Cost to build

The following is for informational purposes only.

In the US or Canada, per square foot costs for materials range between US$75 and $250, with labour another US$75 to $250 per square foot. 

To get up-to-date, locally relevant pricing for the materials that will be required to build your cabin, take your set of plans, no matter where you purchased them, to a building materials supplier to receive a ‘materials takeoff’ and price for everything that they are able to supply. If you are building your cabin yourself, *this* amount,  plus another 15% for contingency, is your ballpark cost to build, plus your time.

Complete and even more accurate building budget calculations can be made by a local, experienced builder who has considered all your unique requirements and the building site’s unique characteristics. It can be worth paying a small consultation fee to gain their real-life insights into building costs in your particular area.
