Building-Cost.net features a comprehensive building calculator that estimates the cost of building a new home. The square footage of the house is only one of the factors used to estimate the cost.
Building-Cost.net uses factors including the exterior shape of the house and the quality of construction for items such as the foundation, windows, doors and electrical service. Other factors weighed include the quality of the kitchen, bathroom fixtures and plumbing service. The cost depends on whether the house features an attic, a basement or a garage. The house's building site also impacts cost, as does the extensive nature of a heating and cooling system.
