The most helpful aspect of this meeting for us was having the architect brainstorm ideas for our home and help us reevaluate our wish list, narrowing it to a more realistic list of possibilities.

The architect we met with was knowledgeable, professional, and personable. She had a line of sight into what it will take to create the home of our dreams.
Remodeling starts with your existing home–its style, its assets, and its liabilities.
Renovation Design will help you see where you are and show you options for where you can go. We have traveled this path a thousand times, so let us help you through to an exciting and fulfilling conclusion to your remodeling journey.
What is possible in terms of renovating my home? Can we take out that wall? Move those stairs? How do we maximize the space we have before we consider adding on? What will my house look like if we do add on? Can this dated house be made to look modern and stylish? How can we improve the circulation and flow in my house? Is there hidden potential in my home that I can’t see?
CREATING THE MASTER PLAN
With multiple ideas and concepts now on the table, we need to prioritize and synthesize the best of these into one master plan. The saying “you can’t have everything” certainly applies to design, so the challenge is to maximize the function without supersizing the budget! We will bring a fresh eye to help understand how your family lives and what you need to change or add to facilitate daily family routine as well as entertaining family and friends.
DESIGN DEVELOPMENT AND CONSTRUCTION
Time for our concepts to become reality. The team expands to include a contractor to keep us ever aware of the budget as we make selections for materials (flooring, counters, windows, etc.) and equipment (appliances, plumbing fixtures, HVAC systems, etc.). An interior designer may be used to help with aesthetic selections, and a structural engineer will be required for removing walls and adding spaces. You will want a good team as you see your house torn apart prior to being reinvented as the home you have always dreamed of having.
THE GOOD LIFE
Your ‘new’ home will look wonderful and should make you happy every time you walk in. However, the true magic may be in how your home now supports your family members and your lifestyle. With sufficient space to gather your family and friends together and the capacity to efficiently store all of your ‘stuff’, you will find your stress levels at a new low. The comment we hear most often is “Why did we wait so long to do this?”
