Custom Build

These lines on paper are going to become a house???? HELP!!

Not sure which one of those lines is a window…or a pocket door…let alone if you want either where it is??  Heather can help.

Heather Draper, Principal Designer, has worked on a number of new build and full scale renovation projects. Heather will take the drawings provided by your architect, and wash them over with your ideal furnishings and cabinetry in mind. This can lead to lightly larger doors, closets in a different place or a sink on the other side of the room. With the final furnished home in mind Heather can see & advise on the changes needed to be sure that “great snuggle chair” fits PERFECTLY in your bedroom…with no unsightly view of the biffy!

From tweaks to the floor plan to a dream custom kitchen, right down to the perfect entry rug, engaging Heather at the drawing stage is the ideal way to be sure your dream home TRULY becomes your dream home.

Heather’s Role in a New Build/ Full Scale Renovation is to:

Review drawing provided by Architect and advise changes as needed to achieve the final goal with furnishings in mind.

Create drawings as needed for all aspects of custom millwork and interior/exterior finishes

Source/Select and Propose materials suitable for the project

Review/Discuss/Revise specifications and Drawings as need

Oversee quoting process to ensure an accurate and fair budget is achieved and items are ordered as discussed & expected by the client

Discuss/Review project scope/materials/details with all trades on site to ensure the finer details are thought out and understood prior to construction

Be available as needed to solve the inevitable problems.

Provide “translation” services between clients ( who may not speak construction) and the trades ( who seem to ONLY speak construction) to ensure clients have the knowledge they need to make a informed decision

Have a great time doing what she loves!

Realistic Budget

We mentioned we believe in quality right??  and while budgets can vary greatly a good rule of thumb is to expect to spend 100-200% of your lots value when working with Heather. We do employ a splurge/save mentality, but we always advise investing well, ie birch box cabinetry. A dream home does not become a dream home with out the special touches, be they a crystal chandelier or waterfall marble countertops. We will not blow the budget but we will advise you to invest in things you will love for a lifetime, and know those items have value/cost associated.

Renovation/New Build Project Management

We have a GREAT relationship with the fine men of Mountains Edge Renovations ( one just may be Heather’s husband) and they are our preferred contractor. As with all things in life we know the cheapest price is not always the best deal, that is VERY true with one’s contractor,we know these guys are good, not the cheapest, maybe the best.
