follow-up question is, Will the person assigned to manage your project be managing other projects at the same time? 9. What can I expect at the end of the project in the way of paperwork and lien releases? The final paperwork generally does include lien releases, final permit sign-offs and some information
equipment and a complete list of subcontractors on the project. Ask about this in advance so you know what you will receive and if you'll need to track something down or document something yourself. 10. Do you have any concerns about what we have planned, or think something might be a problem once we get

Contractors might home in on questions about your existing house and structural system or have some useful feedback about design. Either

Classic Coastal Colonial Renovation - the Ultimate Island

Questions68
I was planning on all white cabinetry, carrera marble on the island and honed black around the perimeter. (And, I’m narrowing down from three possible backsplashes! Eeek!) Now, I'm considering a gray island – and searched some pictures and came across this one. I love the color of your island!
Hi, I also want to put in a thicker slab on the island (2 1/2 inches like yours). Did you shorten your island cabinets to account for the extra height or is your island taller than your perimeter cabinets? My second question is about honed marble. Is it as bad as everyone tries
Hi. I looked but didn't see...Could you possibly share the dimensions of your kitchen and den? We are renovating the same, almost exactly like your beautiful space and have 8 foot ceilings:) So look at your gorgeous layout helps a lot. Thanks.

I love your kitchens and noticed you seem to use honed countertops. I was wondering what the feedback from your clients is on their durability? I much prefer the look of honed but am afraid of etching and staining

Hi, Love this room. We are renovating a garage into a master bedroom, walk in closet and bathroom. Curious about the dimensions of your room, WI and bath. Thanks!
Love your taste and this peaceful atmosphere.Beautiful!
I am in love with this room! I visited your website as well. I know you are located in MN. We are getting ready
ready to build our home in Ohio. I could not find any pricing on your website if I wanted to re create this room. Do you have a listing of your prices? Specifically the rug, carpet, chairs, and drapes. Thanks.
If we lived in Minneapolis, you'd be designing our homes interiors (or I'd be applying for a job). Your website's gallery is stunning, all of the homes have their own character, yet your flare is a subtle undertone in each. My husband and I are fans. I would love to know the manufacturer of

Become Part of the TeamMost people spend more time planning their next vacation than they do planning their house project. Not that planning a house project has to be a full-time job. An architect or a designer can help you understand your role in the project as well as the contributions of other team members

Remember at night, from your living areas, any glass walls will appear as dark planes if care isn’t taken to light the area behind the glass.
