The answer is with your ideas! We love to meet folks carrying an armful of pictures, a stack of magazines, and brimming with ideas. Helping plan your home remodeling dream is almost as much fun for us as the construction itself!

Our team approach to home remodeling brings you together with our designers and construction experts very early-on, and ensures that we start out, and then stay with, an elegant and cost-effective Plan. This "Design/Build" process is simple and easy to navigate, here’s a sample of how it can work for you:

Step 1: Initial Consultation

The objective for our initial meeting is to determine if we are a good fit as your Design/Builder. We will develop an understanding of your goals and priorities by listening very carefully and asking lots of questions. We will help you develop a list of priorities, perhaps create rough sketches of the project, and discuss a general range of budget. We will explain our interactive design-build process, and answer your questions. If things make sense and the chemistry feels right, you may engage our services to begin the design.

Step 2: Design

Immediately upon entering into a Design Agreement we will schedule meetings with our Design Team. Our team will include a professional designer along with a construction expert [who might well become the Project Manager for your new home.] This team approach ensures that we don’t get thousands of dollars into design, only to later find out that costs are too high or the design is simply not practical.

During the Design process we will carefully explore your objectives for the project and gather lots of data. We will draw several conceptual designs with various options, and refine them with your input. Once the design has been finalized, we will create elevations and 3-D views. We will be certain that you have a workable solution that you are thrilled with, and can be built within your prescribed budget range. This is also a great way for you to get to know us before construction begins.

Step 3: Selections

With your design in-hand we begin the selections process. Our staff will help you select every item that is going into your project from kitchen cabinets, drawer pulls, faucets, ceramic tile, trim and millwork, and much more. We will provide as much - or as little - assistance as you wish and will keep you apprised of approximate costs throughout the process.

Step 4: Pricing

Once the Design and Selections are complete, trade contractors (such as the plumbers, electricians, roofers, etc.) whose work we know and trust will be invited to study the Plans and Specifications. We will solicit competitive bids [exact prices, not estimates!], and work out hundreds of construction details. The result will be a Construction Agreement for your approval including an exact price based on your design, your selections, actual trade contractor bids, and fixed prices for our services. This is not an estimate; it is the final price.

Step 5: Construction

Upon mutual agreement a pre-construction meeting is set. We will introduce you to the Project Manager [you've probably been working with him/her for months already!] and we will familiarize you with our Work Plan. All the final details necessary to start work are addressed, and a communication plan is established. You will receive a schedule listing important project milestone events, and who you can expect at your home. Of course, the Project Manager will be on site virtually every day and is readily available by phone and/or email. All of the selections you made during the design phase will be ordered for delivery as needed to keep the project moving.

From years of experience and lots of mis-steps we know that careful planning is the key to making sure your project runs smoothly, with minimal disruption to your family. Taking all of these important steps allows us to finish your project on time and on budget.

Once work is finished and we have completed the final walk-through, all you have to do is relax and enjoy your new home!
