Has anyone used building-cost.net to estimate their budget? How close was it to the actual finished cost of building your house? It factors in variations for quality, etc. Just curious if anyone has used it, and then O-B, ending up saving "X%".

Hi Jennifer -

I'm in the final planning stages of building a house near Hartsel, CO. As such, I have a pretty detailed budget in which I have about 80% confidence (I have a lot of actual quotes). If anything, I think my estimate is too low. After seeing your post I decided to do a sanity-check and compare my budget with the building-cost.net website estimate. The website says I should be able to build for $229k, and my estimate is $289k (excluding land, and I'm doing about 50% of the work myself).  I have several "special circumstances" with my project, such as building on 35 acres out in the boonies,  off-grid power, well, septic, etc... The things that are unique to my project would account for some of the difference between my estimate and the website, but even then the website estimate seems low.   In my opinion the building-cost.net website might be a good place to start, but every project is different, and no general estimate will be as good as getting real quotes.  Hope this helps.
