Spend a Little to Save a Lot

In this Choice Article, Ingrid and William spent $28,000 on a custom home design they could not afford to build. They are not alone. Every day people spend $1,000's, in a futile effort to find their dream that ends up being too expensive to build. Even project home builders often use untrained salespeople to prepare sales estimates that are way under-priced. You will pay for their mistakes; in Time, Money and Effort

Many custom home designs never get built because most Architects and home designers don't spend their time pricing the costs of homes to build.

How it works...

  • Step 1

    We have a introductory meeting to understand the basic criteria and outline of your requirements, including budget, so we can produce a sketch design that ticks all the boxes.

  • Step 2

    We prepare a preliminary sketch that can be fine-tuned so it is exactly what you are looking for

  • Step 3

    We prepare an estimate of build costs so you can understand the elemental cost implications. This is the base we need to properly cost-plan and manage the  design process properly, and help you select a builder that can deliver.

Why Building Buddy?

It is an unfortunate reality that many Architects and Building Designers are not able to properly control the building costs of the homes they are designing because they believe it is secondary to your, and their aspirations. As a result, they are not able to properly synchronize the design with the budget.

At Building Buddy, our core business is custom home design & build . Getting the home built to budget is our focus. We maintain an up-to-date database of building costs. Our platform is designed to be an integrated process that informs the project from concept to completion.

We work closely with builders to overcome the high incidence of construction costs blowouts because of poor design choices.
