As kitchen remodeling experts we have the answers you are looking for. We can guide your decisions on what is and isn’t necessary to make your space work for you. From basic cosmetics to removing walls, enlarging floor plans, and moving fixtures; all is possible.  We work with you and brainstorm creative ideas and present several solutions to solve your existing space issues, with a budget. We outline and guide you through all the details, creating full plan sets for the build team. John and I work directly with the team daily so that you can keep your life's priorities front and center.  

We break our Kitchen Remodel Services into three categories:

  1. Design and Build of new Kitchen changing layout, electrical and structural as needed. (MAJOR)

  2. Pull and Replace of existing kitchen leaving your footprint of appliances as is. (MINOR)

  3. Redesign with cosmetic update of existing kitchen, cabinets stay but may get re-faced, new counter-tops, back-splash and fixtures.(COSMETIC)

    Work with us all the way through the build or take advantage of the knowledge and expertise of the Planning Phases you need the most.

Step 1.  Consultations:  We start by scheduling your FREE virtual consultation so we can hear your ideas and learn about your project.  During this consultation I can guide you with valuable information on what to expect for realistic investment ranges based on the type and size of your project using our services. 

Next, we schedule an in home consultation where I meet with you and provide;

  • brainstorming and creative solutions to come up with your plan of action

  • answer any questions about the many product options, build process and timing

  • review local cost vs value information and create budgeting specific to meeting your goals

  • typical investment cost ($299.00) and I provide a plan of action, material budget and labor estimate

We don’t have sales persons’ instead we cater our services to your needs and provide expert assistance with me, a NARI Certified Kitchen and Bathroom Remodeler from the first contact onward. Not all of our clients are doing a MAJOR remodel, we use our experience to guide you based on what you want and need.

Just looking for a labor estimate? I can do that too.

With the consultation completed and a investment range determined you are ready to get started on Phase 2 Project Development. 

Step 2. Project Development Service:  Choosing us to guide you through the design planning and selections is the most valuable decision you will make.   Projects can become frustrating and go off budget without the guidance of one familiar expert looking out for your goals. We believe being involved, with a watchful eye,  in all the decisions protects your end investment.   First up, we obtain detailed measurements, existing photos and prepare several space plan options and selection boards for your review.  Using those as our guide and your feedback we work with you to craft your space by following a selection process. We schedule meetings at local showrooms to check out products and offer virtual renderings of your finished project with the decisions you make.

Each decision is based on your feedback and investment range. 

 A Fixed Price Proposal is created with specification of materials, visual exhibits and a detailed scope of work based on all our work together.  Champagne taste but beer budget? At this stage we go back and value engineer the decisions so that we don’t lose the beauty or function. We pride ourselves on having one of the most complete project proposals so you know exactly what we will be installing.

Once approved we create a plan set that includes construction details, cabinet plans, elevations, tile, accessory and electrical plan. If Local to our area and looking for our build services we also include a fixed price construction cost based on all the decisions made together, no guessing. 

Your project is now at the ready, waiting for the construction team. (Already have a construction team? No problem we can hand off)

Investment for the Project Development Service (kitchen design, selections and planning) is between $2500-5000 for a major design and build, and between $500-$1500 for a minor pull and replace or cosmetic services. All our services are priced dependent on project sizes and scope.  We also credit the consultation fee ($299.00) to the cost of the project development agreement.

Step 3. Build:  Let the the work begin! If local and using our build services we begin the Construction phase.  Entering into this phase you continue your work with Cindy and Lauren as they handle the project management and John works with the build team creating your beautiful new space.  

Total project costs (materials + construction) varies dependent on size and scope but typically you can expect the following ranges:

Design and Build Services $45,000 and up

Pull and Replace Kitchen $18,000 and up

Cosmetic Kitchen Upgrades $4000 and up



A pull and replace kitchen is when you have no plans to make structural or footprint changes. We believe good planning saves time and money by controlling costs; first by creating the scope of work and then using a budget to make quality selections that don't get out of control.  Our flexibility to use your own team to install or we can bring in the right team of craftsman for your project.
