Ranch Project

WEEKLY PROJECT WALKTHRU WITH CONTRACTOR, ARCITECT, AND SUB CONTRACTORS The custom built Ranch is surrounded by thousands of lush acres and beautiful ponds. You may wonder why an interior designer needs to check on the progress of the construction Of this 22k sq ft ranch house project.

As It is crucial to make sure construction is running as scheduled. This all effects when we can order & install materials. Any set back in construction sets back delivery of furnishings. I am directly involved in the design of every interior element, usually creating the Autocad drawings for all details, it is my responsibility to make sure all these details are being carried out correctly.

During our visit I noticed a few electrical outlets out of place.  This would have impeded the sliding mirrored doors for the vanity. Easy to move before Sheetrock.  Difficult and expensive later.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This WALKTHRU also involved working thru all AV details and TV placement in each area, as this drives the placement of hidden wiring and cable, and construction of recessed cubicles for TVs prior to Sheetrock.

So needless to say the room space has already been worked out at this point to be able to make these decisions.  ******The reason furniture plans must be done Before construction not AFTER.  Keep coming back for more progress on our Ranch project!
