Does the written proposal include permit fees?

The permit is essentially the owner’s certification of authorized alterations to an existing structure, a receipt from the city if you will. Therefore permit fees are considered an additional cost and will not be included on the written proposal.

How much will the initial consultation cost?

We will schedule a free consultation for a licensed project manager to meet with you at the proposed job site to discuss the scope in detail. If needed we will provide a 3D design for a fee that will be credited toward your project should you accept our proposal. By paying this fee you become the sole owner of the 3D design and can shop the design around to any company you so choose.
