We’ll first listen to your story and make notes on your ideas before providing feedback with design suggestions and building strategies. After we clarify your wish list, we’ll take a look at the property where you’d like to build your home. This plays a major role in the design of your new home, particularly with mountain lots since the landscape will likely determine how we approach your build.
After your initial consultation, we’ll both reflect upon and evaluate the ideas discussed at our meeting. During this time, expect multiple follow-up conversations as we gain a broader understanding of your needs and write our proposal for design services. We want to build a trusting relationship with you, and we’re committed to taking the time necessary to make sure we do.
During this phase, we’re able to develop more accurate project costs using the method known as Building Information Modeling, or BIM. BIM is an intelligent 3D model-based process that sets the stage for your project by collecting and sharing all relevant data, from concept to completion, through a virtual model. This digital representation allows us better analysis and control and provides precise details on the construction and fabrication of your home.
We’ll even give you access to 3D viewer software so you can check in on our progress from the comfort of your own tablet or computer.

The complete Design-Build experience has many benefits since being involved from start to finish adds an extra level of efficiency and greatly reduces the chance for costly errors.
Some of these benefits are:
- Thoughtful integration of room layout, mechanicals, and support functions
- Undivided accountability for design and construction
- Value engineering and constructability from the start
- Subcontractor and supplier input early in the design phase
- Design elements and budgetary goals develop simultaneously
- Greater focus on quality control and quality assurance
