Custom Interior Design for New-Build Construction
Embarking on a journey of building a new home is both exciting and scary. If you are building a custom home, one of the first decisions to be made should be who you hire for interior design. An ideal design-build team consists of the architect, the designer, and the builder. Whether you hire a builder who has an in-house architect or you separate those roles, you will want an interior designer involved from the beginning, working with both the architect and the builder to ensure a truly bespoke and deeply personal design. A good interior designer will walk alongside you through the new-build process, delivering value at each stage to both you and the whole team. If you are in the beginning stages of a custom home build, we would love to talk to you about your project. Here is what you can expect:
Interior design is an investment, and entrusting your home environment to someone is a big deal. This is why we have an in-depth identification process that allows us both to get to know each other and decide whether we are the right designer for you. This process begins on our first phone call. We want to get to know you and your project, and we also want you to know us and our process. If you like what you’re hearing and would like to pursue a proposal, we will schedule an in-person meeting to gather any remaining information we need to get a proposal to you.
Initial Orientation Meeting
This initial meeting takes place at our office and we gather all of the information necessary to prepare a proper proposal for you. We will review any plans you have so far, we will define the scope of services that we will provide, discuss the project requirements, timeline, and budget.
We then proceed to create a flat-fee proposal for you. Our proposals will clearly outline the scope of your project, our process, frequently asked questions, pricing and agreements.
Proposal Presentation & Project Sign-Off
Since we will be spending a lot of time together, we want to make sure everyone starts on the same page. That means after we create the proposal, we get together one more time to go through it and we can answer any remaining questions before we get started.
