A site visit is necessary for us to get a true understanding of what we are trying to achieve.
We will complete a site plan if necessary. This is often the case on difficult blocks where design constraints may be present.
We will develop a basic floor plan based on design brief and site conditions.
3. Concept Design & Estimate
Concept plans are developed and presented with 3D modeling.
We will start to develop basic specifications and material selection as the design is fine tuned.
We will present an estimate for review and ensure the development of your new home is what you expect.
4. Specifications & Quote
After you are happy with the concept and estimate we will commit to working drawings and documentation.
A detailed specification will be developed with constant estimation review.
Plans and detailed specification are presented with a fixed price quote for your new home.
