Total Home Renewal™ Process
Total Home Renewal makes your old home feel completely new, with the benefit of staying in the neighborhood you love and keeping much of your current usable space.
Solid, inspired design is critical for a Total Home Renewal, both inside and out. While all design considerations are indeed important, the critical details are:
- Integrating the look of the new space with the existing space and creating seamless transitions between all the resulting spaces.
- Ensuring that the scale and character of the new home suit the neighborhood.
These 2 factors make the difference between a successfully designed “new” renovated home and a house with an awkward addition.
Other design elements that are important to consider:
Efficient Space Re-purposing
In many homes, physical space isn’t the issue but the way in which the space is being used. While redesigning your new spaces throughout your home, we take very serious consideration on how your current space can be used to successfully reach your goals for your new home.
Incorporating as many of the wish list items as your budget will allow
When considering remodeling your entire home, it is easy to let your wishlist grow: more bedrooms, an extra bathroom, an expanded master suite, a workout room, an office or library, a screened-in porch or deck…and the list goes on.
When you work with Encompass, you will receive effective design leadership along with accurate price estimates as you build your plans allowing you to make informed trade-off decisions that are based soundly on your budget.
Evaluating Your Long-Term Needs
You want your new space to grow with you and give you the opportunity to live in your home for a long time. Our designers are trained to help you evaluate your lifestyle now and in the future. We are experienced in designing universal living and “age in place” designs that allow you to retire in your home.
When you are remodeling your home, it’s the perfect time to consider the green options that reduce your energy bills and save valuable resources. Our designers work with you to decide which options you want to include since many green choices today are comparably priced.
A well-designed plan is only part of the puzzle. A home must be well-constructed, on time and in the safest manner possible for a total home renewal project to be a success.
We are diligent about ensuring that our construction team understands all of the details, expectations and desired results that were discussed in the design process. This is the biggest benefit of working with a Design/Build firm rather than hiring a construction company to build from plans by an independent designer or architect.
The turnover from design to the construction department includes everyone at Encompass who is responsible for the success of your project: design, pricing, production and you. Considerable time is spent prior to starting your total home renewal ensuring that you are comfortable with the team’s understanding of your expectations.
During the construction process you will receive project schedules and meet with the a leader on the construction team weekly to cover your questions or concerns.
Achieving Beautiful Results
Your home will be truly a reflection of you. We guarantee that completely renovating your home will change the way you live.
