To reinforce what fietsbob said tell the builder what your intended use is and what you like to do then leave the geometry to him. Speaking as soneone who knew frame builders, toured a lot and raced a bit and had dozens of bikes and a couple custom steel frames. The frame builder has more experience seeing the results of their ideas than a riders extrapolations.
