Scope of the Project

A frequently asked question is what projects will add the most to their lifestyle and at what cost? We have the experience and willingness to break down the various projects so the owners can make a decision as to what works best for them.

We will look at how extensive the remodeling project is. Will it tear down a whole room or is it just a small addition?

Analysis of the Existing Home

Once you have a design in mind, the existing home needs to be put on paper before the remodeling starts. With our Computer-Aided Design (CAD) program, our designers can come up with the best plans that meet your needs.

The New Plans

We’ll have to price out and build what we’ve designed. We’ll use the CAD program to find new ways to change the existing structures to various awesome layouts.

Design Philosophy

We take a lot of pride in what we do. It matters to us how the project will serve our clients in the long run and what it will look like when we are done.

We believe that a remodeling or addition project should blend with other elements in your home such as drainage and power fixtures.
