Our Remodeling Process

The better you plan, the easier the project. 

A Story in 4 Parts:


Our Remodeling Process From Start to Finish

Part One: Estimate and Design: 4 to 6 weeks

The planning and design process is the most important part of a successful remodel. We like to have 2 to 4 design meetings for each project so we can nail down all the details. 

Step 1: Your Design and Budget Consult

Step 2:  Approve Your Budget and Schedule Your First Design Meeting

Step 3: It Usually Takes 2-4 design meetings to finalize all the details

Step 4: Sign Your Fixed Price Prosposal and Set Your Start Date

Part Two: Ordering and Pre-Construcution – 6 – 7 weeks

We orders all materials and store them in the warehouse unitl they are needed on site. This helps avoid any unnecessary delays due to backorders or shipping damage.


  • Cabinets have the longest lead time – they typically take 6 weeks to be delivered to us.
  • We’ll send you regular updates as things arrive to let you know we are on track.
  • We’ll schedule a pre-construction meeting with you 2 weeks before the project starts 


Part Three: Construction – 4 to 8 Weeks

Most projects takes 4 to 8 weeks to complete, depending on the scope of work. You have complete access to your project calendar via your project portal.

1. Set Up and Dust Control on Day 1

2. Daily progress reports (2 times each day)

3. Weekly walkthru and completion list review

After a few weeks of use sometimes small adjustments are needed. We’ll schedule a visit two weeks after the project is complete to take care of any minor adjustments and follow up periodically after that via email or phone.
