Although the holidays are generally not a good time to start a major building or remodeling project, it can be a good time to start the planning process.

Homeworks Construction CEO Jim Byxbee said the atmosphere of optimism that prevails during the holiday season is conducive to making plans for new projects. “We are usually hopeful and looking forward to making improvements in our quality of life as we approach the new year,” Byxbee said. “Although people are busy shopping and entertaining, they are often ready to take a break to think about upgrading a kitchen or bath, doing an addition, or even building a new custom home. It’s never too early to start planning, because there are literally hundreds of choices and decisions that need to be made.”

Byxbee suggests that anyone planning to build or remodel any time during 2013 contact the Homeworks office and make an appointment to visit the showroom or have a project coordinator come out to their home or building site. There is no obligation for initial meetings or even a preliminary estimate and scope of work.


“Our showroom is stocked with samples of cabinets, counter and flooring materials, and more. A project coordinator will meet with them at the showroom, where they can also review photos of our completed projects. Since we’ve built or remodeled over 1,000 homes in Hawaii, chances are they will see something similar to what they have in mind.

“Because Homeworks is a ‘design/build’ firm, all our services are literally ‘under one roof,’ from planning and permits to construction and final finishes.”

Byxbee answers building and remodeling questions during the Homeworks Build New Or ReDo radio show Saturdays from 9 to 10 a.m. on KHVH AM830 (call 521-8383).
