Home Addition Design Process

From a simple idea to shovels in the ground

While the exact process of each residential addition design project is unique to the project, the vast majority of addition projects follow this pattern:

  • 1. Free Consultation

    Lasting about an hour, each residential design project begins with a free consultation; giving everyone an opportunity to get familiarized with the project and each other.

  • 2. Prepare a Fee Proposal

    We will prepare a fee proposal containing all the important details of project delivery, including project timeline, fees involved & a couple examples of similar projects.

  • 3. Define Your Program

    Every project is different and our approach will shift depending on the project goals. We start by asking that complete a renovation questionnaire that will help to define your goals and provide a road map to where you want to be.

  • 4. As-Built Drawing Creation

    Renovations require detailed on-site measurements and using Revit BIM technology, we’ll model out your entire home using the same wall, floor & roof systems your house is built from. Measuring to an 1/8″ accuracy will help us to understand exactly what the conditions are like and minimize structural expenses and costly change orders during construction derived from oversights.

  • 5. Schematic Design

    Through a series of schematic sketches and overlays showing the approximate layout, a preliminary floor plan and conceptual massing sketches are presented to you with several options and iterations.

  • 6. Design Development

    With the concepts and iterations narrowed down to one principal direction, we’ll go back to the working drawings and develop all the details and assemblies making sure that each change meets or exceeds the requirements of your local building code & zoning by-law.

  • 7. Building permit Submission

    With all the approvals in place and the required documents all assembled, the permit submission can take place. Depending on the type of project, you can expect to wait between ten days and twelve weeks for the permit to be issued.

  • 8. Construction Drawings & Tendering

    Construction documents describe the micro details of the build and include many things not describe during the macro stage of building permit documents. While not required, this is where the information required for an accurate estimate and all the details of the build are derived.
