The Dollars & Cents

We know what a giant undertaking any remodeling project can be.  That’s why we won’t prescribe “quick-fixes” or use shoddy building materials.  Getting it right takes time (time planning, time designing and time completing).  It’s just that simple.  We wouldn’t have it any other way.

Pricing can vary greatly on a project-by-project basis, largely depending on your investment range, your desired design, and the materials that you choose.  During our initial discussion, we will work with you to help you understand what can work in your desired investment range.

Please take a look at the figures below to gain a better understanding of what some typical lower and higher-end projects may cost.  Remember, these are merely averages based on past work we’ve completed.  Every project is unique, and so are their relative costs.
