~Share your Dream - We sit down with you, listen to what you want and begin the process.

~Obtain Financing - Pre-approval with your lending institution preps the way and lays the framework for design. We can send you with a general budget to let your lender know what you’ll need.

~Develop a Plan - We bring in the architect/engineer to create your design. This will require both for estimating your project cost and applying for all needed permits.

~Estimate Determined - From the design plans, we lay out and itemize a project estimate. We sit down with you and go over each line item so you can understand the costs associated with your project and what your options are. From here any needed adjustments will be made to your design. This step is repeated till the design and budget are balanced.

~Acquire Permits - All applications, plans, and required paperwork are then submitted to appropriate building departments within your jurisdiction.

~BUILD YOUR DREAM - Upon receipt of all required permits, site work begins. Your dream is underway!
