The last month has been quiet busy,(hence no blogging) between developing a number of projects from sketch design to planning stage, preparing a few sketch designs for some new projects and also preparing a few fee proposals. Preparing fee proposals at present is definitely the most difficult element of the job at present and worthy of a blog post in itself.
The two projects currently on site are progressing well, the house extension is almost finished, next week, I expect with the nursing home extension roofed and first fix well underway. Clients are happy with the progress and standard of work too. Always pays to use/recommend a good builder, particularly these days where fees are tight.
One project I'm starting to get stuck into at the moment is a one off rural dwelling. The clients are pretty clued in too, have specific requirements, but also open to suggestions/ideas. They have a site with good views and affords good orientation to the house. Its still only at sketch design stage, where ideas are still been thrown about. Its one project I'm looking forward to working on.
