Q: How can homeowners safely engage an architect to plan their renovation?
A: We look for creative approaches to ease the stress during these worrisome times. We follow CDC guidelines with masks and proper social distancing for site visits, but homeowners can also send us a detailed video for a virtual tour. We’ll produce some initial drawings from that video, then host a shared-screen conference with our clients and, if appropriate, one of our preferred builders. Together, we’ll discuss every aspect of the existing house and brainstorm the most effective renovation using sketching software to “draw” new ideas onto each frame.
