WHAT TO EXPECT DURING OUR DESIGN CONSULTATION
We will visit you at your home for a complimentary two hour consultation. Please have a copy of your plat/plot/survey (you were given one at settlement when you bought the house) for us to review. After you have taken us on a tour of your home we will discuss various options and possibilities for improving your residence. When you are ready to move forward to the next phase of your project we will, with you, determine the Scope of Work for the Design Development Contract.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING THE DESIGN DEVELOPMENT
During this design process we will meet weekly for typically 4 or 5 weeks. These meetings are an iterative process. We will present ideas and get your reaction and discuss the options as well as the pros and cons of each idea. At these meetings we will present floor plans and elevation studies for your review. We will also produce specifications for your project. When we have received your preliminary approval we will put a price to your complete project. If adjustments are necessary we will continue to work together to achieve a satisfactory balance of design, specifications, and price. Unlike an independent architect, whose first priority is hourly billing, our goal is to move forward to construction. Most architects’ plans end up on a shelf or in the trash and never get built. We share the same goal as you during the design phase — move onto construction. Our designs get built.

We mostly do house visits but on occasion we can meet at our virtual office:

A Big Thanks
We have much to thank our suppliers and vendors for but this month we’d like to acknowledge the contribution of Tandem Data, a voice and data cabling company in Dallas. They’ve always been there for us when we face a hard deadline or a project challenge especially with our condo builds.
