My 15 Steps from Before to After

1 – Discussion and Assessment.
I invite you to tell me what you want. I ask a series of questions and listen carefully to understand your style, objectives and budget.

2- Engagement of Services.
A written agreement is completed and with your permission I place a small sign on your lawn. I further access the space and take inventory of items to stay.

3 – Design Floor Plan.
I design a floor plan for you. The design provides for your objectives, traffic flow and focal points in your room.

4 – Review of Plan.
Together we review what the space will look like and how it will function once completed.

5 – Walk-Through and Approval.
We walk through the space and discuss it. On your approval, I develop the conceptual plans, including sketches to illustrate design concepts.

6 – Material and Finishes.
I select the materials and finishes that best represent your preferred look.

7 – Furniture, Fixtures and Millwork Selection.
I select these to maintain the design direction in the space and present them to you for your approval.

8 – Instruction to Trades.
I provide detail drawings to the trades to facilitate pricing, construction, installation and electrical requirements.

9 – Compliance and Review.
I review the construction documents, including plans, elevations, details and specifications, to ensure compliance with the design direction.

10 – Project Management.
I manage schedules for the work to complete the project and interface with other professionals for you including architects, engineers and trades.

11 – Review of Bids.
I help you review bids and negotiate pricing to ensure adhesion to budget and design.

12 – Purchase Furniture and Fixtures.
I co-ordinate the purchase of the selected furniture, lighting and fixtures.

13 – Site Supervision.
I supervise installation of the furniture, lighting and fixtures.

14 – Final Dressing.
I complete the project with a final dressing of the space. This includes final touches such as wall décor, placement of pictures and use of accessories.

15 – Client Satisfaction Survey.
My goal is to exceed your expectations. Please complete my brief survey. I welcome and value your comments.
