Our agreement is divided into two phases so that you can visualize our concept for your remodeling prior to entering into a construction agreement.
Phase One – Design a Preliminary Floor Plan
We sign the Design Agreement to retain a design work and research (zoning, property setbacks, septic tank if required). A preliminary plan is developed and reviewed. At this stage, the engineer (if required) and key subcontractors are consulted for input on the preliminary design, as needed. Desired products are addressed and a preliminary budget is established. We requesta retainer fee for this which is credited against the contraction agreement. We will present our concept plans and construction estimate a couple of weeks later. The concept plan is not intended for construction purposes.
Phase Two – Construction Agreement
The final working set of plans and budget will be completed after the homeowner has approved the preliminary floor plan and the preliminary budget. At this point the homeowner will select cabinets, counter tops, plumbing fixtures, electrical fixtures, and flooring. The final budget, working drawing and, specifications, will be presented to the homeowner. After the final budget is established, approved, and a final construction agreement has been signed between the homeowner and R.E. Robinson Remodeling a groundbreaking date will be set and final preparations will be made to apply for building permit and began construction.
