Our Process

We have been building and renovating homes for a long time.

We’ve seen a lot. We work hard to overlay your vision with our experience and dedication to the craft.
We are empathic, communicative, and enthusiastically transparent.
Every project has potential. Our vow is to help you realize the potential of yours.

Concepting

We are excellent listeners—you can tell us anything and everything. That’s how we uncover and understand whatever it is you’re hoping to create: something elegant, tasteful, fun, useful, remarkable. A home so wonderful that you’ll never want to leave it.

And we dig in. Deep. Deep enough to see what you see and with the same clarity and passion. We make it a point to understand – at both a practical and emotional level – how you intend to connect with, inhabit, and celebrate your new space.

And then we crunch: numbers, ideas, materials, schedules, value propositions. We identify and evaluate all aspects of your project – paying special attention to unique feature requirements, complexities, or idiosyncrasies. We create a time and cost-specific proposal down to the smallest detail.

Constructing

You will have a dedicated project manager – a resourceful, experienced, I-wish-this-person-could-stay-around-forever professional who works exclusively on your project, at your job site from open to close, with you, from start to finish.

We’re big on time-honored things like craftsmanship, elegance, taste and aesthetics. Sometimes that means blending new with old. Sometimes it means paying special attention to a persnickety modern detail. No matter what, we never lose sight of who you are and why you hired us in the first place. You don’t settle for “good enough” and neither do we.

We remain continually “out in front” as the work progresses, responding to changing circumstances with agility, forward-thinking and intelligence. That’s how we ensure that both schedule and workmanship – and you – remain uncompromised.

Caring

We do a lot of things to take care of our clients. Chief among them is providing worry-free upkeep and maintenance. Custom homes require attention and vigilance to remain in tip top shape, so whether we built it or not, we make sure that what you have endures.

We begin with a complete audit of every inch of your home, leaving no stone unturned in the process (seriously, we literally turn over all the stones.) Then we sit down with you to understand what you need and want when it comes to maintenance. We put together a plan, adjust as needed, and get to work. We will stick around for as long as you like – months, years, decades, you name it.

The point is, we’re here for you, for whatever you need for as long as you wish.

Friends & Trade partners

You know that friend of yours who would show up to help at a moment’s notice, any time of day or night? We are so proud of our relationships with these kinds of people, all of whom are eager to contribute to working alongside us on your project: architects, interior designers, technicians, craftspeople, artists, and others.

These are people we know well, through years – sometimes decades – of hard and intense work together. We believe in them for their proficiency, their experience, and their craftsmanship. Most of all, we believe in them as people.
