I entirely built all the homes I have lived in. Footings, foundation, framing, wiring, furnace,and ducts, siding, roofing, I mean EVERTHING. The thing I recommend hiring out is the drywall. My cost was always less than half of what you would pay a builder. You must keep in mind it is a huge job that takes all you spare time for a year or more. You will lose 10 to 20 LBS. I am in MI.

I built my home a year ago. It is approximately 2010 square foot and it cost me around $160,000 that is not including the land I put it on....it was bought before I built my house. Also keep in mind that the price you get won't include seeding the lawn....a patio and side walks or landscaping. I did all of that my self and have about $5,500 in that.

Big Super is right on. I live in Boston and the rate is $100 to $150 depending on appliances kitchen and bath. If you want all the nice stuff you will be on the high end. If you don't care it will be on the low end.Good LuckMoskie 257

Got you beat..a 39 foot trailer while building my log cabin.I live in SW Washington.Cost has been very high...most contractors raped me and did a lousy job..figured I could do better myself..I do it for pride and the know age that I did it myself..so am doing it myself..2 years and still not done, but am living in it.Needs more finish work and just starting on the basement now.Built my kitchen cabinets using Cherry wood from my land,most of the rock work is from my land too, kind of hard to put a price on all of that.A stick house is MUCH more cheaper to build

Sounds like you are getting gloom and doom and survival of the fittest. I have built five homes. I use local sub-contractors, balanced between cost and quality reputation. Granted I live in Missouri, so there will be some cost variation. First you have to convince the bank you know what you are doing. You do this by making them think you know what you are doing. Take a little time and do some book reading on building from the ground up. Get familiar with terminology. example: floor joists, ceiling joist, sill plate, roof decking, footer (footing), foundation (could be basement walls). Be able to recall some contractors names.Find out what permits you will need. Then take your plans to some lumber stores, for material cost estimates. The first time I went for a loan, I picked out five banks and rated them on a scale of 5-1. 5 being the least likely to loan me money for house building. I went to see the loan officer of this bank first, not to get a loan, but to learn what the bank was interested in as far as loaning me money to build. When I got to bank # 1, I sounded like I had built lots of houses. Building is both satisfying and frustrating, but the money saved (and earned when you sell) is worth the problems

Depending where you live in BC (Vancouver, the mountains, Victoria), costs typically run around $60-$100 per SF, depending on the level of finishes in the house. Best bet is to contact 3 local housing contractors & ask them for historical price per Square Foot (SF) for a single story house. They should be able to rattle the figures off the top of their head.Take the price per SF, multiply it by the desired size of your house, and you should have a total cost. To be safe, and 15% for unforeseen items.
