Will the estimated project budget be the same as my actual total cost of work?

If you’ve already read about how we estimate your project budget (above) you may be interested to know that in many cases, the largest overall contributing expense is actually “change” as in, when the project evolves from where it is initially planned and discussed. Often what is dreamed and planned in our initial meeting is only part of what is actually delivered when all is said and done on a project. We do our best to estimate accurately with the information we are given, and even try to think about unintended consequences of certain changes a project could experience… but realistically speaking, we are not holding a crystal ball with all the answers of what you or another Client may wish to modify or add to a project at any time. And so, we just do our best. We communicate thoroughly, often, and in both verbal and written formats, so everything is very clear. And when things change, we write up change orders to formalize updates to the dream and vision of your project. And we confirm the understanding is proper with your authorized signature, and at times, updates made to the design plan.
