You are here: Palumbo Design » Process

In the traditional method of developing a home, an owner contacts an architect to design the project, which would then be priced by contractors who have no input. After pricing, the contractors try to pitch the lowest bid to gain the contract over competitors, which can be more than the owner’s budget. This leads the owner to paying an architect again for a redesign in hope of finding a price within their budget. This is not cost effective, smart or efficient. It takes a master to coordinate the elements of a properly designed home to ensure that it gets done right and that happens with every Palumbo Design.
