Modern Farmhouse update

Design Design/Build Remodeling

Last year, a homeowner agreed that the design/build process was best for their upcoming addition and remodeling project. Their contractor, Schrier Contracting, LLC, knew that their satisfaction would be increased if they were included intimately in the design process of their project. Their list was quite succinct:

  • 2-car garage addition
  • laundry room/storage
  • home office
  • kitchen remodel
  • and, more light in living space
In addition to this, they wanted the project to fit with the existing style and look of their home, AND, they wanted to keep the project within their financial goals as well.

Check for more project info on their Farmhouse Addition project page

Based upon the results of their project, and their happy faces, the design and construction of their project definitely met their expectations. Here are a couple of photos of their new kitchen.   Project built by Schrier Contracting, LLC and designed in collaboration with Design Solutions, Inc.

Communication is key to a good remodeling project

Over the years, we've had the pleasure of working with hundreds of clients with dozens of contractors. The sad projects are the ones that we've been asked to rescue: those projects where the original architect/designer messed things up so horribly, that the owner fired them, and hired us. These are sad because it could have been so much better the first time around. The main complaint with these projects, and any project we've seen that goes awry, is a huge lack of communication.
