It's not surprising that we hear this question almost every day of the year.
It's an important piece of the puzzle for anyone trying to budget for home renovations. The short answer to this question, however, is we don't know how much your project will cost....not right now, anyway.
The longer, more nuanced answer to this question is that it depends on what you would like us to build. It's kind of like asking: "how much does a bag of groceries cost?" That, of course, depends on what you've put in the bag. Is it Ramen noodles, a dented can of chili, and Koolaid? Or filet mignon, lobster, and a bottle of nice red wine? Just like at the grocery store, the choices you make about your project drive the price. We're here to help you make those choices and build a project that fulfills your desires.
While we're on the subject of project pricing, let's address some of the less helpful methods of information gathering when it comes to remodeling budgets. Here's a few we hear about regularly:
That's it. There's no magic to it. The only way to really understand what a project will cost is to undertake a planning effort which will equip you with the right information to make choices and prioritize aspects of your project. When we gather information about what a client wants, it is possible to determine the costs of the project and offer alternative solutions to fit a budget if necessary. Every aspect of the project needs to be dreamed up and then specified with input from the client, design staff, builder, and the tradesmen that will bring it to life.
All the information about building your project needs to be determined at some point and it's much more efficient to gather that information before we build. Otherwise it's a reactive situation that will "cause confusion and delay!", as Sir Topham Hatt would say.
If you think it sounds like a great idea to plan your project well so that you fully understand what it will cost as well as how it will be scheduled, etc., we would love to work with you. Please reach out on our contact page.
