Family is the root of what we do. We are all looking for ways to save time and money by living efficiently. Bigger doesn't always mean better. Let us help you utilize your existing space or design your dream home. Our goal is to focus on each clients needs and make suggestions and to help guide them through the design and construction process.
Erika grew up in Washington State and graduated college at Montana State University with an interior Design Degree. Throughout her professional career, she has focused on the Architectural principles of design. Her specialty is space planning and 3D modeling as Chief Architect.
Having lived in many homes throughout her upbringing she has a unique perspective of what works and what doesn't. Driven to provide excellent service to her clients Erika is also a mother to three children. In her off time, she enjoys organizing, snowboarding, boating, and spending quality time with her family outdoors whenever possible.
“I started working with Erika on our huge project of a custom-built home in 2020, and from the very beginning, she was incredible to work with.
I had a lot of ideas and vision in my head, but then again, I wanted modern and updated inspiration and needed some assistance.
Erika was absolutely knowledgeable and able to help with that plus more. She took what I had envisioned and made it one thousand times better. She has experience from the building and architecture level to the interior design level to help make your spaces perfect for you and your taste. We worked together as a team to incorporate all the fun features I was looking for, but she just enhanced it and went a step above. I would find pictures and design ideas on Pinterest and other sources and she perfectly added them in with my design preference being included. If I ever questioned certain finishes or selections, she would bring it all to perspective and just make the process easier for me. She spent a lot of time with me finding unique ideas for our home, that help set it apart from others. I am forever grateful I had her to work beside me on such a huge project that easily got overwhelming for me. Our gorgeous 8600 square feet home is a reflection of us working as a team to accomplish the end result. We are very happy and thankful for Erika and will enjoy it for many, many years to come."
"Erika came to our home, discussed our needs, measured the bathroom for the changes, drew up blueprints, and chose a contractor that we really liked and trusted. She purchased all of the fixtures, had them delivered to our house before the crew started work. She was very conscientious regarding our budget, our tastes, and needs AND saved money on the purchases by finding sales in many cases. The whole thing went so smoothly once they started that all of my anxiety about the time, cost, and inconvenience was reduced to a very manageable endeavor. It was well worth it to us to have someone else do the orchestrating and managing of the project."

"Working with Erika, owner of JJZ Home design was an absolute pleasure. She definitely knows her stuff! I would highly recommend Erika for the whole house project or just a remodel. She thinks of things that you don’t and then shows them in a picture type format to get a true feel for what the house / space will be like. She is extremely customer service oriented. She will listen to your ideas and then take them to the next level. She hears your concerns, ideas and dreams and then works her beautiful magic to come up with something you could only dream of. She is extremely accurate and efficient, not wasting your time over and over. If I could give an eleven star rating, I would. If I am able to build a new house, I will be using her again to capture the house as well as the setting.
Thank you Erika for making it a pleasure to design our beautiful remodel."

"We could not find a floor plan that was a perfect fit for us for our Barndominium. Which is our forever home and we wanted it to fit us perfectly and not forget anything. We drew something up that we wanted. Erika did her magic and made it exactly what we were wanting and even better. She was great at giving us ideas that we didn't think of. We made a few adjustments here and there with her thoughts and suggestions. Windows were very important to us, to be sure we were getting the most of our view. She helped us make the best of space for that. Erika is so friendly; you can tell she loves what she does and she is very creative. Erika has great communications skills and responds quickly. We never met her as we worked through email, text and phone from Montana. But, I feel like I know Erika as her personality always came through with our ways of communication. She made our dream home come to reality. I highly recommend Erika with JJZ Home Design. There is a lot of stress with building a house. But, with Erika I had no worries. It was a of fun working with her and exciting to see our vision come to life in our floor plans. Erika is fabulous with her work and has a fabulous personality to go with it."

Working with Erika was the best decision we ever made! We were looking to add square footage, bedrooms, a bathroom and mud room to our home we built 5 years ago. Our contractor sent us to Erika who we were immediately impressed with. She came out to our house several times to make exact measurements and come up with extremely detailed plans for an addition she designed. We never would have imagined our space could be transformed into what she was showing us. I truly believe her years of experience provided us with the best options and most functional use of our space. She thought of everything, down to how wide a doorway needs to be to carry a laundry basket through, where a hidden support beam may be hiding, and was able to see the littlest details that may come up as issues during construction that have saved us many headaches. She was so patient with our ideas and making changes for us. Being able to virtually walk through our space in the 3D renderings was a game changer and allowed us to make adjustments ahead before starting the building process. Being able to take her construction ready plans to the contractor enabled them to make material orders and request permits very quickly. I could go on and on about how happy we have been with Erika’s services, we pass her info on to everyone we know who is even thinking about a remodel or building project. For what is usually a very stressful event, Erika made it fun and exciting!
