FOR RESIDENTIAL AND BUILDING UPGRADE SERVICES

Initial Meeting

Email me at info@donnavercoe.com with your request about your project. I will answer back with a few questions about your project. After I receive your response, we can book an initial design meeting. This appointment has a cost of $300 for an approximate 1 hour to 1 1/2 hour visit, payable prior to the meeting. This payment will be deducted from the first invoice should we proceed with your project.

The Agreement

After our initial meeting and we all want to proceed on to the next step, I write up a Letter of Agreement, where I describe the services you are requesting and detail the payments required, etc. After you sign that, we can get started on your project.

Fees are detailed with parameters as noted in the Agreement.

Design fees generally include:
1. Design concept and research including concept boards
2. Planning and detailing including floor plans and renders if required
3. Colour Application including paint specifications
4. Furniture and Materials including specification sheets
5. Quotes including pricing from suppliers.

Communication

I prefer e-mail to phone calls or texts, because I’m often out driving, on job sites, or in meetings. I prefer to use texting only if it’s urgent, as it is not a good way to reference and keep record of our interactions and messages. Please note that all correspondence, including texting and email, is billed if project is done on an hourly basis. I cannot do weekend meetings, but I can do a late afternoon meeting during the week, no later than 6:00 pm with a one hour limit.
