Online Consults  

These include a review of your goals and project form first, reviewing your site via aerial imagery and contour maps, and about an hour with you (and your family/spouse/partners) on the computer (Skype connection) discussing the most pressing questions you have about your project, identifying primary opportunities and challenges to reaching your project goals and other foundational aspects of your project.  These consults cost $275 for about one hour with you (plus about 30-45 minutes of Ben Falk's research time happening before the call) and can be extended by the hour if needed, for $125/hour.  (These consults include a followup email to answer some questions within the cost shown here). These are conducted via Skype for screenshare abilities. Please email for more on these consultations. If you'd like to begin the process without delay please pay for the consult using the button below and we will send you the Goals Form immediately.  
NOTE: All work with our clients is always carried out under a professional duty of confidentiality.  

Type of Consult

"The one hour consultation was incredibly valuable.  It helped me look at the contour lines to pick a house building site.  When I went back to look at the property after the consultation, I could see it with new eyes..."  ~P. Studley, Amherst, NY

"We really appreciate you sharing your vast experience.  We found the consultation very helpful!  Feel free to use us as reference." ~Phil Gordon, Chester, PA

"It was very helpful to have a live discussion with Ben and work through the analysis of the terrain features when identifying the most optimal building site for our homestead. Ben truly listened to our plans and concerns and worked through the process in a very informative and beneficial way. I highly recommend this consult before you break any ground on your land to make sure your plans are optimized for your goals. We received more information and guidance from Ben than we thought before the consult, and he even reviewed how we can start gathering supplies to compost to be a resource available in the years to come. Ben took our input and our goals sheet and put together an amazing plan to start the design and building processes for our homestead. Worth every penny, we feel like we have a partner and a wealth of knowledge in our tool belt for years to come." ~Jesse and family, Tennessee
