change it to their taste or lifestyle. However making that thought apparent

value and how these ideas may actually reduce your prospects of market in
weight to the costs of remodeling.
The role of Turner Builders is to take the ideas and present them to the
client...after factoring codes, structural issues and cost value of work
performed for any particular phase...or the entire project in weight to the
overall value of the property and project. In essence, the drawings should
represent both the existing structure with a compared drawing for the new
work to be able to obtain what the client needs the most.....a realistic
bid. The remodeling contractor is entitled to make their living and company
profit. However without a set of drawings that represents your interests,
it is impossible to expect remodeling firms to give more than a rule of
thumb estimate with a huge "contingency" percentage for unknowns.
Contracts for Construction are always in writing. The same should apply
to the drawings that you have that represent your ideas as an exhibit to the
Contracts for Construction. The drawings allow the sincere remodeling
contractor to make a reasonable living without having to bump up your
estimate to cover any unknowns. Turner Builders can be your "In House"
design team in lieu of the remodeling contractor's "In House" designer on
