I should explain that initial tasks should be done on a flat fee. 

I find doing the spec takes a lot of time it's like building a house. You keep changing the blueprints and costs skyrocket.

Fix spec make new changes in v2 or v3.

There are lots of ownership here. If you haven't done it before find someone who has.

I've coded or managed hundreds of software projects. Not one finished how it started. Opt instead for early and often sketches, wireframes and working code.
