Frequently Asked Questions

How much does your average home cost?

That primarily depends on the location and the plans. But if you are looking for an average, it’s about $150 per square foot.

What’s included in your prices?

I usually do turnkey projects, which means it includes everything: permits, grading, septic or cesspool, foundation, framing, plumbing and electric, sheetrock/drywall, windows, trim, cabinets, floor covering, roof, painting, appliances, light fixtures, etc. I have done numerous package or kit homes which also include everything as above.

Can your Hawaii home builders help us design the home that I want?

Absolutely! I have several draftsmen and architects that I use regularly

How do you feel about changes during construction?

I always try to accommodate our customers and I usually don’t charge – or I’ll try to keep the cost down as long as it’s a reasonable request.

Are you able to help me get financing?

Yes, I’ve been working with one particular company and I’ve had a great success rate. Ask us about it.

What is your time frame to build a three-bedroom, two-bath home?

An average home this size these days – about 1,500 square feet plus a 400-foot-square garage – would probably take 7-9 months from start to finish.

Are there any warranties?

Yes, I offer a one year guarantee on all materials and workmanship.

Are you able to help me build a “green” home?

Through an outside consultant – Woodbury Green Building Consultation – I am able to offer my customers Energy Star for Home Certification and Energy Modeling Services. These include specifically:
• Project registration with U.S. Green Building Council
• Design Facilitation
• Plan Reviewing and preliminary ratings
• Project and documentation management
• HERS testing and energy verification
• Green Building support and consultation
• LEED for homes certification

Are you able to do photovoltaic systems?

Yes, I have a licensed electrician on our team. In his own home, he says he pays no electric cost, except a small service charge.
