If there is one thing that both building designers and builders try to avoid until the tender process is estimating construction costs.
Construction costs can vary greatly depending on:
(1) site conditions & location
(2) desired levels of finishes
(3) building complexity
(4) weather conditions during the construction period
(5) buying power and business connections
But between having “no idea” and getting a full blown “builders quote” there are very few tools that can help you estimate the cost of your new house or renovation. That’s why Home Design Directory has created it’s own suite of cost calculators – to help people just like you to estimate construction costs in the very early stages of planning.
