Richard formed Residential Design Studio, his own company, in 2002. RDS' history is that of a full service design, construction, and owner representation firm. Born in the bustling Texas home construction market, Residential Design Studio has branched into neighboring states and is now based on California's Central Coast where Richard attended college - and from where many of our families hail. RDS projects span a wide array of luxury and price tags. Whether you are a corporate executive or X-ray technician, physician or physical ed. teacher, let Residential Design Studio's award winning design team provide you with a plan that is unique and second to none.

From our new (and old) home on the west coast, Residential Design Studio continues to serve the southern states, Arizona, and Nevada. Presently, most of the work performed by Richard and his staff is executed on the Central Coast and in Texas. We are happy to consider projects elsewhere and invite you to inquire. We would be pleased to have you visit our pages on HOUZZ and FACEBOOK. Feel free to share ideas you see here and visit us often.

Residential Design Studio designed and built our new approx. 8,000 sf home, and we are so pleased with the results! ...listened carefully to our ideas to give us a home we are so proud of. We’ve never worked with a designer so talented.

"residentialdesignstudio.com" is a developing effort by the company to provide RDS designs to a wider market. Currently we are actively serving builders and homeowners in the southern states as that is home to many of our original clients. As our offering of stock plans grows, we expect this site to expand also to include design ideas, and other useful products and resources for the home design and construction community. Products offered here will be an outgrowth of Residential Design Studio's relationship with extraordinary vendors. Initially we will bring you Sabella Carved Stone.  Sabella provides top quality stock and original designs hand carved in fine natural stone quarried around the world.
