How much per square foot will my home cost?
This is a simple question that is asked with good intentions, yet creates a constant state of confusion about the real cost of building. The truthful answer is, it depends on you and the choices you make.

Can you build from my floor plan?
Yes, but floor plans are not created equally. There is a level of completeness in specification and detail that is required to develop a realistic budget and accurately translate your desires to the craftsmen that actually build your home. Bidding an incomplete floor plan with no written specifications leaves the choice of methods and materials open to wide interpretation, with the contractor usually selecting what suits him best, not you.

What about warranty?
All work covered by the contract is guaranteed by Sam Bradley Homes for one year following substantial completion of the project (except manufactured items not covered by the manufacturer). Product and equipment warranties received by the builder are fully transferred to the customer. All work shall be performed in accordance with the “Residential Construction Performance Guidelines” which are published by the National Association of Home Builders.

What happens at our initial meeting?
The purpose of our initial meeting is to define your needs, determine the scope of work to be done and determine if we are a good “fit” for each other. This meeting is at no cost or obligation to you. Be prepared to list your needs in order of priority. In the case of a remodeling project, tell us what you like about your home, what you want to improve, and your style preferences. Don’t be afraid to show us your notebook of sketches and magazine clippings. We will also need to discuss budget and schedule.

Where do you work?
We are not committed into any specific subdivision. Most of the homes we have built have been on larger suburban lots or acreage. Our projects are typically within Greene, Christian, and Webster counties.

What are allowances?
Allowances are budget amounts for items you have not selected prior to the budget process or entering into the contract to build your project.
