The Project Meeting

We are selective with our clients. The initial project meeting is an opportunity to see if we are a good fit for each other. If so, we proceed with the following steps. If we aren’t, we give you someone who is. It’s a win-win.


Agree to a Budget

determining a budget range all parties agree to, trust is earned, values are established, and the target is set.


Rough Concept Design and Estimate

Blackline will design up to three different options for you with
corresponding budget ranges. We want make sure we understand your design needs with respect to the target budget range.


Final Concept Design and Contract

Once the design is narrowed to one final concept, we will provide a lump-sum contract and projected schedule to move forward with



Because we handle the design, once the contract is signed, we’re ready to start permitting
immediately. We handle the architectural, engineering, interior design, material procurement, permitting, and
construction through punchlist. There’s nothing left for you to do but sit back and enjoy your new home.
