Products

Specifications and Selections

A custom home requires blueprints and the specifications and selections for initial pricing.
Specifications are the products that will be used to build your custom home and how those products are installed. Items such as floor systems, wall framing, windows, insulation, roofing, foundations are good examples of specifications.
Selections are the products that our clients select at the beginning of the project. Selections often change during construction. However, we like to start with set selections.

Contracts

Fixed Price vs Time/Material

Sullivan Homes PNW offers either a fixed price (FP) contract or a time and material (T/M) contract for custom homes.
The fixed price is based on a set of specifications and selections incorporated in the price. The benefit is that the client knows exactly how much the home will cost. The downside is that the pricing is typically higher then a T/M contract as the builder must anticipate cost increases for a year from providing the price.
The time and material charge is 15% and is based on all cost on a monthly basis. The benefit is the T/M, with restraint, will cost less than a FP contract. The downside is that the client should be structured in their changes during construction. Multiple changes adds cost and time to the construction process. Large and complex homes will likely be a T/M contract.
