The Engineering Deposit is applicable to houses and large additions. Small additions and commercial structures skip this step.
The Engineering Deposit
The Engineering Deposit is 5% of the estimated package price and is applied in full toward the material package price. At this stage, Habitat Post & Beam will continue any preliminary plan revisions. Upon approval of preliminary plans (signed and approved by you for no further changes), we will proceed with foundation and cross-section plans typically needed for building permits. A set of these plans with an engineer's stamp will be provided if required. Once the foundation and cross sections have been started, changes to the framing system are strongly discouraged. The buyer is guaranteed against any price increases assuming a signed Contract is completed within 60 days of the Engineering Deposit receipt.
