If this sounds daunting, it isn’t! We’ll take the time to explain every step along the way.

In this step, we enter into a home improvement contract together based on the design, drawings, and scope of work.
SHOPPING DAY! Our Favorite Day. We will provide you with a web link to assist you in selection shopping from the comfort of your home yourself for your dream space at no charge or at your request.

We provide our homeowners with a preliminary estimate after the initial consultation. If we’re a good fit for each other and you’re comfortable with our preliminary estimate the next step would involve a Project Development Agreement (Or PDA).
