How To Start
STEP 1: PLANNING
In this stage the Owner defines the requirements for the home and collects
reference materials (sketches, pictures, product literature, etc.) of features
that are to be incorporated into the design of the home. It is also important
to identify any limitations that may have an impact on the project. The
budget is usually the biggest factor to consider when determining the scope of
the project. Other factors to consider are lot size and characteristics,
zoning requirements, subdivision restrictions, etc. When all the necessary
information is collected, Contact Us to schedule a
meeting and begin the PRELIMINARY DESIGN.
STEP 2: PRELIMINARY DESIGN
In this stage the Designer takes all the reference materials that the Owner supplies and
prepares Preliminary Drawings for review. The first set of Preliminary Drawings
consist of Floor Plan(s) with room sizes and overall outside dimensions labeled
and Front Elevation. Typically Preliminary Drawings are completed in 7-10 days. The Owner reviews these drawings and makes notes on the
drawing of any changes that are required. The Owner then returns the
"marked up" drawings. In the second Preliminary Drawings, the changes
are made as specified and the side and rear elevations are added.
Revisions usually take less than a week depending on schedule and scope of the
changes. This process continues until the Owner is completely satisfied
and gives notice to proceed with CONSTRUCTION DRAWINGS.
STEP 3: CONSTRUCTION DRAWINGS
This is the stage where the preliminary drawings are assembled into a complete
set of "Blue Prints" that include all dimensions, notes, details, and
specifications for the experienced builder of your choice to make your home a
reality. Typically Construction Drawings are completed 10-14 days from the
notice to proceed.
