Five Reasons to Hire a Designer


Remodeling projects can be overwhelming. With work, family and everything else that goes into your day-to-day activities, all the decision making of re-doing that outdated kitchen or bathroom can seem daunting. The following are five reasons why hiring a designer is a valuable service and a great place to start when getting ready for your next project 

A designer will help provide hassle-free decision making because: 

* Materials are brought to your home for selection. 

* There is no need to spend evenings or weekends running around town. 

* They will help you define your design and create a clear focus.

They think outside the box by: 

* Providing creative design solutions. 

* Being aware of new trends and technologies. 

* Staying "in the know" with continued education and being members of trade organizations.

They help with project management by: 

* Making sure the design intent is executed properly. 

* Working with contractors to make sure the project runs smoothly and stays on schedule. 

* Acting as a representative on your behalf.


They save you money and work within your budget by: 

* Specifying the right materials for your project. 

* Providing you with trade discounts. 

* Helping you avoid mistakes.

They have resources/connections which: 

* Help speed the design and planning phase with established relationships with suppliers and specialty trades. 

* Cater towards different design styles and budgets. 

* Can come in handy in complicated situations.


People are often willing to spend a significant amount of money on their remodeling projects, but don't want to pay the additional 5-10% more on the cost of a designer.  In the end, this extra expense is typically absorbed with the trade discounts a designer can provide.  Their expertise and advice can also make a huge impact on the overall look, feel and functionality of the new space.  They can give a project that "wow" factor that one is hoping for, as well as help avoid the many pitfalls that inevitably come up along the way.  Design advice is valuable, and many general contractors including our company, offer it in-house as an added service.  It provides the customer with a resourceful and experienced team, resulting in a smooth process and ultimately a beautiful new space that will bring many, many years of enjoyment.

Update on Walt:


Last month, I announced that my '73 RS Camaro was "going under the knife" for a big-time update, and that I expected to be done in time for this quarterly newsletter. As they say, better laid plans.....


SCOPE OF PROJECT: Convert drivetrain from carbureted 325HP small block engine with a 4 speed transmission, to a modern "LS" fuel injected 525HP engine with a new 6 speed transmission. This combination will not only have 60% more hosrepower, it will get about triple the gas mileage. (Currently 8.5mpg, should be about 24mpg highway.) Also perform various luxury and suspension upgrades so that it drives, rides and handles like a modern car while maintaining it's classic looks.


ITEMS COMPLETED: Engine is rebuilt and installed. Transmission with new clutch is installed. 4 wheel disk brake conversion is complete. All new suspension is installed and complete.


ITEMS YET TO COMPLETE: Cooling system, fuel system, exhaust system, driveshaft, wiring harness and computer. Still need to complete the air conditioning system.


Stay Tuned: Walt should be done in 4-6 weeks. But to tide you over until the completed project is included in our next (Fall) newsletter, please see the photos below and feel free to click on the following link for even more pictures: Pictures of Walt
