A few helpful Frequent Asked Questions and answers to guide you through some of the more common questions.
How much per square foot will my house cost?
That is a very difficult question to answer. There are so many variables at work. It will depend on materials used, material prices at the time, specific conditions of job site, design of home and other factors specific to the client’s home. We try to give a best case / worst case scenario range for pricing at the beginning stages of conversation, but cannot absolutely guarantee accuracy.
How long will it take to build our home?
This will depend on a couple of different factors. Weather is always the most determining factor. This is self-explanatory and a lot of it is determined by the time of year construction will be started. Sub-contractor schedules, material availability, in some cases unforeseen circumstances and change orders created by the client are all factors that can skew the determined time for completion.
