Bidding, Budgeting

Upfront Budget Review



Hensley Homes is known for exceptionally detailed specifications and budgets. Once we’ve developed the bid set of drawings, we”ll develop specifications for the project – a description of the finishing of the home that is not yet included on the drawings. Then we compile the drawings and the specifications to solicit competitive bids for every aspect of your project.

With preliminary bids returned from contractors, our clients have an early look at real pricing and can go forward confident about the cost of the project. At this stage of the process, we can make changes to the design without significant expense.

Once we’ve refined the preliminary budget, the architect or designer will begin developing working drawings.   This stage of design typically takes one to two months, depending on the size and design of the home. While this final design work is being done, we focus on interior design and materials selections.

Once the working drawings are complete, and your selections have been finalized, we repeat the budgeting process. The final budget is based upon your final plans and selections. Our final budget is largely composed of firm bids – all from competitive bidders.

Hensley Homes is known for our comprehensive budgeting and accuracy. Our competitive process delivers a lower cost per square foot than our competitors and can save thousands of dollars for our clients.
