Before a customer makes a final decision on the right house plan or purchases blueprints, we are often asked how much it will cost to build a particular home. The experts at The House Plan Shop understand this is an important factor in making a final decision, as customers want to be sure they can afford to build the house of their dreams without going over budget. However, we know the costs for materials and labor vary greatly from one state to the next and sometimes even within the same city, making it impossible for us to provide an estimate for one of our house plans in any specified location. We can’t possibly know all the going rates for materials and labor all across the US and Canada. So, how can you get an estimated cost to build your desired home plan? We recommend checking with a few local builders or lumberyards. If you opt to check with builders, you can look in the phonebook, online or check with other family members and friends who have built a home in the past. Builders and the professionals at lumberyards deal with construction and materials costs on a daily basis and know the going rates for materials and labor in your particular area. Just ask for an estimated cost to build. Often, these professionals will quote a dollar amount per square foot. Be sure to ask what this quote includes as sometimes it will not include the heating and cooling system, foundation materials and a few other things. Checking locally is the best way to get an estimated cost to build for any of our house plans. We know it is a little more leg work for you, but, the estimate you obtain locally will be more accurate than any estimate we could provide because our estimate would be a guess.
If you are ready to build a new house, but are challenged by a hillside lot, mountainous property or a lot that slopes in one direction, you’ll need to find a house plan suitable for a sloping lot. Perhaps you are building on waterfront property that slopes to a stunning lake or on steep and rugged terrain with a panoramic view. You’ll want to consider many of the house plans in our Waterfront Home Plan collection and those in our Mountain House Plan collection. They are designed to accommodate sloping lots. Most of these designs are fashioned on a walkout basement allowing you to dig into the ground and create extra living space below the main level of the home. Furthermore, the walkout basement allows you to walkout out to your backyard or side yard from the lower level. Some of these designs offer drive-under garages using the lower level for parking and giving you the entire main floor for living space. In most cases, sloping lot house plans enjoy a view and feature large decks and porches as well plenty of windows oriented toward the view, taking advantage of the natural beauty of the property or lot. Sloping lot house plans are sometimes referred to hillside home plans and can vary in size and architectural style. They can be one or more stories and range from weekend cabins to luxurious primary residences. Many split-level home designs work well for front-sloping lots and incorporate at least a few stairs to access the front door.
