you are a member of the Forbes 400, a very important
factor in designing a home is the budget. Experience has
shown us that the most successful design ventures begin
with a firm idea of a projected cost. If you begin
designing your home without a realistic budget, or
limits, you could end up with a set of plans where the
estimated costs come in well over your expectations.
(Incidentally, I’ve never seen an estimate come in under
a client’s expectations.) I have seen, though, many
plans over-designed at the expense and time of the
client, resulting in anger and frustration with the
architects who designed them and the builders who bid
them. Our design/build program has been very successful
in avoiding this by allowing us to design and build your
home with as many amenities, features and space that are
within your expected budget.
