Remodeling Process: Design/Build

compass on blueprintsYou do not have to know exactly what you want to begin exploring your home improvement project. We will help and guide you through the remodeling design and scope development process and let you know what decisions need to be made and when. Our process is comprehensive and inclusive. As professional home contractors, we guide you through a streamlined process where you are actively involved in every step and decision of your home improvement project.

 

Phases of Our Design/Build Process

Phase 1: Free Consultation

After you contact us about your project, we…

  • Visit with you to learn about your project goals, ideas, wants, and needs

  • Tour other areas of your home to understand your taste, style, and home’s architecture to ensure consistency with your project

  • Present who we are, what we do, and how we do it

  • Discuss the project options, general scope of work, time frame, and budget

If we both agree that we’re compatible, then we will produce a Design Agreement.
Upon its approval, we collect a design fee and progress to the next phase.

Phase 2: Design

After you approve the Design Agreement, we work closely with you to…

  • Measure and assess project areas

  • Set up a trade walkthrough visit with subcontractors who will be working on your project

  • Assess the need for building code-related upgrades triggered by the project

  • Develop a complete scope of work, plans, and schedule

  • Assist with the selection of products and materials for your project

  • Compile and organize project documents

After reviewing the project with the Lead Carpenter, we will produce a Construction Agreement. Upon its approval, we collect a deposit and progress to the next phase.

Phase 3: Construction

After you approve the Construction Agreement, we… 

  • Obtain applicable permits

  • Order materials, schedule subcontractors, and confirm schedule

  • Complete your project, collecting scheduled progress payments during the process

Finally, we meet with you to complete close-out paperwork, including warranty information and a survey for your feedback.
