How long will my project take? That answer varies wildly depending on the scope of your project and subject to your availability for meetings. Each project is unique but general guidelines are below:
Design time - 4-8 weeks+
The earlier the better! Many people call us just a few weeks or even after they wish their projects to begin. Although we can accommodate rush projects at times, the best results both design and budget wise come from careful planning and time to consider your options.
Product Lead times
Now that everything is decided we have to purchase all of the materials:
The design is done, all items are purchased - but there is still time to bid and install!
Many people forget to plan this time into their overall timeline. The average time to bid out a drawing set is 2-3 weeks. Thereafter if items in the bid are too high, design changes often are considered and items re-bid. This takes additional time. We can include allowances for exact selections and get the contractors bidding while we finish our shopping to save time!
General Construction/Installation Timelines:
My motto is: whatever the contractor tells you add at least 2 weeks! In reality, things can go wrong, and unexpected repair needs can be found at demolition. For furniture projects, product may be back ordered or arrive damaged. We will help manage your expectations but keep in mind things tend to take longer than you expect. If you are ready for the possibility of delays you will feel less frustrated along the way! General guidelines only are below for some common projects:
In general, most projects take much longer and cost more than you see on TV. We are here to educate you early on so you can make the best decisions for your design and budget!
