Design and construction is an art, not a science. Designs are graphic interpretations of people’s needs and desires. Those graphics then need to be defined by all kinds of constraints: budget, timeframe, opinions, municipal limits…all the things that generally take the fun out of dreams. It’s difficult sometimes to take the imaginary – the project design – and keep the vision alive through those constraints. Every project has those filters, like choosing your dream career then a college from a brochure. Hoping you feel the same way about your choices after applications, tuition, roommates, professors and years of attendance. It is a process that involves so many dynamics.
Working with Straight Line has consistently had the same experience: The Company focuses on the dream of the project owner, and assesses the constraints. There is consistent communication, articulation of benchmarks and events or changes and overall focus on the projects vision and final product. Straight Line becomes part of the team dedicated to final success.
I regularly tell my clients that while I know how a pair of scissors work and I can see a picture in a magazine that I like, it’s not a great idea for me to cut my own hair! Construction today is represented by big-box advertisements of do-it-all-yourself, endless reality TV shows turning quick profits on renovation jobs all from the front seat of your freshly washed truck. 30 minutes to profit and flawless results. Those things are scissors and pictures of hair. There is some truth, but not much reality.
You wouldn’t scrub in for your own surgery. You wouldn’t repaint your car at home. You wouldn’t buy a tractor and farm to grown corn for one dinner. If you are looking to have something done right then hand it over to a professional, all of it!
Straight Line will see you are heard, and honestly communicate the costs and expected results. They are a consistent provider and exceed expectations. I value working with them and look forward to future projects.
