Design Process

Our design process is a well-exercised method that has been proven time and time again. Here is how the process typically works:

1.) Meet

This initial meeting usually takes place at the site of your project location and is completely complimentary. Here we get to meet each other and learn a little bit about you, your site, and your ideas.

2.) Explore

We want to get inside your head and understand what you want. Come to our office with your wish lists, sample plans, and pictures – you can even bring your tablet or laptop! We will make suggestions and takes notes as we discover your needs and desires. (Need some help with ideas? Start your own houzz ideabook here, or check out our own houzz page here.)

3.) Design

After we research all the necessary zoning and bylaws in your area, you will receive a unique preliminary design that includes basic floor plans based on what we have discovered in our previous meeting.

4.) Modify

You will no doubt have some changes. Mark up your preliminary design and bring it back to us. We will modify the plans, working together with you in person, over phone, or email until you are happy with the refined product. Now we present to you the two-dimensional elevations which shows what the building looks like from the outside.

5.) Draw

Once you give us the OK, we proceed with the permit and/or construction drawings. This includes drawing details, cross sections, and putting all the necessary information on the plans.

6.) Review

After your plans are done, we check over them – twice, just to be sure. They are then sent to the engineer for structural review and stamping.
