Ahh, the bottom line. Actually it is often the first question I get asked but is the most difficult without getting a lot of additional information from you. The infamous “How much does it cost to build per square foot?” question has so many different factors that can widely change this cost. It is a good tool to get a ballpark number but you cannot say it costs $xxx per square foot without having all the information to put together for what you would like. For example, you can take the same exact home plan and add a geothermal heating system, 3rd stall to the garage, wrap around porch, fireplace, tile floors, screened porch, etc., etc. which all add cost but do not add any square footage which equals a higher price per square foot than the standard plan. I can give you a rough range but until a builder has all the other information it is very irresponsible to say what this cost is.
Having said all that, I know you cannot make a decision to build a home without knowing the cost and I am happy to work with you to come up with a price. Once we find a plan and pick out the home features I can come up with a complete price for your new home typically in 8 to 10 working days, depending on the complexity.
