The Most Crucial Step of Your Remodeling Project Is Knowing Why You Want It

The decision to renovate is never something to take lightly.  Remodeling costs time, money and disruption to your home that is unavoidable.  Nonetheless, homeowners launch into remodeling plans looking through rose-colored glasses and conjuring dreams of a perfect living space. Although intentions are good, such ambitions are vague at best and can end in disaster. Therefore, the first step in any remodeling project is to find your why.

While You Wait: Excellent Planning Time for your Remodeling Project

It’s easy to picture brilliant ideas for your home, only to have a designer come in and point out the challenges of knocking out the wall that supports your entire living room. During the waiting period, however, the planning, or brainstorming, phase gives you time to manage your expectations while simultaneously gaining inspiration so that your ultimate goals are realized. This is the perfect moment to share your Pinterest pins and magazine clippings so that your design team can bring a unique touch to your home.

Now Is the Time to Choose Your Design-Build Team

If you’re thinking of having a whole-house remodel or even a kitchen or bath remodel in 2018, you’re almost out of time to secure a place in line. The busiest design-build teams are already booked through the summer and are signing contracts for work that won’t happen until fall or even into 2019. It is worth the wait, though, and here’s why:

Surviving a Whole-House Remodel

With more people choosing to remain in their existing homes rather than trying to sell them and then buy new homes in the Seattle market, whole-house remodels have become much more common. But just because you choose to stay in your current home doesn’t mean you have to keep the same design, structure, or colors with which the home was built. 

A Million-Dollar House Is Not What It Used to Be

When I first started my business nearly eight years ago, the average family home on the Eastside was in the $400,000 - $750,000 range. Today, these same homes are upwards of a million dollars, and a starter home in our area that needs significant renovation starts at closer to $600,000. 

How Women Are Disrupting the Construction Industry

The ability to quickly establish trust and then create and maintain long-lasting relationships with prospective buyers is more than just a nicety; it is a must-have skill in today’s marketplace. We work in an industry that is not always known for its ability to listen to and nurture clients, and while women are not the sole inspiration for the changing face of the construction industry, women are bringing something to the industry that is a game-changer.

Wishing You All a Very Happy Thanksgiving

The kitchen is the heart of the home this time of year. Imagine the possibilities with customized cabinets and endless storage solutions, guaranteed to make the pickiest dinner guest, stop and ask, “How can I have a kitchen like this?”

The Design Phase of Remodeling: Aesthetics

We have discussed how important functionality is to your remodeling project – how your home remodel should meet the needs of your day-to-day life. Once we understand what you need out of your remodel, the next step is to consider what you want . The smallest details can make the biggest difference, and you don’t want to discover that certain design choices clash once everything is installed.

Bellevue Spa Retreat

This impressive master bath spa retreat ended up being one of our favorite projects. Not only did it turn out beautiful, but it was technically challenging for us, too. And thanks must go to Roshele Allison for her spectacular design that allowed us to create such a tranquil and unique space.
