Bottom panel for Description
However, it is simply not realistic to expect anyone to be able to provide a narrowly defined dollar estimate to build or remodel any house without first knowing much more about the project in question. Expensive "stuff" used to build a small house could easily make that house cost more per square foot than modest "stuff" used to build a large house. Houses with basements typically cost more per square foot than those built on a concrete slab. Two story homes generally cost less per square foot than ranchers because the roof assembly, which usually costs more than a second floor assembly, can cover twice as many square feet. When the square footage of a large, relatively empty, garage is factored into the cost of a home the average square foot costs will be reduced. While a grand foyer, a two story open space, or ceilings that are taller than normal increase the volume of a house but not necessarily the square footage, which increases the overall price per square foot of that home. Hardwood floors, luxury marble baths, gourmet kitchens with built-in refrigerators and granite countertops all cost more per square foot than unfinished basements or garages, wall-to-wall carpeting, fiberglass tub surrounds, vinyl flooring, and post-formed laminate kitchen counters.
