Design Process

  • The Design Process begins with an initial consultation with the client to establish their wants and needs and to create a general design vision working with their specific wish list

  • Then we create a Preliminary Design based on information obtained from the initial meeting. This is presented to the client for review and mark-up

  • Then we make any changes required to tweak the design and meet the client's approval

  • Preliminary Drawings consist of floor plans, front exterior elevation and site plan drawn to scale and showing general information only

  • Once Preliminary drawings are approved by the client, we then prepare Architectural Drawings for building permit approval and construction

  • The Architectural Drawings consist of completed site plan, foundation plan, floor plans, exterior elevations, building cross sections, details, and notes necessary for construction

  • We work closely with the client and the builder from design through construction to ensure that what has been created on paper is built to exacting standards closely resembling the drawings and original design and intent
