High quality and well composed renderings provide clients with the ability to see a fully developed design prior to construction. When used with traditional presentation materials, such as samples and mood boards, your clients will have a much clearer picture of your design intent with a higher likelihood of approval and confidence overall.
When a rendering is first commissioned by a designer, developer, or client, I ask for all material specifications (aka. furnishings, fabrics, paint colors, trim profiles, accessories, artwork, etc.), dimensioned floor plans, existing condition photographs, and anything else that may impact the level of detail and design intent. The more information provided upfront, the easier it will be to estimate the amount of time it will take to model and formally process the rendering.
Once I receive all necessary information I provide an estimate for the amount time I think it will take me to produce the high-resolution image(s). Upon approval of the estimate, signed Agreement, and payment of Retainer, the project will be preliminarily modeled into Chief Architect and a 'quick rendering' will be sent for review. This is when the details are tweaked prior to processing the Final Design.
Virtual Design Assistance
Are you super busy, but not quite at the point of hiring an in house assistant? I can help. My background and experience provides an innate understanding of the building industry, design, and documentation. I regularly assist fellow designers with projects and documentation and I feel confident that I can help you!
We are all busy and sometimes those DIY videos are just too time consuming. If you're an Interior Designer, who owns (or thinking of purchasing) Chief Architect or Home Designer, but can't quite master the software on your own, I can help. I've been using Chief Architect for years, with previous experience using both Revit and AutoCAD LT. I know the tricks and tidbits that will help you easily transition to the intuitive world of Building Information Modeling (BIM).
Interior, Residential, & Renovation Design
In addition to my Rendering, Virtual Assistance, and Chief Architect Training services, I help motivated homeowners who are facing new construction or major renovation (locally, long distance, and virtually). I take the project from conceptual ideas to detailing every facet of the design and final furnishings. From initial in person consultation, to drawing, modeling, renderings, mood boards, and product selection, I handle every detail and make the process as smooth as possible.
Nothing makes me happier than when my client says “You made my dream home better than I ever anticipated.”
