who it’s for
Do you want to build your next home from the ground up so that every detail is perfect for your family?
Are you a builder in need of a designer to help create the layouts of your new homes and select every finish and fixture?
If you answered ‘yes’ to either of those questions, we could be a great team for building together!
How it works
Step 1: The Initial Consultation
1: The Initial Consultation
Flat fee of $200 for up to 90 minutes
This is the first meeting, where Client + Designer + Builder are all present and we talk about the initial decisions that need to be made for your home. Are you choosing an existing floor plan that the builder offers a package for? Are we designing a custom floor plan? What’s your overall building budget? During the consult, our designer, Becky will talk with you about your project goals and dreams. She will explore your wants, needs, budget, scope, style, and get acquainted with your plan. Depending on the builder’s process, this meeting could include only very early details, or we could have a building schedule laid out and a move-in date predicted. We’ll be flexible to accommodate the needs of your specific project
After the initial consultation, Becky will draft and send to you a project proposal and Letter of Agreement. These documents lay out all expectations for the course of the project and give you a better idea of the design costs to be associated. We're happy to walk through these documents with you and explain each piece. Any questions you may have are absolutely fair game.
Step 2: The Design Phase

Hourly at $100 per hour
During this phase, Becky will work behind the scenes with directly with you and your home builder to develop a comprehensive design plan that suites your project needs and budget. Then she will meet with you personally to present the designs and propose selected products that meet your budgetary goals. These proposals are very important, as your approval on items means they will be added to your list of pieces that we will eventually be ordering. Take these meetings seriously, and come prepared to make decisions on as much as possible. Keep in mind that we am VERY understanding and empathetic, and will always listen to your questions, comments and concerns. But also remember; the faster we make decisions, the faster you will get to enjoy your finished space!!

When everything comes to life! This is such an exciting time in the process because you finally see our collaborative design ideas and conversations come to life. Purchasing product can happen quite quickly. However, waiting for all ordered products to arrive to our preferred receiving warehouse can take several weeks or months. It’s crucial for all items to be received prior to beginning installation, to ensure a pleasant installation process. Installation will be scheduled to happen as fast as possible, with the timeline depending on our clients’ and contractors’ availability.
