If the due diligence has not been this thorough then there is a good chance you will not get your dream home design. No matter how creative it is if it is not what you imagined then it is a failed design. I am not suggesting taking away creative freedom only that any expectations have to be communicated. Make sure the designer is asking all the right questions or make sure you volunteer them. Alternatively just consider another designer because it is hard to correct a design that heads down the wrong path. Only when the scope of the design has been completely defined should the design drawing begin.
Sometimes even with all the necessary communication the design is still not what was expected. Unfortunately this is often do to the designer substituting their preferences. That is another reason to define what is expected. If it was discussed there is no excuse that it was never communicated. Stand your ground even if it means starting the design over. A designer has a responsibility to a client to inform them if they think they are making a mistake. Once the client knows why you are concerned hopefully they will agree. It is never acceptable to just ignore a clients wishes or substitute your own preferences.
The plans need to meet the appropriate codes ordinances and subdivision restrictions where it will be built. Once any revisions are completed construction sets can be run. Additionally the foundation and structural should be engineered. So to review the design process since it might seem intimidating or overwhelming design conference meeting(s) preliminary design meeting finalized design meeting and construction sets. Seems less so hopefully. Primarily it is that there are so many decisions to make. So do yourself a favor and do your homework so you have fewer to make all at once. Also plan ahead and allow a proper amount of time for the design process. It can vary considerably based on the designer and the market but two months at a minimum and preferably three months.
It might have a living space that encourages people to talk or read not just watch television or surf the Internet. Its energy efficient filled with natural light and designed for easy flow among rooms and access to the outside." North in this interview with The Calgary Herald says "I think the boom of the big-house era is coming to an end. So those houses will be less desirable and valuable as time goes on. Expect a shift to smaller more energy-efficient homes North says and a move away from homes on the fringes of cities. A decade ago a 5000-sq.-ft.
