Custom Design Fees
Types of Pricing
- Design, Consultation, Rework & Remodel work is $85.00 per hour.
- Design Time can relate to the initial layout of the floor plan and elevations. It can also relate to changes to the design that require further thought of how something will be put together. If a plan comes to me that has not first met the Copyright Criteria stated below, it may have an hour or more of Design time charged to that plan.
- Consultation: Two hours of consultation are included in all new plans. However, consultation does not cover the time reworking plans together at the office on the computer and charges will incur in 15-minute intervals.
- Rework relates to most of the changes made to a plan after it’s been through the preliminary design stage. We alter a few things that is part of continuing the process toward completion. If you wish to take a different direction from the original then rework charges will apply.
- Remodel work will apply any time work is done that falls outside the standard residential drawing practices. Charges will apply any time spent with you or the customer, here in the office or out on the job site.
