Cost of blue prints
We are in the process of house drawings. The first visit to the drawing guy quoted us $3056. I asked him does this include everything? We aren't going to have to pay more later for every little thing. He said no. So, we paid him a $350 deposit and he started on our plans. So, today I get an email that we need to pay 40% of the cost before he can proceed to the final drawings. Ok, this is fine with us but we were in there a couple of days ago and he could of told us then. Anyway, the total cost is now $3300. I emailed and asked why because he told us $3056. He said because of the preliminary cost that he quoted us. He never quoted anything other than the $3056. He also said let me know if this is going to be a problem. Well, yet its a problem because its not what he quoted! But, we don't want to make him mad because it seems like its taking forever as it is. I'm really just not that happen with him. We have told him several things we wanted and then he sends us a drawing and its not what we talked about. This has happened a couple of times. So aggravating! The builder sent us to him because it is who he uses. I am going to let the builder know how unhappy we have been with him.
Just wondering what drawing cost averages are? Thanks so much!
