THE 9 Step REMODELING PROCESS
The exact process that each project goes through from beginning to end is always different, however, a general step-by-step guide for your remodel may look something like this:
1. In Home Design Consultation
In our design consultation, we discuss your project and get a good understanding of what you are looking for in your remodel. We take photos, discuss your ideas and make design suggestions.
2. Design and Rendering
Our design fee covers measurements, plan elevations, possible layout options and 3D rendering. We meet to discuss the design elements that are incorporated in your remodel. Like a funnel, we begin to narrow down the scope of your project which may take a few meetings.
3. Pre-Remodel Permits and Plans (if needed)
We can finalize the design and details and begin securing permits by submitting plans and paper work to the city and county.
4. Demolition – Removal of Debris
The demolition step consists of removing old appliances, cabinets, flooring, countertops and anything else that needs to go. From here, we can assess the condition of the floor, ceiling, walls, and decide if corrections need to be made to the plan.

7. Interior Finishing and Painting
We install backsplashes, trim, plumbing fixtures and finish floors (if required).
8. Fixtures, Appliances and Cleanup
In this final phase we touch-up finishes, install new appliances, lighting fixtures and finalize any punch list items.
9. Enjoy your new space!
You've done it! Now enjoy your new space. We've even been known to throw an open house for your new kitchen.
5. Plumbing, Electrical, Floors and Drywall
If your remodel requires new light fixtures, plumbing, HVAC, or cable or speaker wires, it would be installed at this point. Once that is finished we can install insulation, drywall and flooring. Then paint.
6. Installation of Cabinets and Countertops
Installation of your cabinets and countertops is next, meaning your new kitchen is really starting to take shape.
