The Sater Design Collection was established in 1994. It was created by Dan F. Sater II, FAIBD/CPBD/CGP, as an evolution from his award-winning custom home design business, The Sater Group, established in 1984. In an effort to combine custom quality designs with more affordable pre-drawn house plans, Sater Design Collection has become one of the country’s most recognized residential design firms specializing in luxury home plan designs. Sater Design Collection has been selling pre-drawn house plans online since 1996. We are located in Bonita Springs, which is in Southwest Florida. Our online presence has allowed us to service customers from all over the country, as well as internationally. We have grown, along with the technology, and now offer home plan customizations, a blog, and product reviews.
In 1998, we published our first book of home plans, “The Cottages”. It was a great success and has been followed up with more than a dozen home plan books. In 2003, Verandah Publishing was created, which is our own in-house publishing company. Our latest publication is “Dan Sater’s Ultimate Luxury Home Plans” book, which is filled with photos and floor plans of the best luxury house plans Dan has created so far. This book and our other award-winning books are available from our online bookstore and other major retailers including Barnes and Noble and Books-A-Million (BAM).
In 2001, we published our first magazine, “Florida Floor Plans”. This was followed by “Dan Sater’s Luxury Home Plans” magazine to reflect our national market.
In 2005, Sater Design partnered with Donald A. Gardner architects and created Designs Direct Publishing. Our magazines, including “Designer Dream Homes” and “DDH Presents” are distributed nationally through retailers such as Barnes and Noble, Books-A-Million (BAM) and Lowe’s Home Improvement Centers. It is the only remaining print magazine featuring home plans in the US.
“We give the same attention to detail in the pre-drawn house plans we sell, that we give to our custom, luxury home designs. I meticulously think through every aspect in creating these unique home designs, as if I was designing it for myself.”
