How It Works
It all begins with a Discovery Call! We connect through a Zoom call to learn more about your project, and we talk through how Home by Hattan can help you. If we decide we are a good fit, we schedule your Initial Design Consultation (or you may choose Designer for a Day or just a stand-alone Consultation should you decide you don't want concierge full service). This Initial Consultation kicks off your project, as we work through the phases below.
Once you're a Home by Hattan Client, here's how we create your beautiful home, working through these 3 Phases:
I. Explore & Establish: Discovery Phase
During our initial discovery phase, we take the time to connect with you and your vision, exploring the possibilities for your project, and how you want to live in your home. We establish the scope, the probable costs, the feasibility, the design goals and aesthetics, and the vision for your project, including an initial estimate for any construction required. This phase culminates with the deliverable of your Custom Project Overview Guide, which outlines your project and includes an invitation to continue your project with Home by Hattan through completion.
II. Plan & Purchase: Design Phase
The design happens here. Our studio will work to create design concepts and space plans for each area of your project, meeting with you to present selections for materials, finishes, and furnishings, which may include flooring, tile, lighting, plumbing fixtures, paint colors, furniture, and decor. With an approved final design, we’ll prepare any drawings or documentation needed for construction, begin applying for permits and scheduling trade workers, and purchase all of the materials and selections on your behalf.
III. Implement & Manage: Execution Phase
The construction and installation happen here, and we're partners by your side every step of the way, communicating with you weekly with all updates and progress. During construction, we manage all the details and serve as your advocate to ensure the highest quality of standards and adherence to the design plan and to codes, overseeing the demolition, supplies, construction, trades, installation, and final inspections. We handle the logistics to receive and install materials, furnishings and decor, and finish each project with a Sip and See reveal party to share your beautiful new home with family and friends!
Our beloved client, Michelle, had this to say about a recent renovation project that our HbyH Design Team guided her through:
"Karen did an excellent job helping me make decisions big and small during my recent home renovations! While I had definite ideas about some things, like colors I wanted to use, I have no expertise in other aspects of design, such as floor plans, trim work, or cabinetry, to name a few. Karen knew what to do and how to choose my selections so that I feel my home truly reflects my taste and suits the way our family lives in our home."
And Michelle had this to say about Mark, who completed a few pieces of her renovation:
"Mark is knowledgeable, professional, and very easy to work with! He is friendly, capable, and reasonably priced. I recommend Mark!"
Take a look at her highly personalized, beautiful, light-filled renovation -- inspired by her favorite color, teal! (check out the teal fireplace!) We even incorporated several family heirlooms into her design. Michelle is now happily surrounded by things she loves, and has the space to entertain and host her small group meetings and her family events.

Suzanne, another dear client, says this about a renovation Karen helped her with a few years ago ... and now we just signed with Suzanne to undertake Phase 3 of her renovation, with Mark and the Home by Hattan Build Team at the reins!
"When you wait a long time to undertake a major renovation project you want to be sure to get it right! I initially hired Karen to help me choose paint colors for my kitchen and den remodel, but that grew into having her help me entirely 'create a space'- from designing the layout to choosing details such as trim, cabinets, granite, and tile. Karen was able to put focus, clarity, and personality to my ideas. She made me feel like my home could reflect my personal style, yet also work for my family. Both my husband and I valued Karen’s availability, trustworthiness, ability to listen, patience, and thoughtful, yet honest responses to our questions. Hiring Karen took a lot of indecision and stress out of going through our renovation, and in the end, she helped us create a look that was unique to us and hasn’t been duplicated!"

Thank you, Suzanne and Michelle, and all of our happy Home by Hattan Clients! It is our privilege and our joy to help you live beautifully at home!
