Customers often think that estimates and plans can be done on the spot.  I could do that if I chose to do a poor job.  However, offering someone a quality plan and an accurate estimate takes additional time and work.

I often start with photos of the site, and a rough diagram that includes measured dimensions.  The next step happens between my ears, as I try to combine attractive design with practical design.

Then it is time for some “homework.”  Using several computers I plot out my design using CAD software.  Then onto other software to create an actual quote.

Some estimates are simple and can be done in a half hour.  More complicated estimates, like a kitchen or bath, can take 4 to 7 hours.  I want to give my customer the best possible outcome.  Good outcomes not only come from good work but also from good planning.
