Working on your dream house can and should be an exciting endeavor.  However, it can be also overwhelming, confusing, time consuming, and exhausting.  It’s a long and tedious journey from dream to home, and there are many forks in the road.

Too often, I hear people frustrated by misunderstandings, cost creep, and timeline troubles. They had to turn back and take another path.  These are symptoms of not setting realistic goals early in the process – with a clear scope of work, a schedule, and a budget that are all in alignment.  They were misguided!

That’s why I’ve created this tool to help you start your project on the right note.  Take this opportunity to plan the route and take the first step towards clarity and ease in a long journey.

Writing your thoughts and ideas will also help you communicate your needs and desires effectively and efficiently. This will save you time and money.
