1 | COMMUNICATE
Your visionYour dream home project begins before you even reach out to us to schedule an estimate. You’ve already spent time day dreaming, searching, and focusing on various designs that excite and inspire you. You probably have a lot of ideas already, and some sense of what materials and features you want to include in our new space. We communicate clearly with you from the very start, working to define your needs, desires and style.
Reaching OutNow you’ve begun reviewing companies to handle your project. When you make initial contact with A New Life, we’ll ask some general questions about your space (goals, budget, timeline, etc.). Once we’ve established an informed sense of what you’re looking for, we’ll make an appointment to meet on location for initial review.
Initial AppointmentDuring the initial review appointment, we’ll talk with you about your wish list, the challenges we expect related to your space, your preference on materials, and your project budget. If you decide to move forward with an official estimate, we will take measurements and request an initial design retainer ($150.00) from you. The retainer is non-refundable, however, if we move forward with the project it will be credited to your account.
2 | COLLABORATE
Project design & estimateOur design team will take the information they gathered from the first appointment and incorporate them into the final design. Once the design is complete, our project team will review the proposal for time needed to complete the work. By the end of the collaborative design process, you will receive a creative, on-budget, practical design, a detailed scope of work, an estimate of the total job cost and a comprehensive timeline.
Contract signingWe will meet for a second appointment to review the full proposal, and sign service contracts with an identified project start date.
Material selection | Design finalizationOnce the contract has been signed, the final phase of the collaboration process begins. Now you will select your project materials and approve the full project. Once that’s done, the project management and construction team will take over.
