Construction costs - Discontinued feature
Due to confusion with some customers and an "estimated" cost-to-build versus real-world construction
costs based on final specifications, local labor rates and material costs, etc, this feature has been
removed from our site.
Final specifications can cause actual costs to vary
significantly on the same plan. For example, one
may install inexpensive vinyl flooring while another installs a high-end marble floor covering.
If that same trend extends across the entire project, one would cost a great deal more
than the other, even though the same design is being built by both parties.
With some customers having requested a guarantee on the
construction estimates previously shown on our site, we have had
to remove this information/feature. Given the above example and
the fact that we must rely on third-party information for most
figures, this is an impossible guarantee to make; not just for
PlanSource, Inc but any designer and/or plan provider. Final
construction costs are always determined between the owner and
their builder through contract negotiations, specifications and
other related matters.
- We appreciate your understanding.
Should you wish to have rough figures before committing to
a full plan package, we suggest ordering a
for the plan you are interested in building. This
can be used to consult with local professionals to get the best
estimates for your area with minimal upfront cost. As always, the
study set cost is credited toward the full plan package per the
(Time constraints apply.)
