First, we meet at your home to better understand your vision of the project.
While there, we evaluate what is possible, potential complexities, and perhaps provide insightful ideas as well.
Following this comprehensive introduction, we will schedule a “Sense of Cost” meeting at our office. We invite you to share your inspiration photos, and through a series of questions obtain a general sense of your taste in selections.
SENSE OF COST/DESIGN AGREEMENT
Next we have a “Sense of Cost” meeting to show you our opinion of what you could spend. This is key vs. going straight to an architect because you may not really understand how much a renovation project will cost. Some clients have spent a lot of money with an architect just to later abandon their plans because the cost exceeded their expectations. So there is a lot of value to have our opinion and guidance throughout the design process.
If our “Sense of Cost” makes sense to you, then the next step is to work together under a design agreement.
Our design agreement is not a commitment to go to contract, it simply establishes our working relationship as we move forward and design your project together.
At any time, if you change your mind there is no obligation to proceed with designs. You are simply agreeing to pay the design bills as we work together.
Once we agree on a scope of work and budget, the next step is to sign a contract.
At this point you will already be familiar with our builder software, making it a smooth transition for you to stay connected with us throughout the project.
