Our Process


Our process includes lots of questions and we ask them to gain an understanding of each client’s motivations and desires to achieve the first step in our development. We believe it is critical to ask questions in order to develop a plan, a process, improve communication to achieve a beautiful result for each client as well as providing a respectful attitude toward each client’s space and schedule all with the final goal in mind: a beautiful finished project our client.



Design


Here’s what to expect throughout our design effort:


  • Initial Consultation: Discuss your priorities, project investment, and timeline.

  • Design Remodel Work: Includes measuring space, developing a budget and an estimated project schedule, creating layout(s), product selection, drawings, and the preliminary scope of the work.

  • Design: Includes Schematic drawings, project site layout, floor plans, and other sketches and information created to arrive at the project’s approximate look and feel. Detailed descriptions of products, elevations of surfaces, and refined scope of work are created to finalize the look and feel of all project components.

  • Final Decisions: Complete a final concept and design, create a project timeline containing all of the detailed information from the design work.

Communication


A design that flows from the contractor and the client creates great new spaces.
A home is built upon relationship and communication. To alleviate the normal anxiety about what and how things are proceeding a detailed "Daily Report" is provided to our clients. We guide our clients through complex and detailed projects with a smooth, efficient process and a considerate manner. We provide prompt service and attentive responses to calls and questions. We maintain regular communication back and forth through every phase of the project.


Cost Containment


Respect for the client’s budget is one of our core values. We like to see how efficiently we can reach the client’s objective and how beautiful the end result can be. We understand the differences between price and value.
We separate essential quality from needless extravagance without sacrificing aesthetics. We have the experience and skill to know which corners can be cut safely and which would prove risky or costly in the long run.
