The wide range of variables throughout a construction project can vary greatly depending on the quality of finishings, construction methods, and a host of other small details that all contribute to the project’s overall cost.
Construction projects are stressful, both for the builder and the client. At Youngberg Builders, we strive to eliminate as much of that stress through streamlining our building processes to ensure no detail is overlooked. We also aim to eliminate our client’s stress as well.
The question on everyone’s mind is almost always, “What’s this going to cost?”
While we don’t have the capacity to give you an exact price without a few conversations and a lot of time, we can give you an idea of what to expect beforehand based on what our prior customers have paid for similar projects to assist you in planning your budget.
The following prices for both ICF and traditional wood frame construction are based on the new construction of a 2,000 sf home and represent a broad spectrum of finishes.
While every project is unique, and this pricing covers a broad spectrum of options, we hope it serves to give you a ballpark on what to expect your investment to be.
ICF homes are built using Styrofoam forms that stay in place once the concrete is poured. This construction method produces an exceptionally durable structure with outstanding insulating properties that reduce heating and cooling costs, keep outside noise at bay, withstand natural disasters, and several other benefits not realized with traditional construction.
You can expect a 2,000 sf ICF home to fall in the range of $650,000 and up.
Traditional Wood Frame
Homes built with traditional wood frame construction are less expensive than an ICF home. While there is nothing wrong with traditional wood frame construction, ICF structures have clear advantages when it comes to energy-efficiency and durability.
For the same home built using traditional wood frame construction, you can expect to invest $550,000 to $700,000.
With many unforeseen variables, it’s difficult to give an accurate estimate for remodeling. On average, though, you can expect to invest $175 to $225 per square foot for your project.
