Once we have an agreed design, and a comfortable estimate for the price of your home, the next step is to sign a second contract with you for the engineering, detailing, and specification phase of the project. At this point we require a second payment of $35,000 to $75,000, depending on the size and complexity of the build. This allows us to draw up the architectural details and interior and exterior elevations of the home, finalize the design of the kitchen, the bathrooms, and the mechanical and electrical systems, and put together an engineering package. We will also begin exploring options for the local contractor part of your build, and begin vetting them and checking their references.
During this phase you will come visit us at our Cleveland showroom to discuss and decide on your specifications. This is an incredibly exciting stage, when evoDOMUS will assist you in making the many important decisions that will personalize your new home. Wall colors, floor coverings such as hardwoods or stone floors, tiles, bathroom fixtures and appliances, your heating and a/c system, built-in furniture, even door handles and electrical are chosen at this time. Once your choices are made, your sales price will be adjusted to include any changes or upgrades selected during the final specification process.
With all decisions made we can then finalize the engineering documents and construction drawings and pull in bids from local contractors for the portion of the work that must be done in the field.
