Custom Home Building Proposal

Jane and Sam Larkin PO Box Everett WA 98201 1023 Dear Jane and Sam Thank you for taking the time to meet with representative from Watson Custom Homes. Based on the information he shared with me think our business would be perfect fit for your needs. We've been building custom homes in Snohomish County since receiving multiple awards. The quality of our work is well known. We don't just build homes we build dreams. And that's our goal for you if you choose to work with us. We understand that you have already done your site evaluations and are on your way to obtaining building permit for your property. We would like to point out that permit requirements are stringent in Snohomish County and we would like to help coordinate with you so that you can obtain the necessary permits without delays. Based on the copy of the blueprints you provided have drawn up some documents for you including preliminary cost summary statement of the work we intend to perform if you hire us and timeline. Please do be aware however that building materials prices fluctuate rapidly and often so we cannot guarantee final costs until the materials are purchased. Also in consideration of the fact that you would like to use top grade materials throughout the home the initial building cost estimate comes in at $256.00 per square foot which is higher than the average Snohomish County price per square foot of $192.00 but reflects the quality you have chosen. Please be wary of any estimates that come in at this average price or lower; it simply means that the builders will be using lesser grade materials or taking shortcuts. On final note we will provide you with contracted price after final materials are chosen and before the construction work begins. We believe you should get into your home on budget and on time and we will not surprise you with hidden labor charges. Once we sign the contract the price we have set is what you will pay making it easier for you to obtain the proper financing. Of course if you would like to make changes beyond that point we are happy to provide "change order" which may slightly alter the final price of the home. Please do not hesitate to call with any questions you might have either about our services or about the building process. We would love to help you build your dream home.

Sincerely Alan Watson Owner General Contractor Watson Custom Homes 425.388.9926 office 425.762.4833 cell alan@watsoncustomhomes.com www.watsoncustomhomes.com We understand that building home can be daunting prospect. But set your mind at ease. At Watson Custom Homes we've built hundreds of homes; we know what we're doing. We are your partners and we share the same goalto give you the home of your dreams.

During your home construction project you can expect the following from us. A Consistent Schedule There's nothing more annoying than waiting for crew to show up. Our crew is dedicated to your project and each person will arrive at the scheduled time. Work will stop each day as needed to obey all noise ordinances for your area. Open Communication The construction superintendent assigned to your project will be in constant communication with you the client giving you regular progress reports and consulting with you if any glitches should happen. The construction superintendent will also be in communication with your architect as needed as well as with all inspectors and subcontractors. Proper Identification of Personnel Our employees have all passed thorough background checks. They must wear Watson Custom Homes tee shirts or sweatshirts when on the job and they are required to produce company identification when requested. We insist that our subcontractors also follow these rules. Proper Handling of Construction Site Issues

Let's face it there's no way to build house without some noise and dirt. But we will strive to keep both to minimum. We obey all local noise ordinances. If runoff could be an issue we use appropriate barriers to keep wastewater and mud out of the street and waterways. If dust might be an issue we will spray areas with water to minimize airborne dirt. All hazardous chemicals will be handled according to federal and state regulations and all chemicals will be locked into our storage container each evening. The crew will leave the jobsite as clean and secure as possible when wrapping up work each day. Please be aware that for sanitary purposes we will need to place portable toilet on your worksite but we will strive to place it in an unobtrusive location while keeping it easily reachable for regular cleaning. Employees have been instructed to carpool when possible to keep parking issues at minimum. When parking is restricted onsite we will work to find alternative sites and shuttle employees to the jobsite. Site Development Costs Price Surveying and Grading Septic
