5-6 a sq ft. Get some Mexicans. They'll throw it up in 10 days.

Where?
New construction in Uclub runs about 180 SF. In Bocage probably 230-250. Custom will run you more depending on your taste.

yeah, me too

i was thinking $150/sf would be tough to achieve with high efficiency and some appointments throughout.

re: how much can you build a luxury home for per square foot?
Dallas is cheaper to build than BR. The cost of the property will determine as well but if you are backing that out you have a lot of other factors particularly if building on acreage as opposed to a subdivision.

Those being, water, dirt work ( building a pad) soil testing, how far running power and sewer etc...numbers that add up.

Finishes are a big expense. Cabinets, flooring, appliances, fixtures, doors, wood windows, hardware etc...those are huge variables.

Framing a house in BR will run about $4.50 to $5.00 for a good framer. You can get it cheaper but you can huff and puff and the shite might fall down too.

Sheetrock hang, tape and float about .60 sf

Electrical and plumbing rough in about $2.00 a foot then goes up depending on how "custom" you want

Digging footings .25 a sf, placing concrete about .40 a sf.

You can build in BR minus the cost of the property, subbing yourself for $150 a sf for mid range construction. Of course you can go up or down from there.

That is BR though which is a different, much different market than Dallas.

thanks, martini

i can figure finishes in my sleep, just a bit rusty on the slab, superstructure, skin, windows and roofing cost.

is it possible to build a 7000sf home for less than a million? (if i have a site out of the equation)

My company built a 7600sqft house in BR a few years ago and I think it came in at $125.
