Professional Services

Home Design

David Elfring, Architect, can offer the custom home client full architectural services with a specialty in rural, mountain and large acreage sites. Services can begin with advice on site selection. The architect will then provide design sketches, construction drawings and specifications. He will assist in bidding and selecting a quality contractor, and will see the project through the process of construction.

Fees will be determined and fixed prior to starting the design. They are based on the size and complexity of the building. Architectural fees and expenses will add from 3% to 5% to hard construction costs of your new home, depending upon size and complexity.
