Since I currently reside on Kauai, I will answer this based on local projects. For a typical smaller-scale residential remodel project, I usually require a minimum of 3 – 4 months for the project to be completed. This is contingent upon having a very detailed and solid plan, and making sure that all of the goods are ordered and here on island prior to the start of construction work. On larger homes, the time frame will usually be longer, and can take up to 6-12 months, depending on the extent of work, as well as other factors such as permitting requirements etc. For interior furnishings and decor only, I like to allow about 8-12 weeks to get things here, after the selections have been made. Most furniture manufacturers take anywhere from 6 – 12 weeks for production, and then we allow another 2+ weeks for transit to Kauai. Even retail stores such as West Elm and Crate & Barrel will have these lead times for “made to order” goods. If you are on a very tight schedule, then we can look into “in stock” and “pre-made” items, but still need to allow about 3-4 weeks to receive the items and then deliver/ install. I have worked on some projects where it was necessary to shop locally (Kauai and Oahu) to find pieces that were in Hawaii and ready to be installed. Even though this is an option, you will still be very limited to what is available, and won’t have much flexibility on pricing or style. I really like to plan ahead, so that I can give my clients exactly what they want, and not have to compromise.
