How long does it take to plan a project?

Although the answer can vary to this question, our design and development process is 6-8 weeks. Our sales team will first speak with you to gain the general scope of work regarding your project. Then come to your home to do initial field measurements to present the options and selections for your project. The end of the 6-8 weeks will include a full set of construction documents, final selections, and a budget to move forward with the next step of your project.

What does communication look like?

Communication is the most important. This starts with our dedicated sales team and then follows with in person meetings that are held throughout the design process. We use state of the art design software to show you what your project will look like before we even step foot in your home. Throughout the course of your project, we have formal face to face meetings with your project manager conducted on site once a week. We also utilize a project management software, Buildertrend that will show you daily logs, calendar updates, photos, and more. This allows our clients to really be connected to their project and to our team as well. 

 

Can I live at home during my remodel?

Yes. We truly want our clients to understand the concept of livable remodeling and what that entails. Not everyone has the option to be fully removed from their homes during this process.
