Cost Consulting

One of the biggest issues we have found over the years is that design often doesn’t align with budget. This is most likely because the individual designing the project, hasn’t ever had to be a part of the actual construction process, or hasn’t collaborated with the company building the project, and this disconnect usually leads to design not meeting budget. This is where Indie Living sets itself apart from the rest. At Indie Living we combine the services of a custom home designer, builder, and cost consultant so the design and building phases can be planned right from the start. We work with you from the start to formulate a plan to achieve maximum value for money while achieving a unique custom designed home that will suit your specific needs and situation. Your decision to build your new home should be a decision based on best value not the best price.

The Indie Living team has a unique set of benefits – the builder is involved from the very start offering advice and suggestions on practical ways to keep costs down and resolve any construction details and potential issues. We use this information to collaborate with you as the client, the design team and our cost consultant to ensure your design meets your budget. The team at Indie Living have been building homes for a combined 40 years and believe this experience and knowledge allows us the ability to offer a fixed price at the design stage and the peace of mind knowing Indie Living remains accountable from the initial concept, to the day you receive the keys to your new home.
