A Feasibility Study will investigate the existing conditions of the site and/or home to evaluate it's potential. Research may include meeting with the jurisdiction, reviewing site characteristics and restrictions, and reviewing building and zoning codes.
(1 - 4 weeks)
Schematic Design will explore within the boundaries established by the Feasibility Study. During this phase, we gather an understanding of the clients lifestyle needs and building style preferences, identify priorities of the program, and discuss what can be achieved within one's budget. With that, we create a few design options consisting of plans and elevations. By conclusion, we have modified the options into one preliminary design idea along with a corresponding general identification of the building systems and materials.
(3 - 8 weeks)
Upon having both the Feasibility Study and Schematic Design achieved, one can use this information to meet with general contractors and gather rough estimates.
