As an experienced design-build firm one valuable service we offer is to help our clients determine if their budget supports building their dream home in Teton Valley or Jackson Hole. 

The first step in that process is what we call the “feasibility study.”  It’s a simple one-page spreadsheet that separates pre-construction costs (design, engineering and permitting) from infrastructure costs (land, driveway, well, septic system, utilities, etc.) and construction costs.  Check out the spreadsheet below (with sample values included for a recent project in Driggs, ID).

If the feasibility study puts your dream home in line with your desired budget the next steps are to get much more specific about the design, project schedule, material specifications, structural and HVAC systems and prepare a detailed whole-house estimate for the project.  From there, please contact us to schedule an Alignment & Discovery Meeting to see if we're the right builder for your vision.
