At Studio Rios Architecture, the conversation starts long before an initial consultation.
Thanks to emails and Zoom meetings we can answer questions about your project months or even years ahead before you plan to start. This approach helps both parties in filtering out essential information. Assessing realistic goals, budgets and timelines are essential for implementing successful strategies.
The cost of conventional wood frame residential construction in Southern New England on average is about $300 - $350 per square foot. If someone else tells you differently, beware of their motives. Something was left out of contract and you will pay. Many will promise you the moon and the stars to get your job, I can only promise you to be direct and protect your interest.
Construction takes a great deal of time.
What is your well defined budget?
What is your realistic timeline?
What is your wish list?
If you can answer these crucial questions, call me.
Otherwise, you are not ready. Your money, your home.
An architect is trained to be a problem solver.
A contractor is trained to execute.
Two different disciplines one final solution.
