Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is a Design and Build construction firm?

The difference between a traditional construction firm or individual contractor and a design and build firm such as ours is, simply put, the people building your project also design it. By integrating design and construction, we are better able to create a design solution that fulfills your wants, needs, and budget. The relationships we cultivate with our clients, from preliminary design through construction, ensure good communication and minimal problems.

Q: What should I know before I remodel or add on to my home?

Make two lists: A "must-have" and a "wish" list. The first list includes things you can't live without-new air-conditioning, a granite kitchen counter, a larger shower, etc. The second list is for features you can sacrifice to save money.

Collect magazine pictures of things you like, to help describe what you want. Know your budget. Contractors are often asked to bid on designs way out of the homeowner's budget. Work with an experienced design + build contractor. Tell the contractor your budget, so they can help design a cost-effective project. A good contractor will not inflate their bid to match your budget.
