SERVICES FOR THE HOMEOWNER

"You've seen the HGTV shows where you're shown an uninteresting or obsolete home - then the designer opens his laptop and shows you what it could become. …Well, that is what I do.”

"My role is to give you the finest design and the best information possible to help you make good decisions. I will guide you through a three step process."

 Step One: The informational Interview

Informational interview... This is an opportunity for us to get aquainted and to pick my brain.  I want to see and hear more about you and your home.  This will be an enjoyable time of questions and answers - where we can explore, discover and discuss ideas, needs and budget.  There is no cost for this first step. If we decide to move forward, we will enter into a design agreement and move to Step Two. 

Step Two: Develop a Concept

Developing a Concept... First of all, I complete a thorough survey of existing conditions, carefully measuring, taking pictures, and examining all relevant surroundings and systems including structural, HVAC, electrical and plumbing.  After imputing this data, I am able to create and present very realistic images of what your remodel might look like together with a proposed budget of what it may cost.  Be sure to check out my portfolio of recent projects. You will see every kind of remodeling project from tiny to terrific:  Kitchen, bath, addition, attic expansion, master bedroom remodel or major home renovation. Imagine being able to walk through and "experience" the newly remodeled space prior to the first nail ever being driven. 

If you like the design direction and the budget seems to fall within your expectations, we move to step three. 

Step Three: Completing the Working Drawings

Working Drawings... At this stage, the concept evolves into the construction drawings, documents and specifications that are needed for obtaining accurate material and labor estimates.  It is during this step that selections are made.  Once completed, you will have a full set of constuction plans, specifications and selections that you can invite reputable remodeling contractors to bid on. 

The cost for step two & three depends on the complexity and scope of work which will be clearly laid out and discussed.
