History

We would like to think that we do more than design house plans here in the Springfield, Missouri - Ozark region.  We have a long history of establishing exquisite custom home blueprints starting with the simple floor plans all the way to custom 3D design.  Your home plans will be done right with our firm.  Years ago, we started out drawing every set of plans by hand, then came CADD drafting, and today we use the latest technology for photo-realistic renderings money can buy.  

J.L.THOMPSON DESIGN, reflects a rich architectural history that began over 30 years ago by Steve Busch of Busch Design Group. Steve Busch was one of the most accomplished architectural designers in America, and is renowned for actually creating the architectural style known as “Country-French,” in which he integrated the “Tudor, English, Cottage, and French” architectural styles into historical masterpieces.   

Upon joining Steve in 1997, Jason learned first-hand the intricacies and details that make these unique house plans come alive. In 2005 Jason was offered a partnership in the firm and became a senior designer of the new Busch-Thompson Design Group.

Steve passed away in 2007 and we miss him terribly. We honor the traditions he established in architectural excellence. After his passing, J.L. Thompson Design Group was formed to continue this rich architectural history that we feel privileged and obligated to pass on to the next generation. The unique look of the country french design is often imitated, but never duplicated.  We recognize that imitation is the highest form of flattery.

Currently, we design a myriad of architectural styles and love to explore cutting edge design while preserving traditional elements when applicable.   Jason has hired Steve Jones in 2015, an Architecture graduate from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, and the two are working hard on getting clients a set of home plans that perfectly captures their dreams and vision.  We love what we get to do and feel so priviledged to work with some of the best people in Branson, missouri, Springfield, Missouri, and neighboring cities.
