We can approach our first meeting together in one of two ways:
At an Introduction Meeting, I’ll answer your questions about working with New Leaf, and I’ll get the information I need about your scope of work to provide you with a proposal.
If you have a clear vision of what you want to accomplish and how to go about it, and my travel time is minimal, an Introduction is all we need for our first meeting. This usually takes an hour or less, and is free of charge.
A Consultation Meeting gets you more information right away about moving your project forward, and gives you a better feel for our chemistry working together. We’ll dive right into brainstorming about your project, working together to figure out what you want to prioritize on your wish list, what is practical, whether approaching things in phases makes sense, and more. You can use this information whether we continue working together or not, and the additional time together gives you an even better chance to see if we have good chemistry together. A Consultation meeting typically lasts two hours or longer, and the fee varies depending on the project and the location. I’ll let you know how much it will be when we schedule our meeting.
Then within a week or two I’ll provide you with a proposal for the architectural services that will take you all the way through construction following the rest of the New Leaf process.
