What do you charge Per Square Foot to build a home?

There are many questions that need to be answered prior to determining a Cost-Per-Square-Foot analysis of a new home. We need to consider:

  1. The shape of the outside perimeter is an important consideration in estimating the total construction cost. Generally, the more complex the shape, the more expensive the structure per square foot of floor area. The shape classification of multiple story or split-level homes is based on the outline formed by the outer most exterior walls, including the garage area, regardless of the varying level.
  2. Two story homes cost less to build PSF; As there is a smaller footprint with less foundation and less roofing.  Mechanical and plumbing systems are also more compact.
  3. Site conditions must be considered:  E.g. tree and shrub removal, soils import or export requirements, condition and type of soils (this drives overall design and cost of home foundation).
  4. Client finish selections: E.g. Cabinets, appliances, flooring, tile, granite, lighting, stone, stucco, roofing etc…

The bottom line:  After a lot is selected and The Sterling Design Questionnaire is completed;  We will have adequate information to determine a Cost PFA Square Range.
