Session Focus

Fast-Track Design defines the basic outer envelope of your home, including it's size, shape, roof type, and some special features including dormers, porches, and overhangs. This dovetails with Timber Trails' material kits, ready-to-assemble packages, and shells for your cabin, cottage, or tiny house.

How it Works

Your session is an easy and affordable means for your home design and building project, including:

  1. Research – We ask you to share a few samples of your favorite floor plans and home designs – whether Timber Trails' or others – to help us better understand your interests and motivations.
     
  2. Design – Knowing your interests and preferences, our "adaptive design" process blends your favorite designs and slims down your favorite styles to smaller sizes while retaining real-life practicality.
     
  3. Review – We review the overall form of your home, and determine if there's anything to tweak or other ideas to explore. We can quickly make additional models for your side-by-side comparison.
     
  4. Delivery – You will receive seven images: 2 beauty shots and 5 elevation drawings as high-quality JPEG images within 1 day of your Fast-Track session.

We allocate 90 minutes for each Fast-Track Design session the up-front research, 1-hour design session, and final review.
