About What We Do...

We often are asked "What does it cost to make blueprints?" Our answer is that we don't make blueprints.  If you are in need of our consulting services, we can assist you hourly as you develop your overall concept and plan of action. We can help you to develop a vision for your project. Architects provide service. We provide advice. The paper on which we describe our ideas, service and advice are referred to as our "instruments of service". But we are not selling paper, or ink, or "blueprints".  We provide Ideas. Just as the Doctor isn't selling you a scalpel or the lawyer isn't selling you the paper on which a contract is written, we sell Ideas and Designs - we don't provide products.
