Help! My builder is asking me so many questions! How can a designer help with new construction?
A designer will create a plan for you so that all of these questions have been answered before your builder even asks! You will receive a comprehensive design guide that has everything from space planning, and detailed drawings of built-ins to flooring and paint colors. When all of these decisions are made in advance all you need to do is turn the information over to your builder and allow them to order materials. This creates a streamlined process and eliminates major delays in construction.
