Custom design commissions are accepted based off the clients’ description of the desired project. There is no charge for a preliminary estimate. If the client decides to move forward with a project a design fee will be required based off of the preliminary estimate. Upon approval of a final design plan, applicable fees are required for construction to begin. Specifics as per wood species, metallics, finishes, etc. will be specified in the final design approval. Gerspach Handcrafted Woodworks retains all intellectual property, copyrights and design rights of the project. Therefore, the Projects are NOT works made for hire.
