You and I will meet to discuss the project and goals. We will go over the scrapbook, sketches, catalogs and the "wish list" and all present can have their input. Please have any legal documents at this time also, for instance plot or property plan.
I will gather all this information from our initial meeting and create preliminary floor plans, elevation views and any other detail or section views that you will be need to understand the proposed design. When a question comes up, I will be in constant communication with you to keep the design process going. Once I get a approval package complete, I will send to you for your review. With drawing in hand, we can schedule a virtual tour of your home (as many as it takes). (Can be done at my office or via Skype). This will be your chance to critique and make any major design changes or alterations.
I will update model based on your comments from your review and create fully dimensional drawing package and resolve any outstanding design issues relating to layout, size, or function of the spaces. This will give you another chance to look over before construction documents are created.
Final construction package is completed. Your package includes:
The completed package will be sent to you in PDF format. Easy to view and email off to to others for the bidding process, and you can print off as many copies as you want. You should have guidelines, like time frame for quote submittal. Contact your mortgage lender on a list of licensed contractors. I can answer any question that a builder/contractor might have during quoting. My contact info will be on every drawing.
I will answer any question your builder or you may have once construction starts. The contractor who is awarded the bid, oversees this project from getting the lot ready for the footings to move in date. He/She are to be held responsible and accountable for all workmanship, engineering requirements, materials, and meeting of all code requirements. Any deviation from “said” approved plans without designer or client approval is their liability
