Week 1-4: Feasibility Study

We will get to know you and your family, the site and the goals you have for your home. This information helps us conceptualize the scope of work. From this, we will put together a high-level budget.

The Needs and options delivery includes the sketch and high level budget (a la carte components of your specific goals). This process is a paid service. The Needs and Options report is YOURS TO KEEP.
