We all dream of that ideal timber frame home that is perfectly suited to our needs and wants, but does that dream align with our wallets? Like everything else in life, cost is a crucial consideration on the road to your custom wood home. The best way to ensure that your design, lifestyle, and budget are all in sync throughout the process is to establish a realistic turnkey budget before you begin.
The term ‘turnkey’ originates from the act of a homeowner “turning the key” in the front door and walking into their finished home. Turnkey cost typically refers to the total cost of building a timber frame home, without the inclusion of land or site improvements. In the terms of building, if a builder claims they will provide turnkey construction, it means they will build the entire home.
How Does Design Affect Turnkey?
The most important factors that influence a turnkey budget are a home’s square footage, its complexity, the level of finishes, and its location.
How Riverbend Determines Turnkey
Here at Riverbend, we use our 30+ years of experience in design and attention to detail to ensure that we are creating a timber home concept that fits within a turnkey budget. While many companies will give a client a general kit price, we will pay attention to your entire turnkey budget throughout the design process. As you suggest or make changes to the layout, size or style of your plan, we relay the impacts to the overall cost to build. By doing this, we design your home to better stay in line with the turnkey budget you had in mind.
Turnkey is a tool that gives the client not just an accurate estimate of their costs throughout the conceptual design phase, but also the confidence to move forward with financial security to create the home they’ve been dreaming of. Visit Riverbend’s Cost Feasibility page to learn more.
