What will my project cost?
When considering a renovation project, this is one of the first questions homeowners ask
As with every rule of thumb, there are always exceptions at either end of the ranges. However, we believe these numbers should help inform your budget expectations when you hire Landis for a well-designed, well-appointed, and well-built construction project.

The below costs are additive (i.e. for a one story addition that includes kitchen work, add the two budget ranges) and combining projects will typically incur cost savings. Projects can also be designed to be completed in phases.

These prices anticipate that the project is in an older home and assumes it has aging plumbing and electrical systems, settlement, mud-set floors, and requires lead renovation. Projects in newer homes will be at the lower end of the range. Painting and appliances are not included in chart below.

Our minimum design fee is $4,000, and we typically don’t construct projects under $50,000 (unless you are a returning client). If you have a project which may not fit in any of the project types below, please give us a call to let us help you better understand your budgeting situation.
