We have a program that includes home design fees when we build your home. Contractors, are the best judge of costs since we pay the bills and track these costs very carefully. So we have put the horse in front of the cart. Our job cost history is a tool. We constantly update this information in our estimating systems. This is how we are able to provide clients and architects concept estimates, in detail, on just a simple floor plan alone. We fully disclose all costs through out this estimating process prior to any agreements. In the Design Build process, and before home plans are completed, we provide detailed estimates with your desired finishes, such as counter tops, tile or stone floors, carpets doors and windows. As the design evolves the estimate evolves with it. As you become more comfortable with your design the cost become more accurate. At this point we form an agreement it is totally in you hands. If you chose to get more estimates that’s fine.
