We feel you. You love your home, but now it’s time for it to adapt to your changing family, your updated tastes, and your evolving lifestyle. Your wish list is long and you’re feeling hopeful. This is where we come in. We take the hopes and dreams you have for your home and turn them into reality. But we’re not just focused on the end result. We will also make sure to create a home renovation journey that is smooth, transparent, and enjoyable for you.
Your renovation journey begins when we meet you for a walk-through consultation at your home. During this visit, you are able to learn more about us and our process, and we are able to learn more about your dreams and goals for your home renovation. Together we establish a wish-list, or scope, for your home renovation project that will guide the architectural design phase.
After defining the scope of your home renovation, we work closely with an architect to ensure accurate and thorough architectural plans are designed. We are then able to create a comprehensive budget and schedule for your home renovation, provide value-engineering opportunities and cost-saving alternatives, and ensure potential constructability issues are mitigated before beginning construction.
This is when things get real! During this phase you’re able to see your dream come alive as your new home truly takes shape. In the field, our construction managers mobilize, coordinate, and supervise our qualified team of vendors and subcontractors to guide your home renovation toward timely completion. Our project managers provide organized and accurate budget monitoring, selection coordination, and sub agreement management. During construction, you’re able to log in to our client portal at any time to see your home’s budget, schedule, selections, and progress photos.
Congratulations! This is when we get to step back and enjoy the fruits of our collective labor. Your new and improved home is ready for you and your family to move in and make memories together for years to come. Following a third-party final inspection and a walk-thru with our team you will move-in to your new home. Any punch list items will be handled efficiently and effectively by your construction manager and project manager.

15 years after we built this French Manor, a new family purchased it and asked us to turn it into their dream home.
“All of the initial anxiety we had going into our renovation went away when we started working with Chris and Michael Sims. They worked closely with our architect and designer, and as soon as an issue arose they found a quick and effective solution. They really went above and beyond.”
