Process

The Lake|Flato Porch House was developed to streamline the design process. A typical completed Porch House will require roughly one year and will cost about $250-$300 per square foot.

The Porch House process begins with a conversation in our office or via conference call to discuss your specific needs, schedule, and budget. We then provide a letter of agreement for developing a concept design with Porch House.

A site analysis will drive the concept design phase. We will determine the rooms, arrangements, and connections that are best for your project. The concept design for a typical Porch House requires 2-3 months and costs $20,000 plus expenses. Cost can grow depending on special requirements. We then provide an estimate of cost and enter into an AIA Owner/Architect agreement before beginning the construction documents.
