DESIGN PRICE DETAILS

This Option is for clients who are not sure who they would like to build, or would like to complete the project themselves and pay someone to design and price out their project.  

This stage is similar to our Design - Build offer but without the build. We plan out everything we would do to complete your project. Clients choose this stage for price shopping styles of homes or locations. At the end, clients have to option to take this information they paid us for and chose to ask us to complete the project OR have someone else complete the project OR hold of until a later time. Note that time may reflect prices. 

 

Schedule/Payment plan:

1: Initial Meeting - Approx = 1hr. We like to know your goals for the project. What is MOST important, why are you doing this, what is it for, who will use it, what projects have you done before, who are your references of past contractors that have worked with you, how much are you willing to invest, and what is your timeline. 

2: Design Contract - If after our initial meeting we find that we will have a good working relationship, a initial Retainer of 5% of project estimated* will be required for us to establish a starting point for your project and show you options you may like based on our initial meeting. This is non refundable and will be used to accumulate the costs to start designing the project according to the intial plans presented to us. Designing and Costing rate is minimum $85/hr and will be billed against initial retainer balance unless otherwise specified. If project needs more time to design and cost than initial retainer, further services will be invoiced to homeowner at that rate. This allows homeowner to have the flexibility to adjust project attributes to scale costs up or down once they see the total project cost. Though some time and money surprises (especially with nature) are unavoidable, we don't like surprises and plan to avoid them. 

*Initial Project Estimation is only a guess, actual costs calculated later. 

3: Design Phase - Once we have initial ideas, we will provide initial designs to help you envision how your "baby will look like as an adult." This includes Initial Floor-plans up to revised Preliminary Floor-plans with all exterior 2D elevations. 3D renditions can be priced in for clients to see and virtually walk through an example of their project. Depending on the project, specialized professionals may be hired and added to costs to aid in design. Some homeowners need a year or more in this stage, others less. Efforts will be made to begin with your end in mind. This is NOT where final project costs are established. Don't worry! This stage takes a long time if even the little things change. Small changes may create a domino effect for many other items to be changed or modified. Understanding this now will ease the anxiety for many clients' first time projects. But don't worry! This is the stage that avoids scenarios where a homeowner tells their builder "just do this little extra, just add this over there, or make it a little bigger" and then gets the unexpected bill for "Extras" at the end. This stage ends with payments to proceed to finals.  

4: Build Contract - Pricing Finals - We have the game plan set in stone. Now lets Price everything out. We are essentially taking things you put in your shopping cart and adding them up for you. This contract involves all the calculated payments due that are necessary to price Final Designs. It also includes the list of subcontractors used to price out your project. This is helpful for homeowners wanting to build their own project but need help in a few areas. Clients choosing this Process Offer understand that changes to plans after pricing your final plans will present change orders for price and practice to accommodate for your improvements. This stage ends when the the final design payments are made and client is happy with their plans knowing the estimated price to complete them.
