commissioning

 Can’t find what you want? Let me build it.

I specialize in custom work. Know what you want? Tell me.
Don’t know what you want? I’ll help you figure it out.

What’s important?

Function, aesthetic, budget and timeline.

How does it work?

We start with a conversation. You tell me what you have in mind. Show me your space
or things you like.

Tell me what you want to spend so I can design in your budget. We can always add on. I’ll help you with creative solutions to fit your needs and your aesthetic. I’ll make sketches and we will reveiw them. All of this can be done in person or via email with photos, whichever suits you best.

Once we define the peramiters of the project and budget, a 10% good faith deposit is paid. I then make more sophisticated drawings on the computer. Most of the details are solidified here. We will look at samples of different wood types, discuss details on the drawings and I will make any necessary changes.

We will start building once I receive a 50% deposit and a signed contract detailing the work. You are welcome to come to the studio and see the work in progress. Depending on the scope of the project, you may want to come by more than once. Most people enjoy seeing the shop and watching the work evolve. Once everything is built, we deliver and install. Final payment is due on delivery. Installation is billed seperately.
