People remodel their homes to open up rooms, update décor, and add subterranean parking garages to house fully loaded super-hero cars. Learn how to stylishly accommodate your armored vehicles with today's Groupon: for $399, you get a full walk-through and design consultation from Drifting City (up to a $1,500 value).
Drifting City's L.A.- and Athens-based design doyens dole out residential renovation advice to homeowners and house-hunters alike. During a pre-walk-through phone call, design principal Farzad Moré quizzes clients on their domicile dreams, including additions, conversions, or downsizes, before researching zoning and code regulations for their address. Next, a property walk-through takes approximately one hour and helps designers examine the potential lurking within walls and yards and have a brainstorming session so they can offer advice on how to use space more efficiently, make room for new babies, or stylishly repurpose an unfinished basement to make it a luxurious casino-hotel.
Neither a real estate agent nor a contractor, the designer offers very general cost analysis and remodeling recommendations for anything from one-bedroom condos to complex multistory, single-family homes. After ruminating on the information gleaned during the walk-through, Farzad makes himself available for follow-up thoughts, final ideas, and avant-garde analyses of Fletch Lives.
