Initially we meet and get acquainted with the the property owners and the project. It helps if some prior thought has been given to ballparks and budgets. If not, however, we will give you a ballpark figure on site to help define the budget. You can buy a table for $50 at Walmart or $5,000 at Restoration Hardware- for us to build the perfect “table” for you, we need to know what you want out of it;
- How it will look and function
- Long term or short term use
- Shape, height, etc., as well as how much you are willing/able to spend.
- The mood you are trying to achieve
After we can agree on a budget for the work, we move on to the Design/Quote Agreement.
Design & Quote It
As we design your job, we intentionally make decisions that enable us to not only include your desired design features, but keep us within the budget. We can give an exact quote once we have designed the project to your satisfaction.
The fee for the design/quote
process is as followed:
$5000 - $20k
$20K - $100k
$100k - $250k
$250k - $500k
$1,000 flat rate
5% of Budget/Estimate
$3,000 + 2% of the B/E
$5,500 + 1% of the B/E
After the design is done and the final project is quoted, it gets presented as a complete package, including; 3D renderings, construction documents, a detailed description of the scope of work, and an exact price for the work to be done. At this point we can either move straight to the Remodeling Contract or we can stop. Either way, you will be given copies of the plans and conceptual drawings, our quote, and any other special preparations that we made on your behalf. If you decide not to move forward with Creative Carpentry, then we keep the fee for services rendered. If you do proceed with us, 100% OF THE FEE WILL BE PUT TOWARDS YOUR DOWNPAYMENT. That is how much we value thorough pre-construction planning.
