The consultation is a fun and relaxing brain storming session. A no-pressure, informal, easy way to get started and have a chat about your project. This is our first chance to get to know each other. We meet at whatever time works for you. This can be in the evening or on a weekend – whatever your schedule allows. We usually schedule about an hour. The time is used for us to try and understand your vision, timeline, and budget.
Our job is to provide you with a solution that fits all three. We’ll ask about your tastes, styles, and why you want to do the project in the first place! We’ll provide you with references and portfolios, and invite you to ask us any questions that you would like to. We’ll look at designs and different types of installations.
At the end of the hour, we will mutually decide if there is a next stage. This does not mean you have to sign up on the spot! Simply that we will both be clear about what or when our next contact will be. Sometimes we are not a good fit for each other and if so it is both our interests not to move forward. Hopefully though, we may be able to work on a design, or schedule a meeting at the stone yard, or set up a time to meet again to review an estimate.
