The Custom Design Process

Design Process

1. Design Consultation: A complimentary meeting will be set to discuss the design you are requesting.

At the conclusion of the meeting, a proposal will be sent to you via email detailing the cost estimate for your project based on the specifications and the square footage discussed.   

A deposit of one-third of the total estimate must be paid before your project is put on the schedule.  Typically, a project begins within two weeks of the deposit being paid.


2. Preliminary Drawings (included floor plan, site plan and exterior elevations):  After the deposit is paid, your preliminary drawings will be completed and emailed for your review. 

A meeting may be requested to discuss the drawings.  Please provide feedback or approval of these drawings.

The preferred method of communication is email.  Your design fee included one round of revisions, as long as the revisions are within the original scope of the initial design request.


3. Construction/ Final Drawings: Once the preliminary drawings are approved, all other sheets of the drawings are created to match the approved designs (such as sections, electrical plans, etc.).

Once these items are completed, the final plans are email and/or printed and the outstanding balance is recalculated, if overages occurred.
