remodeling, construction planning


The first step in planning a project with Masterwork Home is information gathering. Helping you identify your personal needs, priorities and lifestyle issues usually involves a visit to your home. We survey the existing conditions, inventory building, mechanical, electrical conditions and requirements. We will assist in developing your personal “wish list” and define project goals and budget requirements.

At Masterwork Home, we begin all projects by establishing clear budget cost guidelines. With over 35 years remodeling and building experience, we can help you form a comprehensive budget plan, covering all phases of your project. We identify specific costs in writing, prioritize needs and detail specifications thoroughly up front in order to avoid any “hidden” costs from creeping up during the project. We know what it takes to do it right and our fiscal planning helps guarantee that you, “get what you pay for.”

Within a few weeks, we'll be back to you to arrange an appointment to review your concept plan. Our goal, in this design phase, is to illustrate conceptually, the overall plan, furniture, equipment placement, and traffic flow. We utilize our talented, experienced staff and the latest in technology to help you visualize and comprehend our design concept for your project.

Your comfort and enthusiasm with our plan, our process, and our estimate, are the essential elements in achieving the commitment phase of your project. Your approval, authorization and financial commitment are required at this point, to proceed to the next level of design.

Once you've approved the concept, we move into the detail and specification stage. This involves developing detailed drawings that accurately depict your selections and enables us to review and establish locations for furnishings and accouterment details as well as determine all finish requirements. Utilizing our extensive sample collection, we spend whatever time it takes to help you get comfortable with your selections. You are going to live with them for a long time. Our extensive planning ensures your satisfaction.

Masterwork Home is very much at ease collaborating with other professionals to help your achieve the ultimate in project planning and construction. We have many well established relationships with a variety of planners, architects and engineers. We'll be happy to recommend the appropriate consultant for your project, or work as a part of your established design and building team.

Whatever capacity we are working in, Masterwork Home generally takes responsibility for facilitating and managing the entire project. Our project responsibilities most often include specifying and supervising the installation of the windows, doors, appliances, mechanical, electrical, lighting and construction details. This ensures a smooth running project, with well-coordinated deliveries, construction schedules and project completion dates. We take this proactive position to ensure your satisfaction through the entire construction process.

At Masterwork Home, we enjoy strong relationships with many experienced, nationally recognized firms that provide the many products and services that go into your project. We deal only with the most reliable firms to ensure your deliveries arrive on time and according to specifications. We pride ourselves in meticulous attention to detail and superior workmanship. Utilizing the finest craftspeople in the area, our in-house installation department supervises and coordinates every project, right down to the finest of details.

Our project supervisor will maintain constant contact with you during construction and personally supervise your installation to insure your satisfaction and comfort with our progress and workmanship. At the completion stage, we will develop a final punch list to eliminate any “loose ends” from lingering too long. Every Masterwork installation includes a follow up visit, to ensure our products and installations are performing well. We will make adjustments, or do some fine tuning (no charge), because no Masterwork project is ever finished, unless you are totally satisfied, even after your project is complete.
