4. How does Haven charge for Construction Services?

Let’s meet and talk about the scope of your project.  Then, we will determine a price for your project on a case by case basis.  For smaller projects, we usually present you with a flat fee.  For larger construction projects, we work on a “cost plus” basis.


In layman’s terms, this means that you pay the cost of the materials and any subcontractor labor, plus a percentage of the overall material cost as the contractor/

builder’s fee. In this scenario, payments are made to the builder/ contractor in draws

throughout the project.

3. How does Haven charge for Interior Design Services?
