I have a 9 acre lot about 30 miles outside of Atlanta, GA. I plan on building a 3100 sq. ft. house about 500 feet from the road. Got an estimate to clear 1 acre for $4,000, but this does not inlcude him cutting for the basement (2,100 sq. ft.) or grubbing for the driveway (approx. 600 linear feet). Is this a reasonable amount for the clearing? Also, what is a reasonable amount for cutting the basement and the driveway. There is no trees leading upto the driveway, only grass. Thanks, Eric

The clearing and fill for my lot approx 200 x 140 cost $7100 and unfortunately due to all of the rain in Florida we will have to fill again and pack the dirt prior to building. I recommend getting other estimates just for comparison.

Rough cut on driveway in Colorado: ~ $1 per square foot, so a 12' driveway 1000' long is 12k. This is for a rough cut, clearing, grading, but no top material. Shop your excavators, especially those that are used to working in your area. They will all have clauses to get them out of their price when they hit unexpected underground problems (rock, shale, etc) but some are better than others. I had two good excavators bid on my project, one indicating that rocks would be removed at additional cost, the other indicating that his price was to get the job done. I went with the second, (who had a better price anyway) and he even ended up blasting to get the road in. No extra charge. I was surprised! The difference was that the second one was used to the area, knew the geology, and did his own blasting, instead of hiring it out.

Julian, Yes, I have only lined up a couple of contractors so far, but I will be lining up more over the next couple of weeks. Eric
