On this segment of The Marc and Mandy Show, Jobie Mallett from Little Star Renovations shares his design process for projects. Keep reading for Jobie’s expert advice. 

Q: What does a consult with Little Star Renovations involve?
Jobie Mallett: I want to talk to you quickly about design. Design before build. It’s not something I was a believer in about ten to 15 years ago. I was a believer in putting our creative juices together, starting a project as soon as possible, and figuring it out as we went along. The result of all of that was strained relationships with the clients, and really, when I stood back and looked, I’d think to myself that I wished I had done things differently. So now, when I show up to meet a client for the first time, I don’t often bring my tape measure. The reason being: I’m not there to give a fast-and-loose estimate on their project. I’m there primarily to listen to the client’s dreams and budget, and see if the dreams and budget correlate. Then, I can give my opinion on that. But what I’m really wanting to do by the end of that meeting is encourage the client to enter into a design phase. And the design phase has a whole array of deliverables. But basically, it’s created to explore and think-tank all the design options, to then see the cost of those options, and see if those two then come together.
