Here’s what your designer should consider before

putting pen to paper.

You’ve done your research, you’ve addressed the best design question of “What problem am I trying to
solve?” and you’ve hired your designer. You’re anxious to get your new design. Who wouldn’t be?


But first, there’s something you need to know. Great design requires a lot of background work that you won’t see. Proper planning before you start thinking about floor plans can reduce your risks considerably. Thinking ahead can reduce or eliminate the need for a redesign. There are a few key points that your designer should consider before they begin designing.


Rebuilding Together

Rebuilding Together East Bay-North meets a critical need in our community to improve the lives of low-income seniors, people with disabilities, veterans, and local nonprofit organizations by providing repairs, renovations, and safety modifications to housing. Their mission is to bring warmth, safety, and independence to neighborhoods by revitalizing homes and neighborhood facilities in Berkeley, Emeryville, Albany, and Richmond.
