“Budget Creep” is the gradual, sometimes unnoticeable increase in the cost of your construction project as new items are added or unforeseen site conditions are revealed. Budget creep happens slowly, one decision at a time, creeping up and devouring your building budget before you know it.
To keep budget creep under control start with a clear scope of work, and provide detailed drawings. Hiring a qualified designer may seem like an extra cost at the beginning, but it can save a lot of money and frustration in the end.
Drawings which do not provide clear details and information make it difficult for contractors to prepare an accurate budget and can lead to a misunderstanding of the final details. Before the construction begins collect photos of the things you like from magazines, HOUZZ or Pinterest.
This will help make the construction process more enjoyable and give you a better result.
