Clear communication, no surprises

Turning a client and architect’s vision into a home that is outstanding in both form and function is an inspiring and complex process. It takes substantial planning and clear communication — so we work hard at both.

In an ideal world, we begin with a comprehensive set of drawings and specs that leaves little room for misinterpretation. In the real world, construction often needs to begin before all decisions are finalized. So we make sure everyone has the information they need to make decisions about design, materials, budgets, and schedule. Our process keeps everyone on track in terms of the larger vision and scope. We ensure that everyone involved, from our clients to our project manager to subcontractors, knows exactly what needs to be done, how long it will take, and what it will cost, with no surprises.

When the process goes smoothly, it becomes a welcome part of the story of your home. We have also created an extensive network of reliable subcontractors — people who work hard at what they do, and who know how to work as a team.  Years later, when you find yourself still admiring a hand-turned balustrade, a custom tile floor, or some other small detail, you’ll think back to the excitement of your home first being built, and to all the skilled people who made it happen.
