Our Daydreams To Details Design Process Removes Every Ounce Of Stress From Your Remodeling Project…And Allows You To Get EXACTLY What You Want.

It’s completely understandable if you’re apprehensive about remodeling your home. After all, home remodeling is the number one most complained about industry in America. The perception among many consumers is that most remodeling companies lack organization and communication skills. Unfortunately, getting the remodel of your dreams isn’t going to be as simple, straightforward, or neatly-tied-up-in-twenty-three-minutes as your favorite reality shows have led you to believe.

But, renovating also doesn’t have to be a frustrating, costly, and altogether headache-filled process.That’s why we want to give you a detailed description of our work process. We call it the “Daydreams To Details Design Process” because we take the utmost care to make you happy—from the first meeting to the final walkthrough.

Realize that in addition to designing for our clients, our team manages the projects. In other words, we guide homeowners from the “how” to the “wow.” Throughout the process we strive to meet the needs and requirements of our clients.

Attention to detail and superior craftsmanship are executed in each project. This, in combination with determination and dedication towards customer satisfaction, contributes to the Design/Build experience of our clients. Additionally, our Lead Designers’ certification in Universal Design provides our clients with environments, products, and services that are accessible and safe for all occupants in a household, regardless of their ability, age, or current state of health.

So, with all that said, here’s a peek at our process and how we work:

  • Initial Meetings (The Brainstorm Session)

    During our first meeting we’ll spend some time getting to know each other to ensure we are a good fit. We ask that all decision makers attend this initial session so we can go over any questions or concerns anyone may have. Once you decide to work with us, the next step is to start the Design/Build process for large remodels or for any project that needs the scope and development of it determined. If the project requires just a “facelift,” I will measure and take pictures for an estimate during this meeting.

    After the Design/Build process starts, we’ll guide you through an exhilarating brainstorming session to help turn your dream into a reality.

    During our subsequent meetings, Well show you dozens of materials, pick your brain, and throw out ideas to help you discover TRULY what you want.  Read more about our design services here.

  • The Price/Quote Estimate Process

    After we brainstorm ideas, Designer, Kathi Fleck will take measurements and pictures of the area you want remodeled. Depending on the size of the project, it will take her one to two weeks to prepare a detailed proposal for facelift jobs. For large Design/Build remodels, you will have several meetings and showroom visits before determining the final pricing and review of the proposal.

    Once you have decided on the final project, Kathi and you will meet (we ask that all decision makers be present), sign a formal contract, and collect the initial deposit to start your project. For the “facelift” projects, you’ll make the final selections of materials at this time.

    Next, our team will start the process, which includes: pulling permits, ordering products, and scheduling the specialty trades. Just before the construction begins, we’ll hold a Pre-Construction Meeting so we can review the construction and timeline process with you and be made aware of any special requirements you may have during the construction process. We plan accordingly to ensure minimal disruption to your daily routine .

  • During Construction

    Don oversees the crew on every jobsite. He is a hands-on guy, and is committed to helping our clients in any way he can. Our goal is to make your remodeling project smooth, easy, and stress-free.

    We have a close-knit group of employees and specialty trade subcontractors we rely on and trust with our clients’ remodeling projects. These subcontractors are the absolute pinnacle of work ethic and skills. They treat your home with the utmost respect and care. That means no loud music, no smoking, and no profanity.

    And unlike most companies , we encourage you to come to us with any questions or concerns during the job. This includes change orders. We believe communication between the client and the contractor is vital to ensuring the job is done EXACTLY how you want it done.

    Lastly, we use punch lists during every part of your project. This ensures a smooth transition between job phases and that everything gets done the right way the first time.

  • Completion

    After the job, we perform a through final walkthrough to make sure every item on our project punch list is completed. We go to great lengths to make sure you’re happy. To put it simply, we’re OCD when it comes to detail. We survey every tiny detail of our work to make sure it’s perfect. Don is right there to note if anything needs to be improved, fixed, or could be done better. The bottom line is we don’t leave your home until the only word able to escape your mouth is “Wow!”
