No two projects are alike, just like no two clients are alike. With a background in residential construction and a graduate degree in real estate and construction management, Elizabeth methodically designs each space, taking into account structural components, functional capabilities and overall design style. Starting with  pictures and ideas for your dream space is a must! Share your Houzz design book or Pinterest board with Elizabeth, and get ready to start designing! Elizabeth has the ability to help clients visualize their new space, with computer aided 3D conceptual drawings. This innovative approach using computer created designs, similar to HGTV shows, allows for a more effective use of time when revising and reconfiguring spaces, as well as giving homeowners the opportunity to see their new space come to life! After choosing a contractor, Elizabeth can attending jobsite meetings, communicate design details and and specifications directly with the vendors and trade contractors, and overall be a Owners Representative for homeowners. 



  • Designing to a Budget. By starting with a comfortable investment price, we can work together to make educated decisions on where to spend your investment. Is a Viking range a priority in your new kitchen?  By keeping a budget in mind, we can choose where to cut costs by selecting a less expensive but equally as gorgeous backsplash. 

  • Homework. The success of a project, is based on how many decisions were made prior to breaking ground. Change Orders can add unexpected and unnecessary costs to a project. Although sometimes Change Orders are unavoidable due to unforeseen circumstances, by selecting materials, purchasing fixtures, and having a detailed plan before construction starts, we can avoid long lead times and back orders (and in turn, your contractor can provide a stress free project that comes in on time and on budget).

  • Make it Make Sense. My goal when designing any space, is to make it make sense. Every design decision, design feature and design aesthetic, has a thought and reason behind it. From providing extra pantry space for a growing family, to maintaining adequate traffic flow areas by increasing square footage for entertaining, my goal is to meet clients needs and desires, while creating a space that is functional, as well as beautiful. 

  • "Need to Know" Numbers. In addition to knowing your budget, there are numbers you should know before making the decision to remodel. How long do you see yourself living in the home? What is your home worth, and how will this investment effect the homes value, based on the neighborhood?
