Getting to know you is the first step in our design process. Our comprehensive questionnaire helps you to identify your practical needs, your most desired wants and your design style.
We evaluate the potential building site or assess a home purchase with an eye for redesign, remodel and additions. We consider zoning limitations, covenants and other limiting conditions to ensure that clients make highly informed decisions at the outset of their project.
A home design on any sized budget takes expertise and planning. We help you develop a realistic guideline of costs from the purchase of land and constructing a home to the hiring of outside consultants.
The excitement begins when the creative process of blending your ideas with our inspiration and artistry results in a Schematic Design. This is the first look at the conceptual design of your home.
The next step is the preparation of construction documents for securing building permits and obtaining competitive bids from builders. Many contractors remark about the amount of information we provide. This degree of detail ensures that your competitive bid price is complete, keeping “surprises” to a minimum.
A comprehensive review, analysis and recommendation of contractors’ bids is part of our design service. We have been successfully matching the right contractor with specific clients and home styles for over 25 years. We take pride in our clients’ positive building experiences.
As a separate service, we can continue with you through the construction process. We evaluate and monitor the execution of the work and compliance with construction documents. Periodic site visits; evaluating change orders; reviewing samples of flooring, hardware, paint, light fixtures, etc.; and drawing field changes are some of the ways we ensure your home exceeds your expectations.
