In many ways, designing and building a home is very complicated. But in at least one way, it is very straightforward. A house cannot be a dream home unless you fully understand the clients needs. Every luxury home should be unique to its occupants. When designing a home, start with asking a lot of questions. Talk with them, listen to their needs, understand their wants, and help to translate those into a design and plan. Questions about how you live day-to-day in your home are the key. From the answers to these questions, we will create a list of priorities, which we then work with to determine what the right size and level of quality needs to be.
The contract documents set out what work must be done, and how, and under what conditions it is to be done. They identify the contractors obligations and liabilities and form the contractual agreement to do the work for the stated price or at the agreed rates. Many if not most financial problems in building originate in inadequate or unclear tender and contract documents, often culminating in disputes between the client and the contractor over what is included in the price for the work.
