The Conflict-Free Home Remodeling Process is a two-phase, six-step, proven way to logically plan for and receive payment for both Pre Construction and Construction services.

Historically, most of the time spent on a project has been in Phase Two, Construction, but today, more time is spent in Pre Construction, because of extensive government regulations and because of the vast range of homeowner choices in terms of designs and products. REMODology takes a closer look and spends more time in the Pre Construction phase of The Home Remodeling Process in order to ensure a more successful Construction phase. The results are excellent for the homeowner who is spending less money than would otherwise have been spent through unwise and unnecessary decisions made during the Construction phase of remodeling. In addition, the remodeler will get paid to plan the homeowner's project more efficiently.


The Conflict-Free Home Remodeling Process
Phase One, Pre Construction

  • Step 1 – Feasibility Study
    The Feasibility Study is the first of three steps in the Pre Construction portion of The Home Remodeling Process. The main goal for the Feasibility Study step of The Process is to determine whether or not the project is feasible for the homeowners and their budget. This study is done without hiring the architect. The remodeler’s goal is to understand the general idea of what the homeowners would like to accomplish and make sure the budget is within range.
  • Step 2 – Design Review
    Step 2 of Pre Construction is Design Review. The architect and interior designer are brought into The Process during this step. The purpose of this step, is to begin to refine the homeowner’s vision and scope of work. At the end of this step the homeowner will have a refined preliminary plan, elevations, and a more defined budget. During this step it is appropriate for the homeowner to add to or subtract from the scope of work. The goal at the end of this step, however, is for the homeowner to have a final decision on the scope of work.
  • Step 3 – Final Plans & Specifications
    Step Three of Pre Construction is the beginning of the home stretch of Phase One. Key information in this step will become the final documents from which the remodeler and his team of trades and suppliers will work. This step of The Process is about researching, compiling, refining and presenting all the information necessary to accomplish the homeowner’s dream.

Phase Two, Construction

  • Step 1 – Construction Preparation
    Now that a final agreement between the remodeler and homeowner has been reached, the actual construction work is ready to begin. Prior to the actual start of construction a few more items need to be to be addressed such as protecting assets or completed prior to starting project set up and demolition.
  • Step 2 – Construction
    At this point, the building permits are in hand, the notice of commencement approved and filed, the construction schedule reviewed, and final expectations outlined. The remodeler is now ready to begin the transformation of the homeowners' space into the agreed scope of work. During construction there are a few things that can take place to provide the homeowners with peace of mind and prepare for the successful completion of the project.
  • Step 3 – Post Construction
    The construction has come to an end. Everything you have planned in the Pre Construction steps of The Process has been delivered and now is reality. Before parting ways with the homeowner there are several items of information you will give them to keep for their future reference.



The Conflict-Free Home Remodeling Process is designed to be as detailed or as simple as the homeowners choose. Interior remodels such as kitchens and bathrooms will get through the Pre Construction phase much more quickly (some steps of The Process can be consolidated or eliminated for a quicker turn-around) than a room addition or a whole-house remodel.
