I was $30,000.00 over budget with change orders and we were three months behind with a contractor who was not paying his subs. Maybe I couldn’t have spared the money and the time, but I should have done it as soon as possible. It was not that expensive and it made all the difference in the world.
This falls under interior designers work more than an architects I guess, but I was sorely disappointed. No money for an interior designer certainly. I recently had a customer come in who is a lighting director for the film industry. He suggested I needed some cones to further target the lighting correctly. He said he would make a mock up for me, but that hasn’t come to pass.
So still a work in progress.
