What It Means When You Want To Renovate Your Entire Home All At Once

A remodeling project like this typically starts with the design phase, where the homeowner and our design team work together to create a vision for the updated space. This may involve selecting new materials, finishes, and fixtures, as well as determining the overall layout and flow of the home.

Once the design phase is complete, the renovation process begins. This often involves demolishing existing walls, removing old fixtures and appliances, and updating plumbing and electrical systems. New flooring, cabinetry, countertops, lighting, and other finishes are installed, and the layout may be modified to better suit the needs and lifestyle of the homeowner.

A whole home renovation can be a major undertaking, often requiring several months of work and a significant investment of time and money. However, it can also be a rewarding. The results are a beautiful, functional, and personalized home that reflects the unique style and preferences of the homeowner.

The Design Phase

The design phase is critical to the success of the project because it sets the tone for the entire construction process. The goal of this phase is to create a comprehensive plan that will guide the construction team and ensure that the final result meets the client’s needs, preferences, and budget.

During the design phase, the design team typically conducts a site visit to assess the current condition of the space and gather information about the client’s goals and vision for the project. They may also conduct a detailed analysis of the existing structure, including measurements and documentation of existing systems such as plumbing, electrical, and HVAC.


After gathering this information, the design team begins developing a preliminary concept or design that takes into account the client’s preferences and budget. This may include sketches, floor plans, and 3D renderings that provide a visual representation of the proposed changes.

The design team will work collaboratively with the client to refine the design and make adjustments as needed. The end result of the design phase is a comprehensive plan that outlines the scope of work, budget, and timeline for the project, and serves as a roadmap for the construction phase.

Before Renovation Begins

Before you start the journey of renovating your home, the two things that should have already occurred are:

  • Planning: This involves determining what changes need to be made, setting a budget, and developing a timeline for the renovation.
  • Design: Once the planning phase is complete, the next step is to create a design plan for the renovation. This may involve working with an architect or interior designer to create drawings, 3D models, or other visual representations of the changes to be made.

The Renovation Process

When construction is ready to begin and you have signed off on the design plan, we can get started by hiring a general contractor that will work with us to make sure the project stays on track and within budget. This part of the process includes:

  • Demolition: Before any new construction can take place, any existing structures or finishes that need to be removed or replaced must be demolished.
  • Construction: This phase involves the actual building of the new structures or finishes, including framing, electrical work, plumbing, flooring, painting, and any other necessary tasks.
  • Finishing: Once the construction phase is complete, the finishing touches can be added, such as installing fixtures, appliances, and furnishings.
