How long does it take?

  • That is dependent on several factor, includeing the size and custom features of the design and the number of changes you wish to make. Small changes such as adjusting walls and moving windows does not affect the overall design but for major redesign of outer walls or roof design, additional costs may be added.

Where can I find out how much it will cost to build?

  • We can provide a detailed material list of all materials needed to build what has been designed. We can also run a rough estimate of the expense based on where you live. This does not include land cost in these calculations.

Why doesn't builders provide this service?

  • Some do to a point but normally builders have designs that they are experienced with and know the cost to build. They may make small changes for you but it won't be customized to exactly what you want. Our designs are done to your vision and taste so long as it meets all applicable building codes.

What is cost of the plans?

  • The cost varies by project but you will find for a custom design our price is very competitive and reasonable. We usually take the square feet of the design to drive the quote. If your designs have different roof systems or curved walls, that is also figured into the price The first initial meeting is free to discuss what you want and get your wish list on what you want to see in the finished project. Once the scope of work is agreed upon and you have land to build, we gather all of the requirements for where you want to build to ensure we are compliant and will provide a quote. If you just need the plans for a future build, we can provide you a quote right there. For average amounts, see our Pricing Page for more details.

When is the right time to get a set of plans?

  • Construction plans do not expire. Even if you do not have land, having these plans will allow you to understand the cost to build and budget for it. You will need them with you if you go to a bank to finance the build. They will want to see exactly what you are going to spend. When you do get your land, simply contact us to provide you the plot plan (how the house lays out on the property) which is included in the quoted price. Getting the plans for a renovation or addition works the same way... having it available allows you to see the material list and buy over time which will limit the financial impact.
