From Idea To Reality

How do you begin?

Every project starts with a detailed questionnaire.  The perfect design begins with you!

What do you charge?

This depends on the size of the project.  Smaller projects typically have a flat fee while a full-house residential design is more complex based on the scope of work.

Do you provide project management services?

Yes! See my services page for a detailed explanation of home renovation project management services.
