Dorinda & Tim King as seen in L•O PROFILE

Dorinda and Tim King were featured in the May/June issue of L•O PROFILE Magazine for their opinion: “What is one secret to cutting costs when building your dream home?”

An experienced designer on the project at the blueprint stage of building can save you thousands of dollars in the duration of the projects. When the homeowner, designer and builder/architect can sit down together in the planning stage, we can provide scaled furniture layouts, appliance, light fixture and cabinet options, just to name a few. This can maximize function, minimize wasted space, and quicken the building time by making crucial decisions in advance. The little things that become an afterthought to most are what we focus on.

Harris Designers have a vast knowledge of products, materials and resources (woods, stones, floorings, etc.) that will achieve the look you want for the least cost. We also provide the painting and lighting schedules room by room for the builder/installers, avoiding costly errors in proportion, scale and color. This pre-build scheduling provides exact locations of wiring for all lighting, floor plugs etc. in coordination with furniture layouts. This alone can save thousands on relocating wires and redoing drywall or worse! For example; to center a chandelier over the dining table so that it doesn’t have to swag, or making sure floor plugs are under furniture and not in the middle of the room, or that a wall switch isn’t in the middle of a picture wall, etc.

Most of our clients are hardworking people who have a business to run and can’t be on the jobsite. Because we work so closely with the client, we can represent them on the jobsite to answer questions that arise when they cannot be there, keeping the process moving smoothly and on schedule. Time is money!

Just for fun – The vase (pronounced /ˈvɑːz/, /ˈveɪs/, or /ˈveɪz/) is an open container, often used to hold cut flowers. It can be made from a number of materials including ceramics and glass. The vase is often decorated and thus used to extend the beauty of its contents. Vases are defined as having a certain anatomy. Lowest is the foot, a distinguishable base to the piece. The design of the base may be bulbous, flat, carinate or another shape. Next, the body, which forms the main and often largest portion of the piece. Resting atop the body is the shoulder, where the body curves inward. Then the neck, where the vase is given more height. Lastly, the lip, where the vase flares back out at the top. All these attributes can be seen in the pictures at right. Many vases are also given handles, though no examples are shown here. Today, the shapes of vases have evolved from the conventional ones to modern designs and shapes. Source Wikipedia
