What Goes Into a Good Design?

By Brent Moore

Q: I have a tight budget. Can an MHR project design provide a cost estimate?—Darlene C., Rocky River

A: At Moore Home Remodeling, we’re all about what works best for our clients. Part of that includes careful planning for any project and a solid design. In fact, it is a crucial part of the entire project.

It is always our goal to provide our clients with as much control over their investments as possible, something that’s difficult to do if you don’t have a good understanding of the costs associated with your project and how the design plays a role in that.

For a remodeling project, we create a proposal, based on the design/layout that has allowances for finish items or, whenever possible, we assist our clients in making those finish item selections for even more accurate estimating. We hate surprises as much as our homeowners do and try to avoid them whenever possible.

For larger projects that require blueprints, we have a two-phase process that helps to minimize your investment. Phase one includes drawings and accurate estimating. During phase two, much more is required by the city you live in for construction. That’s where the documents come in. We don’t believe you should have to pay for documents you may not submit while you’re still exploring your design.

Before you commit to any project with a design/build firm, there are important questions to ask that will determine the cost of your design:

• Can the city use the design for approval?
• Can you get accurate material costs from it?
• Will it fit your space without further cost for customization?
• Who does the design belong to after it’s created?
• Does it meet all of your design goals?

A great number of man-hours go into a design with MHR. All remodeling work is completely custom and we never put your name on another client’s project design. To find out how we can create a customized plan that will meet your needs, give us a call and we’ll go over the process with you in greater detail.
