I'll dig out my expense records tonight, it's been a few years lol.
If I did it again I'd probably order the full construction document prints vs. just a design plan with a few key construction details. It's a tough pill to swallow since it can double the cost right at the time you may already be feeling anxious about how much you've spent before anything's physically been done. Not as important the smaller/ simpler the design is. Another benefit to going small. I decided to build a bit bigger for reasons I've probably covered earlier in this or other threads but can re-explain if necessary.
Keep us all posted on permies as your project progresses. There's probably not enough info here (on the forums) on the planning side which is so critically important when spending so much in the forms of resources, time, and money.
Awesome project Scott! If you don't mind me asking, how much was the design/drawings through "Whole Trees Architecture"? I am looking at doing a home soon and like the idea of using roundwood but trying to get an idea of what I have to spend for plans.
