HomeOur Process

Call or email our office to set up a day and time for one of our experienced designers to come and take a look at the space you want to renovate.

From there, we can send you an estimate and make any changes you’d like. We will work with your occupational therapist, various healthcare providers and family, if requested, to ensure the renovations suit your specific needs.

A project manager will then be assigned to your project, and a start date will be given and the commencement of the transformation begins!

There is no job too big or too small that we can’t take on. Our goal is to keep you at home in a space that is functional, provides comfort and independence.
