Final construction budgets are determined after designs are complete and a full list of the scope of work and detailed specifications are established.

The cost per square foot can be deceiving and hard to compare as most houses are different and can vary widely in price based on design and content.
Some are custom one of a kind designs based on your unique situation, some are stock plans from the internet or plan books and some are stock plans that we modify. We assist you to find the right one for you. We caution you not to purchase a stock plan on line, etc. without conferring with your builder first.
