What About Pricing, Fees, And Draws?
Our fees are based on project scope, rather than square footage. We typically fit into the median range, when compared to other quality builders. Payments are commensurate with services. Architectural fees are typically payable in 3 installments. Construction requires a 10% deposit when the contract is signed. Most of our construction contracts are fixed fee. There are usually 10 -12 draws over the build period. We may consider a cost-plus agreement when the scope of the project is more extensive.

Costly, Commonly-Made Mistakes To Avoid!
The PDH-DES system has been proven over many years of Builds & Renovations. It can provide a faster and more cost-effective result than any other alternative.

Why Should We Hire You?
First of all, don’t feel overwhelmed by the process. We’re going to start by outlining your qualifications to the home-ownership requirements. Are you qualified to hire us ? Brainstorming how these qualifications play out in real construction life, and then assessing what makes you stand out. Ownership of the land is Just the 20% of your dream home. Once you outline the means and resources and your dedication to built only then our Advisory council will consider your proposal.
How Much Will My Home Renovation Labor Cost?
The whine of power saws on your new addition or remodeling project can be the exciting sound of your dreams taking shape. Major construction projects can be scary and expensive. But doing homework on the front end can help you develop a firm budget, a clear vision, and a more fruitful relationship with your contractors. It might also lessen the fear factor. Start with the biggest, broadest question: What do you hope to accomplish with your project, and how much do you want to spend? Your contractors can help you work your way to the smaller questions about specifics, like materials and other details. That kind of strategic planning should bring more clarity to the project, and this can be a valuable asset to you.
Size and Complexity of the Addition or Remodel
Cost factors like the size of a porch, or an extra room are easy to identify. But the nature of each project carries levels of complexity that might not be immediately apparent. Early on, you’ll want to get a handle on how many general contractors, electricians, plumbers, carpenters and decorators you’ll need to complete your project. You’ll also want to consider the cost of permits and inspections. Then, budget some extra cushion for the unexpected. Here are couple of example: Perhaps you have an older home, and when your contractors tear up your carpet, they discover structural problems with the flooring. Maybe the plumbers find old pipes that need to be replaced. Hope for the best, but plan for a bit of the worst.
What Do I Need To Know To Set The Renovation Budget?
We’re careful with the budget because every penny counts! When prospective Clients talk to us, they tell us that one of the things that worries them the most, is the thought of making an agreement to build a home for a certain price, and then getting surprised later when they learn that the price has increased significantly without any notice.
