  2. Connection
    1. Fill out our Lead Form on our Home Page
    2. Let us know a little about you and your project.
  3. Discovery
    1. This is a phone call that lasts about 10 minutes.
    2. It helps us get an idea of if we are the right contractor for you.
      1. We could get a couple of results from the discovery call.
        1. Set up a site visit to better understand your scope and ideas.
        2. Decide that right now is not the correct time to set up a site visit, but perhaps in the near to long future.
        3. Agree that we are not the correct contractor for you.
  4. Site visit
    1. By the time we are done with the Site Visit, we can usually start going down two different roads. The Preliminary Building Agreement or a Proposal for Construction.
      1. Preliminary Building Agreement (PBA)
        1. The PBA is an agreement between us and the client to produce drawings and a price.
        2. We use this any time we need drawings. Usually for larger projects such as additions and alterations. Anytime you need a permit, you will likely need some sort of drawings.
        3. We also use this time to fully plan out and price a project so that there are no surprises or hiccups along the way.
        4. The PBA has a cost that fluctuates depending on the project size.
        5. The PBA includes a Proposal for Construction.
      2. Proposal for Construction
        1. The Proposal for Construction will give the homeowner peace of mind that their project will have a fixed and guaranteed price from us.
        2. We can only guarantee the price because we spend the necessary time on the front end of the project measuring, calculating, and talking to our trade partners, using our experience, knowledge, professional training and on the job training to make sure that we have looked over every angle and detail that could come up.
  5. Planning Phase
    1. Once we have a Proposal for Construction, we can start the planning phase. This is where we schedule the work and materials as well as any equipment we will need for the project.
    2. The planning phase usually only takes about a week to set everything up. The exceptions are special order items (items not in stock at local building supply houses or big box stores such as Home Depot and Lowes).
    3. The exceptions are generally windows and doors, but could also be framing members, designer electrical or plumbing fixtures, certain exterior cladding, etc.
  6. Construct
    1. Construction phase. This is where the rubber meets the road, and we take your project from zero to completed product.
    2. We have a permit to construct, we have the materials to construct, we have the manpower to construct, and we have the knowhow to construct.
    3. We hire only excellent, knowledgeable carpenters to lead our teams and our apprentices are always trying to learn and better themselves and the projects they are a part of.
    4. We pride ourselves on teaching the newer generation the proper way to build and conduct themselves.
    5. We take great pride in turning in excellent work in a timely manner, our name will be in your mind for many years, and we would hate for that to be a negative thought.
    6. We keep up with the ever-evolving standard building practices by completing continuing education and attending trade shows to see new construction technology. Everything we do in this business is to benefit our homeowners in the long run.
    7. Profit is a result, not a reason.
  7. Parting Ways
    1. As we turn over the Certificate of Occupancy, we also offer our 10-year limited workmanship warranty.
    2. The warranty is transferrable to new homeowners if the home is sold. Please see our Warranty Agreement for details on how to transfer the warranty.
    3. You can rest easy knowing that anything we built will be around for a long time and it will have been built with longevity and strength in mind.
