Our Process


1. Organize your ideas on the project.

What do you want to accomplish with the remodel? Are considering adding living space? An office? How will this space be used, and who will be using it? Create a list of  wants and needs?

2. Do a preliminary sketch or write down some of the things most important.

Use magazine clippings that have features, concepts, and ideas you like. Write down the dimensions of the space to be remodeled, making note of required wall changes, possible alternatives, etc.

3. Contact us 703 684 0860.

We will ask you some basic information over the phone, and then one of our consultants will contact you to set an appointment for looking at the project.

4. The initial appointment.

On our first visit, we will talk with you about the project you are considering. We’ll go over any ideas or sketches you may have, and then take our own detailed measurements of the space. We will also take photos of the project area, for reference in working out our proposal for your project. Establishing a budget range is an important part of this visit. Our consultant will be able to give you an approximate dollar range for what is proposed.

5. Follow-up Session.

Typically, on the second visit, our consultant will have a preliminary drawing of the project, as well as an initial scope of work with a preliminary budget range.

6. “In The Works.”

Once approved by the owners the project is scheduled into production. This begins the coordination phase for scheduling and all the components of the project.

7. “How long?”

Every project is unique. Site access, finish work, change orders/plan revisions, etc. can all impact the finished date. Our craftsmen have extensive expertise in remodeling assuring that your project will be done on time, to your satisfaction, and on budget.
