Frequently Asked Questions
Working with a single company minimizes risks and streamlines the entire process. Typical communication gaps between designer/draftsman/ engineer etc., and the builder is eliminated. Potential issues are flagged and dealt with early on in the process rather than on site during construction.
Depending on your project’s specific circumstances (site plan requirement, minor variance application etc.), this phase can take up to a year or longer. We find this is not something most people are aware of, and it should be considered from the beginning to maintain proper timeline expectations.
Soft costs are the fees associated with obtaining all the requirements laid out by the municipality and design plans. Depending on the circumstances of your project, the average cost for this phase is $15,000-$30,000. But each project is different. We provide our clients real cost savings during this phase with our extensive knowledge and experience navigating these many steps.
There is nothing wrong with asking this question, as it’s an easy way to try to compare builders. However, this method of comparison can be very misleading as the definition of what goes into the calculation varies. For example, does it include any exterior work like decks and sidewalks, are the level of finishes comparable, are net zero building practices included and so on.
We understand there is a common fear amongst homeowners to reveal their budget to a contractor or builder but it’s important to be honest with us (and yourselves) when it comes to how much you are able to invest in a project. Knowing your budget upfront allows us to present options that are within your comfort zone. It is unproductive to be months into planning only to realize the design exceeds your budget.
The construction timeline varies greatly depending on the type of build, but the average timeline is 9-10 months for new construction.
