Then helping you to communicate that vision
to the whole team of architects, builders, designers, consultants.....
The crux of the book is organization...Susan not only reminds you to take the time to get organized...but walks you through step by step the process with forms , check sheets, to do lists, meeting notes and ticklers...
Right down to how many binders to keep, what to label them and how to keep them at your fingertips for which meetings!

This was really helpful to see folks...and I am not even building a home.
