CUSTOM COMMISSIONS - About 35% of my work is purely custom design. I welcome this type of work but the patron must understand that work of a custom nature can be extra  demanding in both design and fabrication time and will consequently command a higher price than my stock designs.  Custom work shop labor is billed at $60 per hour. 

    Each custom commission is unique.  Some are simple modifications to my existing designs while other commissions are for completely new designs within my "High Style Arts & Crafts" design style.  

    There is a substantial demand for custom commissions by many people that are interested in my work.  Due to this and the normal demands of producing my regular stock designs, I must bill modest fees for design time spent on custom work so that I can keep my regular handmade furniture prices competitive to all.  

In the interest of fairness to both me and my perspective patrons, my terms and conditions for any custom project are as follows:

TERMS & CONDITIONS FOR CUSTOM DESIGN WORK  

1. Initial consultations are free.  In the initial consultation I usually try to "ball park" an approximate cost for the particular item a patron is seeking.  This "ball park" figure is by no means a price quote but it enables the patron to assess if my fees are within their budget for such a project.

2. Design time for the production of furniture sketch plans and shop detail drawings if required are billed at $40 per hour and are in excess of the cost of fabrication.   A realistic estimate is always given for how much design time any given project will require prior to any work commencing.  

3. Upon approval of any custom design an approximate delivery date is agreed upon and the rest of the process follows my regular terms and conditions which are listed at the bottom of my "How to Order" page.                    Hit Counter
