Our integrated design process provides seamless creativity through planning, architecture, interior design, and building. This process gives our clients security and confidence that their project will be clear and balanced between plans, qualities, finishes, and cost. Our approach to design/build allows us to handle your custom home or remodel project from conception to completion saving you time and money. Here is the process:
First meeting: Interview, discussion, discovery. Put a name with the face. Find out who we are and how we can serve you. Discuss project concept (lot, land, general scope of work, ideas and feasibility, general pricing, timing, contracts, clarify services.)
Next step, decide whether to engage our design services or to provide your own plans or architect. We will integrate your plans or designer into our process.
Our strategic alliance between architect, our in-house interior design consultant, and builder allows us to “seamlessly” create your project based on your ideas, expectations, scope of work, craftsmanship, and cost. In hindsight, this is where many projects start off on the wrong foot- they don’t involve the above three key players to accomplish synergy and economies.
Project Vision Meeting – “Tell us what you want”
Lot/ Site meeting – “Embrace the land” and/or “Assess the Opportunity”
Initial Design meeting- share sketches and examples, pictures, create ideas, room orientations, type of architecture, etc.
Preliminary plans review – evaluate prelim floor plan and elevation. Make revisions and changes as needed.
Develop Detailed Construction Specifications – identify preliminary interior and exterior materials and finishes (for prelim cost evaluation)
Preliminary Project Cost Evaluation
Space Planning and Design Updates
