In general, we will prepare an Estimate for your project based on the plans you provide and details you disclose during our pre-construction meetings. Our Estimate is broken down in detail by each stage of construction and differentiates labor and materials. Each invoice will be based on time and materials, and will include a spreadsheet that shows a running balance for each component so you are well informed of our progress and adherence to the budget.
We suggest your first meeting be with your financial planner and/or banking consultant. Every detail from the choice of building lot to lighting fixtures is dependent on your budget. We would be happy to recommend a local lender should you need one.
Windows, privacy, views, energy efficiency, etc. We have worked with a number of great local architects and designers and would be happy to make a recommendation should you want one.
This sheet helps with the pre-construction planning process and serves as a checklist for every decision that should be made prior to construction commencement.
Our detailed Estimate is attached to the contract, as well as an Estimate Explanation.
We hope that through the pre-construction procedures we have earned your confidence and trust to ensure construction of your home be as stress and pain free as possible.
The enormity of your decision to build a new home is not lost on us and we strive to make the process as enjoyable as possible. In addition, we have been on the client end of the relationship and understand the overwhelming number of decisions that need to be made. We are here to provide you with the tools you may need to make those decisions and guidance when you want it.
During our initial pre construction meeting we want to learn about your wants, needs and style. Our goal is to merge your ideas with your budget.
The better the planning done before the commencement of a project the better we are able to ensure your project stays on schedule and on budget. Accordingly, we provide Homeowners with a pre-construction checklist to help you with the planning and decision making. Bear in mind that changes can still be made during the building phase, however, the above processes are designed to eliminate this necessity wherever possible. But we do understand that changes are sometimes unavoidable.
