Design Build Process
Some “small” projects are also candidates for the design build process if they involve removing interior or exterior walls or other major structural components.
If you are looking to create an open floor plan, create a new master bedroom suite, bump out the 2nd floor or add an addition to your home we provide everything necessary to get your project from the vision in your head to a fully permitted ready to build project.
What is a Design Agreement?
A design agreement is NOT a contract to build. The construction agreement is executed after the design agreement process is complete.
If I complete a Design Agreement am I obligated to complete the project with Anchor?
How much does a Design agreement cost?
We require 50% deposit to execute the design and the remainder of the fee is broken down according to the complexity of the project.
When will I know exactly how much it will cost to build my project?
How long does it take to complete a design and start my project?
Once you have selected your preferred design concept it generally takes an additional 30-60 days to complete all required engineering and architectural requirements for permit ready drawings depending on the size and scope of your project.
The permitting process can take 60-90 days depending on your jurisdiction.
Project start dates are determined based on our current production schedule, final permit approval, the availability of materials and your desired schedule.
