Project Types

Classic Modern Design Build is interested in all residential project types. We take on projects as small as a bathroom remodel and as large as a completely new house. While we enjoy working in a modern design style, we also like to work in many other styles. Our goal is to meet your needs with a style appropriate to the context, whether that means relating to your existing house, site, or lifestyle.

Design

The process begins with your first call or email to us. We will schedule a time to come and meet with you at your house to discuss your goals for the project. After this meeting we will send you a proposal with our design fee. Upon acceptance of the design proposal, we will measure your existing house or visit your building site. From the existing drawings we will present two or more design schemes and will meet with you to discuss these drawings. Once we have refined a design scheme and you have approved it, we will put together a ballpark estimate of the construction budget for CMDB to build your project.

Drawings

Now that we have a schematic design and an estimated construction budget that meets your needs, we will develop the design into construction drawings. Details will be worked out and, if necessary, a structural engineer will design the structural systems. The drawings will be refined to a point where they are ready to submit for permit. Upon approval of the drawings, we will get final pricing for your project and present you with a construction proposal.

Build

Once you accept the construction proposal, we will submit the project for permits and then begin construction. Your designers will coordinate with the construction team throughout the building process to make sure that what is built meets the design intent. As construction nears completion we will schedule a walk through to finalize the last details and make sure everything meets with your approval. Once we complete any final "punch list" items, it's time for you to occupy your new space.
