HOW WILL WE KNOW WHERE WE ARE IN TOTAL COST DURING THE BUILD?
Frisby Enterprises will prepare regular reports that will detail accumulated and projected costs and compare those costs to the agreed on budget for your project.
WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE BUILDERS FEE?
Simply stated, the builder's fee is a summation of the fee to design, specify and construct your home. That fee represents the GROSS profit that pays the builder for the support team and administration required to staff an office, receive and pay invoices, provide cost reporting to you and do daily inspections of your project. Following the completion of you home when all administrative and personnel costs are accounted for the balance of the builder's fee is what is considered reasonable NET profit.
WHO OVERSEES THE CONSTRUCTION?
Your construction will be overseen by either, owner, Ken Frisby or Senior Project Manager, Austin Frisby. Ken will be critically involved in helping develop the specifications and features in your home. Once construction begins, Ken or Austin will still be on site to overseen the project. Some day to day management, "trade-to-trade" transitions and inspections may be handled by one of our experienced project managers, who will review the construction progress and scheduling regularly with Ken. Ultimately, your project will be under the direct management of Ken Frisby.
DO YOU HAVE ANY HOUSES THAT YOU HAVE BUILT IN THE SAME SIZE/PRICE RANGE THAT WE COULD SEE?
