Designs & Plans

Some people can draw, some design and others can build.  We do the whole job from design through completion.

We design about 95 percent of the kitchens and bathrooms we remodel and probably half the additions we build.

Below you see examples of Proposed Views and the Actual Photographs of the remodeled project.

These are just a few examples of the many Mother-in-law suites, Senior modifications incorporating our Certified Aging-in-Place-CAPS training and construction, kitchens, bathrooms and other home additions, remodeling and renovation projects which we’ve designed and built.


PLANS FOR THE BUILDING PERMIT

The examples of various plans, shown below, aren’t as interesting for most people, as the computer generated camera views. However, it is the plans which determine if what you get, will look like the cool camera views of a proposed project. Most of the camera views are for the client, with the exception of elevation views, some of which the building departments require.

True Design-Build is rare in residential construction.

Design and build is sometimes mistaken for the term Design-Build.  The first is the normal order of most projects.  The second is the term which designates a faster paced project whereby changes are instituted during construction.  Most projects have a small change or two.  Large projects, with larger budgets benefit from the most planning prior to construction.  A large project can still incorporate huge changes during construction if, the Owner and Builder work together well and have a bond of trust.  Without such trust and a sense of teamwork, large changes require delay until all details can be drawn, details written, signed and changes paid for in advance.  Otherwise, changes of a large magnitude can ruin a project and a working relationship.
