Initial Phone Call

The first step of working together is to reach out to us. Through a series of phone calls, we will go over the general scope of your project to see if we are a good fit. We’ll talk about timeline and budget, and ask for pictures of your current space. If we are a good fit, we will then schedule a visit to your home.

In-Home Visit

We come out to your home to meet you and see your space. We’ll also talk more in-depth on what your vision is. This helps us to have a better understanding of your project and make sure we are on the same page so that we can move on to the next step – the agreements.

Design Agreement

Using our own design partners is preferred, but not required. So whether you use our design partners or yours, we start here to begin detailing the direction your project.

Many of our clients prefer to enter into a comprehensive agreement with us, where we take you all the way through design, to pre-construction, to execution. This helps our clients to simplify the process by working with one contractor and their established group of subcontractors, which eliminates frustrations and empowers one main point person to be responsible for getting it done.

Design Phase

We work very closely with design professionals to maximize your budget with the fewest unknowns and to eliminate design blunders. We determine globally what you want, then work backwards from there. This helps to minimize change orders that can be very costly and unnecessarily extend the timeline of your project.

We have the right qualified design partners for what you are building. Whether it’s a kitchen remodel, a kitchen remodel with a bump out, an addition, the reworking of an interior space, an outdoor living oasis – whatever it is for your home – we can bring your vision to life. Our trusted network of interior designers, space planners, civil engineers, and architects are equipped to handle the most simple to the most complicated projects.

The Design Phase is also where we will define things like permits with the city and state and any third party inspections that will need to be done, such as the site survey and plan, soil analysis and bearing capacity, and percolation testing.

Construction Agreement

Our construction agreement is a very detailed and specific document to make sure we are all clear on the expectations of your project. We treat every project – every home – as if it were our own. We would never expect you to sign something that you didn’t wholly agree with and understand.

That’s why we make it a priority to completely lay out the specifics of the Construction Phase in the Construction Agreement. We sign it when all parties are thoroughly confident in the designated framework of their investment, including estimated costs and timeline, all design details, and a full understanding of what to expect during the Construction Phase.

Construction Phase

Then it’s time for us to get to work! As we start to build out your space, we’ll do everything we can to accommodate you to make the Construction Phase easy on your daily life. We can’t wait for you to have your updated home just as much as you can’t wait to live in it! Once this is over… get ready to invite your friends over to see your brand new space!
