This is a ONE-HOUR ONE ON ONE intensive video conference session. It will be specific to YOUR project needs, questions, concerns and solutions. I will review your plans, images, and inspiration prior to our session, in preparation. This will help keep our time together focused and intentional. I will use my experience and skill to identify possible challenges and provide potential ways to overcome them. This is a stand-alone service and can be a great benefit not only once, but can be scheduled several times throughout every phase of your project.
This session includes a one-hour 1:1 focused intensive video conference where we will review your questions, documents and dilemmas and determine potential solutions. We will carefully review your concerns and documents prior to the call in preparation, and provide you with clear, legible notes and what we call “red lines”, on your existing drawings and plans. We will draft any additional notes and forward to you in a pdf format for your printing ease, with a link to our recorded session, within 7 business days after our scheduled call. No formal additional drafting included in this session.
Why me? With over 40 years in the business of design and construction, and with countless hours of residential and commercial architectural drafting and space and permit planning experience (including electrical, lighting, plumbing and finishing), I have had to make countless spontaneous and thoughtful decisions during all project phases, from concept to turnkey. I have collaborated with some of the top architects and builders in Los Angeles and have an expanded wealth of wisdom that only comes from hands-on experience in the field. I am well trained and have a keen eye for details and a sense of intuition that can quickly identify spatial, design, and construction issues. Combine that with my practical experience, and I can produce prompt potential “actionable” solutions for your project challenges.
To help you get the most out of your new build, remodel, or addition project experience, we will assist you in discovering and identifying challenges and issues to help you avoid and prevent unexpected additional costs, re-do’s, regrets and help to reduce stress by reviewing the contracts and bids before you enter into a legal commitment. We will also help you define and articulate any of the revisions, in order to help you communicate effectively with your architecture, design, and construction teams. Designing and building your dream home is a huge financial investment, and it is also a very emotional one. The sooner you hire an interior and architectural designer, the better your project success and results will be. I will use my skill and experience in design, architecture and construction to help you determine potential challenges and offer prompt solutions that you can execute with your onsite team.
