The Nova Scotia Home & Building Designers’ Association (NSHBDA) was established in 1995 as the Nova Scotia Home Designers Association to foster the growth and education for home and small building designers in the construction industry.  Members of the NSHBDA have been recognized provincially and nationally, having received multiple Nova Scotia Home Awards, CMHC’s Flex Housing Design Competition, Natural Resources’ Passive Solar Design Awards and previous NSHBDA design competition awards.

With our training and continuing education, members of NSHBDA have assisted many Nova Scotia home owners with the design of their custom designed dream home, their reno/addition design or their small building design project and should be considered by others, as their future design professional.
