The Process

Process-Design-4Step 1: Co-Create

Every project needs a starting point. Our goal is to create that piece that you just can’t find anywhere. Together we will co-create it into existence.

The first step is to meet with you in your home to talk about the project you have in mind. This informal site visit (usually accompanied by a cup of coffee or some cases a glass of red wine ) is our chance to see your space, see how you use it and what we can do to make it so much better. This is your chance to bring any design ideas, wishes and thoughts to the table after all this is your dream piece so why not have it built exactly the way you want it. We like to call this “co-creating” even though we come equipped with an extensive creative and design background we will always put your ideas and suggestions first, we truly want you to be happy with the final results and this means putting aside any preconceived ideas and building to suit you and your individual needs.


Process-Design-6Step 2: Design

Through the magic of computer software, we get to tweak the design of your piece until it is just right. Measure twice, cut once.

This is where we put pen to paper actually to be perfectly honest we mostly use a computer program to take our preliminary sketches from our first meeting and input them into a drafting program known as CAD. By using a computer program we are able to provide you with several varying options and give us complete control and flexibility to make quick changes and revisions without added cost to you. Providing you with several options and price points allows you to make an informed decision and gives you a better understanding of how the finished piece will look and relate to the rest of your home. Our drawings are all fully dimensioned and to scale so you can be confident that the design you sign off on will be the same as the piece that arrives at your home on install day.


Process-Create-4Step 3: Build

With Design in hand and approved, it is off to the workshop for us. This part is fun; we get to fire up the power tools. Who wouldn’t love that?

Once we have a signed off a drawing from you we can begin construction. At this time we will provide you with an approximate time of completion. As each piece is unique and custom our lead times will vary from each project. When we are approximately two weeks from completion we will set up a time that works best for you to install or deliver you piece.


Process-inspire-4Step 4: Installation

The moment we have all been waiting for. The Grand Entrance. Rolling out the Red Carpet. Whatever you want to call it, this is the day when your piece finds its home.

The day you have been waiting for ever since you said “I just can’t seem to find that piece I’ve been looking for” has arrived. Our professional team will deliver and install your custom piece of furniture or mill-work and leave your home in some cases cleaner than when we arrived. Because all our building and finishing is done off site in our wood shop you don’t have to worry about dust or wet paint in your home. A small amount of dust may be created while installing any built-ins; this will be fully cleaned up and wiped away before we present you with your beautiful one of a kind piece.

Now you sit back relax pour yourself a glass of wine and enjoy the lovely piece that you yourself had a part in creating.
