At Artisan, it is a collaborative process, we start with your “want list”, your building site topography, view orientation, etc., then utilizing all the available information, design a floor plan that best fulfills your design dreams. Upon completion of the initial floor plan we meet again for presentation. You can take as much time as you wish to study the floor plan, then when you are ready you can show us your desired changes and additions. We will edit the plan, then repeat the process. Once perfected to your approval, we will illustrate the exterior views for your review, again repeating the collaborative approach. Once the floor plan, exterior illustrations and basic amenities are complete and have your approval, we can move to the next phase.
Next – With the preliminary plan and basic specifications now ready, we will prepare a preliminary budget. Each Line Item is broken down for you so you will get a clear picture of how much you are spending for each item. There are slightly over 50 line items on most projects. We will help you adjust costs on each line item as needed. Once you approve the budget, we can submit the preliminary plans to the Community Association for preliminary approval.
The time frame for plan development to this point can be as little as 3 weeks, depending on your review and approval response.
Next – With the Association input, we will continue developing the plans, provide documents for lender approval, Planning and Building department approval, construction contracts, specifications, site plans, landscaping plans and all other documentation required to start construction.
