Costs To Build A New Home
Here are some factors that affect the costs of your homes
Size - While a larger home will costs more to build, the
overall costs per sq ft will be lower than a smaller home. Certain built in items are spread
out over a greater area. Plumbing costs, delivery costs, quantity of materials purchased,
cabinet costs, etc, are spread out over a larger area.
Design - Roof pitch, roofing material, number of windows,
number and sizes of doors.
Foundations - A monolithic slab on a level lot is a simple
building pad with minimal dirt work. A home with a sloping/steep lot requires excavation,
additional block work, waterproofing, drainage, pier and beam construction, and backfill.
Utilities - A house with city water does not have to drill a
well. A home with city sewer does not have to pay for soils testing for a septic system or
pay to have one installed.
At the time of this writing, my wife and I have purchased a piece of property and
have our house on the market. I find myself trying to do the same thing my house plan clients
do. I am asking friends that are in the construction business, "How much you think I can
build this house for?" THEY HONESTLY CAN'T TELL ME!!
While a house next to my lot might have costs $100/sq ft, one up the street might
have been $120/sq ft.
My recommendation is to let me help you with your home plans, get them designed
exactly like you want, and then you can get that out to builders or sub-contractors for pricing.

you on the phone. I do not take the hours that it takes to comb through article after article
checking for errors in grammar. Please excuse any errors and take heart in knowing I will
spend many more hours making sure your home designed correctly than I will making sure an article is perfect.
