Why does this Tenant Improvement Cost So Much?

    I’m often asked questions like this in the early phases of a tenant improvement. The client has many questions during early phases of an office relocation, and they normally would prefer to pin down the cost question quickly, so they can make a decision whether to move forward.

Your Custom Home Design Architect: What to Expect

Hiring a custom home design architect sends a message to the world.  It shows very clearly that you are not going to be satisfied with a cookie cutter home in a housing tract.  You want your home built your way.  Before you contract with one, however, it’s nice to know what to expect.

So you want to buy a home, and not only that, you want it built to your exacting specifications. Then you are going to need a custom home design architect to help you to get it built, and here are the reasons why. First off, there is the matter of all of the red tape.
Do you know who to contact for an environmental impact study? How about what permits you’re going to need? How many bedrooms are you going to want? How many bathrooms? Are you going to need any special wiring such as for a home theater? An architect will sit down with you and go over the following items, that he will guide you on how to get. You’re going to need:

Site Plan or Survey. This document, which is prepared by a surveyor, shows property lines, easements and all existing structures on the property. It is often included with your closing documents.

Property restrictions, (if applicable). Many properties have regulatory limitations that exceed the city’s or county’s building requirements with restrictive covenants. These covenants can limit the materials, establish mandatory building set-backs and require approval of any plans. Look in your closing documents for these papers. If you aren’t sure if your property has such restrictions, check with your real estate agent, closing attorney, or property association.

Your Clip File. Start an image file by collecting pictures of spaces and buildings you like. Create a list of the rooms and functions you want accommodated. Write down your dream of the perfect experience in your completed home or business. Identify your goals for project schedule and budget.

Floor Plans. A copy of your floor plan is the best record, though many older buildings don’t have these. If the original plans are unavailable, check your closing documents for a plan that may have been included in the appraisal or in the description of the property. If there is not existing documentation, we will field measure the existing building and prepare accurate “as-built” drawings that allow us to develop plans that reflect the actual field conditions to be considered.

I Have All That. What Does a Custom Home Architect Need From Me Next?

Not much. At this point, all you need to do is schedule an appointment with your architect. He will go over custom home designs with you.

We will continue this article, but for now, know that you will need the services of a custom home design architect.
