Major Home Remodeling

From gutting down to the studs to second floor additions

A major remodel is sometimes called a "gut remodel" or down to the studs remodel. This type of remodeling usually consists of rearranging the floor plan, adding an addition, master suite or extension on the home, and generally includes new windows, electrical, plumbing, and HVAC systems.

We work in homes that are unoccupied. The best outcome is achieved when we can work with the client and designer collaboratively to develop the scope of work, floorplan, the specifications, and timeline for the project to start or be completed.

Every project starts with a budget. Then we craft the project to the client's budget. Sometimes the project has to be done in phases for the budget and construction costs to align.

We guide you through the entire building process and help you make informed choices with confidence.
