Process:

All client projects begin with a phone consultation with Deborah followed by a complimentary first appointment at the job site. From there, Deborah utilizes a fee-based, two-phase approach in working with her clients. During Phase I, Deborah compiles a complete scope of work, which includes floor plans and an itemized three-tier budget (ready-made, custom or a combination of both) to give her clients the information they need to fully understand the project’s proposed costs and to make certain it aligns with their budget. Throughout this initial phase, Deborah charges an hourly fee to compile the budget and plans. Phase I is critical to the success of the project. It sets the tone of the partnership she develops with the clients and helps her understand their priorities. Based on Phase I, clients decide how to move forward into Phase II, which is the design, approvals, construction, and fabrication phase.  Once Deborah understands which part(s) of the plan, and what type of materials her clients would like to work with, she can provide an estimate for Phase II. During Phase II, Deborah personally manages all projects with the support of her long-established team of experts.
