DESIGN PROCESS

BEFORE MEETING WITH YOUR DESIGNER

The most helpful thing you can do before your meeting with your designer is to know what you want. Anything that you can bring in picture form is appreciated, and be sure to bring pictures of what you are expecting the exterior to look like. Its perfectly acceptable to not know all the answers, just knowing that you have thought through the information is extremely helpful.

Be prepared to discuss these things:

  • Square Footage

  • Required Rooms

  • Unnecessary Spaces

  • Style you like

  • Budget Parameters

  • Building Site

After we sit down and go over all your information we can give you a quote for our services. Upon your agreement we will begin the design process.

PHASE I - PRELIMINARY DESIGN

PHASE I - PRELIMINARY DESIGN

We will prepare preliminary documents consisting of the main floor plan layout for your approval.  This phase establishes design objectives, sizes and approximate square footage. Once the preliminary floor plan is approved, then we prepare the Front Elevation for your approval.

This phase of the process further develops and refines the floor plan and elevations. It also consists of preparing the supporting documents, such as the roof plan and the site plan.

PHASE II - DESIGN DEVELOPMENT

Once the design development documents are approved, we will prepare the Architectural Construction Documents.  These plans shall be sufficient to obtain local building permits.

PHASE III - FINISHING TOUCHES

FINAL PLANS WILL INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING DETAILED & DIMENSIONED PLANS:

COVER SHEET

ELEVATIONS

FLOOR PLANS

ROOF PLAN

FOUNDATION PLAN

SITE PLAN (IF NEEDED)

The information on this page is a basic layout of the design process, it is a baseline starting point for how the design process usually goes. 

Thoroughness, knowledge, and a passion for home design are just a few of the qualities that really makes JBA Designs stand out.
