Design Build


North Country Builders of Alaska is a Design-Build company. We take your project from concept to completion and this saves you both time and money. We design your project AND we build it. There is no middle-man.


When you first contact North Country Builders, we will speak to you at some length about the specific details regarding your project. If you decide that we may be the right contractor for you, we will then schedule an appointment.


We will discuss your project needs and assess any construction issues related to your project at our first meeting. A general scope of work will be developed with as many specifics as you are prepared to offer. We will take time to discuss general building or remodeling costs and your thoughts on the budget for your project.


After the initial meeting, we will meet with you again to discuss the concept ideas; any specific needs or desires you have; product selections you have made; and your project budget. This budget is based upon similar projects completed, square foot costs and other factors. This meeting is to make sure your budget expectations are realistic in today’s building & remodeling market.


Stage 1 (Design Agreement)
The Design agreement allows you and the North Country Builders team to complete all the plans and drawings needed for accurate job pricing, planning and construction.

Stage 2 (Construction Agreement)
Following the design preparation, you will be asked to sign the construction agreement which is your commitment to us that you are serious about constructing the project. We will then set a start date, revise the plans if needed, add final details and be available to assist you with product selections and finalize the construction budget. Once you have approved the plans and specifications, we will begin working on a start date, order long lead items, plan reviews, energy ratings, and obtain the MSB Land Use Permit.
