Who Will Build Your Next Remodeling Project?

This entry was posted in Home and Family Lifestyle, Home Remdodeling and tagged , , , , , , , , , , on by .
Design Build Planners works as project designers taking our clients through the design and development portion of a remodeling project. This includes the conceptual design using dollhouse overviews and CAD, written scope of work with line item pricing, +/- options, design appropriate product selection allowances (along with introductions to Design Build Planners  Showroom Partners), and calendar schedules outlining project timelines. At that point, approximately 70% of our clients elect to use one of our full service, turn key, Network Remodelers. You can read about what separates our remodelers here. How do the other 30% of our clients get their projects completed? There are three options:
  • Build it themselves
  • GC it themselves
  • Use a remodeler outside of our network
Below are two reviews from clients who used DBP's design and development services, but chose a remodeler outside of our network.

The modern home is always evolving. It’s easy to get inspiration, but most homeowners don’t know how to start. When I speak to LSPS clients, most want to incorporate trending designs into their remodel. However, once we start visiting showrooms for materials, they sway from one concept to another. It’s easy to do so with a variety of possibilities in front of you. I always advise them to have a design in mind, whether it be traditional, transitional or contemporary. From there, it’s easy to mix and match materials for your room. For example, a contemporary design often consists of clean lines, a traditional design often features ornate details and a transitional design combines both worlds.  With a design in mind, one can move forward with design trends, such as...
