About this Episode

As interior design professionals, most of us have big ideas, and frequently we can visualize those concepts long before they are realized. However, clients aren’t typically able to do that. To sell our design ideas and concepts to clients we must be able to show them what we’re thinking. A solid drawing package does just that.

In this episode we learn:
– what elements make up a thorough drawing package
– how a disclaimer can protect you and your business
– what clients do and don’t need to see
– who decides what drawings are required
– why billable hours for drawings are worthwhile
– why negotiating fees with clients is a very bad idea
