Design Your Life,
Not Just Your Home
By using a design build firm, you greatly increase your ability to create a design that you can afford to build. For a small minority of people price is no object; however, most clients are constrained at some level by their budget, no matter the price point of the project. In some cases, you may need to scale back on your overall project, or phase out the larger vision into smaller projects that are completed over a few years. This is a much more favorable option to spending thousands of dollars on plans that you can't act on. It always saddens us when clients send over plans and then are truly shocked by what it will cost to build. Don't design your plans in a vacuum...call us before your first meeting with an architect, even if you don't use one of our trusted professionals.
Our process is work hand in hand with you and one of our architects or certified building designers (when full blue prints are necessary) to ensure that the cost implications of the proposed design is being monitored as the design phase evolves. We also offer conceptual design services (typically for smaller projects), assistance with the materials and fixers selection process and close management of budgeting considerations. We also encourage our clients to connect to us Houzz so that we can collaborate on ideabooks. Houzz is an excellent source of inspiration and allows you to organize your ideas electronically vs. in a large paper file with hundreds of magazine cut outs.
Let us officiate the marriage of your design to your building costs and set you off on the path to creating the home of your dreams!
