Construction Costs

The modern, sustainable homes that we design are primarily located in NY’s Hudson Valley and Long Island regions. In these areas, the cost of construction for a custom home is roughly $325/sqft with Mid-Range Finishes. (These costs can be broken down to $250/sqft for basic "core and shell" architecture and an additional $75/sqft which includes interior materials and detailing.) Select a different quality of finishes to see other cost options.

Acquisition Costs

Our calculation for acquisition costs take your submitted land cost and add a factor of 4% for closing costs. (This does not include the realtor's commission since it is typically paid by the Seller.)

These numbers assume a safe, vacant lot with easy access to utilities (water, electric & sewage.) Our calculations include $20,000 for permits and fees associated with the due diligence process in purchasing vacant land. However, a site that requires a tear-down of an existing structure, facilitation of utilities and/or an inspection of potentially hazardous situations should assume additional costs. If your property has some of these challenges and/or you're having trouble finding the perfect property, contact us HERE.

We will be happy to guide you through this process either way!

Landscape Development Costs

Our calculation for landscape & site work is estimated based on the size of the home and the level of work you'd like to see put towards the property.

BASIC NEEDS - Includes only work that is necessary to make your home move-in ready. This includes things like septic work, planting of grass or sod, and a no-frills driveway. (We estimate this as 5% of construction + acquisition costs)

CURB APPEAL - Include well-designed plantings and irrigation systems. It would allow us to provide you with a much higher quality driveway and fencing. (We estimate this as 10% of construction + acquisition costs)

HI-END AMENITIES- Pricing increases dramatically when we begin to include pools, outdoor kitchens, fire-pits, sport courts and extensive outdoor lighting. (We estimate this as 25% of construction + acquisition costs)

Professional Fees

Professional fees will vary based on the specifics of the project however, the industry standard for architectural fees is 8% of the cost of construction and the industry standard for interior fees are an additional 6%. Those numbers are calculated here based on the construction cost you’ve submitted above.

We have also assumed an additional $10,000 for additional consultants. Again, these costs will vary depending on your projects need for surveyors, expeditors, engineers, and lawyers.

Dont fret! Part of our firm's services will be to connect you with all necessary contractors.
