Building a detached garage/apartment

OtisBuddyJuly 26, 2011

I am thinking of building a detached garage with an apartment over it. Is there anyway to get a very rough estimate of what it would cost to do a project like this???? Is there a general rule of thumb square foot cost?

Thanks in advance.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

The per-square-foot cost is what you calculate after it's built. Too many variables.
You'd do best to get a design, get it reviewed for code compliance in your area, and then get three bids (after researching builders in your area).
