Given the number of parties involved, even the smallest of remodeling projects can be a complicated affair. Besides the homeowner, there’s the architect and interior designer, general and specialty contractors, along with the countless vendors who supply the raw materials and home finishing products. Throughout the life of the project they must all work together to deliver a finished space that meets the homeowner’s expectations, and they must do it all while staying on schedule and budget.

Some Fun Facts
From the Blog
The design build model’s greatest strength is the single-source responsibility and accountability it offers to homeowners. But that single source is not one person, it’s the team that has been carefully put together to ensure a smooth and successful project. That’s why it’s imperative that contractors and designers work in partnership for the mutual benefit of everyone involved, including the homeowner. Contractors more often than not now find themselves in the position of “interviewing” and choosing designers, which represents a major role reversal in the industry.
In the custom home industry we have two ways to build a home: the traditional bid and build model, or the design build approach. As design build firms, we have two ways as well: in-house and outsourced design. In-house design means the designer is actually on the firm’s staff, while outsourced design means a designer or architect works for another firm, or for themselves. Here, we’re going to talk exclusively about in-house design.
Wyatt Knight built our wood play set, not from a kit, but by a design he and our family worked on. Grandparents had donated money to buy the plastic slides, steps, ropes, etc, but we wanted to design a set with everything our three boys wanted. As you can see in the photos, it includes two towers connected by a raised bridge. There are five ways to climb up, including a rope ladder and a 14 ft rock-step climbing wall on the right. There are 6 ways to get down from the top level, including a fireman’s pole, rope and ladders. The main tower includes an enclosed play house with two doors at ground level, a middle level that accesses the bars, the plank ramp, the slide and rock steps. The top is like a fort with raised posts. The bench swing is nice for adults to sit and watch the young ones play. Our boys spend many a night sleeping up there under the stars. This set is over 10 years old and still like new. We’re just replacing the ropes now and have stained it three times. Wyatt built this in four days. It is solid and anchored in cement, so it’s safe from tipping. The neighborhood kids think it’s a park and have many times asked if they could play or get tickets to come play. We love it and some day look forward to it being a selling point of our home to a younger family.
Wyatt helped us complete the design for our project and guided us through the renovation of our 3rd floor attic space into our son’s bedroom. He helped us understand the best way to both maximize space and energy efficiency while also meeting our project needs. Wyatt always listened to our questions and took time to give us well thought-out answers. We appreciated how hard he worked to help us complete the project within our timelines. Wyatt helped us to finish our project within budget with high quality materials and expertise of what would work for our needs.ank you!”
Wyatt was very knowledgeable, payed attention to detail, asked questions for clarification if something was unclear, and took the time to sit down and go over each aspect of the design with Sarah and I. We provided him with our ideas, a budget, and a timeline and he was able to meet and even exceed our needs/expectations on each. End result – Awesome Kitchen!!
