(Each Step is Independent)
Step 1 (No Charge): We invite you to a 'virtual' video meeting for a 1/2 hour.
I’ll answer your questions in any area of home building (building methods, flood mitigation, drainage, green building, energy performance, solar, rainwater, aging-in-place, shelter-in-place, etc.)
We can talk about your site, your budget, and your design preferences. You can also decide if you feel comfortable adding us to your team.
In our online meeting I can show you examples of our residential work (on your computer or tablet).
If you have plans and send them before we meet, we can discuss them in our online meeting.
To set a time to meet online (we'll explain how) for a 1/2 hour, call 713 . 377 . 4209 (or email).
