Initial floorplan preparation will be based on information / sketch / layout you provide. Up to 2 modifications will be made to your initial layout after starting on plans. Substantial changes (as determined by Designer) will require an additional $200 edit fee plus $80 per hour, if plans are already substantially in process. This includes either adding or subtracting square footage. If change produces no significant square footage difference, but are substantial nonetheless, once plans are significantly in process, edits will be at an additional $80 per hour.

Intermediate plan sets will be emailed to client for review in Adobe PDF format at no charge. Alternatively, if client wishes to have intermediate hardcopy (11x17) prints mailed, they will be sent at a cost of $30 per mailing, plus postal fee via USPS  regular mail,.
