How We Work

01.

We begin by listening

Our first step is to discuss your ideas for transforming your home. Why are you embarking on this project? What’s on the top of your wish list? How do you use your current space? What do you most want to change—or keep? 

02.

We capture your ideas and then push you a bit beyond your comfort zone

Our initial drawings are the critical first step in transforming your space. This is where we marry your vision with our creativity and knowledge about what’s most exciting in home design. 

03.

We plan and specify every aspect of your project

In a Lee Kimball agreement all expectations, deliverables, expenses, timetables, and responsibilities are clearly spelled out from start to finish. This is the very essence of our design/build approach.

04.

We help you choose all the details–right down to the last drawer pull

It may seem obsessive, but having everything ordered and ready to go is key to maintaining your schedule and controlling costs. We suggest fixtures and details so you have the fun of choosing without all the time-consuming research. It’s also an essential part of creating a beautiful and exciting space because details make a very big statement.

05.

We give you a schedule–and stick to it

Before work begins, you’ll know exactly what is going to happen week by week and day by day. We schedule the best plumbers, electricians, and other trade contractors in advance so there are no gaps in the schedule.

06.

We report in every week

We want you to stay involved throughout your project so we never leave communication to chance. We hold weekly onsite meetings to review our progress and answer any questions you may have. 

07.

We even bring order to disruption

We do everything we can to keep our construction area from bleeding into your living space. We protect your floors, partition off our workspace and sweep up every night before we go home. 

08.

We meet our deadline

Our schedule is not a wish list. It’s a promise. Because everything has been carefully planned in advance, you’ll know exactly when you can begin using your new space.

09.

Finally, we celebrate together

The end of job party is a favorite Lee Kimball tradition. After all the hard work, it’s an opportunity to say thank you to our clients and recognize every member of our team.
