How much will my Design-Build remodel Cost?

If you’re considering a design-build remodel for your home in Orange County, California, one of the top questions on your mind is probably, “How much will it cost?” Of course, the specific cost of any remodel project can vary greatly depending on factors like size, scope, level of customization and changes along the way, among other variables.

That said, we can look at Remodeling’s new Cost vs. Value guide to get a sense for average costs in our region. Here are some typical price ranges for a few different types of common home remodel projects in the region, as well as national averages, according to the guide:

  • Bath Remodel: $23,242 – $71,710 (National Averages are $20,420 – $ 64,743)
  • Minor Kitchen Remodel: $24,842 (National Average is $22,507)
  • Major Kitchen Remodel: $71,880 – $142,184 (National Averages are $66,196 – $131,510)
  • Master Suite Addition: $149,642 – $307,277 (National Averages are $130,986 – $271,470)

As you can see, even the hard data shows a pretty wide range of prices, so it’s tough to know just how much your specific project will cost. The good news is, with the design-build approach, the total cost—as well as the likelihood of out-of-budget pop-ups or unforeseen costs—is usually much less than the system of two separate phases and contracts (i.e., first design, and then build vs. design-build). In fact, a recent design-build study shows that design-build projects are delivered faster and with greater reliability in cost and schedule performance than other project delivery systems (despite common misconceptions).
