OUR DESIGN-BUILD PROCESS
It all begins with a phone call. Tell us about your project. Our conversation can answer questions on both sides. Let’s decide if we’re a good fit to work together.
Next: In-home Consultation. Show us around! What are your dreams for the space? What are your pains? Gary’s keen eye, experience, and insight always yield fresh ideas and perspective. Let’s brainstorm and discuss how to move forward.
Discovery & Innovation
Cost: Varies from $700 to 2% of projected construction costs.
Sign your Conceptual Design Agreement. Let’s begin! This agreement, which outlines a fixed price design fee, begins the brainstorming design phase.
Conceptual Design. We’ll discuss your budget and program in detail, helping you prioritize your wish list and assess your project’s feasibility. Your home’s existing conditions will be documented and entered into our CAD system. We’ll brainstorm and sketch out many creative solutions. Finally, we’ll present multiple design options (typically three) with 3D renderings and rough ballpark pricing ranges. This is a fun and eye-opening meeting.
Cost: Varies from 2% to 5% of projected construction costs.
Sign your Design Development Agreement. This agreement allows our talented team to lead you through the big picture planning as well as all the numerous details of your project.
Design Development. This is a collaborative process between you and our team and the homeowners. Together, we will:
Synthesize the best design ideas into a single plan
Further tailor the design with great style and details
Review and select materials
Address structural, mechanical, electrical issues
Develop a full construction contract, specifications, and pricing options
Cost: Fixed price. Down payment with monthly installments after that.
We pride ourselves on excellence. We’re experts at managing the details from start to finish. Our regular meetings and open communication allow us to stay on budget and on schedule, to resolve any issues quickly, and to keep you, the client, informed at all levels. We’re dedicated to making the remodeling process a pleasure, and elevating your love of home.
