Our clients on this project approached us with the dream of creating the perfect home on the lake. Previously, they had been living in the same home for the past 30 years, so they were ready for something new!
The clients lived out of state while the project was in progress, and one of their biggest concerns was how they would be able to stay connected to us and the project once underway since they lived too far to visit regularly. We actually have quite a few clients who build homes while they’re out of state, so we were well-prepared to manage their expectations.
Our management software is formatted so that we keep our construction schedule updated virtually through a private client portal. Clients can login at their convenience, and 10-30 photos are posted each day so that clients can get a really detailed view of the progress.
On the “Must-Haves” List: plenty of space for guests to stay, a resort-like pools and a gorgeous outdoor living. Additionally, living with the lake right in their backyard, they wanted to capitalize on the view and create a seamless indoor/outdoor space.
We had fun getting to know our clients over the course of the project. It’s important that we’re able to spend as much time as possible learning about preferences and dislikes, both in terms of aesthetic and expectations. It helps us understand which architects and interior designers to partner with to really turn that dream home into a reality.
