Designing a Deck and Choosing a Builder
I'm unsure what the right process is to designing the deck I want to build and hiring the right contractor to do the job. To me it's a little like the chicken and the egg scenario - which comes first?!
Do I hire a contractor to do the work and then let him come up with the design I want? Or do I get someone to design it first? My thought is that I could wind up paying several different people to design the deck before I finally settle on the right design.
I think of those home improvement shows where the homeowner gets a full landscape design presentation from 3 different designers and then picks the one they want to go with. But unless I want to pay 3 different designers (which I don't), I'm not sure how to approach this.
Can anyone help put me on the right path to getting this project under way?!!
