I feel the surest way to develop a great relationship is to meet as new friends, rather than you writing a check with no clue what you'll get out of it.  At this meeting we discuss the scope of your project and I present a cost for us to design it.  This cost is one number...no "by the hour" nonsense.

First home meeting is no charge

This means if 10 different homeowners were to approach us about the same exact space...well, then we come up with 10 different designs.  Everyone's unique, so their new spaces should reflect this.  We also gather all the info & measurements of the space and take 50% of the design fee.

once you've decided to move forward we set an adaptive consultation

If you have a contractor then I will advise them in the designs you and I come up with.  If you don't then I have several contractors (and cabinet companies) I have vetted & worked with that I can recommend.

This plan shows the Existing Layout overlaid by the Proposed Plan along with pertinent notations and explanations.  Any contractor that is bidding your project will see and read what it is they will be doing and can bid much tighter.

Outlines all necessary dimensions showing your chosen contractor where and how things need to be built to accommodate the plan we've come up with.

Not only do we have wonderfully unique and inventive philosophies on interior planning and functional design, but also with lighting your new spaces properly and pleasantly.  This will allow your contractor to bid and place the lighting accordingly.

The plan we've determined together as a team.  Includes any and all interior configuration and cabinetry layouts.  This plan is marked with elevation numbers that associate with the Elevation Pages.
