What happens at our initial meeting?

The initial meeting is designed to:

  • Define your needs
  • Determine the scope of work to be done
  • Determine if we are a good “fit” for each other
  • Determine budget & schedule

This meeting is at no cost or obligation to you.

Be prepared to list your needs in order of priority. In the case of a remodeling project, tell us what you like about your home, what you want to improve and your style preferences. Don’t be afraid to show us your notebook of sketches and magazine clippings.

Can you build from my floor plan?

Yes, but not all floor plans are created equally. There is a level of completeness in specification and detail required to develop a realistic budget and accurately translate your desires to the craftsman that perform the actual construction.

Bidding an incomplete floor plan with no written specifications leaves the choice of methods and materials open wide to interpretation. Most contractors usually selects what suits him best, not you. We work with you to ensure we develop a complete project plan for your needs.

What are allowances? 

Allowances are budget amounts for items you have not selected prior to the budget process or entering into the contract to build your project.

How much per square foot will my home or project cost? 

Although this seems as a simple, well-intentioned question, it can create much confusion about the true cost of building. Truthfully, it depends on you and your choices for the project. We custom tailor every job to fit your goals and budget.
