Our Process

Free Design Consultation

We request an appointment to meet in the convenience of your home.  Expect the kitchen remodel consultation to take anywhere from 1-1/2 hours, depending on how many questions you have.  Our kitchen designer will ask questions about what you are trying to accomplish.  We will share some feedback and together come up with a rough design plan and then give you verbal budget numbers based on that information.  If the budget numbers align with what you want to invest in the project, your designer will take measurements and discuss styles, colors, etc so he or she can prepare a written estimate and a rendering for you to review on a separate date at our design center (typically within 10 working days of your initial appointment).

Proposal Review

You will meet with your designer at our Escondido Showroom to review the preliminary renderings and scope of work.  Pricing reflecting the rendering and scope of work will be provided.  We will review preliminary project timeline and make any necessary adjustments to the scope of work and/or renderings.  Provided you love our pricing and designs, we finalize contracts.

Prepare for Project to Begin

Internal construction drawings will be prepared.  We will coordinate getting permits pulled, if necessary.  You will select your product with the assistance of  product selection coordinator.  Upon receipt of all products, we will schedule an on-site meeting with the project manager to set your final schedule and to prepare you for the start of your project.

Review from Edward C, San Diego (Yelp)


The present review focus on the implementation of the project as I already described our bid process with CHI.
Our project lasted 3.5 months and involved major structural kitchen remodeling with renovation of our entire flooring in our first floor. Although we had upfront all architectural, designer and engineer plans, it was a plus to work with a professional company that reviewed every single detail before, during and after project completion.
Office: Yvonne and Kelley, thoroughly constructed 3D visual plans (20/20 CAD) and reviewed scales of our project. Indeed, they picked up details that were overlooked in our original plans that could have affected ultimate look of our remodeling project. Dan, the manager, well rounded and organized, provided all the required legal documents timely as agreed prior to start the construction according to law.  Nicole was timely providing me the pdf documents of every single payment and keep me updated with balance and logistics of the project.
Project manager: Mr. Larry Chase, deserves a special mention, he is well-manner and spoken, impeccable listener and detail oriented. Trust him. He will make sure every sub-contractor delivers impeccable work as detailed in contract and plans. More importantly, if something unexpected happens, he will immediately take care of the matter and fix it for you. For example, resolving an unexpected plumbing issue. I’d like to highlight his work integrity, reflected in two things: stayed within budget and even credited money when final labor was not performed as originally planned. I used this credit to complete some additional home work.
A special note is the honesty of every worker involved, this is paramount whenever you have ‘strangers’ working closely with your most treasure asset: your family.
After going through this experience my recommendations to the average educated costumer are the following: first, do your homework and put in writing as detailed as possible your scope of work. Second, plan unexpected 15% for both your budget and any provided agreed timeline with your constructor. I found this last part very important, because like when having a major surgery, if something unexpected arise during the surgery, you don’t want your surgeon to rush but rather to do it well and only once. I believe that the same concept applies to construction. Third, if you are a formal, detailed-oriented person and like quality, consider strongly CHI, they will exceed your expectations for their work integrity, workmanship and well-planned process. Certainly, they are a cost effective-option for the outstanding quality of work they deliver. I recommend CHI highly.
