Interior Design – Custom Homes Process

Interior design services are offered on a progressive engagement process. Each step builds your confidence and confirms to you that we are a great choice to guide you on the path to your dream home.

Step 1

Initial Consultation

The first one or two hour meeting will help us get acquainted with each other and us with your project. We will determine a scope of work required and sketch some design possibilities. After this meeting, we will provide a design mandate and fee proposal.

We will need drawings:

  • New homes – from your architect or designer
  • Renovations – as found drawings*

*We can help you to produce them

Step 2

Design Mandate and Fee Proposal

Using the information gathered from our initial meeting, we will itemize the work we will do for you. The payment terms are part of the proposal and will lead to the design contract. At this point, we can tailor the service provided to suit your individual requirements. It can range from preliminary design to construction drawings.

Step 3

Design Contract

Our design contracts are organized to provide our services in phases. Each phase builds your confidence in our work to move to the next phase. You will need additional team members for your project besides your architect and builder. We want to be on your team.

 

Phase 1 – Preliminary design

Phase 2 – Detail design

Phase 3 – Project estimating

Phase 4 – Construction drawings

Fees are payable as work is started and delivered in each phase.
