Cedar Homes: Design Costs

The Cedar Designs / Linwood cedar homes package provides you with all materials required to finish your custom kit home to the lock-up stage with the exception of the actual concrete foundations. The design costs including construction blueprints are also fixed as part of this package price.

One of the major causes of cost overrun are changes made to a building actually in process, particularly when nothing is put in writing concerning the costs involved. Some less scrupulous suppliers and builders will quote "artificially" low and expect to make money by making changes at a high incremental price. Alternatively they may give you an unrealistic price per finished square foot cost to divert attention from the cost of materials or services that they are individually supplying.

If the custom design is well thought out and incorporated properly into the construction blueprints, then the contract price for labor as well as kit home package materials can be fixed accordingly, eliminating this kind of problem.

The budget will consist of:

- Linwood Kit Home Package
- Site Preparation and Foundation
- Framing Costs and Paint/Stain
- Drywall and Insulation
- Electrical/Plumbing/Heating
- Interior Finishing
- Landscaping
