I included drawings of a kitchen with layout and elevations. All the drawings have been dimensioned. They were drawn on large 11" x 17" paper to 1/2-inch scale but have been reduced down to fit on 11" x 8" paper. The layout of a home is just like laying out a kitchen, so it will look similar but may not include elevations unless you want me to design your kitchen and baths also. I also design closets, pantries, book cases, fireplace mantles, offices, sewing rooms, etc, etc., anything that needs space planning or has a cabinet in it. I included 3 additional photos of bookshelf and mantle designs.
Why are you in a hurry to build one of the biggest investments you'll own? Being rushed isn't a good idea when building a home and I hate to see you get started off on the wrong foot. There's just too many unknowns that can happen that will slow the building process, AND it will happen on your project, especially with fall setting in, and winter on it's way. I've not seen the plans you have and I don't know how many sq. ft. we are talking about here, so I will guess and say 2 weeks to get the 1st preliminary to you. I could finish it earlier than that, but I'm making room in my schedule to accommodate this request, and am very happy to do so, but I just don't know how simple the home is we're talking about, the overall size of the home, and your expectations of revising the plan you have. Will your spouse also be involved in the decision making process? These are the things I don't know, so I'm guessing 2 weeks or less, but if I had your plans in hand and knew your expectations, I could be more realistic. A word from the wise who has seen many, many custom homes built: the moment you get in a hurry and become impatient is the day you shoot yourself in the foot, because from then on, there is only tension, heated words, your blood pressure goes up, and everyone becomes tense. Believe me when I say, You cannot rush the subcontractors or they will retaliate or not show up at all; and you can't rush the builder because he is at the mercy of the subs, the weather, and all the other unknowns. I'm about the only one you can try to rush along, but if a relative dies or other circumstance like that, those things will have to be accommodated first. But I'm not expecting anyone in my family to die anytime soon....knock on wood. I will certainly do my best to accommodate your requests.
