our process

Worried about juggling a surveyor, designer, architect, engineer, and contractor? We've got it covered.

The Big Picture

Keep it simple

Visualizing and creating your dream remodel can be challenging without the proper equipment and people. Typically, it requires hiring a designer, surveyor, architect, engineer, and finally a contractor. We are one of the few remodelers in the Charleston, SC area that can handle all of those.

We've developed a way to simplify that process, because remodels don't need to be complicated. Our team is a one-stop shop, from design through construction, for your project. That's right, one project manager, one point of contact. The result is a team that is very familiar with you and your project by the time demo day comes around.

Over the years, we noticed a need for remodeling firm that could handle every aspect of the process in the Charleston, SC area, so we decided to fill that need.

Our design services include in-house design, budget consultations, assistance with selections, and engineering, so you don't need to worry about juggling 3 or 4 different contacts. Remodeling doesn't have to be complicated!

A Step-By-Step Process

Below are the main steps in the process. We always "follow the process", because it has been tested and proven for many years!

Initial Meeting

This is the first time we will meet on site to look at the project. Our first site visit is FREE of charge; we want to get to know you and get a broad idea of your renovation. During this time, we'll take photos and gather all of the information needed to get a rough budget and a Design & Planning Proposal together. This proposal covers the many hours we will spend in the next phase.

Design & Planning
(2-6 months)

Once the Design & Planning Proposal is approved, we enter the Design & Planning Phase, during which we will assemble all of your selections (paint colors, countertops, trim, etc), meet with you and your family to discuss how we are going to do certain parts of the project, apply for permits, discuss logistics, and meet with our trade partners on site to discuss how the project will be completed.

 

There are many hours spent on our part in this phase, but for good reason! At the end of this phase, you will have a set of drawings, a list of specification and selections, and a construction proposal.

Pre-Construction (1-3 months)

All of that hard work done during the Design & Planning Phase starts to come to fruition here. We start ordering windows and doors, which typically carry lengthy lead times, notify trade partners of pending work, and meet on site to discuss site logistics.

Construction
(2-6 months)

This is the phase we've all been working hard for, but this time, a home remodel will be enjoyable for you, because most of the hard work is already done.

 

Since we've already picked out your tile, paint colors, and countertops, you'll be able to focus on the many unexpected things we can find during a remodel, like rot and termites, or to be prepared for the temporary living adjustments that you'll need to make over the next few months.

Most projects fall within this time frame, but vary significantly based on a number of factors to include: scope of work, client decision timeline, weather, and quantity of finishes.
