Costs To Build A New Home
Here are some factors that affect
the costs of your homes construction:
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
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
While a house next to my lot might have costs $100/sq
ft, one up the street might have been $120/sq ft.
