Why choose a Design-Build firm?

Simply stated, a design-build firm will save you time and money. A design-build firm is involved in your project from start to finish, which adds efficiency and effectiveness to the process. When the same group that designs your  project also builds your project, more attention is given to pricing and scheduling in the design phase. The costs of all aspects of the project are taken into account early on in the process allowing you to come in at or under your budget. In other words, no surprises.


Q. Why should i use a professional designer?

A. A designer is not necessary in all situations. A good designer will be able to determine this during your initial consultation. Regardless of which direction you go in, it's always important to have a conversation with a certified designer to know what the best next steps are.

Q. How long will it take before my project can start?

A. The answer depends on a number of variables:

  • Is permitting necessary
  • How quickly you make decisions on layout and product selection
  • What is the project backlog of your chosen contractor
  • What the lead time is on the finish materials selected

These variables should be taken into account when designing and scheduling your project.

Q. Can you help choose materials?

A. Yes, we guide our clients through the process with our 3D architectural software. This software gives you realistic images of what your product choices will look like in your newly designed space, similar to HGTV.

Q. I know you are a contractor, but do you work with other contractors?

A. Yes

Q. We want to DIY, do you offer design services only?

A. Yes
