Process & Designers

You will be informed and in charge every step of the way. No surprises. No hidden costs. No delays. Just delight.

Collaborative Design

Getting to you know is our priority. We begin by asking a lot of questions about your goals, preferences, tastes, and lifestyle. 

Next, we’ll work with you to find a design that fits you both aesthetically and functionally. No detail is too small for consideration, and our work together is not finished until we both agree the final design is exactly what you hoped. 

Hassle Free Installation

Once construction begins, we aim to disrupt your routine as little as possible.

Our carefully vetted crew maintains a tight, predetermined schedule, are respectful of you and your property, and always clean up.

We keep the lines of communication open so you’ll know exactly what to expect each day until your project is complete.

How We Work

You should be as happy with your home renovation process as you are with the end result, here’s how we’ll make that happen. 

 step one
Complimentary Design Consultation

First we’ll visit your home to listen and explore your ideas and goals for your home’s re-design.From there, we can estimate a range of possible design and remodeling solutions that size up the possible scope and expense.

 step two
Planning Your Space

Once retained, we’ll complete your client-focused design survey. We’ll talk through several floorplans and layouts and discuss how you will use the space. We’ll help you weigh the benefits of each option to create your perfect design.

 step three
Choose Your New Look

Here’s where you’ll decide on the finishes for your new design. We’re very transparent, so we’ll review several expertly curated options and their related costs. You’ll select your cabinetry, finishes, and materials for your new design. With our input and options, we put you in command to make informed decisions.

 step four
Precision Pricing and Agreement

We’ll review the final plans with you, including our transparent precision pricing. We go through the final proposal with a fine-tooth comb so that there are no surprises. When you’re satisfied, we’ll sign a contract and get to work.

 step five
Get Your Accurate Schedule

We’ll schedule your installation based on a agreed-upon start date. Next, we finalize any mechanical and electrical drawings and give you a detailed construction schedule. We start and finish on time and on your schedule.

 step six
Discover Your New Home

We want you to be completely satisfied with your new design project. We’ll take you on a final walk through, answer any remaining questions and create your punch list. We won’t leave until you’re satisfied. That’s the cornerstone of our process and collaboration.

Transitional Kitchen Redesign

“Diana did an amazing job working with us to plan our dream kitchen. She listened carefully to our preferences and incorporated those into several options at different price tiers since we sure on how major a project we wanted to take on. There was zero pressure to “go big” and she let us lead without letting her own aesthetic dominate too much.

We couldn’t have been happier with how the project ended up. And the Drury crew couldn’t have been more professional on skilled at their installations craft. They finished the day they said they would at the start, and there was no period of zero happening that we hear about from so many of our friends on various projects. We would recommend Diana and Drury to anyone we know in a heartbeat! ”
