Virtual tours and video tours, for instance, allow you to see your outdoor design project from every angle before it’s built. You can play around with colors, textures and finishes, change the layout and tweak the design as much as you’d like. How’s that for low risk and high satisfaction?
Here’s our “Design Services Roadmap,” if you will – the process we’ve gone through with every client in our decade of business serving more than 600 clients!
Initial Meeting: In this one- to two-hour meeting, we discuss your ideas, expectations, and budget. We also show you your own personalized “Design Services Roadmap” on a laptop.
Second Consultation: In this three- to four-hour session, we discuss each component’s location, size, texture and color. Components can include: an outdoor kitchen, roof structure, a patio, fireplace or firepit, water features, a pool, a landscape for the front and/or back of your property, drainage, irrigation, and lighting. Then, we review your ideas after perusing Outdoor Homescapes’ private, online library and web links of kitchen plans, kitchen photos, natural stone samples, cultured stone samples, arbors, water features, fire pits, and landscapes.
Development of Design: The following work comprises about eight to 10 hours, completed by us in our office:
- Graphical Pictures – Exact renderings of your house with new components.
- Blueprint to Scale – Foundation and elevations completed by AIA Architect offering ustomized space planning for outdoor living.
- Material List – Quantities such as linear feet, square feet and yards are stated in line item form.
- Quote – Cost per component in line item form. 8-10 Hours in Office.
