Design: The First Step

When considering a renovation project, the Design Process is an integral first step.  This Process allows you to think through your project with a professional, work through important details and decisions, and then document everything so that it is all properly communicated across the Construction Trades, who will move on to the execution phase.

Once planned, your Design team can assist with Material and Finish Selections, place and track orders, handle delivery and provide Construction Management Services, visiting and trouble shooting on site throughout the building process.

Our Design Approach

Our Designers work as a Team, not only within the Department, but with the Construction Crew, as well as with the Homeowner.  It is our belief that it is not our job to impose our personal vision, but rather, it is our goal to realize, manifest and maximize your own unique vision, whatever style, aesthetic or functional need that may be.  Together as a Team, the Homeowner, Design Professionals and Construction Professionals work to create the best project for the intended outcome.

Making Design Decisions

We understand that making design decisions can be stressful and feel overwhelming.  We can offer help to navigate this process to help make these decisions, as well as provide guidance to help you to stay on task. As well as specific material and item selections, we create “to do” lists with timelines, “shopping lists” to be sure that every item is accounted for and many other tools to help manage your job.  It is our hope that we can relieve some of the decision fatigue and allow you to enjoy the fun part- your newly evolving space!
