Settling in – From Design to Living
Meet & Listen
The sky’s the limit when it comes to your re-design, and we provide everything you need to make your dreams a reality! During our first meeting in Anne’s showroom, we get a feel for your personality and your spatial expectations. Bring your inspiration: images, sketches, notes, examples, questions – whatever you’ve gathered for your dream space, so we can truly understand your vision and needs. We consider project logistics by collecting information on your budget, completion timelines, payment and retainer expectations, and overall project goals to make the process easy and convenient for you.
Anne Marie and a contractor visit your home to discuss the realities of your perfect space. Taking measurements in order to ensure a perfect fixture fit, we provide a consultation to get your vision on the right track.
After your consultation, we discuss solutions to your remodel. In order to bring your dreams to life, we need to review the realities of the build. From planning to installation, it’s important to make sure everything makes sense spatially, functionally, and financially for you.
Design & Selection Phase
This is the stage where we firmly establish the details of your design. We sketch out finalized ideas and review your selected concepts. We make sure your selections are approved to move onto contractor bidding, where we establish a quote on your materials and secure the work with a deposit. At this time, we work with the contractor to create an ideal timeline for completion.
Bids & Quotes
Here we discuss the total cost of the project based on your chosen design and selections. We establish payment terms and scheduling at this time. Whether you choose one of our insured crew contractors or a qualified outside recommendation, we make sure everything is set in stone to move forward – including any necessary permits. After your approval and paid deposits, construction begins upon the delivery of all materials to ensure a smooth demolition and rebuild process.
Create Installation Binder
Your installation binder contains valuable materials for your contracting crew. During the build, your team will access this binder for drawings, specification sheets, dimensions, electrical plans, and more. This installation binder is the gold book that allows your crew to work efficiently and complete your project smoothly.
Using the installation binder, your contractor begins the deconstruction and rough-in phase to begin making your dreams come true. Installation & build takes 3 to 4 months, so we try to prepare you for all the ins and outs construction brings. At moments it may feel like a rollercoaster- some days you can see the front-end progress, while other days, progress is made behind-the-scenes. For most, the light at the end of the tunnel starts shining once the countertop is installed! The entire build & installation process is dependent upon the scope of your project.
Enjoy Your New Space
Your dream is now a reality!
