A Name You Can Trust
Bruce Crane, the firm’s principal, has designed some of the areas most popular and recognizable homes. Since 1986 Bruce has been working with builders and residents to fashion their ideas into the Mid-South homes of today.
Over the ensuing years as he saw hundreds of his designs built, Bruce gained valuable knowledge into the construction process; knowledge gained from close collaboration with framers and estimators, plumbers and code officials, cabinet makers and building inspectors – the whole gamut of professions needed to turn his designs into your home.
Bruce formed By Design in 1992, he received his BS in Architectural Engineering at the University of Southern Mississippi in 1986 and brings with him over 20 years of valuable design experience.
