This process would be used for a bathroom, kitchen, basement, addition, new home, etc.

DR Services - Planning - Design - Build
  1. When a call is received in the office we will briefly discuss the project that is to be completed, timing of the project and set an appointment for us to meet you in your home or office.
  2. We can start to detail the scope of work to be completed, inspect the site for possible problems that might arise and take some basic measurements of the area to be remodeled. We will provide an estimated budget price for the work discussed and leave you with a feasibility study. The feasibility study will provide a rough budget and a basic scope of work. If the budget and scope of work are acceptable we will ask for a deposit and proceed with the list below.
  3. We then return to our office to work out a design, start to specify the larger cost items and assemble a budget.
  4. We will then set up another meeting to go over the design with our design program on a laptop to help show the scope of work and design.
  5. If the scope of work and budget appears to be workable we would then enter into a Design Build Agreement that includes a deposit for completing the design, specifications, blue printing and budget.
  6. Once the design/blue print is completed we would finalize a proposal, sign a build contract containing a full scope of the work, finalize the terms, and apply for the permits.
  7. When we receive the permits we would start the project by setting up a pre-construction conference with the sales/design person, the project manager/lead carpenter and the homeowner. This meeting is set up to make sure the details are passed on to the project manager/lead carpenter and gives the client a chance to ask any final questions before starting the site preparation.
  8. We then complete the design and scope of work as described. If there are items that need to be changed or added we would write an additional work order for anything over $1,000.00. If the additional work order is less than $1,000.00 the work would be completed on a time and material basis and billed out once the task is completed.
  9. We set appointments with the clients throughout the project to confirm the scope of work is being completed as expected.
  10. We complete a final walk through when the project is finished to ensure everything was completed to the proper specifications and check the quality of workmanship.
