Our Fee Schedule

Most projects are based upon the traditional three phase design program on a written fixed fee or hourly rate with a not to exceed cost indicating what you may expect to pay for our services. As every project is truly unique, an initial free consultation is held to determine the general scope of the project.

The following are the three general phases of plan preparations.
