If you have an idea of what you want or have rough sketches, send them to the office and we will work up some very rough sketches and a rough quote at no charge. It generally takes about 2-3 weeks to get a quote back; depending on the time of year and workload it could take longer. If you’re not sure what you want, call or set up an appointment to discuss concepts. From this discussion, we will work up rough sketches and a rough quote, again at no charge. Meetings are usually scheduled for weekdays or workday evenings.
A good way to start to get a concept of your home is to first determine your budget. Then you can start clipping pictures of what you like as well as what you don’t like and make lists of features you want. Prioritize them so you know what things are “must haves” and what things would be nice to have but are negotiable. Above all, make sure both partners are active participants in the design process and are fully informed at each step of decision making. Sometimes there are difficult choices. One person may want a fireplace in the living room, while the other may have his heart set on a top of the line gourmet kitchen. If both options can’t be included in the budget, make sure everyone is in agreement at the outset so the process can be a “win/win” situation.
