Is Ten Directions Design Right For You?

Ten Directions Design is a small firm that gives you personal service with modern technical support. When you call about your project, you connect directly to the principal, Alan Ness, architect. He closely monitors all aspects of your project and gives you direct feedback on its status.

When your drawings are made, they are created on CAD software. Using computerized drafting allows us to easily create alternative designs as well as make pinpoint revisions. It also allows us to electronically communicate with surveyors, engineers, and Building Permit Departments.

If you are looking for a designer who will be closely involved in your project, as well as the latest technical support, please consider Ten Directions Design.

There are two ways to begin:

A: initial meeting

Alan will schedule an initial meeting at your home at no charge. This meeting gives him a chance to view your home and ask further questions about your project. Afterwards, he will email you a design services proposal for your project.

B: Two-Hour In-Home Consultation

Are you wondering about the feasibility and costs of a house remodel? Perhaps you could use a short session with an experienced design professional.

Our design consultation provides two hours of contact time in your home with the design principal. This consultation includes pre-meeting research, including locating a City of Seattle property map and King County property information. The design consultation will generate design sketches and/or a list of written options for you. Also, you will receive relevant informational handouts. Finally, there will be recommendations for the next steps to advance your remodel project.

The charge for the design consultation is $590.00. This is a flat fee for up to two hours of time. Any follow-up time will be charged hourly.

There has been very positive feedback for these design consultations. Feel free to inquire about this option for planning your future remodel.

Thank you,
