If you’re planning to build and have architectural plans, bring them in. We’ll be happy to do a consultation for all the lumber, building materials, windows & doors, and decking that you might need. We send the plans out to a professional take-off company where they read the plans and accurately tell us what you need. This is a pay service and the cost is applied toward your purchase should you go with our quote.
