Once an Archistory order is placed we need to visit the house and meet the owners. We always bring along several examples of completed commissions mounted and framed for you to see. This will help you to decide on the final layout and size of the finished picture. Early on, we discuss which aspect of the house should be drawn. The side of a house facing the road, for example, may not necessarily be the most architecturally attractive or interesting aspect.
Our visit also allows us an opportunity to examine the fabric of the property. The construction methods used, along with the materials and quality of workmanship involved, all give valuable clues about the history of the building and its phases of construction.
