Why choose Sol Haus Design?
As a boutique design firm, Sol Haus Design is deliberately small. I own and operate my own business. My experience ranges from commercial projects to high-end custom residences to tiny homes on wheels. My background working in various architectural firms has provided me with valuable practical knowledge. I have a keen sense of design and above all I value the collaborative process with my clients. As a deliberately small firm, SOL HAUS DESIGN can provide maximum efficiency for all projects, which translates to better design while controlling overall cost.
How much does it cost to hire you?
Do you have contractors and consultants you can recommend?
Are you a licensed architect?
For projects requiring a licensed architect, such as commercial projects, I can work with a licensed architect to sign off on the drawings for permit submittal.
Do you need a license to design a home or office?
No. California law provides that persons who are not licensed as architects may design certain types of buildings or parts of buildings. Generally, a designer is allowed to design the following:
- Single-family dwellings of wood frame construction not more than two stories and basement in height
- Garages or other structures added to dwellings, of wood frame construction not more than two stories in height
- Accessory of wood frame construction
- Non-structural store fronts or additions to any buildings

What do you like most about your job?
"My husband and I got in over our heads with a garage to studio conversion. We live in the small town of Ojai and I found Vina with Sol Haus Design through Houzz. She was great at helping us pull things together and create a cohesive, well designed studio rental. She was reliable, extremely devoted to her work and a pleasure to work with!"
