home construction costs have gone up considerably in the past few years, mostly due to all of the amenities now available.
bricks and stone and sand and cement haven't changed so much. steel fluctuates a little.
but it's seems for use the increase in costs are a direct result of more choices.
more choices in tile (if you can believe it).
more choices in plumbing and electrical materials and fixtures.
a far greater choice of roof systems are now available as well as the ever rising cost of wood all contribute to higher costs.
labor has gone up as well, but unfortunately it is still very hard to find many skilled tradesmen.
i have 30 years experience in designing and construction and with that used to be able to build some pretty nice little homes for people at around $150M2.
those days are gone however.
a realistic budget for what you are looking for would be what many have already said.... about $300M2.
that's with some very nice features such as a pressurized hot water system and nice kitchen cabinets and counter tops.
i typically budget in light fixtures and plumbing fixtures and if the client wants to step up it's easy to make the additional figures.
i do not include appliances or furniture.
start with a good design and it is easier to breakdown and do a budget so you can see where you might want to spend a little less or maybe a little more.
remember, if this is your retirement home or where you plan to settle down and raise a family, it's always best to wait until you have everything in place. do it once do it right.
the few things i would recommend buying a.s.a.p is your wood for whatever you are having made, such as doors and door jams, cabinets and such.
wodd is getting more expensive every day and it's never too early to get a stack drying under some tarps.
good luck with your project.
