Getting Started

One-on-one meetings with Everett, the owner of Northcape Design-Build, can take place on your property or at Northcape Design-Build’s Sunapee location and allow him to understand and evaluate your project needs by listening to your vision, asking intuitive questions and leaving you with a Design Questionnaire to fill out at your own leisure.

Taking the information discussed at your meeting incorporated with your answers to the Design Questionnaire, Everett will develop a preliminary design program custom tailored to your project. A design program includes a list of your project requirements and a rough estimate of the budget required to create your vision. Estimates are based on recently completed projects by Northcape Design-Build that matches your project in scope and size.

A second meeting is scheduled to discuss the differences between the initial budget estimate and the realistic amount you would like to invest in your project. More often than not, we are able to modify the design program requirements and arrive at a compromise that not only satisfies your design desires but keeps your level of investment at a comfortable place. Making sure that the project you envisioned is also the project you can afford is a high priority for us at Northcape Design-Build and before the design phase even begins, we make sure they are one and the same.
