Are you thinking about adding on an addition, renovating your basement, or perhaps designing a whole new kitchen? Whatever the project is, you’re probably wondering what the process is. How long will it take? What happens next? We work with homeowners weekly, walking them through the ins and outs of their project timeline. So we thought we would share an example of the process behind renovating a kitchen to help give you a better grasp of the project timeline.
Here is an example of the timeline behind a kitchen renovation –
- The process behind renovating a kitchen:
- Homeowner and owner Ed meet to do a walkthrough of the project
- The budget and contract is agreed on
- The first step is to finalize the project design and drawings
- Our team works alongside designers, homeowners, and the project manager to develop drawings
- In some projects we don’t work with designers, depends on the budget.
- We schedule the demolition crew, arrange for dumpsters and pull the right permits
- Demo is completed
- Framers to build the space out
- Rough plumbing completed
- Rough electrical work completed
- Did you know we have our own team of electricians over at McDonald Electric?
- Schedule all inspections for the electrical and plumbing work
- Walls are insulated
- Framing inspection is completed
- The team closes up walls
