Building Your Dream Home – Pt 3 Review

On Thursday 4/22 we held the last of our three-part series on Building Your Dream Home, in partnership with the Financial Times.

Once a Dream Home is built, the interior finishes, furniture, textiles and artwork need to be installed – but the process doesn’t always end there. Project team members such as the Architect, General Contractor or Interior Designer will want to document the project for their portfolios, hiring a professional photographer or videographer to shoot the building, landscape and interiors. Sometimes this happens right at the end of a build, before the client moves in, and sometimes it may take months or years into the new home’s life to find the right moment for this work.

Listen to the audio recap here, or watch the full video recap below.

You can also find the recaps from Part 1 and Part 2 of our series on the Brick & Wonder Journal.
