I'm sorry. But my experience is usually the opposite. We've been creating designs that include everything people want and asked for and they absolutely LOVE the design. They just cannot afford it. Some of them will cut parts out and do it phases. We get a lot of that. But many just end up leaving entirely and never get anything done. Whereas, if we had designed to their budget, we could have easily landed the job.
