About Home Plans

About home plans is revolutionizing the way you think about your home design.

Home Plans NW is revered in the industry as one of the leading nationally published home design firms in the Northwest. Darin Rueppell and his team have accomplished what many strive for over the last 25 years.

Maximizing efficiency of design is a unique approach starting with a simple goal in mind–create the best possible plan. It takes a lot of creativity, experience and technical savvy to create the ideal home plan. Many of our clients come to us with their unique projects, they know our innovative ideas can master just about any project that comes across our desk.

From the simplicity of a 1500 sf. rambler to the complexity of large 6000+ sf. estate homes on sloped home sites, rest assured, we have the tools and team in place to meet the most challenging home design project.

Our Passion. Our Commitment.

Rueppell brings full service and personalized design ideas and solutions to existing home additions, extensive home renovations and complete exterior/interior restorations.

With years of design and development ourselves in the planned neighborhood arena, Darin and his team are experts in forecasting, developing and designing for new home neighborhood projects. We will work with you to prepare a strategic plan and present a collection of homes that will be ideal for your situation.

By exploring the combination of your unique needs and desires with the untapped potential of your property, we are able to respond with a design that is at once considered, meaningful and surprising. Our intent is to maximize what you consider valuable, to discover the unrealized, and to make your home your home.

We help you find the best partners and best paths forward, from vetting contractors to navigating codes and local building requirements.

FULL SERVICE Our role may go beyond home design. We can be involved through each phase of the process, from design through construction, from the initial goal-setting meeting to the day you open your new front door.

PURPOSEFUL We design with purpose. We are inspired by Northwest sensibilities and draw upon classic traditions for designs that are purposeful—not just beautiful.

INNOVATIVE ELEGANCE We explore and discover innovative solutions, informed approaches and elegant simplicity in each project we commit to.

CLIENT-FIRST SERVICE Our designs are tailored to your needs, not the other way around. We aim to fully understand you—so that our solutions are perfect for your spaces and your life.

THE RIGHT FIT We enjoy residential projects that challenge us to reach for new heights and discover new solutions. Our design sensibilities may not be the ideal fit for you, but the ones that are—truly are.
