Some clients find it very difficult to envision their belongings inside a blueprint. Our goal is to ensure that not only your existing furniture fits perfectly, but also assist with the selection of all cabinetry, fixtures and appliances & more are perfectly sourced, installed and executed. We'll work with you to breakdown exactly how your family functions, your needs, wants and desires and take all aspects into account for a seamless transition into your dream home.

From cabinet pulls and appliances to flooring and furnishings.... 

We've got your back from the ground breaking to move-in!

As with all of our non-Packaged Services, the fee for New-Build Assistance & Planning is priced using our simple, flat rate of $80/hour. No hidden fees. No surprises. During your In-Depth Consultation, we''ll discuss the size and scope of your project and all the areas you need assistance with, and we'll calculate the number of hours we anticipate using to provide that assistance in an estimate.  

Payment methods

Currently, we accept all major credit and debit cards-- MasterCard, Visa, Discover & AMEX, as well as Checks, Cash, Wire Transfers and PayPal.

Payments made by Wire Transfer, Debit/ Credit Cards and PayPal are subject to convenience/ transaction / transfer fees, which are not set or controlled by The Better Half and are non-negotiable. All fees charged by payment processors are the sole responsibility of the Client. 

Payment Schedule

We operate on a retainer system-- 50% of our design fees are due when your Client Agreement is signed, and once 75% of that amount has been used, the remaining half is due.

If we are handling any product or furnishing purchases for you, the same payment schedule applies-- 50% of your purchasing/ merchandise budget is due up front, and once your retainer account drops to 25% capacity, the remaining half of your budget is due. 

...easy, peasy!
