9 Easy Steps Towards Your Dream Home

1. Initial phone call

Fill out our form or give us a call to schedule a phone consultation. Before this initial call, please send us a few photos of your existing space so we can see what you see. At this stage, we’ll talk about your ideas, give you a price estimate, and schedule the pre-construction meeting.

3. Design phase

We design your project together, starting from a hand sketch. If your project requires more detailed planning, we develop a full 3D design complete with floor plans and elevations, three-dimensional drawings, and up to two revisions. The designs are yours to keep.

Once the designs are finalized, we require a 40% deposit. This way we can have 50% of the project’s cost collected before construction begins.

Craftsmanship Is Our Specialty. Here’s What Our Customers Say...


Dan and his team did an amazing job transforming our Master Bath during this past year.

He ran with our ideas to change a walk in closet and a small bathroom into a dedicated Master Bath Suite. He was extremely responsive and worked with us at all steps in the process, considering we had to also deal with the pandemic during the remodel.

His sub contractors were amazing and the services that he delivered were top notch. We love our new bathroom and it truly was a great experience working with him.

We highly recommend him to do any remodeling job you might have.



Dan went above and beyond our expectations with our closet remodel.

He made sure that the project was completed to our absolute satisfaction and we would highly recommend him!!



I’ve used Dan for a few projects.
He is a true craftsman who strives for perfection. If you want your job done right, from cabinets to stairs and even barn doors.

He’s the guy you want on your job. Thanks again Dan at Crossgrain Carpentry. I will collaborate with you some more in the future.
