Are you ready to begin your remodeling project?
Let’s get started!
- Schedule your initial consultation – in the one hour meeting, we will talk about your ideas for your project, discuss what is needed to proceed (surveys, plans, specification development, estimates of cost with possible options, financing questions, schedules and time frames).
- Develop plans for you project – This is the part where you get to make decisions on layout, product selection. Along with our vendors we work with you to help you make the best decisions for your project.
- The estimate – We will develop in writing a very detailed estimate of the costs to perform the work discussed at our initial design meeting. This proposal may go through 2 or 3 revisions to make sure everyone is comfortable that everything is explained and all options are included. The proposal includes a description of the work to be performed, materials used and copies of subcontractors’ scope of work etc. You are not bound to our performing the work described in the proposal unless a contract is signed.
OUR GOAL IN PROVIDING THIS ESTIMATE IS TO GIVE YOU A REALISTIC COST OF YOUR PLANNED PROJECT GIVEN YOUR TASTES, NOT NESSESSARLY THE “LOW BID”.
- The contract is signed –time to order products, create a job schedule and get on the subcontractors calendars. The calendar flexes as needed for products that are backordered but these things are usually minor delays.When we “general” a job we prefer to be the “lead”. That means ALL communication between owners, suppliers, sub-contractors, and other people on site need to go through our lead carpenters. This ensures that nothing is “assumed” and all phases of the project are performed within specifications to keep the job running on time and within budget.During the project there are daily and/or weekly communications of what is happening depending on the size and scope of work being performed and your needs as the homeowner. This process can vary from a week to several months, depending on the size of the job, time for you to make decisions, and other factors.
- Punch list – Towards the end of a project there are usually “little things” that can go unnoticed, are back ordered, or additional change orders that we request to be placed on a written “to do” list. This helps us complete the project efficiently by avoiding numerous return trips.
- Time to enjoy your newly remodeled space!
