Design costs

In addition to the obvious architect and building permit costs during the design phase, they’re other expenses that quickly add up to something significant…enough to buy a nice car. If you ever plan to build a house you should budget for these…I didn’t do my homework and had some surprises:

  • Soil tests
  • Geotechnical report
  • Surveyor
  • Structural engineer
  • School permit fees (surprisingly expensive)
  • Energy efficiency report
