More About Our Guts to Glory Tours:

This is an educational, guided home tour to showcase the “guts” of a home, and the process that will ultimately produce the “glory” of a fully remodeled home - on time and on budget. 

Our goal is to provide you with the educational tools you need to get started on a successful and minimally stressful remodel, and make your remodeling project a rewarding and positive experience.  Learning points will include:

  • Understand our clients’ motivations and goals

  • Demystify the remodeling process and illustrate key building-block decision points

  • Review how these decisions affect comfort, energy efficiency, and budget

  • Explore design strategies and interior finishes

  • Review best practices for delivering the project on time and budget

  • Learn about the Forward Design Build process and the key meetings essential for success
