Why is a budget important?
 Many people have no idea how much to budget for a building project, or how much things cost to build. Establishing a budget is very important. The last thing you want is to have plans drawn, and then find out they are way too expensive to construct! Contact us now for help developing a realistic budget that will achieve your objectives.

Need an estimate?

An estimate is a ball park figure that we can develop to let you know roughly what it would cost to build something you have in mind, or you have plans for.

If you have an idea for a project, we are happy to get together with you and help you clarify your vision and develop a wish list. We can give you an estimate so you can see if your project will be affordable for you. Costing out your wish list could be the first step in the design/build process.

It’s risky to choose a contractor based on an estimate alone. Going with the lowest bid may cost you more in the long run. Before making a decision about awarding a job based on an estimate, consider the experience and reputation of the general contractor and check out some references. We will be happy to provide you with a list of references of satisfied customers.

Contact us about an estimate.

Need a bid?

A bid is a fixed price to complete a specific project based on a complete set of plans and specifications developed by an architect or by Landry Unlimited.

If you have a complete set of plans, please contact us or have your architect contact us and we will develop a detailed bid and construction schedule.

The bid typically takes 2 – 4 weeks to develop.
