Small Business Home Improvement Website
Introduction: Understand What I want. As I am looking to build a long term relationship.
I am seeking a Designer who works in Dreamweaver, Golive, or hand codes. Yet, has the ability to do nice graphics work with it. I seem to find great coders/programmers, or great graphics people who slice images to make code.
• I don’t want someone who is dominate in code because no matter how great there desire they make plan or less then professional looking sites.
• I don’t want someone who just codes from photoshop and slices the images.
Note: I already have great people who can do the above. I would use them again and do.
I am seeking someone affordable, who is able to understand English and the American feel to web design. I am not opposed to people in India, South America, Canada, or the United States.
I do affordable websites for clients. I have created a niche for the small family business who never had a website. Might sites have to be done at a low enough cost where I can make a little money too. So United States Designers may not meet my goals. Also I have had very bad experiences with American designers who charge a lot and deliver worse then others.
This project is for: A Home Remodeling Contractor ( home repair contractor)
The project must look good, and be editable easily in dreamweaver or golive. Having to go back to psd and re-slice is not what I am seeking.

I would like to have the site done in about 10 days. Or, at least parts of the page up in 10 days.
I wont consider any price listed over $250 so do not waste your time to post if your price exceeds that.
I am looking to spend between $100 and $180. If I like your work, I will pay a bonus and potentially cover GAF fees. So if your price is at $100 and you knock my socks off you have a chance of still getting more. I am a fair person.
1. The customer is my property and all communications go through me.
2. Project must be completed on deadlines agreed.
3. I will pay 25% down, 25% half way through, 25% at complete and uploaded to server, and remaining 25% after all files are turned over.
4. Text and images must be edit friendly (no full psd websites)
5. You must provide a list of samples of your work.
a. If you have done a lot of Coding websites do not bother including them. It might hurt your chances to get the project. Or CMS sites.
b. You must include at least 10 samples.
Note: If you like to work or prove you’re self by completing the project or do a smaller project to prove yourself I am open to that. If we agree I will not use your work without paying you as long as it is the agreed upon price. This is called building on spec. No up front money or very little.
Please use PM to communicate and list your sites.
READ ALL before Bidding.
