DESIGN & BUILD
A GENERAL OVERVIEW OF BEGINNING THE DESIGN & BUILDING PROCESS
TOGETHER WE CAN CREATE A MORE EFFICIENT AND SMOOTH DESIGN & BUILDING PROCESS THROUGH:
Transparency. The more you share with us about your honest wishes, ideas and concerns for the project, the better we can understand how to meet your design and building needs. In turn, we commit to being transparent with you throughout the design and building process.
Sharing your budget and communicating your limits. When we know these we can work with you to find the building materials and details that you can afford. It is also important that you are willing to compromise some wishes/desires to stay within your budget, if it is needed.
Trust & Patience. We are committed to your project and building a relationship with you and your family. The more trusting, respectful and kind we are of eachother and patience in the design and building process, the more positive and successful of an experience it will be.
Good communication. Responding to phone calls/texts/emails in a respective timely fashion, frequent check-ins/site visits.
THERE ARE 3 TYPES OF DRAWINGS/PLANS FOR A PROJECT:
1. Concept Drawing: An image of the structure, showing the general shape and outline, without any measurements.
2. Preliminary Drawings: A drawing that has elevation images, floor plan and basic measurements.
3. Working Drawings: Drawings that show 4 elevation shots, floor plans, foundation drawings, wiring/plumbing details, window/door schedule, detailed measurements and all associated details.
