Question: How can we be sure we will be happy with our finished addition when we can’t picture what it will look like from working drawings?
Answer: This is a common difficulty for many clients. When considering such a large investment in their home, clients need to be aware and satisfied with the look and layout of the final project before getting started.
During the design process, clients are encouraged to gather pictures from magazines, books, and other homes to communicate different features that they like and want incorporated into their project. This helps with understanding their priorities, sense of style and general goals for the project.
Using this information, a 3D CAD drawing can be produced which provides a picture of what the finished project will look like. The software also can take the client on a virtual tour of the entire project. The clients’ selections for flooring, wall colors, windows, type and style of cabinets, etc. are able to be implemented and displayed in the 3D views which are almost like seeing your project on television. This process generally satisfies most concerns about understanding the design.
Being able to comprehend the project layout is a very important step in getting the finished project that you desire. A conscientious remodeler will work with you to make sure that you have a thorough understanding of the scope of the project and that it meets your needs and desires.
