Why Choose Us?
There are a lot of large remodeling companies out there with impressive showrooms, professional sales people, and support staff to keep it all running. And many of those companies do a great job. Even so, a pretty big chunk of your remodeling dollar goes to feed the overhead monster. What’s more, those different departments don’t always see your project the same way – the designer, the construction superintendent, and the chief financial officer all have different agendas. Who wins? Well…
Here’s what we do bring to your table… and why it matters.
Being trained in the fine arts and crafts – painting, ceramics, and furniture making – teaches a different way of seeing the world. The languages of color and texture and proportion and scale translate directly to home remodeling by giving us a way to see new possibilities. Design is where we begin to translate that vision into a workable reality that supports the way you and your family live.
Great design is only as good as its execution. As Anthony Burgess said, “Art begins with craft, and there is no art until craft has been mastered.” We have spent years refining our skills as a hands-on craftsman, and We’ll put these skills to work on your home remodeling project.
Good design and high-level craftsmanship are essential to a high performance house. But there’s more to the story. Homes are made up of complex and interrelated systems that must be designed to work together. Applying well-researched building science principles, even to historical renovations, makes your home healthier for your family, more energy efficient, and more durable. As a certified green builder, We make sure your beautiful home is also built smart, so that your house performs well today and for many years to come.
If there’s one thing that sets us apart, it’s understanding how to create value. Even though We’ve always loved fine arts and crafts, So from our first consultation, we’ll run all design and construction decisions through the value filter.
Often people (and contractors) see budget constraints as something that gets in the way of the best possible project. We see such constraints as liberating rather than limiting. Constraints of style, of size, of budget: these are good things. Constraints sharpen and focus our home remodeling efforts. In fact, if money is no object (and for some, it’s not), then we need to be especially careful that your remodeling project retains all the integrated elements of good taste.
Now, working to budget shouldn’t be confused with cheapening the project; remodeling on the cheap rarely creates value. But sometimes there’s another way, a better way, to accomplish your remodeling goals than with the original plan. For instance, it might make sense to add more square footage than originally planned because the return in per square-foot value is so much greater. However, it might actually be a better value to build smaller than you were thinking, but with greater utility and satisfaction than you could have imagined.
AND IT ALL COMES TOGETHER in a special synergy that just works.
