Orohaus Design will get your project approved by your local Planning Department. You home will either belong to an incorporated city or will be subject to unincorporated county requirements.

The “Planning” and “Design” services run concurrently since they affect each other.

We always check with the local municipal code Zoning laws to ensure the proposed development project is in compliance. The proposed layout of your new addition, ADU, garage, etc. will be presented to the Planning Department for preliminary review if possible.

When we submit to the Planning Department for first oficial review they will check the proposed project for front/side/rear yard setbacks, height, floor area requirements, historic compliance, color schemes, etc. as required by the local municipal code.

We will make any corrections and changes to the design as required by the Planning Department to get project approval. Depending on the proposed project and municipal code laws, special Planning Reviews may be required such as a Planning Commission Review, Conditional Use Permit, Planning Code Exemptions, etc.


Orohaus Design will help design your dream project. We can design your home to match the existing architectural style of your home so the new projects looks like it was built in the past.

If you want to change the architectural style of your home, we can design it to any architectural style you desire ( ie. craftsman, spanish, modern, contemporary, farm house, cape cod, beach home, bungalow, english tudor, etc.)

Here at Orohaus we design the following project types:

  • Accessory Dwelling Unit’s (ADUs)
