Cheaper to build 1 or 2 story home?
I'm a complete newbie who is anticipating building within 2-3 years. We are blessed with 100 acres of land, so space is not limited. We are looking at plans and have casually spoken with a builder regarding one plan in particular (Amicalola Cottage) but we haven't decided on anything for sure. I read on here today a passing comment that it is generally cheaper to build up (meaning a 2 or 3 story home) as opposed to out (meaning one level). We will probably build a home in the neighborhood of around 3500 sq. feet. Any ideas on this concept? Your thoughts will help as we peruse plans!
