The Big Question
The number one question that prospective clients have when inquiring about a custom home is “how much will it cost”. What sets Plan-It Homes apart from most builders is we operate solely on a project management fee which is predetermined and agreed to well before beginning of construction work, whereas most builders will operate on cost plus contract where the more you spend, the more they will make. The big difference with this approach is the client can spend $10,000 or $10,000,000 on their project and builder costs will not go up, keeping your overall project costs down! The client simply pays the subcontractors for their work at cost and at preferred builders rates.
The most important part of the pre-construction phase is gaining a complete understanding of our client’s vision for the property. We work closely with our clients to understand their lifestyle and property goals and will work with them to create a finished product that perfectly suits their needs and desires.
Plan-It Homes utilizes a comprehensive cost analysis process to help our clients establish a realistic budget that achieves their objectives. What sets Plan-It Homes apart, is the architect who designs your home is also the project manager of your project, overseeing construction on a daily basis and coordinating with various trades to ensure everything is built as designed.
Once the design is complete, Plan-It Homes begins the construction process. Utilizing our extensive network of contacts in the construction industry, we assemble our team of specialty tradesmen, project managers and budget managers.
We utilize only highly skilled subcontractors and suppliers who deliver the highest levels of quality and professionalism. Your project will be assigned a full-time project manager who will closely manage each step of the process so that your project runs smoothly. Your finished building will meet and exceed your expectations, down to the smallest details.
The key to a successful project is clear communication and commitment to achieving a common goal. We provide consistent, clear communication throughout the build and make sure that everyone is informed of the construction progress and understands the next steps.
Plan-It Homes is well-known for our strong commitment to excellence and performance. Every decision we make is centered around what is in our client’s best interests. We don’t cut corners, we don’t jeopardize quality, and we approach each project as if it were our own. Our team is committed to staying on budget and finishing on time with the highest levels of excellence.
When the building is finished, we ensure that you have everything you need to keep the property well maintained and in good working order. We provide extensive records, including operations manuals, appliance instructions, inspection documents, plans and photos taken during every phase of construction.
