The choice between renovating an existing building or simply starting the project from scratch depends on many different variables. The company’s project manager will assess your house situation, take your desired design concept into consideration, and offer a beautiful resolution.
This story mainly introduces one of the company’s major renovation projects. Through an existing client’s referral, new clients wanted to change the look of their house, since they have lived there for decades.
With new design trends and energy efficiency concepts, they couldn’t decide whether to do a major renovation or a new build. Kai Ridge Hawaii’s project manager spent months to find out their needs and the design concept they liked. Taking into consideration the permitting time, restrictions from new zoning requirements, and the length of the project, the client decided to do a major renovation, since the turnaround time would be greatly enhanced by using the existing structure. Due to magnitude of the renovation, Kai Ridge Hawaii offered a design concept, and worked with architect to refine the detail of the plans.
Kai Ridge Hawaii’s recommended design has always been about balancing design trends with functionalism from a builder’s perspective. With a decade of building experience, the company’s project manager advised the clients to change the layout of the existing house, especially the living and kitchen area.
Maximizing both areas significantly enhanced the overall look of the house. Kai Ridge Hawaii designed the living room with an open window area and contemporary interior finish, which allows the living room to incorporate the best view and a modern living lifestyle. The company also designed kitchen area with open space — it magnifies the area of the existing house. For the exterior, with Kai Ridge Hawaii’s help, the clients decided to have a combination of James Hardie board, metal siding and stucco as exterior finishing. It will give you a completely new facelift for your existing house.
Because of all the detailed work, Kai Ridge Hawaii’s clients are extremely happy with the final product, from the design, getting the permit approved and throughout the renovation phases, and eventually turnkey in to them. They feel so lucky with such a short turnaround time, while their friends are still in the process of getting the building permit. The entire process is streamlined, efficient and delivered to homeowners faster with fewer change orders. They are so grateful for Kai Ridge Hawaii’s professional advices and recommendations.
