Frequently asked questions

  • What is the cost per square foot to build an addition?

There are so many factors that are taken into account that there really is no set cost per square foot that we use when pricing a room addition.

  • Do I need a permit for my project?

                In most cases the answer is Yes, you need a permit. Every building department is different and has their own building guidelines and pricing structure.

  • How long does it take to get a permit?

                this varied depending on where your home is located. Most single story additions can be permitted in one to two weeks. Second story additions will often take 2 or more months.

  • Whose name should the Permit be in?

                The name that goes on the permit is the name of the person or company that is ultimately responsible for the project. We recommend putting the permit in the contractor's name for homeowner protection.

  • Should I get my own plans?

                Our advice is no, do not get your own plans, and their are a couple reasons why. 1) Homeowners who get their own plans first are often surprised later on at the cost of building their project and as a result, their project must be put on hold. 2) During the building process, there are often changes that need to be made to the plans. This puts the responsibility back on the homeowner, which adds additional costs, as well as puts the job on hold. 3) A design-build contractor working with the homeowner during the design and planning stage will foresee and prevent most larger obsticals down the road. As a result, there will be fewer plan changes, less future costs, and fewer project delays.

  • How long will my project take?

                Once building begins, we put it in writing that your project will be done in 90-120 days (for most projects).

  • How can I find out own my own if my building department will let me build what I want?

                Every property has a set of zoning requirements that is defined at your building department. Many of the requirements can be found online or by calling or visiting your city or county building department. We will also do this for you when you schedule a free in-home estimate and/or design consultation.
