To estimate cost, I'll use the construction cost software as described on Getting Started.
Using this foundation shape for the foundation on the cost estimating software for Burlington, Vermont area, I came up with $302,134 including a General Contractor Markup of $35,746. That’s an approximate cost of $109 per sq. ft.
I came up with this estimate by using Quality Class 6 on the estimating software throughout the estimating process, except for the foundation where I used Quality Class 5 to indicate an unfinished basement instead of a concrete slab.
The cost to build for this example, or any house plan, can vary considerably depending quality of materials selected, and on actual bids for labor and material.
Cost estimates change with time. YOU can update this 2014 estimate to see if it has, as well as experimenting with different building quality inputs that affect the cost to build.
Keep in mind that these estimates are approximate and are just a guide. Until you actually start getting your own bids and estimates and entering them into your own spreadsheet (see my spreadsheet page for FREE spreadsheets), they will remain approximate.
