Step 3

Home Remodeling Process

We have done both small and large remodeling and addition projects for over 40 years.We use the same highly skilled trades and suppliers for our remodeling projects that we use to construct our custom homes. We do not use “jack-of-all-trades” workmen, because we believe that all aspects of any project should be done by experts in that particular trade. This has been our policy from the beginning and has served our clients well for over 4 decades.

One of our early mentors in this business, Bill Bestimt, once said.“The construction business is a very complex choreography of a zillion very simple tasks.” With this in mind the best way to understand the process is to break it down into its individual parts. We look at the construction process as being made up of several main elements that are tied together in various ways.

Home Remodeling Process FAQs


Many of our clients love their neighborhood, but not their home. To most, the thought of transforming their existing and dated home into something completely different can be a daunting and mysterious process. Even with simpler projects like remodeling a kitchen or a bath, most of our clients are not sure where to start. A relatively small project can run into tens of thousands of dollars, so it is reasonable to be concerned and to want to understand the process before engaging a contractor. Most of our clients ask, “How disruptive will the work be?” “How long will it take?” “How much will it cost or how much can we get done for our budget?”

We have done both small and large remodeling and addition projects for over 40 years. We believe it is our responsibility to answer these questions and any others that our clients have.
