Questions For You

 Before You Get Started

Guidance for Residential and Small Commercial Projects:

  • How much time and energy are you willing to invest to maintain your home?
  • If you are thinking of adding on, what functions/activities will be housed in a new space?
  • What do you think the addition/renovation/new home should look like?  Do you have strong ideas about design styles?
  • How much can you realistically afford to spend?
  • Who will be the primary contact for those involved in designing and building your project?  (It is good to have one point of contact to prevent confusion and mixed messages.)
  • What qualities are you looking for in an architect?
  • How much time do you have to be involved in the design and construction process?  Do you plan to do any of the work yourself?
