Sample Specification Sheet

This is where the process gets exciting!  After a careful interview, I make recommendations based on your preferences and playing style.  This is just a starting point.  Together, we explore numerous options and complete the sheet. 
After careful consideration and the specifications are finalized, a firm quote can be given.  Once the quote is accepted, the customer signs the Commission Agreement and submits it along with the deposit.
Upon receipt of the deposit and Commission Agreement, the customer's price and position in the build queue are locked in.
