hi there!

I help homeowners transform and revive existing kitchens into fabulous, functional spaces through design and construction.  It's what I love.

 

Creating a cohesive renovation design plan --mixing existing elements with fresh new design components-- is where I shine.  As the GC of the project, when it's time for construction to happen-- details  and communication matter when managing a project. 

My background includes US Army Medic + Nurse, journalist and 22 years in the construction industry. When I am not remodeling kitchens, I am spending time with my adopted Jack Russell, Bambi, and exploring the world with my husband, Basy.

HAPPY CLIENTS

"HSD gave great attention to detail every step of the way. We had the entire project completed on site, which was very helpful if any questions came up during the process.

Refinishing our cabinets took about a week, yet we had access to our kitchen almost the entire time.
 
The results are phenomenal---we will have the team back to work on our basement soon."
 
--Watkins Family

"This was my second time painting my kitchen. The first attempt was with larger paint company who completed multiple projects per week. Within a few years, my cabinets began to show wear.
 
HSD explained the products they were using and the importance of quality cabinet finishing---and not simply hiring a paint company. The difference is clear, and my kitchen is happy." 


--Tan Family 

"Julie, Eric, Tracey and crew were simply top notch. A kitchen renovation is an investment of time and money, and you need professionals with the same mindset. Julie’s design insight and responsiveness was so appreciated. She was honest in her opinion and never grew tired of answering questions over the course of 6 months. Eric’s attention to detail resulted in top quality, factory finished cabinets that are so smooth and durable. The Remodel Studio will offer you personalized attention and the quality you deserve. They give you the ability to trust their knowledge and the process. Couldn’t be more please with our kitchen and know it was money well spent. Highly recommend! Thanks, Remodel Studio!"

Frequently Asked Q's

What services do you offer? 

We love kitchens! The Remodel Studio offers residential design + contracting services with an emphasis on kitchen remodels. Our remodels may include just the kitchen or span the full main level and sometimes second level to include flooring, wall paint, ceiling texture, carpet, handrails and more. 
I have never remodeled a kitchen before, what does a project like this cost? 

Don't worry---most of our clients are remodel newbies. It's something most of us only do once or twice. The investment amount is the  most asked question and the most difficult to give a quick answer to!

An accurate quote must be based on accurate permitable plans, with specific material selections. 

To translate---we need to deep dive into exact selections, design and make sure the plans are safe and to code. We pride ourself in a low percentage of change orders by taking time early in the project to build a specific scope paired with finish selections. 


Entry level cabinet refacing projects with new countertops, tile and light electrical paired with light modifications are estimated to start between 35k -  $50k.

New kitchen builds start around 70K for stock or entry level cabinetry,  but many clients opt for semi or custom builds in the range of $100-160k. 

Curious about your specific floor plan or options ---we always offer a complimentary estimate after our initial phone or video consult, emailed to your inbox. The initial estimate generally falls within 20% of the final quote, based on information discussed. 

Financing available with one of our finance partners, ask us! 
I am overwhelmed---I don't know what I need...

Let's chat--we are happy to answer you remodel questions. Set up a video call and we will deep dive into both design and contracting questions. It's complementary and you will receive an initial estimate after we discuss your project. After you receive your estimate, we offer a meet and greet. An opportunity for our team to take a look at the project and chat with you in more detail. 
Do you offer stand alone design?
Almost all of our design clients move to the build phase with us. Our design process starts with a retainer and contract. Any unused portion of the retainer is credited to your project build. All drawings, renders and design sourcing belong to you. 
What does the design process look like?
The design phase relies heavily on our clients input, site measurements and final material selections. Material selections range from entry level/builder grade to luxury/high end. There are many variables we need final decisions on to give a final price. Just like a Kia is priced different than a Ferrari, same for kitchens! 

At The Remodel Studio,  work one-on-one with our clients through the entire design and scope creation process to ensure you get maximum value for your design investment. Someone from our design team will assist with all finish and color selections. This includes grout,  cabinet style, floor stain, hardware, tile and more to ensure a cohesive design plan. 

It is the most creative and fun part---besides the final reveal.
How long does the design and construction process take? 
Design  selections rely heavily on quick client communication and responsiveness.  How quickly clients make final decisions and communicate with the team is VERY important. Construction is generally a minimum of 8-12 weeks based on scope and material availability--trades will NOT be in your home daily and you will have use of your home throughout most of the project. 

During the remodel,  you will communicate with the entire team using interactive project management software that can be accessed through your phone or desktop. All site documents, updates and communication tools, are right at your fingertips. This ensures your project is managed well---even with slight delays or unexpected surprises that may happen in construction.
