Kitchen Remodeling Walkthrough

The general word about house building

Believe it or not – the two photos above are the same kitchen! We were able to almost double the space of the kitchen and create a very usable space. We’re remodeling experts. We can design the kitchen of your dreams. Most of our kitchen remodels include one or more of the following:
Update kitchen cabinets, countertops, walls and floors with a fresh, new look.
Expand the existing kitchen to add more space, often including a new island, breakfast nook and more storage.
Building a new custom-designed kitchen and remodeling the existing kitchen into a new family room, great room, or even an extra bedroom!

What’s it going to cost?

The first question you’re probably asking is, “how much is this going to cost?” The answer is going to vary based on the size of your kitchen, the scope of the project and the type of finishes you select.

Of course, your project is unique. That’s why we’ll start with a design and proposal specific to your space and requirements. Here’s how your job will proceed:
Initial meeting and consultation – You talk, we listen. Once we understand.


3-D Rendering of Kitchen

Your requirements we’ll come up with ideas. When you’re ready, we’ll turn those ideas into a 3-D design and a complete, detailed written proposal.
Design Revision – You’ll review our design and give us your input. We’ll make modifications and give you a new proposal of the cost of the project.
Contract- We’ll give you a detailed, written contract explaining everything we’re going to do. The contract will include a payment schedule that’s tied to milestones. It will also include allowances for materials. These allowance figures are based on the types of finishes you are interested in. The values of the allowances are based on actual prices from our vendors and are not “best-guesses.” They allow you to stay within your contract budget. The contract also explains that any change orders are to be approved by you -in writing – before any additional work is done.
What’s a change order? A change order is additional work that is requested by you, outside the scope of the contract after work has begun.
Begin Work – First, we’ll pull the required city permits. Work in your home always begins by securing the other areas in your home from dust and debris. This includes walls and carpets.
Select Finishes – We will accompany you to our vendors where you will select plumbing fixtures like sinks and faucets; tile; granite, marble or other solid surfaces; and cabinets. We’re always by your side to answer questions and provide advice.
Continue Work- Work will continue every day with minimal (if any) downtime. You’ll constantly be updated about the status of your project via phone or email. You can always reach us with questions – and you’ll get answers right away. Work will include inspections from the local building department to make sure everything is up-to-code.
Complete Work – Once work is complete we’ll ask you to go through.


The Finished Kitchen

Make a list of corrections. This is called the “punch list,” and it typically includes paint touch-ups and minor items that are part of every project.
Enjoy Your New Kitchen – This is the most important part, and it’s why we treat every project like it’s our own home.

We’re sure you’ll be 100% satisfied. We offer a 1-year warranty on defects from material and workmanship. In fact, almost all of our clients have hired us for more than one project. How many other contractors can say that?
