Frequently Asked Questions

What can we afford?


With new construction ranging from $130 to $180 per square foot, as your builder we would sit with you to discuss a variety of items, materials and finishes. As a great builder we can save money and headaches if design, finishes, and items are discussed and selected upfront. For example, if you are budgeted for a $300 stainless steel kitchen sink, you should not expect or select a hand pounded copper triple bowl sink at $1600. Common sense!

Home Design - where do you start?


Over the past 30 years of building, we have found that it is much better to meet and discuss with us what your expectations are before going to a designer or an architect.  This way, you will have an idea of a budget. Designers and Architects are an important part of process; however, you need to know upfront what a good budget should be. This can be done with a knowledgeable, experienced builder.
