1. Project Assessment + During our initial 90min Project Consultation in your home, our goals are to learn about you, your family, activities and the history of your home. We will develop a list of goals and design/budget parameters for the project using our extensive Client Survey. We also want to review your design inspiration images and determine your style. Within about 5 business days, we will email you a detailed Proposal for Residential Design Services.
2. Concept Development + Great Proposal so let's get started! During this phase our goals are to identify and study adjacency, activities, and assess the equipment needs. We will explore the functional aspects of our proposed design solutions, review finishes, materials, appliances, fixtures, and lighting and asses any audio-visual strategies, communication components, and security systems. Together we will hold (3) Design Team Meetings with the Client’s to review space planning and the result is a prepared preliminary schematics ready for construction RFQs.
3. Project Documentation + Once we have a project budget in place we will work from our preliminary schematics to develop more detailed CAD plans, elevations, and design details. We provide 3D drawings of critical spaces - such as the kitchen and bathroom - and formulate all the technical specifications. The result is a complete project package including everything, especially the kitchen sink. Based upon the feedback we receive from the building community, our contract documentation is unparalleled leaving the guess work to us and gets every key player doing what they do best.
4. Project Administration + It's time to get started! Our long-term trusted general contractors, trades, and affiliates will execute your plan. The steps to a completion are detailed and take the right amount of time. Following a successful permit application, the project can begin demolition. We problems solve any unknown site restrictions (still don't have X-ray vision) and we plan the order and installation of cabinets, counters, plumbing fixtures, decorative lighting - all the hard-good merchandise we selected. We work with you on your soft-good furniture, window coverings and accessories ensure that any custom details with longer lead times are addressed. Throughout the process we perform site inspections to catch any surprises and schedule our final installation for the big reveal!
