Specializing in high-end luxury renovations.
A high-quality renovation can increase the value of your home and the enjoyment you experience from it. Taking the design-build approach, we’ll work with you to transform your beloved home.
During this stage, we learn about your needs, preferences, and lifestyle. Tell us about your routines and the kinds of activities you would enjoy at home. Describe your hopes and ideas, and share your concerns. Show us clippings and photos that express what you’re looking for in your custom home, including color schemes, fixtures, and architectural features you love. We want you to share all your thoughts. With the aim of giving you a home that will exceed your expectations, we make sure we understand exactly what you desire.
Some of the homeowners who work with us have already found and purchased a home site. Others choose from lots that we show them. We can help you find the best site using a variety of criteria; these include location, price, size, school district, and proximity to various amenities. Once a site has been selected, we’ll work with what you’ve told us during the initial meeting and prepare a set of specifications tailored to you. The specifications will allow us to finalize a preliminary budget for contractual purposes and for your consideration and approval.
During this exciting phase, we combine all of your dreams, thoughts, and ideas with our refined skills, extensive home building experience, and in-depth knowledge of the home site you’ve chosen. The result is a full set of construction documents for your new custom home. The process of creating these documents is seamless. We can work with someone you’ve selected, or we can rely on the engineers, architects, and designers we typically partner with. Regardless, we coordinate every aspect of the process and produce the documents that will help turn the vision of your home into an exciting reality.
This phase is often incredibly fun and rewarding, because you get to see so many of the details come together. Our in-house design professional coordinates the decisions about all of the finish materials, appliances, color selections, plumbing fixtures, lighting fixtures, and other aspects of your home. At this point, we already have a clear idea about what you like and dislike, which gives us a solid foundation to work with. We also make it easy for you to continue to share your thoughts with us, ask questions, and offer feedback.
The final architectural plans are approaching completion. All of your selections are being used to finalize specifications, budgets, and schedules. Construction is about to begin, and we’re making sure that everything is ready to go. Don’t worry about complying with local laws; we help you obtain final approvals from the relevant building authorities. At this stage, we also walk with you through the site and lay out the key points of your new home, helping you visualize how the construction will take place.
The preliminary work is done, and the excitement of construction now begins. Throughout the entire process, we stay in touch with you, and we regularly visit the site to keep an eye on progress and perform thorough inspections at key intervals. Construction is never going to be a perfectly exact science. It isn’t carried out in a closed facility where every variable is controlled. While we strive to make the process seamless, we also leave room for any minor changes that need to be made along the way. Through consistent dedication, expert management, and clear communication, we prevent misunderstandings and steer the process to a successful outcome.
Right before the project is deemed complete and wrapped up, we invite you to step into your new home and walk through it. We give you the opportunity to explore every room and examine every element. We ensure that the level of craftsmanship meets your expectations and satisfies our rigorous standards. You also receive a clear explanation of how to operate all of the appliances and systems. We want to see you and your family take pride in your custom home and look forward to living a luxuriously comfortable and deeply fulfilling life in it.
