The Home Remodeling Experience

Phone Consult

During our conversation, we'll listen to your preferences and project goals, ask specific questions, discuss contractor preferences, and explore your intended use of the space to begin establishing a budget range. We'll also review your desired project investment and schedule a Site Visit with one of our Project Directors. While we can't provide an exact cost yet, starting the cost discussion and using online tools for preliminary estimates will guide our next steps effectively.

Site Visit

Should we determine that we're a good match, we'll arrange an obligation-free in-home consultation. This visit involves measuring dimensions for an as-built plan of your current space, capturing comprehensive photos and videos, and conducting a concise discovery session to ensure a mutual understanding of your design preferences and functional needs.

Budget & Concept Design Proposal

We translate the insights gathered during our initial meeting into action. Beginning with a preliminary design, we gradually shape an estimated investment range for your project. This phase marks the early stages of your home remodel planning, where collaboration is key. As we proceed towards signing the Design and Development Contract and subsequently the Build Contract, we'll refine this investment range and design plan together to ensure a more precise alignment with your vision and expectations.

Design & Development Begins

Upon acceptance of the Design & Development Contract and payment, Macktown Construction Group initiates detailed design work, encompassing site measurement, conceptual drawings, scope refinement, zoning compliance, material selections, thorough trade partner evaluations have been conducted for budget integration and budget evaluation. This phase ensures precise project planning. We collaboratively define design concepts, select materials, and evaluate budgets to ensure alignment with your vision and financial parameters.

Build Contract Presentation

Following collaborative efforts of the Design and Development Phase to refine the home remodeling design, confirm selections, define project start dates, timelines, payment scheduled, the Build Contract becomes the focal point. The Build Contract is signed along with a downpayment. This phase embodies the shift from strategic planning to dynamic project implementation, ensuring a cohesive and successful remodeling journey.

Construction Begins

Guiding the daily workflow, scheduling tasks, resolving queries, and updating schedules, your Project Manager is your central point of contact.
