The Remodel Process - From Concept to Completion

Posted by Devon Shryock

At SEA Construction, we have the unique ability to work with you all the way from design through the build. This gives us the joy of seeing you through your project from beginning to end - and it allows you to work with a company you trust all the way through your remodel.

While every remodel is different, we wanted to give you a quick look into the process, so you know what to expect when working with us.

As defined on our Services page, you have three options when you first come to us. You may already know what you want and have a home drawn set of plans. You may already have an architect and just need a builder. You might want to work with us all the way through from design to build. Every option works for us, but in this article we are going to go ahead and assume we are starting from option #3 - you want to work with us from design all the way through the build.

Design

This process is super fun and creative. We will listen to what your needs and wants are and create a design based on a) your home’s structure and b) your needs and wants. There will have to be visits to your home, measurements taken, and many conversations and questions.

During this phase of the remodeling process, communication is key. We want to get everything correct and exactly as you would like it during this phase so we can give you an accurate idea of how much the entire remodeling project will cost, how long it will take, and how extensive it will be.

Once you approve the design and understand the costs and timeframes we are looking at, we can get the build section of the remodel started.

Build

This is when you will see the design in action. Necessary permits will be obtained, zip walls and other plastic sheeting will go up, and demolition as well as construction will begin.

Here are the key things to expect during your build:

  • Communication. You will be communicating and we will be communicating on the progress of your project, on any bugs we are running into, and any changes which need to be made to the original design. If a change order occurs, this will be in writing and your approval will be needed.
  • Elation and - possibly - some fear. While you are seeing your dream come into reality, you may also be a little worried about certain aspects of the project. Perhaps you’re having a hard time visualizing the end result. Let us know what your concerns are. We may be able to help you “see” the end result before it is created in real life.
  • Change. The look of your home will be changing. There may be a delay or an early delivery. That final touch may take a day longer than expected. In construction we have to be flexible and will work hard to let you get on with your day-to-day routine. However, sometimes there are changes we need to go over with you so you are aware of them. You may also have changes you want to communicate with us. This is all part of the process.
  • Some discomfort. Unfortunately blocking off a portion of your home and reconstructing it comes with some discomforts like noise, minimal dust, and fewer creature comforts. Have a plan B for washing the dishes if you’re getting a kitchen remodel. Utilize your garage to store things if you’re updating your living room. Becoming flexible may not be totally comfortable, but it’s worth it in the end.

The build is when you have to keep your eye on the prize. Your dream home is coming into reality!

Finally, the last step is one most companies don’t tell you about. That is the unveiling. This is the moment when everything is completed, our teams have left, final inspections have occurred and you get to use your new space. This is our favorite part of the process - and we hope it’s your favorite too!

If you want to go through our design and build process, contact us today. We can’t wait to make your project come true!

Debbie I have tried to make certain albums private too, Fiona – there is even an ‘edit album privacy’ button on individual photos, but this only allows you to edit the text, not the privacy! Really annoying as I wanted to create a private album for a competition and didn’t want to publish it till all entries were submitted, but it seems all business page photographs have to be &#;p86;2ublic⾒, grrrr

One other thought... interesting the parallels between transcension and Buddhist ideas of enlightenment. In both cases you have an expansion of the ego beyond the individual body. The structure of the ego (such as it exists in the realm of information) is still there in some form but now the boundaries between it and the world are difficult to discern. Transcension is a kind of technologically-mediated enieehtenment.Intlrgsting version of Bodhisattvas too. :-] http://pnjntgph.com [url=http://uggtoyl.com]uggtoyl[/url] [link=http://rtwapez.com]rtwapez[/link]
