Who We Are

Since 2000, CFH Design Studio has been designing custom, coastal homes in Northwest Florida. We start with your vision and create a home tailored to your lifestyle and needs. Our design team will guide your project through design development to completed construction documents. We can also recommend contractors and interior designers suited for your individual project.

We believe, as E.F. Schumaker so eloquently stated, that small is beautiful. Smaller homes require less to maintain and operate. The greenest home is one that is never built, though since we all need shelter, the next best thing is to build consciously and with intention. CFH Design Studio specializes in and loves the challenge of designing small structures that live large.

Owner, Chandra Hartman takes an active role in staying up to date on issues of sustainability. She holds a B.A. in Sustainable Community Development and a Permaculture Design Certificate. CFH Design Studio is also a member of the Florida Green Building Coalition. Contact us for more information. We would love to discuss your next project!
