We received our permit ready plans form the architect and engineer. In full disclosure, this post is really late. We actually received them back in mid-March. We got updates in June and August. But for purposes of dating the delivery of permit ready plans it should be mid-March. That puts at about 1 year to complete the designs.
The cost of the plans was $7,600 and the cost of engineering was $10,600 for total cost of $18,200 for the design phase.
A few weeks ago, Tom Shaw, our architect, send us a link to a 3D fly-through video of the plans. You can tell from looking at this and reading his words that he loves what he does and he connected with our project. Tom went the extra mile for us and put us in a place to fully understand the scope of the project.
I invite you to take the plans for a spin.
