We break our major remodel process down into three easy phases, each phase is structured and seamlessly moves you closer to the home of your dreams; within your budget and in your timeline. 

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.

Phase 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 and our services. 

Next, we schedule an in home consultation and take you through;

  • your project needs

  • brainstorm solutions and ideas

  • answer any questions

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

  • typical investment cost ($299.00)

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

Phase 2. Design and Planning:  Choosing us to guide you through the project development is the most valuable decision you will make.   Projects can become frustrating and go off budget without the guidance of our experience and open communication.  Being involved, with a watchful eye,  in all the decisions protects your investment.    First up, we obtain detailed measurements and prepare several space plan options and concept boards.  Using those as our guide we work with you to craft your space by following a selection process. Each decision is based on your feedback and investment range. 

 A Proposal is created with specification of materials, visual exhibits and a detailed scope of work based on all our work together.  

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 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 is between $2500-5000 dependent on project sizes and scope.  We credit the consultation fee to the cost of the project development agreement, the cost of which has been determined via your project size and scope.

Phase 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.  

Investment varies dependent on size and scope of project but typically starting at $40,000.00 and up.
