Room addition can be approved with our help (via a walk thru process)* in 1 to 2 days. Complete homes plans must be submitted and will take, on average, 20 working days for approval.
Important - Our current calendar workload is between1 and 2 months. However, initial meetings can be completed within a week. There is a $200.00 (cash) fee for an initial site visit (required for all remodel and addition projects). There is a $200.00 (cash) fee for a 1 hour office consultation (required for new home projects). These fees if assessed are subtracted from the final bill if the project moves forward. Once a contract is signed and a retainer paid the project is placed on our calendar.
