We will end our process by taking the project through HPC Design Review. There are usually 2 phases: Pre-App and the Official Meeting. If the project is passed you will receive the CoA.


We will meet to go over the project scope and your expectations. We will also address any initial concerns we believe HPC may have.


We will create options for design plans. This is a process so we typically go back and forth a few times receiving your feedback and making changes. We will create a final design that fits within the HPC guidelines and will allow you to both meet your needs while preserving history.


We hand over our set of Final Construction Documents to you and your builder. We can work with them to create estimates and review the design and selections.

"Sarah and her team have now done two projects for us -- both with stellar results. The first was an interior redesign of a historic home, updating for a new kitchen, bathroom, and living area. The second was for a "tiny house" apartment and office space. Both projects turned out well.
My husband and I appreciate Sarah's friendly attitude and competent design knowledge. We would highly recommend her services."
