Step 2. Initial Design Concepts
We will ask questions and review the information that you have gathered about your project. Armed with this information, We will produce some preliminary designs focusing on form and function as we apply your input to the drawing. During this process we will send you layouts of the project as well as 3D Renderings for your review. Once we have enough to show you, we will either meet again or we will do an online conference to go over the concepts. If we have managed to capture what you want in the concepts, we will move to the next step. If not, we will work on more concepts until we arrive at a plan that works for you.
Step 3. Refining the Plan
With a firm understanding of the concepts, the next step is to start adding more detail to the plan. At this point, I’ll add more accurate textures, windows, doors, etc. to the plan. It may also be beneficial to work together on the plan to make changes and discuss the details that are added. You can be a part of the design process if you desire. We’ll continue to move through this stage of the process until we both agree that the plan is coming together with the ideas that work for you.
Step 4. The Working Drawings
Once the plan is at a point where it works for you, we will proceed to detailing it for the working drawings. We will create the framing sections, add notes, dimensions, callouts, and everything else that will be required for the building contractor and to obtain permits. During this process we may consult with your interior designer or kitchen and bath designers to get their input to detail the plan to their specifications. Upon completion of the working drawings, We will send a PDF file of the plan to you and to a print shop. They will produce the plan sets that you need for the project or we can supply the printing of the plans.
