Budget Guidelines

In House Designer: If you have an idea but don’t know where to start, our in-house Lead Designer will be happy to meet with you, look over your plans (or your scribbled on napkin) and help turn your project into reality. Our designer has over 15 years experience with interior design and works with Chief Architect 3D modeling software to get our clients the design of their dreams.

Expert Design: Our in-house lead designer meets with all of our clients to design a space that makes sense and exceeds the expectations of what many of our clients thought possible. Expert design not only feels great, it adds tremendous value to the project maximizing our clients return on investment.

Expert Organization: The design/build process allows for our firm to accurately quote our projects as we have all of the information, material selections and a buildable set of plans upfront. Many companies who don't utilize this model are guessing on costs which invariably change once the project starts leading to many unnecessary change orders and cost overruns. Our design team puts a 3 ring binder with all of the job details together before we start the project ensuring that our production team has a detailed plan to execute the construction process.

Expert Execution: We utilize in-house carpenters and expert, fully vetted sub-contractors to build all of our projects. We believe that having in-house employees for the majority of the project allows us to deliver a quality standard that most companies struggle to achieve. We are very selective in our hiring process, and encourage an active learning environment for all of our team members leading to a great experience for our clients during the construction process.

Design Fees: Should you choose to hire us for the design portion of your project you will have full access to our lead designer who will work with you on spatial design, and material selections. A digital design board of the completed design will be delivered to you with a detailed construction quote at the end of the process.
Here are some examples of our design fees for different project types;
Bathroom Remodel: $1250 and up depending on the size/scope of the project
Kitchen Remodel: $2500 and up depending on the size/scope of the project
Full House Remodel: $7500 and up depending on size/scope of project

It's important to determine a budget range for your project to insure that we can provide an estimate that is realistic for the design you are after. Here are some budget guidelines for our typical remodeling projects;
