How to Save Money When Building Your Dream Home

Working with an architect to design a custom home is an exciting opportunity to watch your dream home transform from concept to reality. It enables you to make important decisions throughout the process so that your home is designed to your exact specifications.

Unfortunately, this can be a daunting task if it’s your first design/build project. At Pearce Scott Architects, we have the depth of experience to keep your project on track so that you will be happy not only with the structure and aesthetic of your home, but also meet your expectations on the overall project budget.

Financial Grounding

It is important to set a feasible budget aligned with your overall vision, the home’s location, and current building cost. We can guide you in designing a home to meet these goals and ensure the features you can’t live without are included.

We can guide you in good discernment, recommending the best use of space, floor plan, building construction and materials.  Our team has worked with hundreds of clients and dozens of builders, so we understand how to deliver design within a budget.


We have also cultivated solid relationships with a professional network of local contractors and suppliers. When it comes to selection, we will help you save where you can and spend where it matters. This lowland country is home to us too, and we want to help build a community of satisfied neighbors.

We offer a fresh approach to home design and building that is grounded in decades of experience. We start by listening to your goals, your vision, and your budget. And our client-focused team continues to listen as the plans for your home take shape, through to the end of the project.
