What you get

In person meeting, Ideas, colors, what to keep, what to remove, budget discussions, what to expect in each phase of design or construction arrange furniture.

No programming is performed at this time, in other words, no gathering and analyzing information about the project. Programming lays out the groundwork for a solution later in the design phase. After hiring, we will begin design programming where you will experience the process of the project’s scheme. Example: When the exploration and selections are made, concept images, drawings, and materials to convey the design concept.

Next step after initial meeting we write a Letter of Agreement with details and payment info. What to expect after Letter of Agreement is approved, signed and retainer paid.

1st Step


In this phase we will be asking questions and defining goals. We will gather information on our client’s needs, wants and desired outcomes.

2nd Step

Schematic Design

We will be refining goals and exploring solutions. In this phase information gathered during the programming phase is applied to initial design concepts, layouts, and product or material solutions. Initial space planning, general interior finishes, fine tuning of budget, scope and vision will then be presented to the client for approval and sign off.

3rd Step

Design Development

Once the Schematic Design is approved, we will begin to develop and create the details that are necessary to implement the design by refining the solutions and developing the details. Further development of floor plan, initial kitchen and bath layouts, communication between client and designer about specific selections of interior finishes and sign off on progress and make any changes known prior to moving forward.

4th Step

Construction/Contract Documentation

Upon owner approval of Design Development, we will prepare final documentation for electronic submission. Example: Floor plans, reflected ceiling plans, finish plan, electrical plans, furniture plan, interior elevations, interior details, and material specifications, such as light fixtures, appliances, door, and hardware etc. We create documents needed to get bids from contractors from which they will construct your project, building permits. A finalized set of documents will be delivered for bidding and permitting. Any changes beyond this point will be documented as addenda or change request/change orders. Client’s sign off on documents received.

5th Step

Design Development

We now review and approve drawings of specified work and samples of specified finishes and fixtures in compliance with the quality and detail as set in the construction documents. Make scheduled visits during construction of the project to observe that all work is being performed in accordance with construction documents. This is where the dust flies! Product is ordered and installed. General contractor and subs begin working on property. Designer is on site for walk throughs or during installation of key elements requiring direction.
