STEP ONE
MEET & GREET

MEET & GREET

Visit the Ervi office to meet the team and review your project. Be up front about your budget and timeline and we’ll discuss the best route for you – we may also need to schedule a site visit. We’ll then send a design proposal for the time and work to design the space of your dreams. When ready, sign and send it back with the

STEP TWO
LET’S DESIGN

.

Your Ervi designer will use their design expertise to translate your vision into the drawings, plans, and elevations needed to convey the coming transformation of your space. We’ll select every finish, fabric, material, and surface throughout the project, and shop for appliances with you, if needed. 4-8 weeks

STEP THREE
THE DETAILS

.

We detail every aspect of your plans, specifying details such as tile layout, grout spacing, and cabinet hardware, allowing our construction team to compile an accurate bid for your project.

STEP FOUR
BID THE BUILD

.

Your designer passes the detailed plans for your project to our construction team where they compile a thorough and accurate bid, including work from subcontractors we know and trust for their quality and service. After the bid presentation, if tweaks are needed to reach goals and budget, they can be discussed and adjusted.

STEP FIVE
CONSTRUCTION

.

The benefit to the design-build method is that your designer is closely involved in the build so that the final space is everything you dreamed up in Week 1. Another undeniable plus is a more efficient build out phase; because details are hashed out before building starts, there are far fewer slowdowns due to product lead times and fabrication delays.
