Transforming problem houses into Dream Homes

Talking About Project Phases

Two weeks ago, I posted a brief audio blog post about Existing Conditions Drawings, mentioning that it is a “pre-design” service. I realized that I haven’t really spoken much about the phases of a project. I do discuss it on my Process page, and I’ve mentioned various phases in different blog posts, but I haven’t blogged about it.

Since the audio blog was such a success, I thought I would attempt to make a video! Exciting, I know. It took me a couple of days to find a screen cast recording service that  would produce videos in the right format to be hosted by YouTube, and that would allow me to select the portion of the screen I wanted to show. My first attempt was laughable. But ultimately I found a couple of potential solutions.

I sat down and created a short video in which I explain the typical project phases. This screen-cast is a total experiment and I may have to go back and rerecord it with a different microphone. Until that happens, however, here it is in all it’s glory, a little less than five minutes about Project Phases:

I used a free, web-based program called Screencast-O-Matic to make this short video. The video is hosted at YouTube. If this is a success, I may pay for the “premium” Screencast-O-Matic to eliminate that watermark. Does this mean I can now say I’m a film maker?
