CUSTOM CARPENTRY PROJECTS

GETTING STARTED

How exactly do you bid a job?

  We bid work either on a Fixed Price basis or on a Time and Materials basis.  In a Fixed Price situation, we bid off a well-defined set of plans and/or job specifications.  These jobs have a start price and an agreed upon payment schedule and any changes are executed via change order while the work is underway.  In a Time and Materials (T&M) situation, we quote you our Labor Rates per hour, and all other job costs are charged to you at our cost plus a markup.  We usually work under a T&M arrangement if the plans must evolve as the work continues or if the scope of work is impossible to determine at the time of the bid.  

Do I need plans to get an estimate?

That depends on the nature of the work.  For smaller scale carpentry work you may not need plans.  However, it is very helpful if you know what you want. Links to websites, clippings from a magazine, or an address in town with the front entry you just love will all help us understand what you want done.

Do I need to hire an architect or professional designer?

Again, the answer depends on the magnitude of the job.  We generate our own plans for smaller projects. For bigger jobs, we usually do a rough estimate, and then suggest that you get plans drawn up if your budget is realistic.

Can I hire my own architect or designer?

Absolutely. We can work with a professional of your choice or can suggest one from our list of reliable partners.  We do like to be involved early in the design process to help lend some reality to the budgeting process. We have seen some magnificent plans never get built because all the bids exceeded the budget.  This unfortunate event can usually be avoided if the builder is part of the design process.

Who will be in charge of my project? How will I communicate questions or concerns?

Your project will be assigned to one of our Lead Carpenters, who will serve as project manager, and will be on site daily.  The Lead Carpenter will be your point person throughout the construction process, and will be available to you through several means – on site, by phone call, text or email.  In addition, you are encouraged to contact Glenn directly at any point in the project.

Do I need to be home while work is going on?

Not at all. You can feel confident leaving your home in our care when you head off to work.  The Millwork team and our sub-contractors take pride in the respect we show for your home, property and neighborhood.  Early morning or evening meetings, phone calls, text messages and emails are used to keep everyone on the same page.
