that our website has a fresh new look!

The new site is more user friendly with double the number of search criteria in the advance search, the ability to view side and rear elevations, and many more new features.

Since we have added more criteria to our search options, we are still...

Associated Designs is pleased to announce the launch of our new blog! We hear from people all the time who like to share their experience, show pictures of their homes under construction, and of course the finished product. Equally, we hear from those who would “love to see a picture of this home completed”! Our blog now offers the forum for just that. To start a blog on your home under construction or already built, send your photo(s) and story to blog@associateddesigns.com and we'll get it posted. After that, you can upload additional photos and comments of the progress.
