finance a home renovation

No matter if you’re planning a whole-house renovation or just a small update, a design-build company is an excellent way to realize your vision. Unlike general contractors, a design-build company is not a subcontractor. Rather than dealing with a designer and a general contractor separately, you will be guided through the entire remodeling process with a design-build company.

In order to fulfill our passion for providing you with dream spaces, we need to be able to bring dream spaces to life. We’d love to tell you more about our unique design-build process and how we can help you build the home of your dreams.


As part of the traditional method of delivering construction projects, a general contractor manages multiple parties and contracts. Thus, you need to hire your own designer and then a general contractor through competitive bidding. Managing multiple parties typically involves a painful process of bidding and rebidding, self-coordinating multiple partners at construction, and rarely staying within budget and on schedule.

A design-build project is delivered by a design-builder and you under one contract. It is becoming increasingly popular to deliver services under one contract, as it reduces costs, improves quality, and saves time. Our company utilizes this method as well.



The design and construction teams are involved throughout the process, continuously communicating with each other. You can enhance the quality of work in your home and promote collaboration, which can often lead to project innovations customized to fit your needs at an affordable price.

Continual involvement from the designer and builder can also eliminate issues that may arise during the material selection and construction phase. Since your designer and builder work closely together, all attention remains on protecting your interests throughout the process.


The design-build method reduces your project’s overall costs through streamlined, consistent communication and integration between design and construction. Due to the availability of complete property information, errors or omissions are spotted early, leading to fewer change work orders. It is common for these issues to arise only on the day of construction or even later in the project with a general contractor.

Design-build makes it easier to stick to your budget since your designer and construction manager know it from the start. In the end, your team will focus on the budget throughout the entire project and come up with innovative and efficient solutions that get you the results you want.

Furthermore, the design-build method reduces the cost of team members by reducing the project timeline.


Because your designer and builder work together, the builder participates early in the process, so construction engineering considerations are included in your design and enhance constructibility.

By involving everyone from the beginning, both the design and construction phases are expedited, with the ability to schedule construction before finalizing the design. A traditional design-bid-build project requires the designer to finalize plans, find and compare competitive bids, and then proceed to construction. Separation between designers and builders can result in bids that are well over budget, requiring re-designing and re-bidding.


As a general contractor, you act as a liaison between the designer and the contractor(s), and may even be involved in disputes between them. You only have one contract when you use the design-build method. One designer. One construction manager. One company. And you’ll always know who to hold accountable.

We choose to work with FBC Remodel because we liked the process they have with being able to see the design before committing to the project. Some of the other companies we looked at required committing to the design without envisioning what the results could look like. This was essential to know who we would be able to do the project with. Around the second time, it was such a great experience, particularly with the people involved with the project the first time. I think they were great communicators and excellent to work with.

Visualizing & Constructing Your Colorado Home Renovation

The measurements taken during our follow-up visits will be used to create a CAD drawing of your home. Use this drawing as a reference to visualize the transformation of the existing space. To help you visualize the final result of your renovation, we use 3D renderings to show you possible design options.

Our options will be presented to you so that you can make changes if you wish. You can expect a result that meets your expectations precisely as a result of this collaborative effort. The building process can begin as soon as you approve the final design.

A detailed timeline detailing what to expect at each stage of construction will be provided by our team. Depending on the scope of your remodel, it will take 7-16 weeks to complete.

You can start your home renovation with our collaborative design services. You can schedule a complimentary consultation today.

“FBC has the process down from start to finish. Great company to work with. Communication was great.”
– Carole S.
Lafayette, CO

“We are very happy with our finished product and look forward to enjoying it for years to come. We had a a pretty good idea of what we wanted to include in the basement and they helped us make it happen. When we got down to the punch list items, they picked up on some stuff that we had not identified, and we really appreciated that and felt like they were looking out for us.”
– Patrick G.

“Design Process an Project Management was top notch! Couldn’t have been more pleased with the communication throughout! The final design was incredible! Seeing the project come to life was a lot of fun. We spend all our time in the basement now. Favorite space in the house!”

“The FBC team was great to work with and managed our project effectively from start to finish.”
– Eric K.

“McKinley was amazing to work with during the first part of the process. She listened to all of our ideas and made a design plan that fit perfectly with how we envisioned our space. She was very helpful with suggestions and making sure we understood the pros and cons of our decisions. She helped us figure out what exactly we wanted and made the dream we had a reality. Our Project Manager, Dominic, was wonderful to work with as well. He picked up right where McKinley left off and made sure we understood the process of construction and what was going on with the schedule. There was a slight delay in our cabinets, which wasn’t expected, but he immediately put it on our radar and kept us updated on the progress. We really appreciated that he didn’t hide from the bad news and that he brought it to our attention. Both of them were great to work with during this entire process and we would highly recommend them and FBC to anyone!”

Customer Reviews

FBC Remodel is proud to Build Joy® for homeowners. See what our customers have to say about working with us.

“FBC did an amazing job with our 1600 sq ft basement. The sales team listened to our vision, offered several options and helped us stay within budget. Our PM was fantastic! We received daily communication with minimal life interruption, realistic expectations and partnered with us to ensure every aspect was covered. They even finished early!!! We had met with 2 other contractors and are so happy about our choice! They accommodated our quirky requests for a brewery room, rerouting our laundry dryer vent, closeting our water piping for access and exterior window well changes. Best choice ever!!!”

Heather R.

“The design/construction approach by FBC produced an excellent finished product for us. We added a large recreation room for pool, TV and games along with a bedroom and bathroom. Ceiling soffits, arched entries and angled walls created a unique and inviting space. The project team and trade partners did fine work and we are very happy with our new basement. All work was completed on schedule and within budget. The best part was having all construction access through the basement window. Our only advice is to carefully review all design details to assure that everything you want is clearly specified in the drawings. Then be part of the team by doing quality control as the project moves along.”

Darrel H.

“We can't say enough about the design team at FBC. We had multiple companies bid on our project and everyone else came back with the same basic design (a good but not spectacular layout). But FBC looked at the space from a completely different angle and in the process was able to create everything on our wishlist including an extra room. The design was elegant and functional and our family now benefits from it every day.”
