INITIAL DISCOVERY CALL

Discovering Your Dream Home Together

We start by ensuring Douglah Designs aligns with your project in a complimentary discovery call, delving into your vision, which sets the stage for understanding your project’s unique elements. Then, we will schedule a formal in-home consultation to review the project’s scope, budget, and timelines, laying a solid foundation for collaboration. If you choose to move forward, we solidify our commitment with a project development agreement and a retainer, marking the commencement of your project and the start of our collaborative journey toward your dream home renovation.

RESEARCH, DESIGN,
AND DEVELOPMENT

The Transformative Journey

Our team immerses itself in your project’s details, beginning with a thorough site measure. We then create preliminary design options for your review. Upon approval, we initiate the estimating process to offer a budget range. Once the budget is confirmed, we proceed to finalize material selections and precise design plans. This culminates in your signing a Home Improvement Contract, granting permission to initiate construction and bring your dream home renovation to life.

PERMISSION TO BUILD

A Hassle-Free Start

Prior to the commencement of construction, we navigate the process of obtaining all necessary permits. Our dedication to transparency and compliance assures that your project aligns with regulatory standards. Furthermore, we meticulously coordinate orders and assess delivery times to ensure products arrive precisely when needed, thereby streamlining workflow and minimizing delays.

CONSTRUCTION & PROJECT MANAGEMENT

Building Dreams, Brick by Brick

Approximately two weeks before construction commences, our project management team holds a pre-construction site meeting with you to align expectations and set the stage for seamless execution. This involves a thorough review of project details, timelines, and specific considerations, fostering clear communication and collaboration. As construction begins, our team coordinates a series of tasks, starting with demolition, framing, electrical, plumbing, and HVAC. After the rough work is inspected and approved, we proceed to close walls and install drywall. The meticulous finish work follows, covering flooring, cabinetry, moldings, millwork, tile work, painting, along with plumbing & light fixture installation. To add a personalized touch, we also handle furniture installation and styling, culminating in a newly renovated space ready for you to enjoy!

YOUR REALIZED VISION

The Big Wow Reveal

Following a few weeks of enjoying the beauty of your newly transformed space, our dedicated team conducts a walk-through session. This provides you with the chance to pinpoint any areas needing attention, creating a punch list. A skilled team member then collaborates closely with you to address and resolve each item. This intricate process ensures every nuance of your vision is realized and perfected, resulting in a home that surpasses your dreams.

PROJECT CLOSURE

Transformation Complete

This phase signifies the triumphant conclusion of your home remodeling journey. Once all punch list items are addressed, we present you with a comprehensive Client Binder containing a detailed record of your renovation journey, including selected paint colors, and product warranties ensuring lasting quality. This serves as your guide to enjoying and maintaining your newly transformed space. It’s more than the end of a project; it’s the commencement of a renewed living space tailored to your dreams. And with that, your dream home renovation is complete!
