With both architectural and construction services in-house, we offer a true turn-key renovation experience from initial consultation, through design and finish selections, to craftsmanship and construction. We have the vision to help you make your house your dream home.
First, our team leader will review your goals and present a design proposal. The design cost is generally eight to ten percent of your construction estimate. For an addition, our team may complete a quick zoning analysis to help the team leader formulate the proposal.
During the design realization phase, we encourage you to share or bring photos to help us tangibly understand your vision. Our designers will propose finish and material selections based on your inspirations. As you finalize selections, our designer will be creating construction drawings to submit for a building permit. In Washington, D.C., the submission and approval process can take several months (it is a little shorter in Maryland and Virginia).
Once we secure the permit, we will start demolition and move into framing, plumbing, electrical, drywall, etc. The punch list of small items is the last segment. The timeline to completion depends on structural complexity and if an addition is involved. After that, you will be enjoying your beautifully renovated home!
