What's Involved in starting New projects?
A few typical questions Rich answers for you during these first meetings include:
- How will you use the room?
- What activity is going to take place in the room?
- How many people should the room accommodate?
After identifying the activities, Rich will determine the different elements that need to be addressed. There may a need for room modification (for example, to accommodate a multi-puropse room, making a kitchen & family room into one large room instead of two separate rooms, you may need to move a wall) or you may need to modify lighting and electrical, add a media & technology center, etc.
Following the identification of the activity and determining the needed modifications, Rich then creates a floor plan of the room. See the illustration below:
This sample room below has the main function of entertaining causally, also with the ability to watch a large screen TV. The requirements for this project were: seating for 6 to 8 people comfortably, a secondary TV area, and the primary area of the fireplace gathering on a somewhat formal setting. The floors are wood so a large custom area rug is the foot print for the room.
