We’ve Been Building Custom Homes for Over 45 Years
Constructing a new house from scratch may seem like an unbelievable dream. It costs too much or it’s just too difficult. In reality, the costs of building new are extremely predictable vs. adding-on or renovating. Plus, the long term savings and investment are far greater! At Mongold Homes, we take all of the guess work out and make sure that your exact dream becomes a reality. And with discounts from suppliers and the loyalty of our sub-contractors, we do it in a timely manner and for less than you might think!
What is the average cost per sq ft for new construction?
We get this question a lot and it’s one of those questions that’s impossible to answer. Houses are all different. A house with a complex or “choppy” roof is going to cost more per square foot than the same size house with a simple gable end roof. A simple house with extensive wrap-around covered decks or patios will cost more per square foot than the exact same house without. And then there’s the interior finishes! Quartz countertops or granite? Engineered hardwood floors or vinyl plank? As a fully custom builder, we prefer to take a look at your plans and talk a little about what you want in a home. We can then give you a “ball park” idea of the cost of your specific home within a matter of days.
Can we use our plans or yours?
Either one is fine! We do however have to start with a set of plans. They are the backbone to every project and are critical to accurate pricing. We have a multitude of plans in-house and we work hand-in-hand with a draftsman that can show you hundreds of plans or even turn your own drawings into a full scale plan set.
Can you build on our lot that we already own?
Absolutely! We will do a free site evaluation to go over your options and see what obstacles may be present. We can usually get an idea of what utilities are available at that time as well. If you don’t have a lot, our real estate agent can help you find one. We also keep up a good rapport with local developers which can help facilitate purchasing a lot from them.
