Hello! Jim here.
Are you thinking about building a new custom home or cottage? Is it time for a renovation? Wondering if the building site you’ve found is suitable?
You have lots of questions and might be finding the whole process somewhat overwhelming. I’d love to help! I’ve been answering questions about the architectural design and build process for clients for over 30 years and I really enjoy getting to know them and designing their dream homes and cottages. Seeing their joy as their vision comes to life is so fulfilling! I’d welcome the opportunity to do the same for you.
Let’s talk… no obligation, no strings attached.
To begin, I offer a complimentary phone consultation. I’ll confirm a few details and seek to understand your needs so that I can prepare for our in-person consultation. It’s also an opportunity to give you a very rough idea of the project costs. If you and I feel it’s a good fit, we can then plan a site visit, consultation or building site review and all you need to do is let me know you would like to chat by filling out the form below. If you’d rather call than filling out a web form, contact my Ottawa (613-831-9688) or Pembroke (613-629-6988, local number for Pembroke area) office. You can reach me at extension 128. We can meet at one of my two offices or at your (potential) project site; it’s up to you.
What benefits do you receive from a consultation or site visit?
I will listen to your desires and goals and provide feedback on:
- the attributes and benefits of your property
- land zoning and restrictions that apply to your project
- the relationship between the property and your desired build features
- questions you have about your project
Again, the initial consultation is complimentary and without obligation. So you have nothing to lose and everything to gain from my 30+ years of experience.

Just a note to say how happy Pat and I are with our new home. We had a lovely Christmas and have had numerous compliments on it. I am confident that with the quality of materials and workmanship used in the construction of our new home, it will remain attractive for years to come.
Just a quick note to let you know both Patti and I are very pleased with our new addition. Your organization delivered the project on time and on budget. We were very impressed with the quality of workmanship delivered by your sub-contractors and the rates which you negotiated. We are especially pleased with the support and service we received from your superintendent on site.

A few years ago, we engaged Jim Bell to design a major remodel for our home in Ottawa. This was a very big commitment for us and something we'd be planning on doing for a few years. Throughout the entire process, Jim was not only a sound and innovative creative voice, but it was always tempered with reasonable, pragmatic thinking.We have no issue recommending Jim Bell Design to anyone considering a remodel project. Once again thank you for an excellent effort.
