Planning a custom home or large remodel/addition can seem like a daunting task for someone pondering the idea: How much will it cost? How long will it take? How will I finance the project? How can I get a realistic idea of what it will cost before sinking a lot of money into architects and designers?
Because it is impossible to give a firm price without a complete set of plans, and a good set of plans is a serious investment, people typically find themselves in a bit of a quandary: how can you find out how much a project will cost without committing to hiring an architect? Van Matre recommends that people considering building a custom home or a large remodel/addition take the following steps:
