| DESIGN PROCESS

| INITIAL MEETING

   
  • Discuss the projects’ size, scope, scale, & owners’ wants & needs.
  • Review client’s sketches, plans, photos & details in order to gather sufficient information to begin the design.
  • Review clients’ lot for suitability, setbacks, views, grading, constraints, etc.
  • Discuss exterior styling, finishes, materials, windows, doors, features, etc.
  • Discuss time line requirements.

 
Work order is completed and signed by client.
(Initial deposit is required at this time)


| PRELIMINARY DESIGN STAGE

   
  • We create the preliminary floor plans depicting the layout, size, features, window & door locations and sizes, etc.
  • The drawings are the emailed to the clients for review and comments.
  • A second meeting is usually advised in our office to discuss the proposed revisions.
  • If this is not feasible, then the client would email us the “clearly marked up” drawings along with a detailed description of the proposed revisions.
  • Up to 2 more revision stages are included.


Once preliminary design is approved then drawings go to working drawing stage.

| WORKING DRAWING STAGE (second deposit is required at this time)

   
  • We create the working drawings and then send them to client for review.
  • Client then carefully reviews the drawings. Minor (non-structural) changes may be made at no additional cost.
  • Major (as well as structural) changes will be subject to addition fees.


| WORKING DRAWING APPROVAL

   
  • The drawings have been reviewed and approved for release for construction.
  • We make the necessary copies (some charges may apply) and PDF files.
  • Client would then make arrangements to pick up drawings and make final payment on the balance owing. (deposits are applied to final bill)
  • No plans are released until they are paid in full.
  • This concludes our agreement and you now get to build your “Dream home”.


We are always here to help if further assistance is required in the future.


| PERMIT STAGE (client's responsibility)

Additional information is required to obtain a building permit beyond the “Working Drawings”.
