We accompany you to our preferred draft design team.  Together, we collaborate to help design your custom floor plan with all your wants & needs laid out on paper. The design team will draw preliminary plans based on your personal design and aesthetic preferences. From here, 3D rendering technology is available to help you envision your design in every way.

bid process & creating a budget

Once we have a complete set of plans, we can prepare a line-item budget with allowance packages which will allow us to finalize the proposed price. This process can take a few weeks but is important as we want to give you the budget customized to your specific wants and needs. We make sure you are happy with the allowances and adjust based on what is important to you.
