How much does it cost to build a home in Mason County?
As home builders, the question “how much does it cost to build a home in Mason County” is the most common question we get (perhaps aside from “how much does it cost to build a home in Kitsap County” or “how much does it cost to build a house in Pierce County?”). Unfortunately, the answer is always “it depends”. While some builders may offer an estimation per square foot, these estimations vary wildly. The true cost to build a home depends on a number of factors, including the plans you choose, your lot (location and topography), the finishes and fixtures you choose, and the time of year you build. Here’s a general breakdown of what we look at when we determine costs to build homes:
Plans: the most simple and inexpensive kind of house to build is a box or rectangle shape, with a “gabled” (or gently angled) roof. If the home has several “jogs” (dimensions outside of a square or rectangle) multiple angles, or steps in the foundation for example, the cost can quickly climb. If you choose a roof with multiple angles can cost almost twice as much. If you would like to see plans we’ve built in the past, we can give you an educated guess. If you choose plans off of the internet, we can build it and estimate the costs, but we won’t know the true cost until the county approves final engineering.
Lot: When approving plans to build homes, the county looks for three things: can you turn on a light? Can you flush a toilet? And can you take a drink of water? If your lot already has power, water, and sewer or septic, you’re in good shape. If the land is completely raw, that’s no problem. Just understand that the costs to add these in are included in your budget. If a contractor ever gives you an estimation per sqft you should ask if it includes these things. Lastly, when shopping for lots, consider that the easiest land to build on is cleared of trees, flat, and dry.
Finishes and Fixtures: There is a wide variance of cost here. Granite counters cost significantly more than formica laminate, for example. When you work with us, we build you a customized shopping list, with a budget for all finishes and fixtures. Have a question about a specific kind of flooring, trim, paint, windows etc? Feel free to contact us at any time!
Time of Year: This one is more difficult to estimate, but our best advice is to keep an eye on the labor and construction market. Please also understand that if you’re given a bid estimate by an individual contractor, most of their estimates are only good for a set amount of time, because the market can fluctuate.
How Long Does It Take To Build A Home?
Just like the cost, the second most common question we get as home builders is “how long does it take to build a home in Mason County” (or “how long does it take to build a home in Kitsap County” and “how long does it take to build a house in Pierce County?”). Unfortunately this also varies significantly. It greatly depends on factors such as the condition your land is in (does it already have water, sewer/septic, power etc), the time of year you build, the size of the house, and the features you choose. Here’s some helpful information:
Building Phase and House: Obviously, the larger and more complicated the house is, the longer it will take. Some other questions to ask yourself are: have you looked at land yet? Do you already own a lot? Do you have or need financing? Finding and acquiring land and getting a construction loan is a process in of itself. If you need help finding land or need a feasibility study, we can help! If you need recommendations, please ask us for a recommendation to one of our preferred lenders!
Land & Permitting: If the land doesn’t yet have power, sewer/septic, and water, understand that these things will be required before you will be approved for permitting. Permitting is something that’s entirely outside of our hands, and can take a few weeks, or up to several months.
