The Design Process
1. Initial Consultation: We invite our clients to meet us at our office in a restored 1935 cottage at 214 Pine Avenue, Anna Maria. You will meet personally with Dan Gagne to share your vision of your Island or Longboat Key home.
2. Conceptual Sketch: Gagne Construction will provide you with a preliminary design sketch. With Dan Gagne’s extensive experience in coastal construction, he can guide you through the sometimes complicated building codes and regulations so that your vision can become a reality.
3. Estimated Budget: Gagne Construction will provide you with an estimated budget for your project once the preliminary design sketch is approved. Our team at Gagne Construction goes to great lengths to maximize and optimize your budget dollars while creating the project you envisioned.
4. Architect’s Color Rendering: Upon approval of both the preliminary design sketch and the estimated budget, we will create a hand drawn and color rendering of the front elevation of your proposed renovation or new home. This is when your project begins to come to life.
5. Firm Budget. Once both the preliminary design sketch and architect’s color rendering are approved we will finalize the budget for your project. During the construction process you may possibly make changes or choose materials or products that could alter the final budget. Gagne Construction will be in constant communication with you throughout the project to help you maximize your budget.
