RENOVATION AND ADDITION DESIGN PROCESS

INITIAL HOMEOWNER MEETING

Our process starts with a visit to the homeowner’s residence to discuss the scope of the project. At this time the dialog includes what issues are warranting the need for a renovation and or addition and the end result desired. As we walk through the property we make notes in preparation of our estimated proposal. A current survey is required at this time. We will review required codes, zoning, deed restrictions and HOA requirements (if applicable). A design fee estimate will be generated for your review.

SCHEDULE AN INITIAL MEETING

SCHEMATIC DESIGN PHASE

Once approval is received a designer/ homeowner agreement will be sent to you for your signature.  The agreement indicates our fee structure for the project. The next step is to measure and document the “as built” conditions of your home.  Accurate “as built” drawings are crucial to making sure the renovated areas tie into the existing house seamlessly.  The “as built” drawings include floor plans, roof plan, exterior elevations and site plan.

DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT PHASE

The drawings will be further developed to represent the new renovated areas and/or additions. This phase of drawings will include existing floor plans, existing elevations and roof, demolition plan, new construction floor plans (noted and dimensioned), relevant elevations, new electrical plan, construction notes and details, window/ door schedules, new roof plan and new site plan.
*Engineering and framing plans not included.

CONSTRUCTION DOCUMENT PHASE

Upon review and approval the drawings will be technically readied for bidding, permitting and building. Once final payment is received the plans will be released for contractor use, engineering and city permitting.

*Additional modifications requested post final approval will be subject to an hourly design rate.
