Design & Cost Finalization
Once the Feasibility Evaluation is completed and your design vision and priorities are captured, we start Phase Two – the complete architectural design, engineering, material selection, and final estimate phase.
Now that you have settled on the overall design/layout of your project (the big picture design), you will start the process of selecting all the fine details and finishes your project will need. These include things like cabinets, countertops, flooring, plumbing fixtures, tile, paint colors, etc. All your decisions are made before the construction portion starts, making the process go much smoother for you in the long run.
Selections sometimes can be overwhelming, but our team is glad to help! If desired, we can provide interior design services as well. Transparency is how we do business, and as you make your selections, we are updating your budget from allowances to specific figures. During this time, we will also be obtaining detailed quotes from our trusted subcontractors for things like electrical, plumbing, and HVAC.
While our architect/designer is producing and finalizing your permit-ready construction documents with engineering, our team will also be hard at work finalizing all the important construction details. This will include any additional site visits, adding dimensions to drawings, creating wall sections, adding important notes and (if necessary) having any engineering work evaluated for code compliance. After this phase, you are ready to start construction!
