finance a home renovation

A design-build company is among the best ways to bring your ideas to life whether you’re planning a whole-house remodel or just one room. A design-build company is different from a general contractor. When you hire a design-build firm, you are guided through the entire remodeling process, from concept and design to construction, rather than dealing with a designer and a general contractor separately.

Being able to bring dream spaces to life is the first step to fulfilling our passion for providing you with the space of your dreams. We’d love to tell you more about our unique design-build process and how we can help you achieve your dream home.


With a general contractor, you manage multiple parties and contracts as part of the traditional construction project delivery method. Therefore, you must find your own designer and then a general contractor through competitive bidding. The process of managing multiple parties typically involves a painful process of bidding and rebidding, self-coordinating multiple partners at construction, and rarely stays within budget or on schedule.

By contrast, design-build is a streamlined construction project delivery method that involves one contract between you and the design-builder. A single contract represents this increasingly popular method of delivery, which improves quality, reduces costs, and saves time. FBC Remodel uses this method as well.



Throughout the process, communication between the design and construction teams is ongoing. It is possible to enhance the quality of work in your own home while promoting collaboration, which can lead to project innovations customized to fit your needs at an affordable price.

Additionally, continuous involvement from the designer and builder can help to eliminate problems that may occur during the material selection and construction phases. Together with your builder, your designer protects your interests throughout the entire process.


Through streamlined, consistent communication and integration between design and construction, the design-build method reduces the overall costs of your project. As a result of complete property information, design errors or omissions are spotted early, resulting in fewer change work orders. Usually, these issues do not arise until the day of construction or even later in the project with a general contractor.

As your designer and construction manager know your budget from the beginning, design-build makes it easier to stick to your budget. Therefore, your team will focus throughout the entire project on the budget and come up with innovative and efficient ways to get the results you want.

Last but not least, the design-build method shortens your project timeline, reducing the cost of team members.


Due to the fact that your designer and builder work together, the builder is included early in the process so construction engineering considerations can be incorporated into your design and improve constructibility.

By involving everyone from the beginning, both the design and construction phases are expedited, allowing construction to be scheduled before the design is finalized. A design-bid-build project involves the designer finalizing the plans, finding and comparing competitive bids, and then proceeding to construction. If designers and builders do not work together, bids may be well over budget, requiring re-designing and re-bidding.


With a general contractor, you serve as the middleman between the designer and contractor(s), and can even be involved in disputes between the two. When you use a design-build method, you have only one contract. 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.

Because we are a design-build firm, we have the opportunity to create a unique space and experience for you. In addition to the typical builder-grade materials you will see in many remodels or newly built homes, our award-winning designers have access to high quality, custom materials. We can create a space that is truly unique and beautiful that is exactly what you want and need. We will provide you with the skilled designers to walk you through making the best choices for your space and budget rather than limiting you to a short list of cabinet, flooring, lighting, etc. options.

You can get on with living your life while your remodel is being completed by leaving the planning, monitoring, and construction details to us. You will then be able to enjoy your new space knowing that the project was carefully monitored and completed according to your specifications!


If it’s a bathroom remodel or a whole-house renovation, you should tailor each element to the individual’s needs. FBC Remodel offers unique and personalized design plans to homeowners looking to renovate their living spaces. We accomplish this through our design-build process. Contacting us about your remodeling project will lead to a free consultation.

Following that, we’ll schedule a series of follow-up appointments to continue planning your renovation. After each appointment, our team will ensure that we understand your design goals. From start to finish, from design to construction, once we learn about your dream design, we will take the necessary steps to bring it to life.

Visualizing & Constructing Your Colorado Home Renovation

A CAD drawing of your home will be created using measurements taken during our follow-up visits. To better visualize how the existing space will be transformed, use this drawing as a reference. We will use 3D renderings to show you possible design options, allowing you to get a sense of the end result of your renovation.

You will have the opportunity to make any changes to the design as we present our options. As a result of this collaborative effort, you will receive an end result that exactly meets your expectations. Construction can begin as soon as you are satisfied with the final design.

Our team will provide you with a detailed timeline for your remodeling project, detailing what to expect at each stage of construction. Your remodel will be complete within 7 to 16 weeks, depending on the scope of the project.

Our collaborative design services are the starting point for your home renovation. Contact us today to arrange a free consultation.

“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.
Boulder, CO

“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.

“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.”

Michael S.

“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.

“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!!!”
