What’s the Process?

All my custom home projects (new or remodel) go through 3 stages.

Here's the 3 STAGE ROADMAP for going from "dreaming about it" to "moving into it".

Plan.  Design.  Build. 

In that order!

I cannot stress how important it is to spend time planning and designing before you build.

I help my clients through each of these stages.

I believe that every client and project, big or small, deserves a thoughtful process and a conscientious approach. I've created a step-by-step process within each stage to make sure that you make sound decisions and move forward without second-guessing. The result is a custom home with no regrets.

See below on how to start planning for your project with with me in Stage I: Plan.

Start PLANNING your custom home ... with me as your guide

Here's an outline of the first few steps you can take with me in STAGE I: PLANNING  

Step 1 

Clarity Call

During this phone meeting, we'll talk about you, your house, your needs, and your goals.  We'll go over your Project Brief, assess its feasibility, and answer your questions.  If you want to proceed with me, we can schedule Step 2.  No pressure!

Step 2

Diagnostic Consultation

We'll meet at your site or home to see what we're working with.  We'll review the challenges and explore design solutions; discuss opportunities and potential problems, and nail down a path forward.  I call this the Needs and Options Review :). 

Step 3

Custom Proposal

Now that we know the exact scope of your project, the specific steps we should take, and which of my three Service Packages  will serve you best, I'll send you a proposal of my services for Stage II and III.  I look forward to being your Architect! Yai!

"Sharon has an efficient, no-nonsense approach. My husband and I are exploring a possible addition and remodel of our 1948 house, and we sought out Sharon's opinion. After completing the Project Brief, we gained a more practical perspective on what we needed vs. wanted, and this document has become a real asset for us. She gave us valuable input and a more focused plan on next steps."

"Sharon was very detailed and professional to work with. She did an amazing job coming up with functional and creative ideas for the complete remodel of our 3 story house. We feel like the house is now designed the way it should have been originally and looks seamless with the existing parts of the house layout that we kept. We would recommend her without reservation."
