We’ve made it easy for you to take the first step.

Our “Project Snapshot” clears your path to a great home. You’ll learn all you need to know to make your way forward. You’ll gain insights that bring the possibilities into focus. You’ll have a roadmap and itinerary to lead your way.

If you’re just getting oriented we’ve got resources to keep you moving there too.

Study up, follow along, and stay tuned to the guidance we provide, the stories we have to tell, and the many projects we like to share. Got questions? We’ve tried to answer the ones we’re often asked.

Want to talk? We’re at 860-676-9238.

Because sometimes it is best just to pick up the phone and chat about where you’re headed and how we can help get you there.

Wolfworks Project Snapshot is your opportunity to take a solid first step toward creating a great home. Every project we do begins with this essential Feasibility and Orientation phase.

For a small investment of time and money you’ll get a fresh look at your home and how you live in it. If you are planning a new home, we’ll do the same. Before proceeding with our full design process we provide this essential information and guidance for a fixed fee of $800.

For new home project this includes:

  • A two hour meeting with you to learn about you and the project, develop a ProForma budget for that project together, take a tour of the design/build process and how we “see” what we’re planning to build, the nuts and bolts of collaboration, and describe how we “bake in” exceptional comfort, health, durability, and energy security. This meeting sets the stage for the work that follows.

For remodeling projects this includes

  • A one hour meeting at your home to get to know you, your home, and the changes you are hoping to make. We’ll share opportunities we observe that you may be missing. You’ll get a chance to see your home through our eyes.
  • A followup one hour meeting back at our office a week or so later to present your Project Snapshot

In both cases we provide:

  • A written project summary including opportunities, challenges, budget ranges, and a project roadmap
  • An orientation to how we employ design thinking in all our work with you
  • Individual written guides related to finance, design, planning, and expectations for the experience
  • A Design Agreement based on your goals to begin the full design of the project

Additional consultation in evaluating potential building sites, regulatory research, or other preparatory planning can be provided on an hourly basis.

During our meeting we’ll get to know you and how you’d like to live, listen to your ideas about how to accomplish that, and provide insights about opportunities you may not have recognized or considered. We’ll evaluate the opportunity to design and craft the kind of great spaces that add up to create a great home as well as the chance to improve comfort, health, durability, and lower energy use. You’ll be introduced to a project roadmap with a step by step process and timeline that clears the path to what we’ve determined you could accomplish. Along the way you’ll get to know us and how we practice design thinking.

Our goal is to discover what’s possible, the journey that will require, and to describe both clearly. The stage will be set for you to decide how and when to take the next steps toward creating a great home.

This document provides an overview of what we provide in this Feasibility & Orientation phase.

You can have a better life by creating a better home. 

Fit better. Feel better. Work better. Perform better. A home to thrive in. We know this because we’ve done it for folks like you, over and over for decades. We’d like to help you get to know how its done. Here are a few different ways for you to make that acquaintance.


We’d like to offer some insight into our approach to working together. We offer several downloads to get you oriented. Our Design Guide is portfolio content to digest or share offline. Our Expectations Guide explains how projects flow. And Jamie’s Guide provides a peek into his design thinking & insights.



What is Design/Build?
Wolfworks integrates design with construction to produce value. Rather than hire two separate companies to design, then construct a project you are taking advantage of the experience of both: a designer who incorporates a builders practical experience with building, budgets, schedules, and project management AND a builder who has been involved in the design of the project from the beginning. Not to mention seamless communication between both.



What are the advantages of this system?
Grounding design in the practical reality of build ability and budgets keeps your project on the rails. Projects without this integration too often come in over budget or require complex construction methods without an early opportunity to evaluate where things are headed. Projects that are designed by one party then bid out to others set the stage for scapegoating when expectations are not met.

Why shouldn't I hire an architect and builder separately?
Hiring an architect first, having them produce a complete plan with all the details, then seeking bids from qualified builders is the most common alternative to the integrated way we work. For those lucky enough to find both a good architect and builder this system can produce great projects. It requires two rounds of finding, interviewing, and selecting each service and it puts you in the role of assuring everybody is playing nice. It also presumes that the architect has a good handle on building costs and affordable methods and has designed to fit your budget. There is a risk that you may discover well into the process that what has been planned will not be affordable.

If I don’t get multiple bids how will I know I am getting the best value?

It’s alluring to be able to choose a builder based on cost. This allure loses its shine when you factor in the tradeoffs. Design intent is communicated thru documents, so every detail better be perfectly clear. Missed or unclear items can lead to additional costs. Disputes about this can create adversaries out of people who should be collaborating.

Who deals with zoning and building regulations?
Understanding regulatory requirements is a critically important part of any project. This is our responsibility as the designer and carries forward into the building phase as we coordinate required inspections and assure they meet approval. You may be required to supply property surveys if the design requires it. For some projects we may even need to apply for variances and appear to support the case for them.

How will I make product selections?
Once we have established a project scope within a comfortable budget framework we will guide you through the process of product selection. We don’t make this effort until we are clear about where the project is headed. This is the fun part, but it can feel daunting. We learn what you like then guide you toward options suited to the project and your taste. We recommend showrooms with experienced staff, as well as online resources and even material samples we may have here at our office.
