Housing Design Matters really delivered on their promise. The plans exceeded my expectations given the constraints of lot size, building height, and lot coverage.

Deryl Patterson worked as lead architect on an ambitious partnership with BUILDER Magazine and Taylor Morrison for a project called the NEXTadventure Home. As a critical part of the creative team, Deryl brought passion, elite-level professional skills, poise, and a great sense of humor to a process that challenged its separate interests to collaborate, focus, and deal ably within time and budget constraints. Her profound knowledge of 55+ adult preferences and values, her knowledge of design, capacity to spark excitement, and her unflinching, humor-based candor helped keep a year-long project on track, ultimately eclipsing all expectations as it rendered in the real world as the NEXTadventure Home. Deryl is a joy and a pro to work with - the sense of humor comes as a bonus.

After closely collaborating with Deryl Patterson and her team at Housing Design Matters on the 2017 BUILDER Taylor Morrison NEXTadventure Home, I can confidently say that they are one of the most professional, passionate, and qualified architectural firms that I’ve had the pleasure of working with.
Deryl has the unique ability to deliver projects and plans that truly understand and speak to prospective buyers, all while respecting clients’ deadlines and demands. The “WOW” factor that Deryl and her team bring forth is unsurpassed, which is why I will continue to recommend Housing Design Matters both now, and in the future. On top of their quality work, they are a true pleasure to work with and I look forward to partnering together on future successes!

Deryl created fresh ideas with very limited space and several requirements. She did this in a very busy market on time and on budget. A pleasure to work with.

Deryl is a true collaborator and impressive leader. I had the pleasure of working with her on the 2017 Taylor Morrison NEXTadventure project and she not only poured intense amounts of passion into the project, but made it into an industry-leading benchmark
— Jennifer Castenson, Hanley Wood
Being a local Tennessee builder, we had never paid an architect to draw our plans, so I was a little hesitant at first. After working with Deryl and the Housing Design Matters team, I am very pleased with the results.

Last year, in 2015, we sold 44 homes. After working with Housing Design Matters and as of July 2016, we have sold 52 homes and are on track to double our sales for the year. The value of the plans that Housing Design Matters created for us is really there, and I highly recommend their services to increase sales.
