I have lived in the Covenant for over 40 years and have work with the association.
Sansone Real Estate Group.
folks that blow through the $200/foot mark are doing so with expensive finishes, spendy fixtures, change orders, poor builders that fail inspections (and have to do things over) and by having too many people on the "payroll".
the art jury will have a say in roof materials and other exterior finishes so be ready for that. when my roof company was runnijng hot and heavy, i turned down work there due to their intrusive inspection process so be ready for that to add days and expense.
I have a deep rolodex of north county tradesmen if you want to click through to my page and contact me. i am starting a similar project soon, out of state...we can compare notes.

As always, get several bids and make it clear to the contractors that you're cost-conscious. If you'd like a referral of a great contractor, let me know...I'm happy to help.

Let me know if you need a purchase loan for the property or want to get pre-approved (this will increase the chances of your loan being accepted) because I can certainly help you out there. You can call me at 408-352-5147 or email me at AGreer@themortgageoutlet.com. You can check us out at http://www.TheMortgageOutlet.com. I will look at your situation and present you with some options.
It's very different when your building from scratch or if your remodeling. I have an old friend who saved Big $$ managing his remodel project in the Covenant. It really depends on what you have in mind. I was touring projects in the past with the RSF art jury and got a keen insight at the whole process. It is not as bad as you may have heard. Yes they are strict but the attitude that you bring to the table has a great deal to do with how smooth your process goes. Robert Green is a great guy and they are all about maintaining the integrity of The Ranch. I have been on both sides of the process and relationships matter so be positive your remodel will be fine.
I wish you well on your projectl I would love to see it before and after let me know how it goes and if I can help at all.
