To use a car analogy: a Honda, BMW and Porsche might be the
Estimates. At its core, every price a contractor provides is an estimate — of the labor and materials it will take to complete your project. In residential construction, an “estimate” (also known as a bid) generally is not a firm price. Estimates and bids are only as accurate
they’re based on. For instance, the least accurate estimate would be one based on square-foot pricing, a range of square-foot pricing or a typical cost for projects of that type. The result won’t tell you what it will cost, but it will tell you if your cost expectations are generally in alignment with the

driveway. You may want to try speaking with a concrete contractor about staining or acid washing the pavers.
We were hired as the architect only for this home. Depending on the selections and regional differentiation for material cost, I would estimate approx. $180 per sq. ft. At 5,200 SF that would
approximately 3,570 sq. ft. The liveable space is approximately 5,200 sq. ft. and I would estimate the cost of construction to be around $180/sq. ft. We were not the builder for this home, so I am not sure of the actual cost, but I would assume $900K plus the land.

what is the approx cost of a project like this? thank you!!
We do not give any estimates of costs on our projects to the public because there are so many variables in an estimate that could change the cost drastically and we would hate to give you a number that wasn't accurate. Location, type of contractor you hire, finish materials, cost of the materials in
in your area, labor costs, ect. Your best bet is to contact some local contractors and see if they will give you a rough idea. Good luck!
Yes, this is a copper roof. The contractor sourced the material.

Get the names of the contractor’s last three to five clients and ask all of them these questions. Did the contractor seem knowledgeable and resourceful? Was he on budget? Was he on time? If there were delays or cost overruns, was it the contractor who caused them? If so, how did he deal

Simply put, your contractor buys materials and charges you an hourly rate to install them. But in the hands of an unethical contractor, you might find yourself on the
deal with them? Did the client feel the contractor worked collaboratively to come up with mutually satisfactory resolutions to problems, or was the tone combative? Were the clients happy with the workmanship and the contractor’s subcontractors’ work? Did he keep a clean site? How was he with follow-up
