How to Choose a Residential Designer
So, you’re finally ready to take the first steps along the path of home design! Beginning the process can feel like an uphill battle and it’s hard to know where to start.
If you view this process as though you are hiking a mountain you will see the necessary steps required to prepare yourself for the journey, plan appropriately for a smooth ascent, and select the right guides to lead you to your destination.
This is where your journey begins.
There are MANY paths to the final destination of a new home. All paths will get you there, but where they differ is in degree of difficulty.
You want your process to be as easy as possible, with the understanding that the path of home design and build is inherently arduous. Yes, it is rewarding, enlightening, and beautiful! And, also arduous. Do not be fooled.
You want to make sure your designer is fully equipped to walk this path with you!
These are the things you’ll want to prepare ahead of time.
These are the aspects of health and wellness designers often overlook.
Choose a designer who is able to create a home that’s healthy, functional, sustainable, adaptable and flexible for long-term living without the need for costly future renovations to meet the changing needs of your family.
Now it’s time to put together your Team for support!
Your home design drawing is the map that will be used by your entire Team to successfully create your dream home.
Find the designer that will design the best, most creative solutions for YOU!
The Terrain & View
The terrain and available views of your building site should be top priority for your designer.
Many new homes have challenging building sites, especially those in the lake and mountain areas where we specialize.
Designing a home is like putting together a puzzle. Some of the most important pieces of the puzzle come from the environment. Make sure your designer has already established an intimate relationship with Mother Nature and is able to decipher important clues like lay of the land, movement of the sun, seasonal weather patterns, tree coverage, water runoff, and more.
When your home is complete it should look as though it truly belongs on the site it was designed for.
You’ve finally made it!!! Your dream home is complete, and the view is oh so sweet!
