What makes a build expensive?
I thought it might be helpful (and eye-opening) to list a few things that make building a house more expensive.
Here is what I have learned from my floorplan designing.
A lot of jogs in the plan will add cost.
If you have too great a depth, your trusses will have to be custom which will cost you more money. This has been really frustrating for us in designing our plan. We are right at the limit to how wide we can be and need to scootch things another foot to make a few things work. Blah.
These are two I did not know about.
Care to add to the list? Maybe something that surprised you as you built? Or as you were designing?
