Design Concepts At Chad of All Trades, Inc. we are firm believers that designing your next project is imperative to the success of your overall project and budget. By having a well thought out design, there will be no room for ambiguity. When the design is clear and concise, it will make it easier to accurately define crucial timelines that have been the proverbial crux tension between homeowners and contractors. In fact, all tension can be minimized on a construction project by a well thought out design because the design also helps client and contractor agree on a level of expectation, and the quality of the finished product. In other words, the project becomes more like putting together a puzzle where the end result is clear and there is only one right solution and no left over pieces; as opposed to creating a painting where the outcome is in the eye of the beholder and each eye has its own means and quality of finish.
