CHANGE IN SERVICES

Beginning August 1st, 2021, we will no longer be offering drafting services for additions and remodels to existing structures. Drafting service will still be offered for NEW CONSTRUCTION only. This includes detached RV garages/shops, detached mother-in-law suites/casitas and custom homes. Feel free to contact us if you have questions or to inquire on timing and current backlog.

 

Who Are We

Small Fish Drafting LLC was founded by Jeremiah Ward in 2004. His passion for architecture began at an early age and was kindled by his father who was a building inspector and plans examiner for the City of Scottsdale. He began to sharpen his pencil throughout high school and started designing houses on paper. He soon transitioned to Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) and taught himself the basics. He attended Glendale Community College where he majored in Architecture. He worked for an architectural firm for several months but struggled being an entrepreneur in a cubical. He started his own company with just a handful of projects and felt like a "small fish in a big pond" and the name stuck.

We strive to make the process of getting a permit as painless as possible. The daunting stacks of paperwork, building codes, electronic submittal and regulations can be overwhelming. That is why we handle  your entire project from design to permit. Contact us to see how we can help you.

The process

Homeowners & First Time Projects

If this is your first project and you don't know where to start or what to expect, you can get in to trouble. We do this full time so that we can help you avoid the pit falls of going over budget, increasing the scope of work and failure to receive a permit at the city.

Design

Committed to Your Needs

We take this first step serious. When it comes to designing the project you have been thinking about and saving money for, you don't want to rush or settle for less than your dream. We will work with you to make sure you get exactly what you want. It's your investment after all.

Produce

Committed to Quality

Once the design has been approved, the second step is to create the drawings and specs. Every project is different and will vary in requirements. We can provide the proper engineering needed to ensure a permit. This process will vary from 3-5 weeks.

permit

Satisfaction Guaranteed

You're plans are done. The engineering is in and it's time to submit to the city. We have built up a relationship with many of the cities and are on a first name basis with many of the reviewers. Since COVID, all cities have transitioned to an electronic based plan review system. This process will vary from 2-6 weeks depending on the municipality and their current load.
