Portland Design Build

we love working along side clients to design and create environments that will make your space feel personal  

Take a moment and tell us about your project on the form below and we will get back to you later that same day.

We're excited to make your ideas a reality.

THE PROCESS

  • Phone ConsultationWe’ll initially talk on the phone to get a feel for: Your project scope, budget, and expected timeline | Your site's specific utility, access, and zoning requirements | Your personal expectations regarding the process.                           

  • Site MeetingWe will come to meet you on your future project site so we can document any existing conditions, talk more in-depth about what you have in mind, begin to envision your structure’s needs, and put together a preliminary estimate.           

  • Preliminary EstimateWe build your estimate from a compilation of historical costs that we keep on hand. This is a “rough estimate” figure that we use to guide our process. We will be able tell you the most likely scenario for your all-inclusive total cost based on the information we have at that time.              

  • Design PhaseThis is where the real fun begins! We put together detailed plans and specifications that describe exactly what we are going to be doing and when it is going to happen. In the design phase, we also put together a fixed-price proposal to do your job. You'll know what you're buying and how much it will cost before we start.                                                                       

  • Construction Phase - At this point, we become “pure contractor” and focus on getting your work done in an efficient, timely manner. If any unforeseen issues become apparent (hidden dry rot, water damage, substandard electrical) before we do any additional work, we will bring it to your attention. We also price any additional discretionary work on a fixed-price basis so you never get hit with a surprise bill.
