About MJS
We want to earn your business. We feel the best way is to compete.

We'll be more than happy to prepare a rough concept of your house if the other designers you are thinking about using agree to do the same. That's the only fair way to evaluate talent and creativity. And while we know the cost of plans is always a concern, as they say, you get what you pay for, and in all likelihood, you'll pay more per yard of carpet or tile for your new house than you will for the actual design! Isn't the design the most important? Not only that, but the cost to build is even more important, and with our VALUE ENGINEERING you could literally recoup a portion of the design fees because of it.

History
Michael has been designing houses since his high school days at Don Bosco Tech, in Paterson NJ.

He has worked in a number of architectural firms in North Jersey before arriving in the Central Florida area back in 1987, where he became the principle designer and company president of a well known area design firm. His design talent was second to none, winning many prestigious awards, when he decided to open MJS INC Custom Home Design in 1997. To this day, his reputation as a talented and innovative designer has brought the areas finest custom builders to him, and he has valued those relationships some for over 20 years. He has put together a small but loyal staff of very talented people to assist in making MJS INC the well respected design firm it is.

Our Philosophy
Designing a house from scratch can be a daunting task for those who have never done it, but we make the experience rewarding and enjoyable bringing the client in to the inner workings of good design so that they feel a part of the process.

And while good design, devoid of wasteful hallways, and illogical spaces, it is the VALUE ENGINEERING PHASE of the process that saves building costs. Because of our thorough review process of the completed plans, we pride ourselves on virtually error-free-plans.
