FAQ

What does a set of drawings cost?

The cost can vary from project to project.  It will depend on the complexity of the building structure and the size of the project.  It can also depend on what your municipality requires for a building permit.  You will be provided with a free quote before starting the drawings.

Do I need to have a plan or a property first?

Usually, it helps to have the property chosen first.  The property may dictate the location of your driveway and entry.  You may also want to maximize your views from certain rooms.  The slope of the property may allow for a walkout basement.

Do you apply for the permit for me?

Yes, we can apply for the building permit for you.

What is a BCIN number and do you have one?

It is a Building Code Identification Number.  The Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing requires a designer to have a BCIN number, to produce drawings for a building permit.  I have my BCIN and am fully insured.

How long does it take to get a set of drawings?

It will depend on the design process and the number of revisions.  The length of the design process can vary depending on how much information you provide me.  For example, if you already have a plan or photos of homes you like.

Do I have to have a builder before I start the design process?

No, you can acquire a builder at anytime before, during or after the process.
