  • Ballpark per square foot cost guestimates...

    ...comparing production built versus custom built?

    We're contemplating building a home on our own land in the coming years, if possible. We've got a good handle on local new construction pricing, generally speaking, but we also understand that there will be a difference in material costs considering the "quality" of windows, millwork, and other items that go into production/tract built homes that we either wouldn't have access to, or wouldn't use even if we did. It'd also a challenge (if not impossible) to break out the cost of the land from the price of a tract built home.

    So I'm anticipating a premium for custom built, just not at all sure what kind of percentage increase. I realize it will be case by case, but I'm just trying to come up with some budget ranges. The land has not been purchased yet.

    Thinking 2500-3000 feet, brick veneer, 1.5 story, 3 BR, 2.5 bath.
