Step 1: The design process for remodels and add-ons begins with a free initial consult at your home with our design experts. This allows you to show us exactly what you have in mind and discuss any concerns and/or questions you have. After thoroughly discussing your design ideas we give you feedback on the different options and give you an estimate on how many hours of work the design may take (all remodel / add-on designs are on an hourly basis). If you would like us to move forward with the design work, we obtain a design deposit and schedule a day for our design team to measure and photograph the portions of your home that are necessary for the design.
Step 2: We arrive at the scheduled time to obtain measurements, photographs, and other necessary information to accurately create a starting point for your design concepts. This information is cleaned up back at our office and from here we generate a preliminary concept including floor plan layouts and three-dimensional renderings. This design concept is delivered to you by email, in person, or by hard copy depending on your preference.
Step 3: After you have reviewed our initial preliminary design we meet again either on the phone, in person, or in a web meeting to discuss any changes or questions you have. This process continues until you are 100% satisfied with the design.
Step 4 : After you are completely satisfied with the home design and floor plan layout our home designers will create the construction prints required to build the home. After the final prints are finished you will have one last chance to look everything over and make any last minute changes before printing. With your final OK, we go ahead and print the blueprints to scale on either D-sized or E-sized sheets. Your blueprints will also be sent to you electronically for easy sharing with family, friends, or contractors. The finished blueprints are sorted, rolled, and delivered in a crush-resistant cardboard tube. The prints can be delivered either in person or by mail. We cover any postage fees. Full payment of plans is required before final plans will be delivered.
