OUR GUIDING PRINCIPLES
Timely, Thorough and Detailed Execution
Our vast professional experience, knowledge and skills provides the most effective coordination between homeowners, builders, craftspeople, and design professionals.
We Never Take Shortcuts
We only use the best materials and proven techniques, and maintain a working standard that reflects our absolute commitment to the highest ethical standards and attention to detail.
Superior Results At An Affordable Price
On Time & On Budget
We’re experts at balancing the constraints of design desires and dollars. Keeping unexpected delays or design adjustments from derailing a project requires tight teamwork and trust between contractor and homeowner. We will provide constant communication and updates during the entire process - from design conception to project completion.
We Are Committed To Your Complete Satisfaction
To avoid any conflict of interest and provide effective collaboration and trust, all work by Artisan Residential Design is billed on an hourly basis. It is our belief that billing on a project percentage basis creates an improper incentive for the designer to increase their fees.
We firmly believe – and our contracts state –AT ANY POINT during the design process, the work can be altered or terminated. Your financial obligation is only for work completed to that point.
We offer this option to allow the exploration of design ideas without the commitment to proceed unless completely satisfied. Circumstances change, and projects evolve as pricing and design objectives become more closely aligned.
Designing Your Dream Home
Artisan Residential Design puts excellent design work first.
We create beautiful spaces with comfortable flow, opening up older homes in ways that bring contemporary living to the forefront. We create light filled rooms, and homes where daily living is eased and enhanced. A home remodeled by ARD blends with pre-existing conditions while bringing modern style comfortably into alignment. Attention to detail and work well done to last for decades, not years.
Managing the Project
Undergoing a home renovation can be stressful on couples and families, and we do recommend certain techniques to anticipate and reduce such stress. We will provide a copy of "ARTISAN RESIDENTIAL DESIGN's Home Owners Guide to Renovation and Remodeling" during our initial consultation for our build services.
Many of our customers do choose to remain in residence during the construction phase. While this greatly decreases the expense of many renovation projects, it can increase the complexity of several stages of a project, shift timelines and add to stress. Please feel free to discuss these aspects with your ARD team during the design planning and budgeting phase of your project. Considerations regarding young children, upcoming holidays, houseguests etc. should be considered carefully. We strive to ensure your comfort to the best of our ability throughout the project, start to finish.
