what we do
Otter Creek Homes utilizes the design-build method to provide clients with a well-rounded home renovation experience. We manage your project from start to finish easing the stresses of hiring many different trades for the job. We use welcoming design, constructed with superior craftsmanship to give you your dream place to call home. We’re confident that our innovative approach takes the anxiety out of the home reno process by streamlining communication and ensuring quality control.
At Otter Creek Homes, we believe the design process is equally as important as the construction itself. The environment you live in each day becomes an integral part of who you are. It should be a direct reflection of you and your family.
OCH specializes in creating environments that feel balanced and warm. Lauren brings her love for natural light, open space and touches of greenery to every home.
Connecting with the client, understanding their vision and crafting a space that’s functional as well as beautiful is Lauren’s number one goal, because HEY, you want to love the way it looks & not feel bad enjoying it too.
Otter Creek Homes is a full-service remodeling contractor. This means that we take care of everything related to the construction of your project, from permits to management of trades and everything in between. We’ll sit down with you before the project begins to make sure every detail is captured and our visions align.
We specialize in finding ways to help you better utilize the space already under your roof (think basement and attic renovations) or upgrade an existing space in your home (think kitchens and bathrooms). When there just isn’t enough space in your existing footprint, we’re here to make that dream master suite become a reality. Otter Creek Homes is proud to be an EPA certified renovator that uses lead-safe practices, keeping you and your family safe in your home.
What if you love your space but it just needs an update, a refresh to feel like YOU and your family? This is where our styling comes in. Your space may not need a full remodel or design but adding a few fresh & new pieces can turn any house into a home!
Are you a real estate agent looking to sell a beautiful Seacoast, NH home? We offer home staging services to help your buyers see all the potential & sell that home as quick as possible.
what makes us different
We are a husband and wife duo that whole heartedly believes :
“the collective impact of the team is bigger than the sum of its individual parts”
Early on, we found a “secret sauce” in the renovation of our first home and realized a synergy that happened when we worked together. Lauren’s ability to envision the beauty in every space and Chris’ ability to make it a reality created an undeniable partnership and a stunning final product. It’s our mission to bring that energy to every project that we do.
In addition we strive to be a company that’s mindfully rooted in inclusivity of all people and believe that creating space for everyone to come together in community is one of the greatest privileges of being in business. Check out our workshops page for more details.
how it works
Step 1: Complete the inquiry form below, share with us your inspiration (if you have it) and we will get back to you shortly asking for photos of your space and to schedule an initial phone conversation.
Step 2: Our phone conversation will be time to talk through your needs, wants, specific goals and budget for the project. After our phone call we will follow up with an email sharing a rough estimate for your project.
Step 3: If this estimate feels aligned for you & you’re ready to move forward, we will schedule an in-home consultation for a fee of $250. This will allow us to see the space in person, go over feasibility of the project and begin talking design ideas.
Step 4: After our in-home visit, we will reach out to our subcontractors and present you a formal quote for your project. This quote will be within the budget you have set and give you a clear understanding of the work that will be performed.
Step 5: If this quote feels right and you’re ready to move forward we will sign a design agreement. This allows us to create a mood board with your vision and preferences in mind from our home visit as well as a 3D render so you can see your inspiration come to life.
Step 6: We will work together tweaking mood boards and renders until the design of the space feels just right. At this point we will sign a construction contract which allows us to finalize the project timeline, order material selections and begin construction.
Step 7: We will work tirelessly to bring your vision to life, communicating any set backs, managing all subcontractors & overseeing quality of the project thoughtfully and within our timeline.
Step 8: Design is implemented, construction is completed & your house is now a home.
