R. Scott Hobgood


AIBD - Professional Member 


Scott Hobgood originally founded Hobgood Drafting Service, Inc., in 1993 as an architectural drafting service.  Scott is a native of Carteret County and is very familiar with the area and its rich architectural beauty and history.  As the business grew so did Scott’s drafting skills and by the late 90’s he was successfully providing full service designs for dozens of residential and light commercial projects .


Scott began doing historic renovation designs for a local builder in his hometown of Beaufort, NC in 1996.  His first project received such glowing reviews and accolades that he immediately began creating renovation designs for numerous other houses in the Beaufort downtown historic district.  To date, Scott has designed projects for over 35 historical homes in downtown Beaufort.  This is an accomplishment that has yet to be matched by any other design firm.


As a new century emerged, Scott’s love and passion for acquiring knowledge of current residential design continued.  He continues to be a student of the architecture that comprises the historic beauty of Beaufort, Morehead City and Carteret County, North Carolina.  Scott soon had bigger visions and in 2001 he transformed Hobgood Drafting Service Inc. into Front Street Home Designs.  His mission- to provide practical, efficient as well as architecturally appealing one and two family pre-designed home plans.  Scott continues to design custom homes and renovations to clients all along the NC coast.


He then focused his interest on designing custom residential home plans.  His diverse design portfolio currently includes over 400 design projects for custom residential design and light commercial.  His collection of pre-designed home plans contains over 75 plans that are not only efficient and practical but also offer curb appeal.


Scott has traveled the southeastern coast from North Carolina to Florida exploring the ornate beauty of the coastal architecture that makes the south so appealing and one of the most desirable areas in the country to live.  His reputation as a designer has earned the respect of many of the Crystal Coast’s premiere builders and developers.  Whether your needs are custom residential design, remodel/renovation of an existing home, consulting, or stock home plans, Scott’s design skills and construction knowledge can create a design that is right for you.  Our vast knowledge and experience can help you create a custom home plan that fits your needs as well as your budget.  Front Street Home Designs is the solution for you and all your design needs.  We emphasize character, style, and maximum space utilization, while keeping a keen eye on your budget.
