At WINN Design + Build we strive to make the building process as streamlined as possible

Our process can be broken down into nine simple steps:


Initial Meeting

Every project begins with a member of our team meeting you at your home. This is a time to get acquainted and learn about each other. We will ask that you have a copy of your plan as well as your wish list and a general idea of the budget at this meeting. During this meeting, we will:  Listen to your needs and wants to develop a reasonable project scope and budget, observe the condition of your home and evaluate what likely will and will not work in the existing space, develop a relationship and match your project goals with WINN Design + Build expertise, schedule a time to complete a Planning Agreement and meet with a Project Designer

Planning Phase


Field Survey

This is the first step in the Planning Phase. Our designers will document the area(s) to be renovated with measurements and photographs.


Schematic Design

This is where the fun begins! After completion of our renovation questionnaires and conducting a working session with your Project Designer, our team will develop a design solution based on your goals, desires, budget and zoning constraints.


Planning Review

The result of the Planning Phase is an architectural outline of exactly what you want to build. We will also review a preliminary cost estimate and schedule forecast. You are now armed with ideas and budgeting which will allow you to “think about it” and make an informed decision.

Design Phase



During this stage, our design staff will refine your conceptual plan and develop a detailed set of architectural blueprints for construction. Our production team will engage our trade partners to determine exact trade pricing and timeline. Lastly, our interior design staff will work closely with you to assist in the selection of materials and finishes to pull the project together.


construction documents

Once all decisions have been made and designs are complete, we will produce your project’s final construction documents. Floorplans, finishes, fixtures and all other details will be included in the documents.

Construction Phase


construction preparation

Prior to the start of construction, we will secure all necessary permits, surveys and engineering documents. We will also prepare the construction schedule that will be used throughout the construction process. A pre-construction meeting will be conducted with you and our design and construction team leaders to review the day-to-day plan for construction.



Finally, the sticks and bricks phase! The Lead Carpenter will keep your home as secure, neat, and dust-free as possible. He or she will be on site daily to oversee the entire project. We’ll adhere to the project schedule and conduct weekly meetings with you to keep the lines of communication open.
