Unfortunately I did not find your book in time for that house but we have it for the next one. It is a great book, full of useful information. Lots of it seems like common sense after you read it, but I did not have the common sense to think of it before I read it.

Hello Peter,

I'm not exactly sure where Cottage Grove is... I live nearby Portland.  The local cost to build a custom home by a GC will vary of course depending on your site, your finish choices and how much overhead and profit your particular builder charges.  That all being said from my research you are looking at a low end of $100 psf (very basic starter type house with a minimum of detail and low end finish) and up to $150 for a custom home depending on your choices. In my area nicer spec houses (granite counters, tile and hardwood floors, detailed moldings, nice exterior finish) are going for $185-$230 psf including land in subdivisions -- the higher end usually means a nicer neighborhood or a better lot.  Of course above that the sky is the limit if you are building a 'luxury' or 'dream' home. Most of the people on this forum are looking to manage the project themselves, I am looking at about $100-$110 psf for a custom home, managing the project myself. You might try building-cost.net for a rough estimate of what you are looking to build.  I have used it as a "ballpark" estimating tool and it seems to be pretty close to the numbers my other research is giving me.

I hope that helps,

Barbara
