There are 3 Main steps – Design- Construction – Service. At Lukus Developments we like to focus on the very first step.
he more information we have on selections and the desired look and finishing of your home at this phase the faster your home can be built. This also allows us to procure any rare finishes that you require that potentially may cost the completion time of your home.
Every design at Lukus Developments is based on YOU -- who you are, what you love, and how you live. We start every project with a clean slate; your new build or remodel is a reflection of you, a vision of what you love, not a “cookie-cutter” design for someone else.
We interview you in depth, carefully measure your space, take comprehensive photographs and create unique designs that are personally yours while staying true to the highest design standards and guidelines to ensure the best functionality of your designs. Then, Lukus Developments uses the latest technology to help you visualize your designs and refine them to get you exactly what you love.
Once your design is complete, the selection process begins. The challenge is to choose products that maintain a sense of consistency with the design, quality and your individualized style while keeping your budget in view.
At Lukus Developments, you can also take advantage of our interior design expertise that will help you with every decision of correlated products and finishes. Our beautiful, up-to-date showroom has most product selection choices on display and we also partner with other showrooms in town to allow you to view all of the other products not seen in our showroom.
Our team of design professionals is there for you every step of the way to help you make the right decisions. As part of this stage of the project, all of the tradesmen personally visit the jobsite and prepare honest bids for the necessary trades work based on your home and your design; we do not “blind-bid” or use “ballpark” estimates. There are no surprises.
Every remodel project will include a variety of products, usually available at several price-points, which will enhance and complete your design. At Lukus Developments, our job is to show you the many choices that are available for your project, and then help you to adjust the design and product selections if necessary to maintain your budget. You have the freedom to explore the possibilities and choose what you love most. It is your project, not ours, and you will be fully involved in the process at every step along the way.
Ordering & Scheduling
After all the choices have been made and the contract is signed, Lukus Developments meticulously orders your products and builds a production schedule for your project and determines a start-date. This schedule is sent to you along with our team; and you’re “on the board.” We keep in contact with you as we near the start date.
Lukus Developments uses only our team of honest, diligent and respectful employees and sub-contractors, hand-selected for their teamwork, technical skills and artisan craftsmanship. Most of these people have been working with Lukus for many years; we know them very well, and they know well our processes and high performance standards -- both professional and personal. They will follow the Schedule and are dedicated to embodying your “perfect” design with perfect installation. Our experienced superintendent will be with you and your project every step of the way, holding your hand, answering your questions and delighting with you as your vision is brought to life. Everyone on our production team is well aware of the stress that any home remodeling project can cause, and all work to minimize it. Along the way, you will feel their care; and in the end, you will know the joy resulting from all of their effort on your behalf.
