House Construction, Home Design, Documentation and Estimate – Based on your proposed budget, we will develop a design concept that will suit your requirements. After the approval of the conceptual design, design detailing will follow which will include electrical, plumbing, structural and detailed architectural design. Bill of materials and detailed cost estimates will be prepared after the completion of detailed designs.
It took me some time to get used to the in-house design and in-house build workflow, and there were many things that I needed to do to flourish and become profitable. When I look back and ask myself what the key ingredient to success was, I always come to the same conclusion: Communication.
Concentrate on communication with the client. We all know that out of every 10 people you meet, you are inevitably going to clash with one. That is life. Try and ‘pick and choose’ customers. If it feels bad, gracefully decline the job. Life is too short! It is easy to keep clients onboard when you explain what you are doing, and in a way they understand. Clients do not understand 2D drawings, but they do understand 3D. We were all born seeing the world in 3D, and we only learned 2D because that was the best way to communicate before the advent of modern technology (like 3d CAD software & iphones).
