Design Fees

House Design Fees

Design fees are based on square footage.

The base cost is determined by the footprint (air conditioned) of the building and it decreases as square footage increases. Additional costs will include design for built out basements and upstairs bedrooms and built out loft design.

The following prices are quoted for a FULL SET OF DOCUMENTS as described in our Construction Documents section. If you do not need all of the drawings listed (some customers simply want a good floor plan and some elevations and do not need electric drawings, schedules etc.) your final cost will be less than listed below. Please call us and we’ll be glad to quote your project.
