 As per our conversations to date, the scope of redesign shall include:

  1. Start with 2023 Spring; reduce square footage; place on top of an oversized two car garage

  6. Project will require both a topographical survey and a geotechnical report 
  7. Client to choose interior and exterior finishes from Built Prefab standards

Deliverables for this phase shall include a Smartsheet where all of the information will be stored and any site or code requirements will be incorporated into the building plans.


Built Prefab will contact the customer to schedule a time for the customer to meet with a Built Prefab representative either on the telephone, online or in person, to begin the customer’s design.
