Congratulations on building your new home in Carlton Landing! As fellow homeowners there, my family has created so many wonderful memories in our home there, and I’m excited to help you set the stage for your own family’s memories at Lake Eufaula. I’m sure you have lots of questions on the process, so don’t hesitate to send those questions my way if you don’t see them answered here. Building can be a daunting proposition but we hope to make this as seamless and enjoyable as possible. My job as designer is to bring together all your inspiration and big ideas to life. Part of that is also setting the expectation for how the process unfolds.

Your lot has been chosen, you’ve landed on a floorplan and the budget is coming together with the builder. Now my job as the designer begins. During an initial zoom/phone call/meeting, we will discuss overall expectations for the build and to request any inspiration images you’re collecting. You’ll also be provided with an indepth questionnaire to answer to help me get to know you better. Inspiration is important - and open communication is invaluable.

I'll take all the information from your questionnaire, inspiration images, and our conversations to prepare the presentation on what your home is going to look like. Everything from lighting, tile, paint, wallpaper, and more. I'll provide elevations so you'll get a comprehensive view of your lovely new home.

If you've chosen to purchase furniture through Pencil Shavings Studio, this is when we'll also finalize your selections and get everything in the works in time for move-in.

All the moving parts come together to build your lake house and as completion approaches, it's time to schedule your move-in. If you've chosen furniture with Pencil Shavings Studio, the goal is to make it as simple as possible for you to move straight into your home in Carlton Landing with minimal fuss. The delivery team and I will put every item purchased in its place and prepare it for your arrival.
