Being in the remodeling industry in several different capacities over many years, I have witnessed many mistakes that contractors made and the poor decisions that homeowners made.
With the intent to make remodeling projects more professional and pleasant for all those involved, we created Design Build Planners. Our unique, award-winning project design and development process offers homeowners a smarter approach to home remodeling. We prepare our clients with design options, accurate budgets, detailed work scope, scheduling, and product selections. From there, we discuss the next step, which is how to get the project built. A homeowner can choose to build themselves (DIY), GC or manage the project themselves, hire their own contractor, or work with our recommended remodeler from the DBP Preferred Network.

When the Design Build Planners initially discuss a design and build remodeling project with a homeowner the planned scope begins with three broad categories.
- Got to have it
- Really want it
- Would like to consider it
Typically, the homeowners have done some of their own research prior to the initial consultation. This research may be from the internet, magazines, home and garden TV, or visiting other homes. Usually homeowners have their own initial “got to have it” and “really want it” list ready. As part of a Design Build Planners consultation, homeowners are shown other completed projects that have characteristics and similarities to what they are trying to achieve.
