What Your Contractor Wants You to Know: A Pre-Construction Checklist

Planning a large addition or luxury home remodel? Being prepared can help the process move more quickly, efficiently and help keep things on budget. Here’s a checklist of what to gather and get ready ahead of time.

  • Your most recent survey & elevation certificate

    This gives your general contractor an overview of your lot, public easements, property boundaries, elevation issues, etc.  

  • Any existing plans

    Blueprints or design plans for this or any prior projects help paint a more complete picture for your residential construction team.

  • Septic & utility Info

    Before we can safely start we need to know where your septic system and utilities are, and if you have any information or concerns about these systems to share.

  • Design ideas & inspiration

    Do you have a Pinterest board full of kitchen ideas? We want to see it! Our goal is to check all the boxes we can as we move forward with the Plan-Build process.

  • Related materials  

    Have you requested bids from other contractors? Estimates from online tools? Sharing this information helps get your expectations and questions out in the open.

  • Sketches, drawings & doodles

    Even if it’s a stick-figure rendition on a cocktail napkin, share whatever pieces of your vision you have articulated.

If you’re organized enough to put it all together in a binder, portfolio or folder – that will make keeping track of all the new documents even easier. Our goal is to help bring your best ideas to life, and enhance your renovation or remodeling vision through offering our expertise.
