COMPLETION STAGES


At Loveday Designs, we work hard to design the home that meets your family's needs. We do that by spending time with our customers and getting to know exactly what their needs are. We meet with our clients on at least 4 occasions as outlined below. This gives us plenty of opportunity to make corrections to the design before the final plans are delivered.


INITIAL MEETING: Here we will establish the program that will guide the project. Usually some very rough "bubble plans" and massing type elevations will be sketched. Just to make sure we're heading in the right direction. bubble plan bubble plan
