The Storybook ‘Pre-Decision Design Package’, gives our clients the necessary information needed to make an informed decision, without the burden of expensive professional service fees. To do this, Storybook Cottages heavily subsidises this Initial Design Stage, only charging a modest non-refundable deposit from only $1,500, which is later credited back to the client, if they decide to proceed. If at the end of this stage a client does not proceed, they remain commitment free, but unable to use the copyright information supplied. This gives people a wonderful opportunity to receive a Storybook Cottage Design (individually tailored to their needs), giving consideration to the budget, site constraints, owner participation, and so on, before making a decision. Overall project budgets vary from job to job & can include a multitude of inclusions depending on the clients requirements. Storybook will discuss the ‘Standard Inclusions’ with you which can be varied on a job by job basis. Below is a typical example of a Storybook Pre-Decision Design Package.
