SAMPLE PROPOSAL
___________________________
___________________________
Berg Mountain Homes feels that it is very important to listen carefully to a customer’s
wishes. At our initial meeting, we discussed many of your goals and wishes for your
future home. The goal of this proposal is to translate those wishes into a working
document that will accurately translate those wishes into working specifications.
This proposal is meant to be a working document. Note that at the end of each section,
there may be a series of comments or questions for you in red. Please respond or add
your own questions and comments in blue.
Your project won’t go to pricing until the specifications are pretty much finalized.
Specifications that will be determined later will be noted as such, but these are usually
items that won’t affect pricing.
Accuracy and detail in this proposal is important for several reasons:
1. Uncertainty causes pricing risk for the builder and that risk is mitigated with
cushion or padding in the price. Accuracy and detail eliminate this risk and
effectively lowers the price of the home.
2. There are a vast number of details that eventually have to be gathered in order to
get your home exactly right. While not all the details included below are
important for pricing, it makes sense to gather as much of the details as possible at
this time as it saves work later. It will also make for a smoother, faster and more
worry free construction phase.
3. It helps eliminate the potential for surprises due to a difference in assumptions
between the builder and the customer. If specifications are very detailed, it is rare
that we will come across an issue during construction where we disagree as to the
intent (and therefore the price). In short, it holds both the builder (and the
customer) accountable for what’s in this document.
4. Lastly, if you are getting other bids for this job, this detail will help you evaluate
the bids. For obvious reasons, it’s important for comparison purposes that each
bid contain the same scope of work. Since Berg Mountain Homes has spent a lot
of time developing this document, we do ask that you not share it with the other
bidders.

Proposal
Of course, we understand that not everything can be decided at this time. Often, the
decision for a certain feature will be based on price which is an unknown initially. So we
offer the opportunity for you to have options available. We’ll be glad to price something
several ways and allow you to make the decision at a later date. With respect to this
document, we will initially specify a feature a certain way and provide an overall price
making that assumption, but at the end of each section we’ll add other options for that
feature along with how that option will change the overall price. These options are
usually customer initiated, but occasionally we will add an option on our own initiative if
we think it might make sense and be of interest to the customer. If during the draft phase
of this proposal, you do make a decision on an option just let us know and we’ll modify
the specifications and pricing accordingly.
Additionally, allowances will be used in other areas where a final decision can not be
reached. Of course, you will have typical allowances such as plumbing fixtures, lighting
fixtures, flooring, etc. But in some cases, we may provide allowances for other
construction items such as decking or masonry if we can’t be sure of the scope of that
item. Sometimes allowances will be in whole dollars and when it makes sense, they may
be based on measurements such as square or linear footage. Berg Mountain Homes tries
to make sure that allowances are healthy as we don’t want you to experience surprises in
the form of overages with respect to these allowances. Whenever possible, you should
attempt to validate the amounts of the allowances provided by doing a little bit of
shopping to see if what we provided seems to be reasonable for your tastes and wishes.
OK, enough talk, let’s get started…

______ proposal
When this document is finalized (and you hopefully choose Berg Mountain
Homes as your builder), this document will be incorporated by reference
into the final Construction Agreement.
Unless amended in writing, please note that any specification made in this
proposal will supersede any blueprints, drawings, plans or verbal
discussions.
Construction materials and methods may vary from the blueprints or from
the construction notes provided in the blueprints; but at all times state
Residential Building Codes will be met or exceeded
Throughout this document, elevations (views from the side rather than
overhead) are given with the view side of the home being the rear elevation,
the opposite side being the front elevation (the street side) and then the left
and right elevations being from a front elevation perspective. All
dimensions are in format width x depth with a front elevation perspective.
To facilitate the eventual creation of work orders for the sub-contractors,
this document is organized generally by trade contractor and loosely follows
the home building construction schedule (that’s why it starts with sitework,
excavation and concrete).

Proposal
Insurance – Berg Mountain Homes carries both general liability and workers
compensation insurance. If one of our sub-contractors is uninsured for either general
liability or workers compensation, Berg Mountain Homes will provide that insurance
on behalf of the uninsured subcontractor. However, this insurance does not replace
the Customer’s need for their own coverage. We recommend that you check with
your insurance agent to make sure you are aware of your options.
Changes – Any Change Order that results in additional project costs and whose cost is
not otherwise specified in this proposal will be billed to Customer at actual cost plus
15%. Excluded from this 15% charge are any overages on material allowance items
such as lighting fixtures, plumbing fixtures, etc.
Change Order Administrative Fees – The first twenty (20) changes are included in the
price of the home below. After the first twenty (20) changes, each additional Change
Order will result in a $50 administrative fee.
Copies of Berg Mountain Homes documents (including the Construction Agreement
and Warranty) can be found on the Berg Mountain Home web site.
Proposal
Berg Mountain Homes proposes to build the home described above for an all
inclusive price of $________. This price includes all Berg Mountain Home fees including design, project management, accounting, reporting, construction
scheduling, supervision, and quality assurance.
The only changes to the price you will pay for your home could be as follows:
1. Changes made to the project scope subsequent to the signing of this
document.
2. Differences between the Allowances outlined above and the actual price of
those items.
The next step in the building process is to agree to this proposal (including any
changes we’ve noted during our discussion of this document) and subsequently to
sign the Construction Agreement (which references this document as an attachment).
