Traversing the design and construction process, even for an experienced hand, is sometimes daunting. When dealing with unfamiliar terminology and professionals in the field of architecture, engineering, and construction, project owners may need some guidance along the way and, at times, wish they had a relative in the building business to provide them with some helpful tips. That is the purpose of this book: to offer project owners who are new to the design and construction process some firsthand experience from someone who has been in this business for 40 years, and, for owners who have been involved with many projects, perhaps shed some new light on problems they may have encountered previously and wish to avoid in the future. Of fundamental importance in this process is the establishment of a good working relationship with the architect’s team and the contractor. In the heat of a stressful moment during either design or construction, these strong relationships will prevail, resulting in a reasonable approach to a reasonable solution. Being able to view that difficult situation from the perspective of others is another trait that takes on added importance when hundreds or tens of thousands of dollars are at stake
