We get to know our clients, their personalities and needs. This helps us define the scope of work and the direction that we should take with the project. We take all of the mystery, misconception and angst out of your hands. You benefit from our years of experience, knowhow and trade discounts.  

 

Based on your needs, our residential design process includes:

 

  1. Field measuring the premises if needed and providing layouts and design concepts.

  2. Providing furniture, finish selections and pricing, all of which must meet your approval before anything is ordered.

  3. Provide wall elevations for cabinetry and stone, selection of lighting, plumbing and appliance fixtures.

  4. Stair design, select windows, coordinate audio / visual needs

  5. Organizing all vendors such as painters, wallcovering, flooring, drapery installers, furniture delivery, etc.

  6. Preparing design drawings for construction work as needed and coordinate with our own architect or yours. 

  7. On site meetings to insure the construction is proceeding as scheduled. We review contractor invoices and prepare minutes of weekly meetings. 

  8. We prepare a detailed punch list at the project’s completion and follow

up to insure that all work is satisfactorily completed as designed.

Universal Design

 

As we get older, Incorporating Universal Design elements into a home is critical. Anyone of any age can be temporarily, differently abled. Preplanning and accommodating features that allow one to live in their home longer and stay self - sufficient is crucial to many people.


Features such as - wider width doors that accommodate wheelchairs or walking appliances, grab bars or at least wall reinforcement for future grab bars can be  planned, zero entry, walk in showers that have multiple water delivery options, seating and non-slip surfaces, brighter lighting, lever handles, and pullout drawers at kitchens should all be considered in the planning stages of your home.
