The Remodeling Process: Why Choose Reed design build?

Posted by Michele Reed on Mar 3, 2021 9:00:00 AM

 

So, what does the remodeling process look like? How long does it take? Why should I consider going with a design-build company as opposed to an independent contractor? These are all great questions to ask when entering into your remodeling process. It's essential to go over all the options and decide which one best fits you. 

Let's think of this remodeling process like we would a wedding. There are so many little pieces to the puzzle when it comes to wedding planning. It can get overwhelming very quickly. From the decision making, the money invested, time spent talking to various vendors, hitting dead end after dead end. It can get exhausting doing this all on your own, which is why wedding planners are an angel sent from heaven above. 

Wedding planners are your point of contact from there forward. They do the "dirty work" while you sit back, enjoying the process! They are experienced professionals who know the ins and outs of which vendors to choose, which to avoid, what works, and what doesn't. They're there for you every step of the way. They manage your scheduling, communications between companies, contracts, etc. All so you can enjoy the wedding process without the added stress. In many aspects, a design-build company is the same kind of solution to a home remodel project. You work with a team of professionals: The contractor, the designer, the project manager, the production manager, the lead carpenter, and the crew are all under one roof. The plans that are imagined designed, specified, and built come through one group of people. You have one contact that coordinates and provides all the details needed to deliver a beautiful, luxurious space. 

Typically your design-build process is split up into four stages: decision making, designing, permitting, and installation. 

Choosing the right remodeling company is the first decision you'll be making! After that, the fun things start to take place. Such as meeting your designer, establishing a relationship with them, setting up a walk-through, and choosing the right materials. 

After the big initial decisions, the designing stage begins. This is where it gets even more exciting. Our designers will establish the best possible design that fits your budget, style, and taste. What's great about working with a design-build company is we are here to serve you. We use our expertise to guide you through this dream home process. It can be very complicated dealing with separate builders and designers. With Reed Design Build, it's all in one beautiful package. 

Once the designing plans have been completed, we'd make sure all permits are pulled, and every product order has been placed to be received in a timely manner. Our team will take care of everything every step of the way, so you don't worry about a thing! 

The amount of time spent on the installation process depends on a few variables, such as holidays or COVID restrictions. However, on average will take around 6-8 weeks to build! During this time you will see the most progress. 

 
We are so excited for you to begin your remodeling process! Schedule a consultation today!

Aging In Place | A Guide To Independent Home Living

Posted by Michele Reed on Jan 29, 2021 8:00:00 AM

What does aging in place mean? According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, aging in place is "the ability to live in one's own home and community safely, independently, and comfortably, regardless of age, income, or ability level." As we age, it's essential to consider what will make you feel the most comfortable living in your own home. In this blog post, we'll be guiding you on how to live comfortably and independently inside your own home!

1. Consider your surroundings

 

Consider your surroundings for a moment. Do you feel confident in your environment? The community you're living in? We all want to feel comfortable in our own homes. Especially as we age. As we get older, our household needs change. It's something most everyone will experience in life. We find that what once was useful and convenient will not be anymore. That's okay! That's one of the many ways we help our clients. When we sit down at our initial consultation, we go through all your concerns and your vision for your home. We take our expertise and combine ways to make your vision and dream happen in a way that is convenient for you! 

2. Switching Old To New

 

Certain areas in our home become less and less convenient over the years. Things that can be dangerous or uncomfortable to deal with on a day to day bases. For example, going up and down the stairs, reaching tall cabinets, or standing up in the shower. These are areas that we help with! With the right team of people behind you, these are areas that can be fixed to match your current lifestyle needs. Find the independence you crave once again without compromising the elegance of a well-designed home. There are certainly many ways to make your home feel luxurious and convenient all in one package.

3. Finding The Right Home Care

 

SeniorAdvice.com  aims to solve the problem of understanding and helps find the best-assisted living and senior care for seniors and their loved ones. They have built one of the largest directories of senior care providers anywhere and provide several tools and resources, including hundreds of expert-reviewed articles.

Top Remodeling Trends of 2021

Posted by Michele Reed on Jan 15, 2021 7:30:00 AM

It's interesting to look back at the beginning of 2020 and the design trends that came with the new year. It's almost as if those trending natural elements such as wood and earthly colors predicted the need between human connection and nature. When the unpredictable began early last year, we soon discovered that we were surrounded by nothing but noise and chaos. From the constant news updates on our TV screens to having to limit the social interaction we all crave, we quickly discovered our desire to be immersed in the calming environment we were initially born into...nature!

As we swim quickly out of 2020 and jump happily into this brand new year, it's the perfect time to take a look into this year's remodeling design trends!
