In-Home Design Consultation.
Our process starts with your first call to our office and we schedule a free, In-Home Consultation to discuss your ideas and explore possibilities. This meeting allows for our design team to brainstorm with you on alternatives and adaptations for your project and to help define the project scope. We take full measurements and photographs of the areas to be renovated. During this meeting you will be shown examples of other home renovation projects similar to yours for us to gain even more insight into your expectations, your desired finishes, and desired features. This allows us to design a preliminary project layout and budget.

The Design and Design Presentation.
As a Design/Builder, we use our years of construction experience to develop working sketches of the project from which we are able to determine a budget. In some instances, several viable designs may evolve and this is the opportunity to perform a cost benefit for the different designs. A detailed written project description is created that spells out specifically the renovation work, specific details, and a budget. At the follow up Design Presentation Meeting, usually scheduled within a week or two, the written proposal and drawing are discussed and fine tuned for final approval. Several meeting may take place to refine the design, identify the selections, and adjust the scope.

The Blueprints & Permits
Final construction blueprints are completed based on the approved project proposal and working sketches. Any required site engineering surveys and plans are also completed and submitted to the governing municipality by our team along with the construction blueprints for Permit issuance. While the permit is being processed, selections are finalized and materials are ordered and staged for delivery once the Permit is issued.

Scheduling & Construction Management
The true key to a successful renovation is being on-time and on-budget while exceeding your expectations. This starts with a clear schedule, well defined details and good communication. We are in constant communication with you during the entire process, through our daily site visits to manage and monitor work, daily emails to relay updates and information to you, and the distribution of paperwork. This constant communications gives you full confidence and control over your home and your project.

Our team manages every aspect of the construction process. Prior to the start plastic barriers are installed between the renovation area and the living spaces. Carpet runner, floor paper, and tarps are installed to protect existing finishes around and in the workspace. Your home will be locked and unlocked daily by a team member in your absence.

Completing the Renovation.
The final days of construction are very exciting and it is at this point, that you will take a final walk through of the renovation with our team. Any concern that you have will be noted and resolved prior to finishing your project. The final day of construction is completed with the removal of all construction debris, removal of the contractor tools, while a professional cleaning crew shines everything to a sparkle ready for you to move in and enjoy. Your satisfaction in the renovation is very important to us. Referrals through happy and satisfied clients are what make us stand out from the others.
