Big Takeaway :

It is also not uncommon for a designer to work with somebody, maybe they do a conceptual design and they do some design and they just disappear for a year and then out of nowhere they resurface and they’re ready to buy now. That really happens a lot. It also explains why they work with the client for a year, and then when they’re ready to do the project after  receiving a deposit check for the cabinet fee, designer fee everything and are ready to go and on the 11th hour, they would lose the job to another supplier or another manufacturer because for whatever reason, even though they’d been planning and planning they lost trust in the process or the designer.
