Casting A Vision
Todd himself fields inquiries from new clients, answering initial questions and setting up a consultation. At this meeting, Todd’s first questions encourage clients to visualize their new home.
Todd will ask you the important questions: “What do you want? What’s your style? How do you want to live?”
Subsequent consultations help define a client’s vision, which is further informed through discussions about such critical issues as land, budget, and timeline.
Developing A Plan
Architecture & Design
Todd has an eye for layout. With this in mind, he often produces preliminary sketches for a client before the architect ever gets on the clock. But at some point, an architect becomes critical to the process.
“There’s always a fundamental structure to consider,” Todd says. “If it’s a new home, we want to apply a client’s vision to timeless architectural models. If it’s a remodel, we want updates that maintain the strengths of a home’s original design.”
Next, a designer will drill down even more details about a client’s lifestyle and aesthetic to create a cohesive, functional style.
“A home’s individual character is achieved through details,” Todd says.
Once design plans are in place, the client will sign the construction contract. Trustworthy relationships with suppliers are key to craftsmanship, cost-effectiveness, and timeliness. That is why Todd has been working with most of his suppliers for more than 13 years.
“I expect trust, talent, and efficiency in my team members,” Todd says. “I hire the same folks for a client’s home that I hire for my home.”
Architecture and design plans help nail down the budget as accurately as possible before breaking ground.
