Design + Build Advantage

For most homeowners, the thought of taking on a remodeling project or building a new home can seem like an overwhelming undertaking. Where can I find an architect that is reasonably priced and listens to my ideas? How can I be certain that the builder I choose is honest and does quality work? How will I ever make all the material selections and have them work well together?

That is where we come in. Clients often ask us “What is design-build”? Design-build is the ease and convenience of using one company throughout the entire project from start to finish. Here are a few of the advantages of choosing a design-build company:

  • Avoid Misinterpretations. Using one company can eliminate misinterpretations and finger pointing when a mistake is made. We hold sole responsibility for all steps of the process – from start to finish.

  • Design for Budget. An independent architect may be able to design your dream home - But how much will it cost you?  We can usually give you a realistic idea of cost at the initial meeting based on your wants and needs for the space.   We make smart design recommendations to help you stay within your budget without compromising good design or quality.

  • Streamlining the Process. Having one company that can do it all streamlines the process, meaning a shorter process from beginning to end. It also means having one point of contact instead of multiple – which results in less stress on you, the homeowner!
