Based on an ongoing dialogue with our clients, we strive to develop an understanding of the lifestyle, budget, and site-specific needs of each individual client and project. It's helpful for us to get a quick "snapshot" at the beginning of this process, starting with a few simple questions. Some of the questions we will be asking include:
- What type of home design project are you looking to do? (renovation, addition, new home)
- Can you give us a brief description of the design project?
- Where is the home design project located?
- What is your projected budget for the project?
- What is your project schedule for the home design project?
- Have you researched your property/project with the town in which it's being built?
- Do you have a sense of what general style and/or function you're looking for?
- Have you made a priority list of wants and needs for your project?
- Do you have a builder or contractor in mind for this project?
- Have you ever worked with an architect before?
- Would you like to set up a design consultation meeting with Jennifer?
