Residential Design

Additions, remodels, second units and new construction. From scope refinement to design and permit drawings.

How does it work:

The process starts with a meeting and project consultation to understand you and your project. Follows a presentation of the design options that will work with your needs, budget and timing constraints.  

Once a final design is reached and agreed upon, the feasibility is checked with city officials, contractor's estimates are requested and consultants are involved.

Required permit drawings are created and submitted.

Before and during construction, final details and materials are defined and picked, to make sure the final look and quality of the work match your vision.
