FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How long will it take and what will it cost?
Every new home build or renovation is different with regards to the length of time the project will take as well as the cost.

We help make sure everything for the whole project has been accounted for. As there is no easy way to answer this question, please feel free to call us to discuss your project in-depth. We would be happy to work with you to create a budget that will meet your suite your needs.
What is your cost per square foot?
The answer depends on the style of home, size of home and the features that are chosen for the project, for example, cabinet features, counter tops, flooring and such. All these features can drastically affect the cost of the project, because they are not increasing the square footage.
Once the drawings are complete and the features for the project have been chosen, an accurate square foot price can be established.
