Our Basement Planning Process

Specialist Driven Solutions

Whether you are planning your dream kitchen, sprucing up the bathroom, or capturing much needed space in the basement, our remodeling specialists are ready to help you create the home you will love. For busy, discerning homeowners our simplified design process is a great way to collaborate with a team of caring, committed professionals. Bluestem is dedicated to creating remodeling solutions to suit your needs and reflect your style. You will get an experience that is enjoyable and effective, and you will be in control at every step with our world-class online personal client portal. Here are the steps you can expect:

Launch & Explore


You will meet with one of our team specialists for an initial in-home consultation. At that meeting and following up, we hear your dreams for your home, understand your needs, and assess the current conditions of the area to be remodeled.
Your specialist will suggest preliminary design ideas and discuss an initial budget.

We strive to provide you with good information so that you can make the best decisions. To accomplish that, we will propose a simple design agreement. Your acceptance of the design agreement moves us into the next steps of the planning process.

Assess & Resolve


We measure and assess your existing space then create digital drawings to assist with the design process.

Your customized online client portal, keeps your project’s information organized, up-to-date and always at hand, ensuring the best results.

Your specialist creates the first formal designs and you meet to review them. From there the collaborative fun really begins as we work together to refine and tune the look, details and size of your project.

Whether you like to shop for the details or prefer options provided for you, we work with you in a customized process that fits your lifestyle. We help you organize and prioritize the final touches so you won’t be overwhelmed.

Finalize & Prepare


Bluestem guarantees the cost and scope of your project with a detailed bid-priced construction contract. In preparation, we conduct a Project Analysis with our specialty trade partners. This eliminates many surprises.

Bluestem commits to keeping your project on-schedule. To reduce the risk of delays, we finalize options with you and initiate the ordering process, so items arrive on time. You receive a project schedule and can track the milestones in your online portal. And – the best part – your design specialist is with you throughout for questions and encouragement until you are enjoying your new space!

We end our preparation stage with an on-site meeting. You will meet the construction leadership team for a pre-construction walk-through. They review the details of the mobilization process, reducing disruption, and special considerations (like meeting the dog).

Construction & Warranty


On day one, we protect the surfaces of your home and prepare the site for construction activities.

Great communication is easy. Messages within the client portal alerting the whole team, assuring you are heard. Your design specialist continues to monitor the construction process — working with the field team to ensure that the finished product is just what you envisioned.

Our team monitors quality at each step so the details are right and make sure your new project will last.
Progress payments are updated and clearly shown in the online portal — you always know exactly where you stand — no surprises.

Once your project is complete, and our craftspeople have finished the final touches, your project enters the warranty period. The online portal stays active for the first year, making it easy for you to check details and reach the project team. Should anything arise, we are here for you!
