Re: Proposals loose vs. tight

Hi, I think everything should be subject to change, within reason, of course. I have a friend who recently completed a $300,000 commission and kept the proposal loose. Good thing, as he couldn't get a certain thing he needed (no one makes it) and had to substitute something else.
By the way, this is someone who thinks things through and is quite thorough in his proposals. With commissions of this size, that's a must, with 32 page contracts and lawyers involved. Not to mention deadlines and having structural engineers sign off on the plans.
By the way, if they like your proposal you've got more power than you think!
Have a great day,
