At Step 1, my consultation typically runs for 2 hours at a rate of $400.00.  During this time, here is what you can expect to gain from our 2 hour working session.   I will review the existing spaces, recommend & create a rough draft of a new floor plan if needed, review furniture placement with recommendations, discuss the type of furniture you need to purchase, design any window coverings and built-ins, help you create a comfortable budget for the project and answer all your questions about it.  You’re in a position to judge my expertise and the merit of my ideas.   At the end of the 2 hours we’ll have a thorough plan/vision for the work and your project will already be started.  I know you’ll be pleased with what you learn during the consultation, plus you are able to keep all the notes and ideas we generate even if you decide not to move the project forward with me.
