Our renovation & remodeling design-build process

With superior craftsmanship and a design-build process tailored to your home, we renovate and remodel rooms and exteriors that stand the test of time. This is how our renovation and remodel design-build process works:

Brief Interview

It starts with your phone call or email. We will briefly interview you for a comprehensive picture of your remodeling project and then schedule an initial consultation.

Design Agreement

When you sign a design agreement, we will produce a design that fits your budget. From there we develop a series of drawings and estimates, reviewing and revising them with you.

Construction Agreement

Upon a signed construction agreement, our team of specially trained carpenters follows a written construction schedule to complete your project on time.
