Phase 2: Design Development
This phase begins by taking the sketches from the previous phase and importing them into the computer, where the design is carefully “modeled” in 3 dimensions. The benefits of this approach are that the client is able to explore the proposed house and view it from all angles (inside and out) instead of basing decisions on static 2-D drawings.
This computer model becomes a key component for fully understanding and evaluating the design. Clients may make changes to the proposed design dynamically during our interactive meetings, or review the proposed model at their leisure using the free app on a tablet, smartphone or computer.
Upon fully approving the final design of the house, basic drawings are generated (including site plan, floor plans, roof plan, elevations, and door and window schedules) for bidding and appraisal purposes.
