Although we do all types of home remodeling projects, room additions would have to be the heart and soul of our company. We typically work with the client to develop the design. This better helps us to provide the space desired while keeping an eye on the budget. The added benefit is that we are very familiar with what the finished project is expected to be before the first nail is ever driven.
We have developed a process that works well for our company and has produced many quality projects and satisfied clients.
The Planning Process For Additions To Your Property
Initial phone contact
Discuss the project. Go over some generalized details, schedule expectations, budget and any special requirements you may have..
Meet with both parties for approximately 1 hour. Study physical layout and observe possible obstacles. Go over in a little more detail the goals you have in mind for the additional space. This is also a time to see if we’re a good fit to work together. If applicable, a quote for the design fee is given at this time. The design fee is based on the size and complexity of the job. Fees usually range from $1,500.00 to $3,000.00.
Preliminary design initial meeting
You will have been mailed a design agreement and will have returned it along with the fee prior to this meeting. We will visit the home again and meet with both parties. (we also encourage that anyone else that you will be seeking an opinion from, i.e. parents, children, friends that have recently remodeled, be present as well.) It’s much easier for us to incorporate their ideas or answer their questions face to face.
While at that meeting we will take measurements and photograph the areas of the home that will be affected by the remodel.
During the preliminary design phase
We will meet on site with trade contractors if necessary. We will fax or e-mail the drawings to get your input as the design comes together.
Once a design has been finalized we will provide you with an estimated cost. This estimate will typically have allowances for certain items.
