When you accept the Budget/Estimate, you give Lynch Design | Build the “go ahead” via a Design Agreement, and the Design Phase now begins.
Our designer combines site photographs, project photographs and concept sketches, and with the help of a sophisticated software program, produces a visual digital design rendering that allows the homeowner to see what their finished project will look like – usually with options and suggested variations to consider.
Our digital rendering allows you to see things from many different angles.
Working together, we will review with you the new floor plans and elevations, and analyze them for space planning, suitability and construction feasibility; the best ideas are redrawn and reviewed again.
Once both you and we are satisfied with the concept, we print preliminary drawings. At that point, we schedule a meeting at your home for our trade contractors to review the project. This important step gives our clients the opportunity to speak with representatives of the trade contractor companies that will be working on your home.
After selections have been made, Lynch Design | Build will then obtain specific price quotes as needed from siding, framing, HVAC, plumbing and electrical contractors. Depending on the complexity of the project, consultation with a structural engineer may be required.
Once quotes are received, we compile the information into a report that includes the following:
- The Project Specifications Sheet
- The Project Budget/Payment Schedule
- The Construction Agreement/Legalities and Permits
