There are a lot of selections and decisions to be made when it comes to designing your house. Having photos of what you're looking for can help. You can find inspiration in our gallery, Pinterest, Houzz and much more. Photos can help us see what style you are trying to achieve and help our designer make suggestions. We want you to be involved as possible. It is always important to make decisions as soon as possible. This helps make the job go smoother, helps eliminate any surprise, and keeps the job going on schedule.
In the first meeting, we like to select the decisions for the exterior of your home. Things like the windows, siding, stone, shingles, garage door, front door, etc. We would also like to go over any framing changes, like moving walls, door sizes, fireplace, etc.
- We will review the house plan.
- Make decisions about the exterior.
- Begin cabinet design and go over options.
- Talk about household appliances.
- Make a list to prepare for the next meeting.
We like to walk through your home with you once your house is framed and under a roof. We will talk about special outlet placement, tv/internet/phone hookups, wiring for the alarm system, etc. We will also go over light placement, so think about the kind of lighting you would like in each room and on the exterior of the house as well.
