But first you need a backer with some financial resources.
Enter your little sister. She's sunk everything she has into Cheerios. Fortunately for you and your project, Cheerios is the only market not affected by the recent "adjustment" on Wall Street. Your financier seems eager to get the project rolling.
So you start to design and build...
...and build some more.
Excellent work. You are within your budget. The design is breathtaking.
Oh no! Structurally unsound! Your building comes tumbling down.
Your client is not pleased.
You are distraught. This will definitely cost you some serious change orders.
But you're only three. You don't know what change orders are. So you throw caution (and a few jam packets) to the wind. You start rebuilding.
The client keeps a close eye on you.
Frank Lloyd Wright would be so proud.
You get side tracked. Just for a minute.
Your client is not amused.
But you soon regain your momentum. You finish your work. You take a moment of pause to reflect on your masterpiece.
It's not only visually stunning, but it's functional as well.
The client is very pleased.
But, her financial backing has fallen through because her money is all tied up in a legal trust. Also, she never obtained to proper permits for the site. Besides the zoning ordinance states that you can't build a structure over three stories tall on this property. Your design clearly does not meet this criteria. You put a lien on the property and you're now held up in a legal battle that wages on for years. Your practice is suffering and your business partner ran off with the secretary. Things just aren't panning out. You're left in shambles with only the memories of your jelly-filled skyscraper.
