Our Design Process

Design starts with the practical… storage and layout… so we can make eliminate the everyday frustrations that can come from a bad layout or lack of storage etc… Then we help you select fixtures and materials that are easy beautiful and easy to maintain. Finally we layer on color and texture to create an architecturally significant design that works great and reflects your personal style.

Our Design Process

Our estimate and design process starts with your Good Better Best Budget. After you have approved your initial budget we will schedule a series of design meetings so we can begin to fine tune all the details of your project.

Estimate and Design

Step 1: Schedule Your Design Meetings

Each design meeting lasts about 90 minutes and has a specific goal and outcome. We’ll update the pricing for your project at the end of each meeting and send you updated plans and 3D drawings as well.

Start with your floorplan and storage

At your first design meeting we’ll have your initial floor plan ready to review

Then choose your materials and fixtures

We carry a several lines of cabinetry, tile and fixtures in the showroom. We also work with online vendors and local partners when needed. 

Add Color and Style

Finally we layer in the small details like plug locations, cabinet pulls and paint color

Step 2: Meet Your Project Manager

At your second design meeting you’ll get a chance to meet with your project manager. He will schedule a time to visit your home to verify measurements and start reviewing the project with our trade partners.

Verify Measurements

We’ll schedule a second home visit to confirm measurements and make sure there aren’t any ‘red flags’ with the scope of work. 

Review Trade Agreements

We create a detailed bid package for each trade partner involved in your project to help set expectations and get accurate pricing for your fixed price proposal. 

Step 3: Review Your Fixed Price Proposal

Once all the design and selection work is complete we will create your fixed price proposal and schedule and firm start date for your project.

Review Final Proposal

We review the details of the project one last time at our final design meeting then present you with your fixed price proposal.

Sign Permit Documents

We’ll also review and notarize the appropriate permit paperwork. 

Set Start Date

Finally we’ll set a firm start date for your project and review our pre-construction process with you.
