How We Work

OUR PROVEN PROCESS

At MHM LIVING, we believe that every client deserves a unique and tailored experience. We start by getting to know you and your lifestyle, so we can understand your specific needs and desires. Our team of skilled professionals will then guide you through the entire process, helping you select the best materials to enhance and expand your home. Whether you’re looking for a luxurious master suite, kitchen or complete overhaul, we’ll transform your space with thoughtfulness and beauty, creating a work of art that perfectly reflects your vision.

Step 1

DISCOVERY PHASE

In the discovery phase of your project, we’ll start by scheduling an initial meeting where we’ll talk about your ideas and provide a recommended approach. This is your opportunity to share your vision and ask any questions you may have. To help us better understand what you’re trying to achieve, we recommend preparing ahead of time by gathering photos from websites and magazines, or by having any handwritten notes and drawings available. By starting the discovery phase with a clear idea of your goals, we can work together more efficiently to create a design that truly reflects your vision.

Step 2

DESIGN PHASE

During the design phase of each design build project, the need for interior designs and/or architectural drawings will be determined based on the project’s scope and complexity.

Overall, the design phase is a critical stage in the design build process, as it sets the foundation for the entire project. By carefully developing a clear and detailed plan, and ensuring that all necessary permits and approvals are in place, the team can move forward with confidence and a clear understanding of the project’s goals and requirements.

Step 3

MATERIAL SELECTION

Selecting the appropriate materials is crucial to the success of any project, as it can have a significant impact on the final result. With our extensive experience, we’re able to provide you with a vast array of high-quality materials that are suitable for a wide range of applications. Whether you’re looking for something durable, stylish, or both, we’ve got you covered. Our goal is to help you find the perfect materials that will not only meet your needs but also enhance the overall look and feel of your project.

Step 4

PROJECT SCOPE

After we’ve completed the design and material selections, we’ll create a final proposal that includes the project timeline and scope of work. This is one of the most important steps in the process because it ensures that everyone involved has a clear understanding of what needs to be done and when. By outlining the project timeline, we can set realistic expectations for completion and keep the project on track. Additionally, by clearly defining the scope of work, we can ensure that all aspects of the project are accounted for and that there are no surprises along the way. Our goal is to provide you with a comprehensive proposal that covers all the details of the project, so you can feel confident that it will be completed on time, within budget, and to your satisfaction.

EXECUTION

When it comes to executing a design build project, we’re thrilled to see our clients’ vision come to life. We start this stage by finalizing the project timeline with our clients and scheduling material deliveries and labor sequencing. Custom orders are also placed at this stage to ensure that everything is ready to go.

We make sure that our clients are kept in the loop every step of the way by providing them with access to their remodeling project in real time through our client portal. This includes a project calendar that outlines the timing of each stage of the remodeling process, as well as daily image uploads and work summaries. This allows our clients to monitor progress and ask questions without having to be on site.

Throughout the project, our team maintains a clean and safe work environment and communicates regularly with our clients through various channels, including in-person meetings, phone calls, and the client portal. Our goal is to ensure that our clients feel comfortable and informed at all times.

We take pride in our work and strive to make every project a positive experience for our clients. We’re thrilled to welcome you to the MHM LIVING family and look forward to creating something beautiful together.

Bathroom Remodeling
Luxury Kitchen Remodeling

What can I say about MHM Living: their expertly handled remodel of my kitchen and bathroom won awards and graced magazines! Their execution is art and professionalism at its utmost. I never had to worry about a single detail. I visited the construction site when I could, mostly because I was excited to see the progress, but regular photo updates and trustworthy work ensured that I didn't have to worry that anything was being mishandled. They are true to their word and have open conversations about changes in the project. For instance, the project started one day later than the promised date and finished 3 days later than the finish date. 🙀🙀🙀🙀🙀 I'll take a change in plan like that any day! They would notify me of adjustments they wanted to make to the build plans, and they were ALWAYS improvements. MHM thinks carefully through the details and will under promise and WAY over deliver. My kudos to Botond, who thoroughly studies and understands the project plans before the first meeting. He was very transparent with me and explained his understanding of the scope of the project from an engineer's mindset, which I appreciated deeply. Warren, who managed our project, is the epitome of hard work, trust, and having your best interests in mind. He made it an extremely enjoyable experience and ultimately created the most beautiful areas in my home. I have to add my thanks to Ross and Santos, who contributed so much to this project. MHM will always have my utmost gratitude and highest recommendation. They made the process of renovation and construction enjoyable, an experience unique to their company.

I highly recommend Botond Lazlo and the team at MHM LIving Design. We did an extensive remodel of multiple bathrooms last summer. The team worked with us on exactly the design we wanted for each bathroom, and then worked with us to find all the right fittings and accessories. It was so extensive, we moved out for most of the summer! Along the way, there were some surprises and some changes. Botond and the team took these in stride and minimized the impact to the entire project. They kept the house clean and undamaged despite heavy work for three months. We are delighted with the outcome! We've recommended them to close friends, and not only would we work with MHM again...I am not sure I would trust our house to anyone else.

We worked with MHM to complete a major remodel of our home including complete renovations to our kitchen, living and dining rooms, and a ground floor bathroom. We were astounded with the final product as it surpassed all our possible expectations. They took a compartmentalized design and created an open, seamless floor plan with incredible functionality. The end product is stunningly beautiful. An equally impressive aspect to MHM is their process. Bontond Lazlo and Jin Crimmins visited with us during the design phase and truly sought to understand how we live, how we utilize the space, and what we thought the space could be. From this they developed options we could never have anticipated. They incorporated what we knew we wanted and educated us on elements we would never have considered and did not even realize were possible. Their attention to detail and insistence on craftsmanship is unparalleled. They communicated every aspect of the project in advance and met the timeline despite some last-minute additions to the project we requested. Their construction process is without comparison. They provided daily project updates and pictures throughout the project and kept us engaged and informed at every milestone. MHM has locked in the full process in a way that eliminated any uncertainty or stress. It was a true pleasure to work with Bontond and Jin and the entire MHM crew. We feel like we are living in an entirely new home.
