Budgeting is easy.  Start with the money you have to spend, then take the square footage you want to get, and divide them.  Next step, go around to contractors and keep reducing the SF until they stop laughing you out of their offices.  Finally, go find an architect with your contractor "approved" budget.

  1. build a 1:1 scale model of the project
  2. Place dollar bills one square foot o.c 
  3. Continue to stack dollar bills one square at a time until you run out of money 
  4. Count a stack
  5. That’s your price psf budget. 
  6. Gather all money up
  7. Hire an architect

This would work too. I like this because it's obviously what happens in real life, after the change orders and the contractor's cut, and developer's, all the subs get paid etc, seems like there's no money left!  Then hire the architect

Make sure to go low so you can nickel and dime the owner with change orders later. That’s how the GCs do it.
