It all starts with you. Your aspirations, needs, lifestyle. Our award-winning designers invest the time to truly understand your goals and desires and then skillfully work with a design team t o create a space that fits your life and budget.
Our collaborative process means we’re in constant communication with you, so there are no surprises. You’ll get daily communication throughout your build process from a dedicated, expert project manager.
Do you want a beautiful kitchen? How about a basement that flows with the rest of your home? If you are looking for a truly remarkable space, then follow these simple steps as we walk you through our design/build process.
OUR DESIGN/BUILDING PROCESS
We’re here for you. Reach out via phone, email, or the Contact Us form on this site. We’ll arrange a free in-home consultation appointment that is convenient for you.
We’re excited to listen and understand how your home is and isn’t working for you. Our number one priority for this visit is to learn what your needs are. How do you currently use the space? What do you wish it was like? How should it evolve with family in the future? Your dedicated designer will share our philosophy and explain our design/build process further. If we seem like a good match, we’ll move on to the design process.
At your Home: If there’s time, this step can take place during the first appointment. If not, we will come back at a mutually convenient time to create the “as built” drawing of your space.
As Built: Your designer will spend up to two hours in your space, creating an exact “as built” CAD drawing of the space that includes structural and mechanical features. Then, we work to turn an as-built drawing to an as-dreamed design.
Your design team will have worked out several plans that turn your needs into beautiful, smart designs. Our clients are amazed by the way our experienced designers bring their plans to life. We’ll walk through 3-D renderings to help you visualize your new space. You’re an important part of this meeting and an integral member of the design team, so be ready to collaborate. Your engagement is essential for creating a space that changes not just your home, but the way you live in it.
FINAL DESIGN & DETAILS MEETING
In this meeting, we will review final construction drawings and the menu of pricing options. Within the construction drawings you will see all detailed elements of your project. Full elevations and construction notes are completed. Within the pricing menu you will see how and which design elements impact the cost of the project. In this meeting, we bring the design and budget together, select a construction start date for your project and sign construction contracts.
Construction of your space will take between 7 and 16 weeks depending upon the scope and complexity of your space. You will receive a detailed construction calendar and weekly updates throughout the project.
Welcome to your new space!
Your new space is ready to be shared with the people you love! Enjoy!
ON TIME ON BUDGET GURANTEED
We are committed to providing you a design and remodel experience like no other. We know you’ll love the FBC process. We recognize that you can’t wait to enjoy your finished space with your family and friends. Our team takes pride in our work and stands behind our promise to you that your project will be on time and on budget… guaranteed
We are really happy with how the overall project was managed from coordination with the trades, keeping things clean and minimizing impact on the rest of the house. We are still amazed that all this got done in the time that it did.
The team had pride in their jobs and wanted us to be happy with the project. Our PM would many times clean up after the tradesmen for a couple hours. It was always clean, and even our neighbors would comment on it when they came over to see the progress.
I have so much love for the entire team and my “new” house. Everything is so much better that I ever could have dreamed. Everyone should go with these people who I now call friends. Extra mile every time. Love for everyone!
-The Shanika Family
We absolutely love our new space. Everyone involved in it’s design and creation have been wonderful, communicative, helpful, and have shown up and done the job they said they would do.
