Custom Home Design - Architectural Sketch


We propose five, sequential design phases: Schematic Design, Design Development, Pricing, Construction Documents, and Construction Check-in

Phase 1: Schematic Design (SD)

During SD, we will create a thorough list of project objectives, draw base plans, develop schematic design options in 2- D and 3-D, and review options with the Owner.

Phase 2: Design Development (DD)

The next step is to refine and revise. Once the Owner selects a design direction, our Architect adds detail and incorporates requested changes. These are then reviewed in-person.

Phase 3: Pricing

Once the basic design is developed to the Owner’s satisfaction, preliminary pricing may be obtained from professional contractors. During this phase, our Architect produces pricing drawings, assists in contractor selection, distributes drawings, and receives estimates

Phase 4: Construction Documents (CD)

Once preliminary pricing is received, the Owner may wish to adjust the project scope to satisfy budget and time constraints. Changes are incorporated and the final design is detailed. The Architect will develop construction documents in accordance with the building codes and zoning ordinances having jurisdiction.

Phase 5: Construction Check-in

We acts as the Owner’s advocate during construction by answering contractor questions, interpreting the construction documents, and assisting with final product, material, and color selections.
