The Consultation


Lou’s Complimentary Consultation Includes

  • One Onsite Meeting
  • A Design Concept Discussion
  • Measurements Taken
  • Potentially A Budget Discussion

Paid Services For Planning Include:


  • Itemized Estimate ( $150.00 minimal )
  • In House & Or Outsourced Design Services
  • Open Line Of Communication

The Estimating Process – $150.00 is our minimum charge for an initial itemized estimation that is developed according to a design concept we discuss at the initial consultation. The purpose of this estimate is to give us a starting point as to what the cost will be for the project. After the initial estimate, there typically will be more planning, consulting, and estimating needed to reach the cost involved to start a project. With the initial estimate, you will find an attached explanation as to what’s involved in the ongoing planning and consultation process.

LEAD RULE

Homes Built Prior To 1978 may have lead-based painted surfaces. Outside of “exclusions to the rule” defined by the EPA, any painted surfaces that may be disturbed from a proposed renovation must be tested for lead by a certified lead rule renovator. If the rule is required for compliance, then there are some particular safety guidelines in regards to the removal of lead-based painted surfaces. We do offer to perform a test for a minimal charge of $150.00. The hiring of Lou Vaughn for the test performed is strictly for the purpose of hiring us for your renovation. This testing will be done after the estimate. Please Go Here for more information pertaining to when the rule applies, and compliance is required, and what the rule states for exclusion.
