Are you planning to remodel your bathroom, kitchen, or your whole home? It can be exciting to imagine the possibilities. However, many remodeling projects result in frustration, unexpected costs, and results that don’t live up to your expectations.

The solution? Godfrey Design Build contractors.

Design Build remodeling is a process which allows you to hire one company who will handle the entire project, from design to construction and everything in between. This is in contrast to the traditional, often frustrating remodeling process where you would be responsible for hiring and coordinating the work of designers, architects, engineers, contractors and subcontractors.  

At Godfrey Design-Build, we’re a dedicated design build remodeling firm and we’ve been helping homeowners throughout Massachusetts’s North Shore.

The Design Build Process

From initial consultation and design through construction & beyond!

The Design Build process starts with you! When you contact Godfrey Design-Build, we’ll get to know you and discuss:

  • Your property

  • Your goals

  • Your timeline

  • Your budget

Most importantly, we’ll talk about the vision you have for your North Shore home. The flexibility of the design build process means that we’re able to help you bring your vision to life. That’s the beauty of design build: a unified team of designers, architects, contractors, and construction professionals will be working together to solve problems and create a finished product that you’ll love.

Before starting any construction, we’ll schedule an on-site meeting with a designer. There, you’ll have a chance to review your wish list, including any must-haves. Following this meeting, we’ll develop a preliminary design which you’ll have the chance to review.

Usually, a few meetings, reviews, and revisions are needed to finalize the design.

Once the design is approved, we’ll visit the site with our trade specialists so they can view the space and understand the existing conditions.  We’ll also consult with them after product selections to identify any potential issues and get final pricing.  

Now we’re ready to go shopping! We’ll look at cabinets, countertops, tile, appliances, hardware, and everything else that’s needed to complete your home remodeling project. We’ll get your approval for these as well as for the total price of the job.  We’ll sign a build agreement and then you’ll put down a deposit.

After we obtain the necessary permits, we’re nearly ready to start construction!

But unlike some remodelers, we don’t dive straight into construction. Instead we hold a final meeting with the entire design build team where we:

  • Anticipate problems and brainstorm solutions

  • Review the goals of the project, as well as the timeline and budget

  • Discuss every team member’s roles and responsibilities

  • Set schedules and deadlines for your project

Then it’s time to start building!
