This 10% covers up-front costs and the purchase and ordering of materials with a longer delivery time. A specific draw schedule pertaining to your contract total covers the balance of payments. For instance, when the foundation of your project is complete, another payment of 15% is due. This happens in stages until the home is complete and the final draw is written.
