Once we clearly understand the work scope, we send you a proposal with a fixed fee for a full permit package and this way, you know upfront what you get and how much you pay for it.

At this stage, we can introduce subcontractors that may be involved in your project: site surveyors, geotechnical engineers, general contractors, electricians, plumbers, interior designers, landscape architects, etc. Even if you decide to work with someone else, regardless,we gladly connect you with some great subcontractors you may need, We recommend the same people that would hire for our own home during a remodel or expansion.

Depending on the scope - a site survey of your lot may be needed. If so, we recommend that you order/schedule one as soon as possible. This may affect some crucial decisions on the project, such as setbacks, view restrictions, and/or height restrictions regulated by your jurisdiction.

We are looking for an accurate location of a building/buildings on your lot concerning property lines, setbacks, topography lines, trees, wells, septic system, etc.

A Geotech report may be needed for structural engineering and often required by your jurisdiction. They are looking for any natural resources, for example, quality of the soil (bearing properties), any streams, wetlands, landslides, etc. situated on your property.
