DESIGN. PLAN. BUILD. FURNISH.
The first step is yours! Don’t be nervous, just reach out and say “hi”! We’re excited to meet you and we'll book an appointment to chat as soon as possible.
Let's meet! We are usually on site for about 2 hours, and 2 designers attend. We will review what you are hoping to achieve in the space, go over likes, and dislikes, needs, wants, budget etc. We will take measurements at this time as well, and just get to know each other! There will be an invoice sent out for this a few days prior and we just request payment be made before our appointment.
Once everyone has signed off, the fun can really start!
Priced per hour, which will be outlined in a document we will send you called Scope of Work. We take a 50% retainer on the cost of the package up front. The package will include items like AutoCAD floor plans and elevations (an opt in for 3D renderings as well) all materials and furniture/accessories sourced will be shown.
This is our favourite part! We have samples out on display and present your Inspiration Package as well as go over any drawings. This is billed at our hourly rate as well. This will be approx. 4 weeks after the Scope of Work is signed back. Tears of joy are common!
Now that we all share the same vision for the space, we’ll solidify the selections and specifics that will bring the project to life. This includes millwork, flooring, plumbing, paint, electrical, HVAC, trim and built-ins – the works.
We will have a Trade Day at your home in order to prepare pricing and gather quotes from vendors and sub-trades. This gives us the chance to review all plans and selections with each trade. We will then put together your Construction Budget and review this with you. We maintain quality assurance by using reputable contractors and managing the job alongside them.
From here, we will create our project timeline, put schedules in place, and collect deposits.
Using the product schedule you have approved, we can assist in the procurement of ordering/inspecting/delivering and assembling all product and accessories as well.
Once the contractor is confirmed, it’s time to put our plan into action. A designer will be at your side through every step of this process. We will take care of big stuff, little stuff and everything in between.
While everything comes together, we will be there making sure timelines are met and keeping you up to date every step of the way.
After the completion of the construction phase, we will have all the furniture delivered, assembled and put into place as per the approved plans. All art will be hung, lamps plugged in, and accessories placed.
Once everything is set up, there may be a few additional items needed to really bring the space together. This is an extra step that will be discussed as needed.
With you, we will take inventory of any additional tweaks or changes to be made until everything is as it should be.
It’s not a goodbye, just a ‘see you later’! We will stay in touch with you to answer any questions and make sure you are loving everything.
