Do you offer free estimates?

Yes. A Green Habitat Contractor will visit your project site and provide an estimate of possible project pricing.

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

Upon initial contact with a customer, Green Habitat determines the scope of the project requested and schedules a FREE project site visit. The initial project site visit will involve consulting with the customer to obtain project specifics, inspect the project area, take measurements and pictures for future use when calculating potential project cost. Green Habitat then explains the project proposal process. Green Habitat's project proposals consist of a Site Visit, Consultation, Measurements, Report, Scope of work, Diagrams and Line Items. Green Habitat's Project Proposal is calculated based upon current labor cost, current material cost and Green Habitat project cost. The project proposal is delivered via email to the customer within 7 - 10 business days following the site visit. After customers receive the project proposal, Green Habitat representatives are available to answer any and all questions regarding the project.

The cost to obtain a fully refundable Green Habitat Project Proposal is as follows:
* $89.00 - Project Estimates below $30,000.00
* $129.00 - Project Estimates between $31,000.00 - $99,000.00
* $170.00 - Project Estimates above $100,000.00

Selection of Green Habitat as General Contractor/Builder for the project generates a Green Habitat Construction Agreement which outlines all aspects of the project and party requirements. This agreement is provided to the customer for review and endorsement. Additionally, the cost for the customer's Green Habitat Project Proposal is credited back to the customer's final project cost. Resulting in a reduction in customer project cost.

Construction of a Detached Apartment Garage - Accessory Dwelling Unit (A.D.U.).
This project was constructed for a Disabled War Veteran.
When Green Habitat was asked to act as Builder for this project, we were very busy with other projects. However, when it was explained that the project was being constructed for a "young" disabled Veteran, we could not say no as a Veteran owned Company. The Disabled Veteran the project was for, required a level of special care and supervision which was being provided at the family's current home. As such, the Disabled Veteran's parents wanted to afford the veteran a level of independence and privacy as an adult, while still able to provide the care and supervision needed. It was determined this could be achieved by constructing a detached living space (A.D.U.) on the existing homes land. The detached space, in the form of a Detached Garage Apartment with 2 Bedrooms, 2 and 1/2 Bathrooms, Kitchen, Living Room, and Game Room was constructed. The project was the equivalent of building a small house (A.D.U.) next to the primary residence. We are very proud of this project which was constructed during the COVID Pandemic of 20/21.
