More About Guts to Glory Tours:

These are educational, guided home tours which 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:

- 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
