After brief, I go and survey (measure) the area in detail and sketch alongside. Photos help to remember. Concept stage usually takes 2weeks to present back to client. Concept is made up of drawing the area in plan and elevation form – no need for sections at this stage. It is then drawn with new layout, colour/s, specs and new build with annotations. A concept board is put together and after many calls, visits and liasing with suppliers and builder, a date is set to present. During the two weeks, a lot of calls are made to me via the client, about extras wanted and how they cannot see where I will be able to fit the extra storage etc, etc. Leave it to me, I say. But really, leave it to me!!
