Residential Client Services

The Appetizer

Beginning with a site visit and an exchange of ideas, images, style preferences, and space needs, and followed by several rounds of concept design and review, our first course includes floor plans, 3-D color images, and an outline of the project scope. With these documents, the builder you select can prepare a ball-park estimate. The process is designed from start to finish to help you establish a direction for your project that fits you and your goals.

Between Courses:

When you are ready to continue with the project,  construction drawings will be needed to get a precise estimate, to obtain a permit, and for construction.  Any changes you desire would be incorporated into the documents at this point.  We’d be happy to assist you in selecting the entree option that suits you best!
