There will be other design meetings along the way to decide exterior options, flooring and other interior selections.
Starting the Build
The first phase of construction will begin with digging, foundation, framing and roofing. Once framing and roofing has been completed homeowners will meet with our electrical, plumbing and HVAC contractors to go over the layouts. After rough ins are complete, its time to insulate the walls.
Put Some Color on the Walls
The next phase is sheet rocking, tape and texture, and painting. Sarah will gather paint samples to help homeowners decide on the perfect shades of color for their home. The best way to choose a paint color is to see it in the space itself. Sarah will narrow down the colors to make selections easy for clients.
Next is the fun part, the interior details! You’ll get to see all the finishes you choose come together. Cabinets, Doors and trim, flooring, tiling, lighting, plumbing fixtures, and railing will all go in.
