    建築相談〈無料〉Initial contact/discussion (free)
    First, please contact us by email or telephone. We will arrange a meeting to explain our approach to designing and building, and how we go about our renovation and construction projects. In certain cases, we may be able to show the client examples of past projects. We will also be happy to discuss the project site, the client’s needs and requirements, budget considerations, and any other issues. (We may also be able to assist the client in their search for land or a site.)

Once we have had a meeting to discuss our approach and ideas, the client may consider the proposal and tell us whether or not they wish to proceed. (*Depending on scale and content, the details of the proposal may change.)

    After construction work begins, we will periodically visit the project site on the client’s behalf to monitor whether the construction work is proceeding according to our designs and to assure quality control. We will give the client regular progress updates, will provide actual samples of materials so that they can confirm the color, texture and other elements of these materials, and will make final decisions on other details. We will work to ensure that the project proceeds according to the client’s wishes, and will do everything we can to help the client enjoy the process of watching their renovation or construction project come to completion.
