Our methodical and iterative approach to planning and design makes us truly unique. We listen to you. We take the time to understand what you like and what you envision your dream home to be. We read between the lines. We provide options. We explore alternatives. We provide guidance and advice. Because we always look ahead, our plans are strategic in nature. This greatly reduces the likelihood of unanticipated issues that often arise when details are not identified and addressed in advance. We are also flexible. We understand that at times you may change your mind. We do our best to allow you the room to refine your vision so that when the project is finished, your expectations are not only met, but exceeded.

Our approach includes 5 stages:


1. Initial Meeting

We will meet with you at your home to discuss in detail every aspect of your project. We use a consultative and collaborative approach to help you define your vision for the end product. We take the time to explain the process, timeline, and answer any questions you may have. We take photos and measurements of the existing spaces and document any issues that are relevant to the planning process.


2. Estimate

Our estimates are among the most detailed and precise in the industry. We take the time to carefully account for, and appropriately price, each item involved in the construction phase. The comprehensive and detailed nature of our estimates ensures that the likelihood of surprises at the end of the project is greatly reduced. Out of respect to our clients’ time, in most cases we will provide our estimates within 10 business days from the time of the initial meeting. We will meet with you in person to present our estimate. This allows us to answer any questions you may have or make modifications to the project.


3. Planning

As soon as you approve the estimate, we begin planning the construction phase. This involves breaking down the work into its various components and determining the sequence of the individual phases (plumbing, electrical, drywall, cabinetry, painting, etc.). This process also establishes the timeline for the completion of the project. We will meet with you to review the construction plan and answer any questions you may have.


4. Construction

Once you approve the construction plan, we begin the work on the agreed-upon date. We recognize that with remodeling projects, we will be guests in your home. As such, we commit to keeping a clean worksite, being respectful of your time, space and privacy. We will ensure that our presence is as unobtrusive as possible, and we will do our best to accommodate your schedule while respecting the project timeline. We provide oversight and supervision of our sub-contractors and are personally responsible for their timeliness, conduct, and quality of work.

5. Final Review/Inspection

Once the work is completed, we will do a detailed walk-through with you to ensure everything meets your expectations and that we answer any questions or concerns you may have. We do not consider the project complete until you are absolutely satisfied with the results. If an inspection is required, we will schedule it accordingly and will be onsite to meet with the inspector to finalize the approval process.
