Initial design consultations and site work defined the location of existing house plumbing, air ducts and framing in the kitchen wall that was desired to be removed. Detailed existing plans were prepared to assure that utilities could be relocated. Permit drawings were prepared for the Client’s use. During construction, Construction Management consulting was provided with the Client acting as general contractor.

Design plans & elevations for use as permit drawings ($619); working along with Client on framing, electrical and plumbing relocation, drywall, cabinet and trim installation ($6203).

Total services + construction materials = $7104.
The Client supplied appliances, cabinets and lights, electrical and plumbing installation
