The following analysis estimates the cost to build a using US National Average costs from 2013 RSMeans cost data. Costs are derived from a building model that assumes basic components, using open shop labor for a square foot building.
Scope differences and market conditions can cause costs to vary significantly. To see an estimate of the costs to build a in a specific city or metropolitan area, go to our index of models by state.
NOTE: This cost estimate uses 2013 RSMeans data. A more accurate estimate using current RSMeans cost data is available on RSMeans Online - our online cost estimating tool.
