Beyond the Pretty Picture: Telling the Home Story (CRAN Spring Series #3)


Welcome to the annual Custom Residential Architects Network (CRAN) spring residential series. In previous years we offered three sessions on one afternoon; this year, our three sessions are on three separate days.

The full value and character of a project often cannot be captured by one, or even a series of still images and there are many types of projects that simply cannot be done justice using visuals alone. Furthermore, for most people the custom residential design process and the distinctions of a fully customized home are often not clear. This presentation will focus on the importance of explaining the process and how best to document the final product.
