Our System

Our 10 Step Remodeling System

Creative Spaces Remodeling removes the uncertainty and stress of remodeling your home with our proven step-by-step system, developed over owner John Johnson’s 30 years in the industry. We focus on customer service throughout the entire process, engaging with you to ensure a seamless experience and to avoid surprises. You can count on us to be direct, detail-oriented, and flexible from start to finish, to create the remodel that matches your desires and needs.

Step 1. Meet & Share

Think of us as your “remodeling therapists.” Why are certain elements important to you? Why do you want to renovate? Why are you unhappy with your current design? During the initial consultation, we will go over the complete picture of your project to begin developing your new vision.

Step 2. Going to Work

Creative Spaces will visit to take measurements and photos of the existing home. We will also assess the foundation, electrical, plumbing. mechanical systems and any structural or site concerns.

Step 3. Getting it on Paper

At this stage of the process, our designer and/or architect will draw what we call “as-builts” (drawings of your existing home), which are the critical starting point to the development strategy for accomplishing the new design. We will then start creating preliminary drawings (basic design concepts) with solutions to your shared challenges, desires, and budget.

Step 4. Meet & Assess

To ensure that we are on the same page and that your vision is fully understood, we will reconvene at this stage to review the preliminary design drafts and evaluate the direction of the new designs and their impact on your budget.

Step 5. Tweak the Design

During this step, we will make any essential adjustments to the design, that you require. Also during this stage, Creative Spaces will bring critical framing, electrical, plumbing, mechanical and excavation subcontractors to the site for a detailed cost analysis.

Step 6. Revise & Repeat

We will revise and adjust the designs and the scope of work as many times as is necessary, creating a project that remains within budget while meeting your needs. Only then is a contract prepared and submitted to you for approval.

Step 7. Permit Process

With the contract signed and approved, we will begin the task of creating a full set of permit drawings which will be submitted to the county. Once the permit is approved, any additional modifications requested by either the county or the client are added, resulting in the “working” construction drawings.

Step 8. Ready to Roll

Next, we develop the construction schedule and finalize pre-construction decisions. This includes staging the work area, finalizing materials and paint colors, identifying items with longer order times, and other important details.

Step 9. Start Construction

Now is the time to start the actual construction. At this stage, you will already know exactly how long the project will take, how much it will cost, and what you are getting.

Step 10. Enjoy Your Remodeling Project

You can now take satisfaction in the fact that your project meets all of your expectations, solves the challenges you shared with us, captures the essence of your home and your personality, and was completed within your budget.
