"Should we remodel or rebuild?" That is the question we hear most often from homeowners in the luxury communities of Emerald Bay, Corona Del Mar, Balboa Island and Peninsula, Lido Isle, and Cameo Shores. We will help you to evaluate your project to determine if remodeling or rebuilding is the best approach. When remodeling a home, everyone wants to make their home special. However, remodeling a home can be overwhelming:

  • Where do you start?
  • Are there budget considerations?
  • What about the style, design, and plans?
  • Is the home located in the right neighborhood or location?
  • Are there homeowner association, community, city, or state restrictions that may impact the design or plans?
