The Cornerstone Concept

Personal Consultation

Contact us via phone or email and we will set up a time to come to your home and speak with you. It is during this time you can tell us your goals and visions. Don’t worry if you’re not clear on the exact style or direction just yet. We will show you samples, designs and ideas, as well as provide our thoughts based on the opportunities available. We will help you gain a clearer picture of what you want, along with your expectations, needs, and time frame. We will answer any questions or concerns you may have – we want you to be completely comfortable and better yet – excited – about this great investment to your home! If after this initial meeting, we both decide we want to move forward, the design phase begins.

Designing your Dream

After speaking with you, we will get to work in drawing and designing the plan. You will have maximum input so we are sure to give you exactly what you want. You will be presented with an exact layout prior to any work beginning, plus any additional suggestions or options our creativity and years of experience may warrant. You will help us in selecting all needed materials and color schemes to fit your taste. We will begin to have a more firm sense of the budget and time frame.

Final Design and Construction Contract

You will be presented with a final detailed design of the project, complete with 3D images, measurements, elevations, notes, and all mechanical and structural logistics. Once you are comfortable and 100 percent happy with the design, we will begin the work to bring it to life.

Build and Enjoy!

Construction will begin and finish based on the time frame we initially allotted. Our team will keep interruptions to a minimum and keep you updated every step of the way. If forces beyond our control creep in, such as weather or other scheduling adjustments, we will work around them to ensure a smooth and seamless experience for you. Once the work is complete, we look forward to you enjoying your new and improved space! As always, we will be available post-construction to answer any and all questions you may have.
