HAVE SOME QUESTIONS?
The disruption a project might create is dependent upon the size and scope of what you are seeking to accomplish as well as your tolerance for navigating change. During a large renovation, we have had some families relocate to a short term rental or extended stay hotel. Others choose to stay the course and find it exciting to be in the middle of the action. The emotional arc is typically “I can’t wait to get started!” to “When will you be finished?” to “I can’t stand it anymore!” and finally “This turned out even better than I imagined!” The big picture is whether your project takes two weeks or two years, change is uncomfortable to navigate. However, once completed, the time spent on the renovation is well worth the benefits and enjoyment you receive for years to come.
Depending on your project scope a renovation can take as little as six weeks or even more than a year or two. We approach projects from the perspective of a master planner, taking a global approach to what your vision is overall so we can build a step by step plan to achieving it. . Breaking the project down into budget conscious steps spread out over an extended period of time allows us to plan for everything but execute in phases to optimize budgets and keep timelines in check.
We utilize evaluation and validation tools throughout our process to ensure our work aligns with your vision. Upon our first meeting, we ask targeted and in depth questions to get a better understanding of the clients needs. At the start of the project, clients gain access to a customized web-based digital design board that visually affirms our design intent and documents every decision for the client to see. Having access to our professional expertise and discerning eye ensures you will be absolutely thrilled with the results!
Many factors contribute to the cost of a project so this is a question that is not simple to answer without some specifics. Are you handy with the hammer and plan to invest some sweat equity to the process? Do you have time to search for those rare bargains or are you comfortable with installing a manufacturer’s discontinued fixtures for the cost savings? There are many ways to get creative with a budget and we are experts in this area. The key is to start with a number that is REALISTIC and then get creative. You can get the look for less but it takes the skill and resources to execute it well. We are happy to schedule a time to discuss your specific needs and formulate a realistic budget for you. Just give us a call!

THANK YOU FOR YOUR KIND WORDS
Not a day goes by without Steve and I still in amazement of how you blended our existing house with the new… how the rooms flow together and how you always kept true to our taste and style. We couldn’t be happier especially when we show it off to our friends and relatives. Thank you for helping us to exude (through our home) the quality and relaxed style that subtly show our personalities and easy way of living in our beautiful home!
Please accept our most sincere thanks for all you have done to steer the project of our new kitchen! We are still in awe and amazement that our once run-down and eye-sore of a kitchen has been transformed into a place of warmth, gathering of friends and family and preparation of meals which is central to our large family! Because of your patience, vision and dedication, we now have a place we are proud to call our beautiful new kitchen!
Our remodel project consisted of a complete renovation of our entire first floor, including a kitchen, bath and great room. Denise always displayed a high degree of integrity, responsibility, ambition and creativity. She is wonderful to work with. Her ability to adapt to her clients needs is remarkable as is her ability to work within budgetary constraints. Throughout the design process, we found Denise to be thoughtful and respectful of our ideas and concerns, listening carefully before offering suggestions. We enjoyed her enthusiasm and sense of humor. Denise has completely transformed our house into a warm and beautiful home and most importantly it reflects our taste and personality.
Thank you for all your hard work to get us the kitchen of our dreams! We are so happy to finally have the space we always wanted. If it was not for you we would still be sitting here just thinking about it. You helped make so many decisions that we never could have figured out on our own. Your hard work is appreciated!
Denise has helped us reimagine different rooms of our home. Each time they came out beautiful and functional. She does top quality work.
