3 Keys to a Successful Remodel

Form, Function, & Finance


     The key to any successful remodeling project is a good plan. To begin, work with a talented design/build firm that will help you carefully consider and ultimately incorporate three basic principles into your design: Form, Function, and Finance.


First, choose your form.

     What kind is your ideal form? Do you prefer the clean lines of contemporary? Or the classic look of country style with exposed beams? Your personal style comes into play here, to aid you in your decision, we partner with Jeanette Coulter, owner of Design Philosophy LLC., to help; her years of experience in interior design might be exactly the input that you're looking for. 


Second, what function does it have?

     Your project has a function, what is it? Determining the function of your project will help improve the end result. Do you need more room for entertaining? Maybe your kitchen cabinetry doesn't have the efficiency that you need; whatever it may be, we can help through every step of the way.


Finally, determining your financial budget is essential.

     Everyone has a budget, what is yours? It is essential that you have someone to give an honest quote for the project and keep it from going over budget. It is to your advantage to work with a company that you can trust to be candid about money. 


How can you finish your remodel successfully? Balance. 

     Balance is the key to success. Finding a company that meets your needs and keeps balance to everything is essential. Finding a balance between Form, Function, & Finances will yield a project that will meet your needs. 




  • Choose your style; country, colonial, contemporary, fusion...etc.

  • Interior & exterior designs that complement the whole house.

  • Integrating your new space into your landscape and neighborhood. 


  • How does your project fit your lifestyle?

  • What is the function of your remodel?

  • How will the traffic flow affect the room?

  • How can we incorporate the current structures into your new design?



  • What is your budget?

  • Will the company fit your budget?

  • Will the company properly identify the budget properly?

  • Determining the budget in the beginning of the project often saves clients 6-12 months on redesign time in the event of a miscalculation
