Workrooms Working Long Distance Podcast


There are two different kinds of long-distance relationships; the clients are long distance, or the clients are local and the designer is long distance and wants to use a workroom local to the project. Both working relationships have unique challenges.

  • Measuring

  • Packing, shipping and insurance

  • Travel

  • Who will install?

  • Turn around time

  • Storage
