Our Process

"My goal is to provide you with all the tools you need to make great decisions in reaching your remodel goals.


I use my extensive experience in construction, residential design,

value engineering, and interior design to guide you through the

design and remodel process."

In-Home Design and Consultation

A no obligation 90-minute appointment is usually all it takes to help you get a sense of the possible, the practical, as well as some context and perspective on how to think about and evaluate the pros and cons.

As-Built Plans

Detailed measurements and photos are used to capture all existing elements, including room dimensions, window and door locations, mechanical locations, fireplace and built-in elements, millwork details, and key decor elements such as art and furniture pieces.


This provides a solid foundation for developing

your new plan.


Design Stages

Concept Drawings

A key element of my inspirational design is enabling you to visually feel your makeover to ensure the design has the desired impact on your home - comfort, elation, inspiration, and joy.  

This stage always includes walk-through videos and/or 3D CAD renderings that are photo realistic so you can try out the new space and really get a feel for it  - see your new space from every possible perspective. 

The drawings are presented via Zoom where we can explore together all aspects of the plan. 

This includes a number of iterations as we work our way toward your perfect solution.

Pre-Construction Drawings

Pre-construction drawings - these drawings include demo and electrical plans, and all of the cross-sections and notes your builder will need for accurate pricing.

Architectural Approval

Many projects require approval from an architectural control committee and this is a key element that I provide.

Guiding my clients through the product selection process is something I do for about 50% of my projects.


Beside my knowledge on the products, showrooms, and trends; I bring my expertise in making the process smooth, efficient, and fun.


Decisions are, of course, based on price, function, performance and value - my guidance on the decisions is so they “feel” right and fit perfectly into the holistic design vision of your project.
