The Timeline of a Remodel: What to Expect

 
 

 
 
We recently had a client contact us about having his kitchen remodeled. Upon discussing our process of completion from designs to construction, he asked a common question we hear from almost all of our clients: “how long will the entire remodel take to complete?
 
 
This is a great question! Everyone wants to know exactly how long it will be until they are able to enjoy their new kitchen, bathroom, or other remodeled space. Unfortunately, there is not a “canned answer” we can offer to everyone because we don’t always know exactly how long certain steps of the process will take. For example, obtaining the required permits could take several weeks depending on the city and the project, which could push back the start date significantly. This definitely isn’t common (in most cases, we receive the permit within 10 business days), but it is a possibility, and we’re sure to educate our clients on the process and timeline prior beginning the work.
 
 
While each project is different and each will have its own specific timeline based on the scope of work, there is a general estimated timeline that we can provide:

A Tasteful Kitchen Renovation in a Fort Worth Historical Home

Our most recent home renovation involved remodeling the kitchen of a historical home in Fort Worth. As a design-build firm based in central Tarrant County, we have remodeled a number of historical homes in this area. While each individual property is unique and comes with its own set of design challenges, there is one thing nearly all historical homes have in common: a lack of space! The narrow rooms and hallways of that era are a stark contrast to the spacious, open floor plans you see in homes today. This is especially true with the kitchen, as original kitchens of the early 1900’s were typically built around a fireplace used as the oven. As you can imagine, transforming a compact historical kitchen into a stylish modern-day one requires a lot of careful planning, space utilization, and smart designing. Along with the challenge of working in a small space, it’s important to keep the integrity of the kitchen in mind. Most homeowners that live in a historical home tend to treasure and appreciate the home’s history. Our designers made it a point to keep the style of that era in mind while updating. Read more
