Our Design Process
Design & Planning Phase
Building with Forest Glen Construction begins with a complimentary design consultation, allowing us to get to know you, understand the needs of your family, and learn why you are considering taking on a remodeling project. We will discuss your ideas for the remodel and provide suggestions based on your home, the available space, and your projected budget.
Our in-house architect will take field measurements of the job and draw the plans. As soon as they are complete, we send them to you for your assessment. We will schedule a meeting to review them together and discuss various materials for project. Our design staff will assist with selections by providing samples of different products and accompanying you to our local vendor showrooms.
Once the final plans gain your approval, we submit them to the village for permit. The permit process generally takes between four and six weeks. When we receive the permit, our project manager will contact you to discuss the particulars of your job, determine construction access, and address any concerns you might have regarding construction.
The timeframe of the construction phase depends entirely on the scope of the project. It can range from six weeks for a small powder room remodel, to four months for a two-story room addition and kitchen remodel. Forest Glen strives to complete each project on time and within budget, but delays can be inevitable due to structural issues, weather, and changes in selections, among others.
Forest Glen Construction works with customers as transparently as possible, because we believe good communication is as important as quality workmanship.
Upon completing each project, Forest Glen Construction will leave your newly remodeled home broom clean and ready for your family to use the space. When you choose Forest Glen, we build for you and a relationship with you. We love to stay connected with our customers and hope you will always consider us for future projects and repairs.
