I will meet with you and listen to your wants and needs for you project. How will you use the space? What’s not working with your current space? Do you like a modern, transitional or traditional design? What is your budget?
We will discuss the scope of the project. Does it involve moving existing plumbing/electrical? Do you need to remove walls, or build new walls? Are we moving doors, windows? Are you planning on changing from an electric stove to gas stove or cook-top?
If I need to bring in my third generation carpenter with 30 years of experience or if I need my structural engineer to attend the meeting to give us more information during the planning stage – they will be there.
From the information gathered in the first two steps I will come up with a budget for the overall project. My financial background helps me put together all the costs of the project and present you with a complete budget. I will keep you on target during the entire project by tracking the expenses, and keeping you informed.
I will draw out our discussed plans using the Architectural drafting software CAD, Chief Architect or KCDW design software which provides color renderings of the new design.
