If a whole house remodel or addition is in your future, we’ll show you how easy it can be to transform your too-small or outdated home into a dream remodel that will fit your family’s lifestyle in every way.

Whole House Remodel

Once you decide on a whole house remodel, it can be difficult to know where to begin. It’s a complex process, but our goal is to help make it an enjoyable one for your entire family. Whole house remodels require careful attention to detail right from the start, and our team is here to walk you through each step, helping to keep you from being overwhelmed as floors are ripped up and walls come down.

Starting with our initial consultation and into the design phase, we take your present and future needs into consideration. An experienced design-build company like ours helps you imagine not only how you’ll use your home right after the remodel, but throughout the coming years. For example, if you want to add a family room or study, we’ll show you how some simple planning now will let you convert that space into an in-law suite in the future.

Or maybe you’re eco-conscious and own electric cars – now’s the time to design a space for a charging station. You can also take this opportunity to change outdated plumbing and completely re-wire an older home, updating your electric panel and installing USB outlets throughout. You’ll also want to think about new windows and doors, the existing roof and siding, and more.

A whole house remodel is made up of a lot of custom details specific to your home’s architectural style, desired finishes and features, and your family’s needs. Custom cabinets, wine cellars, game rooms, master suites, aging-in-place, innovative lighting, and smart technology are just some of the options available to today’s homeowners.
